When the White House (Secret Service Code: “Olympus”) is captured by a terrorist mastermind and the President is kidnapped, disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning finds himself trapped within the building. As our national security team scrambles to respond, they are forced to rely on Banning’s inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President and avert an even bigger disaster.


  • I enjoyed every minute of “Olympus Has Fallen”! In fact, it reminds me of a “Die Hard”-movie, but in The White House. The strengths of this film were the action itself, the strong cast, the character development and the story. Of course, there is the not original fact of a hero who cannot die, but I didn’t care. I expected a good and fast movie, full of action and great effects, and that’s what I got!

  • “Lets play a game of “Go Fu*k Yourself”, you go first.”

    Gerard Butler explodes onto the screen as a former Special Forces officer Mike Banning, who was recently removed as a Secret Service Agent due to failing to save the first lady. But when Korean terrorists led by Kang (Rick Yune) take over the white house and holds the president (Aaron Eckhart) hostage, it seems Mike is the only person capable of saving the president and confronting the terrorist.

    Gerard Butler is joined by Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd to bring you this action thriller by the director of “Training Day”.

    Do you remember “Die Hard 5” and how I didn’t really like it? Well Olympus Has Fallen is what “Die Hard 5” should have been. Good narrative, Good visual effects and Good bad guy (Something “Die Hard 5” lacked).
