It was a good action movie but if you want the real thing follow Mitch Rapp in Vince Flynn's 1999 book, Transfer of Power. For that matter after reading any Mitch Rapp novel you will say Mike Banner who?

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.

If you approach this movie as a "Die Hard" movie, you're going to love it. Great action, great characters, and great action. And really really good action. The professional critics reviews I read were all caught up in the politics of the movie, and I honestly don't understand why. Give the analytical portion of your brain the night off, and enjoy having this movie boost your testosterone level.

This is not for the kids, as it is violent within the first 5 minutes. I felt the action was good and the movie well planned out. The actors did a good job and you really think it is the white house...

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!
