Olympus Has Fallen

olympushasfallenJust saw Olympus Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler as an ass-kicking Secret Service agent.  It’s a fairly familiar formula, nothing you haven’t seen before in Die Hard or Under Siege.  North Korean terrorists somehow manage to take over the White House, and Gerard is the hero on the inside, who thwarts the plot from within.  Plenty of good action scenes if you can set aside the implausibility of the story, though I wouldn’t pay full price to see it (though, to be fair, there are very few films I’d pay full price to see).  Cheers.
