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.

This movie was so packed full of craziness! I truly believe the men in and around the White House and the President would never allow this to really happen! Although the story line was close to how really insane others may be no matter where they are from. Morgan Freeman is always, always great in every movie I have ever seen with him in it! I would vote him for President any day! Aaron Eckhart is an incredibly striking President! I'd vote for him just on his family values in the movie! Gerard Butler, the newest 'bad***' action hero in my book! He as a ex-Special Forces, American military man is phenomenal! Angela Basset, beautiful, and not one to be reckoned with, knows the person on the inside! Melissa Leo is a bad*** patriot and awesome!! I would see this again and will add to my DVD collection!!

Salt was released around the time Russian spies were caught, most notably Anna Chapman. The plot has many holes, but overall it was a decent performance put up by Angelina Jolie. Olympus on the other hand copies the same terrorist attack at the white house, where president was held hostage at the presidential bunker. Only difference is we currently have North Korea crisis, and the bad guys are the Koreans. The plot is somewhat better than Salt, but how many times do you want Hollywood to produce movies about attack on White House and hostage situation at the bunker? While I've seen worse movies this year, I have to give this below a so-so rating.

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!!
