Action packed - albeit extremely violent

OK, I will start by saying this movie is loaded with bad language and extreme violence, but that is to be expected, it is Rated R. All that said, the action is nonstop, with a few twists here and there (one of them being rather predictable). Gerard Butler is excellent, doing his american accent to perfection LOL, and playing the rough and tough guy very well. Aaron Eckhart is also terrific, as is Morgan Freeman and others. The casting is successful. I went into the movie thinking ok, I am looking forward to action, but also believing there is no real way this could ever happen. Though some of it is unrealistic, you still can see how it is possible that our white house is more vulnerable than we think. That makes the movie more enjoyable, but opens up a different can of worms ;)

This was one of the most exciting filmas I have ever seen. The shock of seeing the White House under attack and watching the President and other high officials abused, and in some cases killed was extraordinary movie making.

Olympus has blown my mind

Olympus has fallen was one of those movies that before you see it you think well since there's nothing better out...why not. Then it blows your mind! This movie was amazing from start to finish. Butler played his usual bad ***self amazingly. This movie keeps you pulled in from start to finish wondering whats around the next corner. Morgan Freeman is also amazing as usual but hey, what would you expect for god! If you don't like blood and gore is the only reason I would stay away but if that doesn't bother you this is a MUST see!

This really is a great movie - interesting premise and it's always great to see Gerard, Aaron, Morgan, and Angela on the big screen. The only thing that could be better: the opening dialogue is super lame! And there's Seal helicopter part that is excessive. Other than that - gotta see this flick!
