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!

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.

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.

One of the best thrill-seeking, action pack, sit on the edge of your seat movies since Air Force One. It was a well spent $10.00. This is one I can watch repeatedly on cable or DVD.
