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.
There is some dodgy CGI on show in the trailer. It probably won’t be on anyone’s best film of 2013 list but I imagine this will be a fun action film to watch. Plus Fuqua made the excellent Training Day.
If I could just get past Butler’s dreadful accent.
Olympus Has Fallen is out on 22nd March.
