This movie was one of the best I've seen this year. I might have to see it again to understand the first part...not too sure about the accident. But overall a head scratcher, eye opener and the plot was well written. My husband kept saying it reminded him of a Die Hard movie. I don't know if that is right or wrong to say about this movie..all I know is I enjoyed it to the very end!!

I wanted to see this movie because I am a Morgan Freeman fan; but I must say the movie was actually pretty dog-gone good! It started a little slow and quickly picked up the pace - I really enjoyed Angela Bassett's role. This is one that will make it to my video library.

Applause worthy movie. Evokes passion for my country. Just a well done action movie with a good plot, good acting, and very good directing. Suspenseful, and Dramatic.

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!

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!!
