Olympus Has Fallen

Rated R 120 min. 2013



In director Antoine Fuqua's swaggering action thriller, North Korean terrorists stage a bloody commando raid on the White House and take the president hostage. It's up to brooding Secret Service agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) to save the day by way of gun, knife and grim resolve. Olympus snaps together parts from a half- dozen other movies—Die Hard, Red Dawn, In the Line of Fire—with graphic violence and the military fetishism of a Tom Clancy book circa 1984. This stuff can be fun, but Olympus has no sense of humor about itself, and Butler makes for a gloomy hero. With Aaron Eckhart as the president, Rick Yune as the villain and Morgan Freeman in the Morgan Freeman role.
