Starring: Gerard Butler, Alon Boutboul, Radha Mitchell, Aaron Eckhart
The Butler did it. Olympus Has Fallen was a guilty pleasure – a Die Hard-lite action flick with Gerard Butler as a former Secret Service man who singlehandedly takes down a North Korean terrorist cell that’s invaded the White House.
It was big, brash and brutal, and the stakes were high. Now Butler’s back, this time accompanying the President (Aaron Eckhart) on a trip to the British capital to attend the funeral of the recently deceased PM, along with every other world leader. Security is on high alert, so what could possibly go wrong? Everything! A cleverly conceived plot by a terrorist mastermind unleashes mayhem on the city, leaving Butler and the Prez on the run from an enemy who could be anyone, from the Palace Guard to Scotland Yard’s finest. Which doesn’t say much for British security and MI6. Big. Loud. Dumb. Fun.
