Relations between North and South Korea once again ran high. U.S. President (Aaron Eckhart) is host to an emergency at the White House, Prime Minister of South Korea, to discuss the situation. Since the North Koreans can not be distinguished from the south, after a very short time it becomes clear that all members of the delegation – the terrorists, the president taken hostage, and above all America looming nuclear threat more real than in pictures instagrame Kim Jong-un. However, the White House is Mike Benning (Gerard Butler), a former head of the U.S. Secret Service, who was fired after the tragic death of the First Lady. Now Benning and his composure and skill – the only thing that can save the president and America’s faith in itself.
It makes sense that a movie with such a title would be political cud with predictable ending. Expectations are justified, although Olympus (codenamed White House) “falls” is not the end, but in the first half of the film. Traditional American shrines as president, the Stars and Stripes, the national idea, which is held every Carthusian action, balanced and realistic audible message that all the greatness of the empire – it is perishable, and destroy half of Washington, at the same riddle a hundred passersby can not only army of alien robots, but the average Asian gang anticapitalist. Pessimistic retained almost to the end. All VIPs, which seemed to be walking America, or sit in a bunker, handcuffed, or wrinkle their foreheads at the Pentagon and make mistakes because of his arrogance and folly. According to the law of the genre, the chance to save America receives only because half years before the events of the film take place in the film’s hero was fired.
“The Fall of Olympus” honestly fulfills all the required stamps, and send greetings, “Independence Day” and “Die Hard” is not to remember with tears of emotion just lazy. In the presence of a few jokes on duty (Sorry house-Nothing, it is insured), manly cheekbones Butler and political correctness. Slightly spoils the impression of an attempt to play in the latest TV news and confusion with the terrorists, who seem to be communist North Korea, and the like as if by themselves. In general, however, turned out quite a traditional genre thriller, cheerfully Action with good actors, where you can not think about nothing, to let off steam and enjoy invulnerable Hollywood consistently regardless Pyongyang denies any involvement or not.
