Olympus Has Fallen

It takes fifteen minutes for your armed forces to reach the white house. We took it down in thirteen.

Gerard Butler plays an ex-secret service agent forced back into his job when Korean terrorists take down the White House and capture the president.

I’m a glutton for punishment but even I question my judgement in watching this one. If someone would have told me it was a crap Die Hard knock off I may have backed out.

This is boring, bland, unremarkable dross that I won’t waste many more words on. Even if you are after something brainless you should go elsewhere.

This is disappointing from Fuqua after the brilliant Training Day.
