REVIEW: Is this Die Hard at the White House or Batman at the White House? The basic story is that Scottish Batman (Elite Secret Serviceman Gerard Butler) wants to stab a bunch of League of Shadows (North Korean) terrorists in the brain. Harvey Dent, America’s White Knight (President Aaron Eckhart), has lost the love of his life and is struggling with how to move on. When Bane (Kang, Rick Yune) takes over Gotham (Olympus/White House) and threatens to blow up the city (the country), only Scottish Batman can stop him. Meanwhile, since Harvey Dent is captured, only Lucius Fox (Speaker of the House Morgan Freeman) can run Wayne Enterprises (the country) while Scottish Batman and Harvey Dent are under siege.
