Olympus has fallen Was a good Die Hard-esque film. Go see it


+++ Update++++


Saw it last night. Very enjoyable. Finally a North Korean plot that is plausible and scary. I was surprised that I enjoyed it so much. The supporting cast does a great job and Morgan Freeman always plays a good president. I don't want to spoil anything but there were two points I didn't like.









(original post follows)
Starring Aaron Eckahart, Gerald Butler, Morgan Freeman, Dylan McDermott, Ashley Judd and Cole Hauser<B movie actor>

About the White house being taken by terrorists.

Trailer

The AC/130 firing at the White house reminds me of Call of Duty.
Love seeing Morgan Freeman in charge of the country when we are in trouble.

I think Hollywood has 2 to 3 of these films releasing this year. This film type will be the Armageddon/Deep Impact, Mission to Mars/Red Planet, The Illusionist/The Prestige, Volcano/Dante's Peak of 2013.

True, because the White House also falls in the new GI Joe movie.
