In the movie Olympus Has Fallen the main character Mike Banning is a former presidential guard who lost his position as a guard due to a tragic accident in the opening of the movie.

Best part of story, including ending: What I liked about Olympus has Fallen is the amount of suspense you witness while watching the movie. It has quite a bit of intensity and the story line leaves you wondering what the outcome of the movie will be.

Best scene in story: There are many scenes in the movie that I enjoyed but one in particular is the ending fight scene between Mike Banning and Kang.

Opinion about the main character: I enjoyed the main character because of his cleverness and his ability to find a way to help the president escape from the White House. Mike Banning has much in depth knowledge on the inside works of the White House and uses as much knowledge to find a way to make the man responsible for the kidnapping of the president to surrender.
