The White House is attacked and the President is being held hostage. Of course in this situation a army or National Guard couldn't save the day. So the future of America relies on Ex Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) to save the day.
Just like many other action films this one IS no different. It has a audience and I'm a member of it. I love watching these types of films and I will continue to watch them. I look for loud and exciting action sequences, cheesy one liners, great bad guys, and I base my overall view on those factors.
The action is non-stop in this film, the one liners are present and draw quite a few laughs. My only issue was the bad guy. I wish he was more involved. I wanted him to be cool, funny, evil, and/or likeable. But he was just a flat bad guy that never stood out. Everything else was really fun about this movie.
I give Olympus Has Fallen... 3 Stars!
Just wish a better bad guy would have been involved.
