Film Review - Olympus Has Fallen starring @GerardButler

Film: Olympus Has Fallen

Cast: Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Rick Yune, Dylan McDermott
Director: Antoine Fuqua

Last week I managed to see this film.  Just make sure you don't arrive late and have to
walk around in the dark and step on other people's toes.  As I did.  #ThatAwkwardMoment

This movie is all about those guys who protect the President of the USA.  That's right
the secret service.  We see how Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) has to guard
the President (Aaron Eckhart)  and he has to make a decision at one point, a decision that
changes his life.

A year or so later we find him having to make another decision.  At this point
the President finds himself deep under the White House as terrorists attack.

This movie is full of many twists and turns and is a great action thriller.
It features an all star cast and some fine performances.

Well written and acted with some amazing action scenes.  Too many to mention.

A fine directorial turn by Antoine Fuqua.

Rating 9/10

Enjoy this Trailer.
