Good Action but..

From a purely action movie perspective, the movie is fantastic. But the premise is silly. The behavior of the president and everyone but the main star could never happen in real life. I don't want to spoil the movie so I will just say that if the writer(s) could have come up with something more plausible or at least work with how we know the government would really respond the movie would have been far better.

I must say that Millenium films did a great job on Olympus Has Fallen. I live in Shreveport LA where a lot of this movie was shot and I seen the screens setup all over town. I was really excited to see how they were going to bring it all together and I have to say they did an AWESOME job. Action packed, I was sitting on the edge of my seat with the thrill and excitement. I like the fact they broke up the movie seriouness with some sly comments from Gerard at times, you know we were are all thinking the same thing. I will watch this movie again and I will add it to my bluray collection when it comes out. I would like to extend a thank you to all those people that worked to make this movie. I just happened to pick the 740 pm movie time to go see this movie on opening night. It was nice to see the Mayor of Shreveport and several other officials out with there familys to enjoy this movie as well.

This is a must see for the action flick buffs. Should win a lot of awards. I am going to see it a second time. It is that good.

Great action/military movie. Better than Die Hard & Independence Day! Was drawn into the story easily, on the edge of my seat until the end. Excellent acting performances by entire cast (Ashley Judd, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart (Harvey Dent - Batman series). Didn't like the shooting - turned away for some of it - but when it was done - it was more tastefully done than most movies of this genre. Not for kids under 15 or those with PTSD.

Olympus Has Fallen

I thought it was an excellent movie. It brought back feelings of 911. This movie makes you think about what could happen and the reactions taken. You get to appreciate what the White House Staff does. It was so real.
