This was an excellent movie. The action was great and there were even funny moments. The audience laughed, screamed, and cheered for the good guys. Well worth the price of admission. I may even see it again. Also, I counted four pieces of male eye candy. Yummy.

I could write a better movie....

I want my 2 hours back. I mean it. First of all...it looked promising, but this movie sucked. I kept waiting for Bruce Willis as John McLain to come in and save the day. The CHEEZY one liners made people in the theater grown and giggle. And...this movie makes the US government look WEAK..not willing to make hard choices to PROTECT MILLIONS of innocent people. Sorry....wait for DVD ..and then ONLY rent it if you are realllllly drunk.

Olympus Has Fallen

By stevendbeard
Written March 22, 2013
This is an action movie with emphases on the action [it could have been called 'Die Hard in the White House'] . It was filmed on location in Louisiana . Gerard plays the secret service agent protecting Aaron , the President of the United States . After an accident , Gerard is forced to retire and work at the treasury department [it's near the White House] . Rick plays a Korean that leads an elite enemy force that captures Aaron and the White House [Secret Service code name is Olympus] and makes the usual bad guy demands ['I'll kill the President , unless ...'] . It's up to Gerard to save the day [one man in the right place at the right time] . Morgan plays the Speaker of the House [he becomes acting President in Aaron's absence] and Angela is head of the Secret Service . I really liked it and would buy it on Blu-Ray .

Fk what the critics say, watch this movie. It's a great action movie with a good plot. A bit unbelievable, but what action movie isn't? 9/10 from me. I really like it.

White House vs Korean thugs

By mister2tim

Olympus has fallen. Reviewed 3-22-2013 This full action movie is definitely an R rated Korean how-to on how to lay siege to the White House. The action barely ever stops and the very graphic violence never ceases. Gerard Butler, the hero, is just another job-dedicated-protector who battles the bad guys without remorse. The plot has no real suspense only action. Various fictitious dangers are injected into the screen play for graphic/dramatic effects. Keri Russell, as the hero’s wife, surely does deserve a better part but her presence was real and effective. The physical abuse, multiple killings and strong language makes this an adult only film. The showing of the U.S. Military as inept against terrorists in movies seems to be a common Hollywood stunt that really has no value. Mr2Tim
