Olympus Has Fallen Review


Gerard Butler has shaken off the “Die Hard in the White House” title that has come with his latest film, Olympus Has Fallen. Where White House Down embraced that comment, they’ve shrugged it off as its own film because Gerard Butler isn’t everyman John McLane. The truth is that this is very much Die Hard in the White House but with an ex-Secret Service agent instead of the New York cop. Some moments of it are beat-by-beat, right down to the cigarette. Although the opening is a much grander entrance than in Die Hard with a full attack on the President’s residence. A massive scale launch that, for once, doesn’t skip on the blood.
