WHITE HOUSE DOWN is an action thriller in which a police officer is caught up in an attack on the White House.

Violence

Action violence is frequent and sustained, with a lot of explosions and exchanges of gun fire. Many individuals are shot, but there is only limited sight of blood on clothes or walls. At one point a character sustains an injury to his side that soaks his shirt with blood, but there is no sight of the injury itself. Fight scenes include some heavy blows and stabbings to a leg and a foot, but these are generally shown without much detail.

Threat

The police officer's young daughter is also caught in the attack on the White House and she is threatened along with other characters. In order to manipulate the officer the terrorists threaten to shoot her, but she is shown to be resourceful and brave.

Language

One use of strong language ('f**k') is used by the defiant President. Moderate language includes use of 'bitch' and 'prick'.

A passing sex reference is made in flirtatious banter between a couple about getting to "second base" but with no further explanation.
