Which Action Movies Put the President in Danger?

Olympus Has Fallen 1 of 11

'Olympus Has Fallen' is being heralded as "Die Hard in The White House," starring Gerard Butler as a former Presidential guard and one-man army who mows down dozens upon dozens of North Korean terrorists inside 1600 Penn.

The movie starts with a bang in a terryifying assault upon D.C. and The White House before the President and his cabinet members are taken hostage. The President (Aaron Eckart), the Secretary of Defense and more are tortured by the North Korean terrorists in hopes of obtaining codes that would threaten U.S. security. That's the set-up for all the heroic and insanely violent Gerard Butler badassery that goes down in the two hours that follow.
