Gerard Butler is back to kicking ass and taking names – which is really, at the end of the day, where he belongs.

Not that the star of Olympus Has Fallen doesn’t have a solid history of such things. He’s built a career out of playing wise-cracking heroes who shoots now (or in the case of 300 tosses a spear) and asks questions later.

In today’s gallery, we check out the biggest and the baddest reasons why this Scottish hunk is still kicking ass.

Olympus is the latest action blockbuster for Butler and tells a tale that while played over-the-top, is not all that unbelievable.

Olympus Has Fallen opens in theaters everywhere March 22nd.

When the White House (Secret Service Code: “Olympus”) is captured by a terrorist mastermind and the President is kidnapped, disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning (Butler) finds himself trapped within the building. As our national security team scrambles to respond, they are forced to rely on Banning’s inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President (Aaron Eckhart), and avert an even bigger crisis.
