A nation's hopes rest in the hands of a former White House guard after the president is held hostage by terrorists in this action thriller from director Antoine Fuqua. Trying to adapt to civilian life after a tragedy ended his Secret Service career, former special forces veteran Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) is thrust back onto the front line when a group of terrorists led by Kang (Rick Yune) attack the White House and seize the president (Aaron Eckhart). Now, finding himself the last Secret Service man left alive inside the building, Banning, overseen by acting President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman), must bring all his special forces experience to bear as he embarks on a one-man mission to take out the terrorists and save the president.

There is a crazy trend in Hollywood of two similar films coming out one after the other, supposedly independently of one another. The latest situation was `Die Hard' in the White House. Historically, one film usually stands out as better and more successful, in the case of `Olympus Has Fallen' and `White House Down', the Gerald Butler vehicle was the more successful, but they are both pretty awful in their own way.

Butler plays Mike Banning, a guard who used to be detailed to the President (Aaron Eckhart) before an accident saw the death of the First Lady. When visiting the White House he becomes embroiled in a terrorist plot as a group of rogue North Koreans aim to take on America. In terms of empty headed action, there are some great sequences in `Olympus'. There is a lot of brutal deluxe, more `Under Siege 2' than the master class that is `Die Hard', but none the less, still fun. Butler is decent and actually pretty believable as a special agent who can kill with weapons or his hands. It is not Butler who is at fault in this film, but some of the absolutely ridiculous scripting.

The dialogue for one passes fun cheese and ends up in awful, but it is the plotting that fails the most. The President is held hostage and is forced into a Catch 22 situation of his own making; spot it yourself, but he basically hands over the reins of power to the bad guys - stupid. Not just stupid, but so poorly written that it ruins the film. All of Butler's work is kind of entertaining, but in between his bits you are forced to watch absolute bilge. Could have been a decent film had the script writers actually paid attention.

The 'White House' becomes under attack from both air and land.
a substantial terrorist force led by 'rogue' North Korean activist
'Kang' assisted on the inside by a trusted agent who's job
is to protect the president.......now in the White House bunker where
the president is being held hostage.
the demands.....withdraw the 7th fleet and troops that are stationed
in protection of 'South Korea'
the Commander in Chief 'Benjamin Asher' doesn't even know if his son
'Connor' is safe.
'Mike Banning' previously serving alongside the president once trusted
to protect both the president and family now appears to be the only agent
who is in a position to resolve the crisis.
an electrifying and action-packed thrill-ride,a little far-fetched perhaps,
however certainly well worth a spin.
Additional features include...'Gag Reel'(always worth a watch) 'The making
of Olympus has fallen' 'Deconstructing the Black Hawk sequence' and 'Ground
combat: fighting the terrorist' ...and more.
Hugely entertaining, certainly on par with 'White House Down'

Format: DVD
I have to be honest, I really wasn't expecting much when I went along to see this film. However, given that this project was helmed by Antoine Fuqua, the man responsible for Denzel Washington's Oscar winning turn in Training Day, I thought Olympus has Fallen might be a little edgier.

There's a nice bit of pre-amble, setting up Butler's back-story and it's not long before the bullets start flying and the bodycount goes through the roof. There's certainly no shortage of violence in this film and I was actually quite surprised at its "15" certificate, given the scenes of torture, stabbing, mutilation, suicide bombers and copious amounts of death by gunshot!

In effect, what we have here is Gerard Butler taking the lead role in a movie that, if made 25 years ago, would have went to the likes of Arnie, Sly or Bruce Willis. Olympus Has Fallen is a straight-up no-nonsense action movie where the good guy can't die and is always a better shot than the numerous villains he despatches!
This film lays it on pretty thick with the flag-waving and patriotism but I guess that with a movie that has as its central premise the White House being stormed and the President of the USA being held hostage, it comes with the territory!

Rick Yune is a suitably menacing screen presence and Aaron Eckhart is convincing as the American as mom's apple pie President while Morgan Freeman adds some gravitas to proceedings while Gerard Butler bumps off terrorists like he was in a video game.

This type of film has been done before (see the title of this review!) and if you've seen the trailer for this movie, you'll know you're not in for any big surprises but there's no doubt that Olympus Has Fallen is an entertaining and competent action film.

Watched this wearing my sceptics hat. Huge mistake. This really is not a bad film at all.. Stacks of action, but actually quite well choreograhed stuff, good casting - and well shot and directed. Yes, the storyline is simple enough - baddies storm the White House etc., and a hero emerges from the shadows...usual stuff. But this film does get into gear very quickly. The plot actually does have just a tiny element of credibility about it, a "just possible" scenario. The hero, Butler, carries off his role with style. There is a good casting line up for the baddies too. This film is about pure entertainment and for me, it works. Far superior to its "rival", "White House Down", this film really gets you drawn in and holds your attention throughout. Yes, it is a little over the top, but so too was "Bourne", and others. Once again, dont listen too much to the professional nit pickers. Sit back, watch and prepare to be entertained!
