OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN

A very good, if not original, action film. Once you suspend disbelief about the White House being taken so quickly (it couldn’t be that easy, could it?) and the apparent fact that Secret Service men have not been taught to take cover but instead to stand in the open and return assault-rifle fire with side arms, it becomes Die Hard at the White House, sans the wise cracks and the interesting villains. (See the White House Down review for a comparison.)
