Whenever a movie has what I call “military speak“…”Whiskey Tango Bravo do you copy? Hostiles approaching on your 6, defend Olympus at all costs, use all assets at your command! Heavy artillery on your doorstep in T minus 2 minutes. Light’em up!” or something like that, I’m all in. That means that I will most likely enjoy the Secret Service, action flick “Olympus Has Fallen“.
When the White House (Secret Service Code: “Olympus”) is captured by a North Korean, terrorist mastermind and the President is kidnapped, disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) finds himself trapped within the building. As our national security team scrambles to respond, they are forced to rely on Banning’s inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President, and avert an even bigger disaster.
Directed by Antoine Fuqua the movie has a loaded cast that stars Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman (VEEP), Aaron Eckhart (Commander In Chief), Ashley Judd, Dylan McDermott, Angela Bassett and Rick Yune. It opens on March 22nd. Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think.
