When a group of heavily armed and meticulously trained extremists launch a daring daylight ambush on the White House, the President (Aaron Eckhart, The Dark Knight) and his staff are taken hostage inside an impenetrable underground bunker.

But as the Oval office and its environs sustain an aerial and ground attack, a disgraced former U.S. Secret Service agent, Mike Banning (Gerard Butler,300), finds his way into the besieged building to do the job he has trained for all his life: to protect the president - at all costs.

With tension rising, the Acting President (Morgan Freeman, The Dark Knight Rises) and US national security team must rely on Banning to rescue the President before the terrorists can unleash their ultimate, terrifying plan.

From visionary director, Antoine Fuqua (Training Day),Olympus Has Fallen is an electrifying, and inspired action thriller that will keep your heart pounding from start to finish!

Personally I think this is one of the most badass action movies since the days of die hard and under siege, this movie is so oldschool in its execution it's a fan boys dream, this movie basically is under siege 3 the only thing missing is Steven Seagal, it's a straight forward story about a gang of terrorists taking over one of the most secure location on earth the white house and one man has to stop them, Gerard Butler is awesome as the lead, great actor, he is a one man army on the inside fighting alone to rescue the president and kill the bad guys!! Its predictable yes but that's the way it always was with the oldschool classics, good guy kills bad guys!! A lone hero!! Great action scenes massive amounts of devastation and explosions and cool kills as Butler does his job as ex Special Forces turned presidential guard, if you love the original two die hard movies and under siege movies then this is a must, its oldschool in every way, great fun, very entertaining!!!! Director Antoine Fuqua has done some fine movies over the year but this is his best along with training day!! There are some good features on the here too, gag reel and a few featurettes of behind the scenes!!!

 Amazing

What a fantastic film. A cross between Under Siege and Die Hard. Great performances from all. A great set design of the White House and exterior. Very action packed as you would expect from a film like this especially the sequence of the White House being infiltrated about 15-20 mins long and very clever. Good fight scenes. A must buy for any action fan.

 Good Film but not quite Original

Cinematography and Sound effects are good, not too loud to overrun the dialogue. But the Film/Movie is not an Original plot, the whole sequence was taken from "Underseige" of Steven Seagal in the 90's; The action caliber were clearly of Bruce Willi's "Diehard series". Same Conflict, Different Theatre, not much twist. Overall a good film for its budget. I'll watch it again in my free time or on quite Sundays just to listen to the surround combat effects
