The White House is invaded and captured by a terrorist mastermind. Unfortunately for him, there is a former presidential guard trapped in the building, and he decides to do the right thing and take on the baddies, putting his intimate knowledge of the White House to good use.

Tomatometer quote iconIt's far from original, but Olympus Has Fallen benefits from Antoine Fuqua's tense direction and a strong performance from Gerard Butler -- which might just be enough for action junkies.
