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.

The movie was relevant utilizing the US's history of squatting in other people's countries under the guise of implementing Democracy, and it's cruelty to others with some of the possible repercussions of these acts. It was simply a really well put together experience as movies go!

A lot of recent action movies fail to set up an emotional background, which this movie does right off the bat. However, it's a shaky one at best. It's then followed by a far fetched and ridiculous, yet entertaining story line. I must say the crisis room acting was absolutely terrible! I'm kind of sad they pulled Morgan Freeman into this movie.

Olympus has fallen was one of those movies that before you see it you think well since there's nothing better out...why not. Then it blows your mind! This movie was amazing from start to finish. Butler played his usual bad ***self amazingly. This movie keeps you pulled in from start to finish wondering whats around the next corner. Morgan Freeman is also amazing as usual but hey, what would you expect for god! If you don't like blood and gore is the only reason I would stay away but if that doesn't bother you this is a MUST see!
