Omg Download Olympus Has Fallen Movie Release Now Video Film Olympus Has Fallen, watch here Now The story is not perfect. Butler's Banning, and the bad guys, hunt down the President's son throughout the middle of the film. The subplot's outcome seems somewhat unnecessary - and trite. Also, some Presidential sparing in a boxing ring at Camp David never fully materializes. Like in Battle: Los Angeles, some characters are only developed enough to become sympathetic cannon fodder for the audience. And lastly, the threats concerning Banning's wife Leah (Radha Mitchell, Silent Hill: Revelations 3D) by the villain seems to only result in an unfulfilled afterthought. Olympus Has Fallen (2013) Action | Thriller - 22 March 2013 (USA) Disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning finds himself trapped inside the White House in the wake of a terrorist attack; using his inside knowledge, Banning works with national security to rescue the President from his kidnappers. Director: Antoine Fuqua Writers: Creighton Rothenberger, Katrin Benedikt Stars: Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman Parents need to know that Olympus Has Fallen is an explosive action thriller about a terrorist attack on America, during which the White House is seized and the president kidnapped. Gerard Butler plays Mike Banning, a former presidential guard who fell from favor after a fatal accident involving the first lady (Ashley Judd). But when a terrorist attack disables White House security and the president (Aaron Eckhart) is abducted, Banning's inside expertise appears to be the country's only hope. This harrowing action film promises lots of explosions, violence, and high-impact special effects and looks most appropriate for older teens and adults. Director Antoine Fuqua and his writers set up a beautifully bloody first act. With military precision, the entire White House, called Olympus, falls quickly to the foreign aggressors. The body count and bullet count seems more appropriate in the beach landing at Normandy. The massacre is relentless and the tactics precise. Add in Gerard Butler's smoldering determination and some epic hand-to-hand fight choreography, and you have one heckuva ride.
