I have just come from seeing this movie and was very disappointed in the outcome. Now I'm a movie buff and look for the main story behind the story being told. I saw America as very weak and showing our military as weak and confused. In other countries this would not be allowed to be shown. There were children coming out of the movie saying that they would not every trust Koreans or Chinese. Is this want you wanted to show? Our country is being shown to others as easy to take over. Also the International World will believe what you shown at the White House and in Washington, DC is easy to over take.
What message are you trying to tell in this movie?
Understand what you have created can bring on hatered towards Asian People. This is not only a movie but a strong message of WHAT in your eyes? There are many people in this world who are mental sick. What do you think they will see in this movie.
The Actors were excellent, but the story line was very poor and prejudice. I'm an American.

It was a good, quick passed action movie, even though it was burdened with a horrible script. It was written so poorly, that it made actors who are otherwise very exceptional look very stilted in their performances. I see no need to ever see this movie again.

Olympus Has Fallen does not disappoint when it comes to non-stop, crazy action. There are a billion bullets flying in this movie and plenty of stuff blowing up. This is a pure summer action movie. There is no love story or huge character development. This is just an all out war. Gerard Butler is the typical, unstoppable, calm-cool-and-collected tough guy, and does a good job of portraying that character. The lead bad guy was great also. Overall, the story was pretty good, even if it was somewhat predictable. Just don't go in expecting a lot of realism. This is an over-the-top wild ride and all out shoot-em-up fun.
In conclusion, Olympus Has Fallen is a great summer action movie. It is fun enough to watch again, so I will probably be buying it. It is a pretty typical summer action flick, so you probably won't be disappointed if that is your thing. Go see it in the theater if you can. Highly Recommended for some good summer movie fun!

Good action, plot, and characters. Battle in front of white house = disappointed, except for close up action. Who stands up on open ground in a fire fight? After those scenes the story kept me in my seat.
