    MOVIE REVIEW: 'White House Down'

    "White House Down" is the sort of movie that rewards low expectations. Fortunately, moviegoers were well primed with the similarly themed "Olympus Has Fallen" earlier this year. All "White House Down" needed to beat the competition was to be competent, or pretty close.

    'Olympus Has Fallen' box office: Hollywood fooled again

    Biblical drama isn’t the only entertainment genre with a stealth market invisible to Hollywood. Here’e another: patriotic action thriller. “Olympus Has Fallen,” an unapologetically flag-waving action spectacle centered around a North Korean plot to seize the White House and take the president hostage, took in $30.5 million at the box office over the weekend, beating consensus prerelease expectations in Hollywood by about 50 percent.

    'Olympus Has Fallen' director Antoine Fuqua: U.S. flag 'represents freedom ... why not wave it?'

    There’s no missing the patriotic imagery in “Olympus Has Fallen,” a high-octane action thriller about a splinter group of North Korean terrorists who invade the White House and hold the president hostage.

  • Review: 'Olympus' is tense yet generic

    In a week when North Korea posted a homemade video showing the U.S. Capitol building being destroyed by a missile, what more logical response could Hollywood offer than a macho thriller about a Secret Service agent who takes on North Korean terrorists who attack the White House? The first of two similarly themed action dramas set for this year ("White House Down" arrives in June), "Olympus Has Fallen" will put to the test the question of whether American audiences are ready, 12 years after 9-11, to watch, strictly as disposable popcorn entertainment, a film in which the United States and some of its most prominent landmarks are devastated by foreign terrorists.
