Mike Banning, a tainted Secret Service agent who was removed from the presidential detail, is the only hope when a North Korean terrorist group attacks the White House and takes the President hostage. This entertainingly hard-boiled and violent action movie about one good guy against a gang of bad guys proves that the Die Hard formula is alive and well. The script here is dumb and implausible, not to mention similar to the superior White House Down, which was released only a few months later. Followed by London Has Fallen and Angel Has Fallen
