The plot of this movie should have been the plot to die hard 5. This movie was like a 80's action movie, I mean the action is popcorn fun.

While the plot is not that original, "Olympus Has Fallen" is well directed, violent and intense, and features an outstanding "bad ass" performance from Gerard Butler, which rivals his excellent work in "300."

Is there supposed to be a message here? If Antoine Fuqua had a point to make, I'm not sure what it was, as the movie is essentially Gerard Butler shooting and stabbing everyone he can (after about 100 people or so have been taken out by a non-stop barrage of bullets, bombs and other assorted carnage). Action fans might be happy - but it's pretty dark for my tastes in action. I much prefer the more "popcorn" action of White House Down myself.

Only for action lovers

Well, the usual stuff, north-korean terrorists attack the White House and take the President (Aaron Eckhart), the vice-president and other important person hostage. Only a single Secret Service agent, Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) is still in there and tries to get the president -with some help of the army generals and Mr. Speaker (MORGAN FREEMAN)- out of there...

This is an over-the-top action movie, it really is. No thinking. No asking. No "Is that even possible?"
And I dislike them. In my opinion they are wasted time. All the time the same, shooting, fist-fighting, often using the f-word and ,especially in this movie, the patriotism of AMERICA! I, as non-american hat to see that.
The acting of this movie was good. Butler, Eckhart, Freeman that's a good cast. The script was O.K. ...

Olympus Has Fallen review

The film starts with a healthy relationship between Secret Service Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) and President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart). First Lady Margaret Asher (Ashley Judd) passes away from a freak accident. Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman), the Speaker of the House, will play a role once the White House is taken over by terrorists. Sounds like a great plot, however, unfortunately it is not worthy to be seen onscreen. As one of my fellow members mentioned, it just mimics Die Hard in certain aspects. This critic has observed it while watching the action-packed film. So many ludicrous and unrealistic moments filled with dark and oftentimes senseless violence. Fr a filmmaker such as Tarantino, most of his films needs it to tell the story or have good character build-up. For ...

Olympus Has Fallen

This film will certainly get your patriotic juices flowing, and it's for that reason that Olympus Has Fallen is without a doubt one of the more satisfying films of 2013. Its plot is preposterous and borderline unbelievable, but thanks to a really great cast, you believe (almost) every bit of it. Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Melissa Leo, Angela Bassett, Ashley Judd, Dylan McDermott, they all give convincing performances and really give the film a lot of credibility. Credit also must go to director Antoine Fuqua who directs the heck out of this movie; his aggressive approach really ups the stakes and makes OHF a hell of a thrill ride. I was surprised by the action/violence in this, it certainly earns its R rating... villains get what you think they deserve and I just had a ...
