Olympus Has Fallen

North Korean terrorists storm the White House and take the President hostage. This ludicrous actioner strives to be as loud, violent, and patriotic as possible; director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) pulls out all the stops, openly evoking 9/11 and playing on the irrational fears of Tea Partiers and neoconservatives everywhere. Gerard Butler stars as a former Secret Service agent, his reputation tarnished by a tragic accident, who takes the situation in hand, his snappy one-liners and iron resolve fitting right in with the implausible premise. With Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman.
