10 Most Badass 'One-Man Army' Movie Scenes Of The Last Decade

9. Olympus Has Fallen - The President's Rescue

Extraction Netflix
Focus Features

Gerard Butler is already a force to be reckoned with on the big screen but none of his movies compare to his Olympus Has Fallen body count. The 2013 action movie pitted Butler's Mike Banning against a group of North Korean terrorists who hold the White House hostage.

Banning embarks on a modern Die Hard mission, taking out terrorists in a brutal and cold fashion while rescuing the President and the President's son in the process. But when Banning goes up against Kang, the leader of the terrorists, it's brute force versus acrobatic martial arts.

The whole rescue scene spills plenty of blood and breaks plenty of bones and Banning tears through the terrorists and Kang with calculated precision. Gerard Butler has never been shy of bloody violence but Olympus Has Fallen sees him at his most unstoppable. It's tough, ferocious, deadly and you wish it could never end.


If you have clicked on here, get ready to be bored. I'm just a 20 year old white male who has a (probably) unhealthy obsession with pop culture Film and TV. Handy in a trivia game but not much else. My parents were never murdered, I'm not avenging my dead wife. Just plain, old sat at a computer with a head full of knowledge I mostly don't use I was born and raised in the Black Country near Birmingham, England however am now living in Manchester, England after I moved here two years ago. I currently attend the University of Salford, studying Broadcast Journalism. That's it really. Told you there was nothing special. If you're really that desperate for something to do, follow me on socials. Yes, I do like that ego boost.
