Super good although...

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!

It's been awhile since my husband and I went to a movie that actually kept us in a constant state of alert! My husband is pretty blah when it comes to movies but he could not sit still; neither could I! The movie was exciting from the start to the finish and I want to get the DVD when it comes out. I'd probably go watch it again at least 2 more times. It's that good. It's the kind of movie that makes you wonder...A MUST WATCH!!!!

Fun-- but with reservation

Great special effects, fine acting by an A-list cast, a good edge of your seat popcorn munching thriller, very much in a good versus bad old-school way. However, it is also formulaic and very predictable, right down to the final mano a mano duking out between the pro- and antagonist. The only thing missing is one of them growling "we both knew it would come to this!" just before throwing the first punch. I'd say it's worth a matinee look, but if you're paying full evening price, there are better choices for your $.

Not as bad as most critics said but not as good as it might have been. A good (if pretty violent) two hours of action entertainment.

Olympus Has Fallen

Best movie we've seen in years!!! Gerard Butler did a stunning performance... and the movie was edge of the seat great all the way through!! I would highly recommend it to any adult!! Lots of killing scenes, but not the ugly grizzly stuff of some horror pics... pretty much what our military does for a living! GREAT MUST SEE!!! Not recommended for kids... I would say 15 and older, especially if they are interested in current affairs in the world today! ONE MORE POSITIVE: Hollywood DID NOT use this movie to promote it's POLITICAL FLAVOR!! So everyone can enjoy this movie!!
