Description

When terrorists take down the White House code name Olympus, a disgraced Secret Service agent attempts to rescue the president of the United States in Olympus Has Fallen, an electrifying and inspired action thriller from acclaimed director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day). A small group of heavily armed, meticulously trained extremists launch a daring daylight ambush on the White House, overrunning the building and taking President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) and his staff hostage inside an impenetrable underground presidential bunker. As a pitched battle rages on the White House lawn, former presidential security officer Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) joins the fray, and finds his way into the besieged building to do the job he has trained for all his life: to protect the president – at all costs.

    That was truely bad. Are there minus stars? I think all concerned must have had problems on going at home to produce, act and star in this film. Film making isn’t easy. A quick buck when you don’t care. Film has fallen….!!! I’m not a gamer and i hope the game was /is better. Oh my lord that was bad.

    Typical right? I mean its just a typical House House American film, it is similar to White House Down... I need something new, different, this film is practically predictable after watching similar films. Aint that bad though
  • Die Hard Style

    This is not about a story line or real life, its about lots of shooting and things being blown up. Its friggin awesome for that. You want action and story then try Bourne films, Green Zone or Jack Ryan. You want Die Hard blow up, shooting and lots of killing then this is your film.
  • Its entertaining.

    Its very american obviously olympus has fallen.. so its going to be a very patriotic film. The film was very entertaining it had a Die Hard approach with Gerrard Butler being pretty awesome but.. the one this I didnt like was the villain he was just too quiet like as if he didnt have any character. It was dissapointing to be honest and so when it was all done.. It was done.. Just need a villain who has character to torment or atleast be confronting to the hero.
  • well executed

    this is not high brow entertainment, but it is a very well executed, slick action thriller which does well to suspend your disbelief until almost the end. perfectly suited for a saturday, stay at home, drink a couple of beers kind of evening. a couple of minor plot glitches but switch your brain off and you’ll enjoy it...
  • Awful but entertaining

    Typical American action movie: homeland about to be destroyed by evil terrorists but saved in the nick of time by lone hero. Very bad but also very entertaining.

    Didn't last the full movie as by the end I was so annoyed at the cliches and tropes I just had to leave.
