Olympus Has Fallen is an action movie about the White House being taken down by a North Korean terrorist and his team as one lone Secret Service agent tries to save the President from his imminent death.
An out and out action movie Olympus Has Fallen pulls no punches. The violence is strong and frequent, several head stabbings included, and is not for the faint hearted. Filled with huge explosions, waves of patriotism, fight sequences and some edge of your seat moments it’s an excellent action movie. It’s great to see an action film stick to it’s guns so to speak and not dumb down the film for a lesser certificate.
In the future, Earth lies devastated and scorched as of a result of a decades-long war between humans and an invading alien race called Scavs. The majority of Earth’s population have long since abandoned the planet but a select few still remain. Among them is drone repairman Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) and his communication technician, Victoria (Andrea Riseborough). Safely stationed in the skies thousands of feet above, Jack is responsible for extracting vital resources from the planet’s surface. His job is nearly complete, but Jack’s life changes forever when he makes the fateful decision to rescue a stranger from a downed spacecraft. A stranger who apparently shares a connection to his past, which causes him to question all he knows, and Jack unexpectedly finds himself fighting for the future The fate of humanity now rests solely in the hands of a man who believed our world was soon to be lost forever.

You know what Hollywood does best? It shows us events that wouldn’t normally happen; a successful siege on The White House would be top of that list.
This screams ‘24’ style to me – and that’s a good thing!
