I have just come from seeing this movie and was very disappointed in the outcome. Now I'm a movie buff and look for the main story behind the story being told. I saw America as very weak and showing our military as weak and confused. In other countries this would not be allowed to be shown. There were children coming out of the movie saying that they would not every trust Koreans or Chinese. Is this want you wanted to show? Our country is being shown to others as easy to take over. Also the International World will believe what you shown at the White House and in Washington, DC is easy to over take.
What message are you trying to tell in this movie?
Understand what you have created can bring on hatered towards Asian People. This is not only a movie but a strong message of WHAT in your eyes? There are many people in this world who are mental sick. What do you think they will see in this movie.
The Actors were excellent, but the story line was very poor and prejudice. I'm an American.

It's been awhile since my husband and I went to a movie that actually kept us in a constant state of alert! My husband is pretty blah when it comes to movies but he could not sit still; neither could I! The movie was exciting from the start to the finish and I want to get the DVD when it comes out. I'd probably go watch it again at least 2 more times. It's that good. It's the kind of movie that makes you wonder...A MUST WATCH!!!!

This really is a great movie - interesting premise and it's always great to see Gerard, Aaron, Morgan, and Angela on the big screen. The only thing that could be better: the opening dialogue is super lame! And there's Seal helicopter part that is excessive. Other than that - gotta see this flick!

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.

OK, I will start by saying this movie is loaded with bad language and extreme violence, but that is to be expected, it is Rated R. All that said, the action is nonstop, with a few twists here and there (one of them being rather predictable). Gerard Butler is excellent, doing his american accent to perfection LOL, and playing the rough and tough guy very well. Aaron Eckhart is also terrific, as is Morgan Freeman and others. The casting is successful. I went into the movie thinking ok, I am looking forward to action, but also believing there is no real way this could ever happen. Though some of it is unrealistic, you still can see how it is possible that our white house is more vulnerable than we think. That makes the movie more enjoyable, but opens up a different can of worms ;)
