Gerard Butler gives the performance of a lifetime in this high action thriller, "Olympus Has Fallen." After terrorist operatives stage a planned attack for control of the White House, his character is forced out of early reitrement to do battle and save the president from an evil mastermind. Against overwhelming odds, he manages to breach hostile security forces and stage a one man coup. It's the classic shoot em' up action thriller that will leave audience members wanting more.

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!

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!!

Gerard Butler kicked butt in this film. Fight scenes were great, and I also like Morgan Freeman. He was no nonsense as the speaker of the house. The only problem I had was, what was the take over of the White House about? They never explained that, but I give this film 4 stars.
