London has Fallen: This movie was decent, but it was a complete rip-off of "Olympus Has Fallen," which takes place in London instead of Washington D.C. Seriously, if you’ve seen "Olympus has Fallen" then you’ve basically seen this movie too. It has the same basic plot, the president gets captured...
