PG-13 | | Action, Drama, Thriller
While on a tour of the White House with his young daughter, a Capitol policeman springs into action to save his child and protect the president from a heavily armed group of paramilitary invaders.
The White House Tour Guide played by Nicholas Wright briefly shows the group the White House's film room, and mentions that they are in the part that was blown up in Independence Day. Roland Emmerich, this film's director, also directed Independence Day (1996), and attended the screening of that film at the White House in that very film room when Bill Clinton was President. Wright would later play Floyd Rosenburg in Independence Day: Resurgence (2016), just three years later.
You can't do this! I am still the President of the United States!
President Sawyer: Then consider this a coup d'état!
President Sawyer: Get this trash off my lawn!
Raphelson: You won't get away with this. I have friends, powerful friends!
President Sawyer: And I'll make sure every single one of them joins you in ...
When Cale sets fire to the White House, sprinklers are shown going off all over the house. This is a common movie mistake. Only sprinklers in the same room as the fire activate.
