Olympus Has Fallen(2013)

This was unexpectedly awesome. This is how you make an action movie. It follows the basic Die Hard formula and you have to suffer through the usual American flag waving and cliched cheesy patriotic speeches but that is a tiny complaint. It's fast paced, exciting and the bad guys are despatched with brutal efficiency. This isn't some naff action movie made for the teenage masses (I have low expectations of the Channing Tatum version of this movie due out later this year - White House Down), it's Jack Bauer meets John McClane vs a hell of a lot of baddies. :o)
