Energetic action thriller starring Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman. Mike Manning (Butler), Secret Service bodyguard, and buddy to the President, finds himself stranded in the White House following a terrorist attack. President Benjamin Asher (Eckhart) has been taken hostage and barricaded in a heavily armoured incident room deep in the bowels of the building and the place is swarming with hard-assed terrorists intent on mayhem. Can Mike find his way around the labyrinthine 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and save western democracy? You wouldn’t bet against it. But it will take some shooting… and hitting… and kicking. And there’s bound to be a twist or two. With Morgan Freeman as Speaker Trumball.
