Feels very much like a late 80's/early 90's action movie, complete with a capable badass and a familiar 'Die Hard'-esq plot. The action is competent. There are some individual exciting moments. It moves along super fast. The excessive use of really bad CG did hurt the experience. There may be little investment in the events, but the movie is entertaining in the way in which it doesn't overreach it's lower standards. Empty calorie cinema at it's best.

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."

A pure right-in-your-face hard-hitting actionmovie

Well, this was a pure right-in-your-face hard-hitting action-movie like a good action movie should be. If I want to watch an action movie then I expect … yes how could you guess it … a lot of ACTION! Not a complicated twisted story with plot twists in such a way that you hopelessly lose the thread, but perfectly depicted combats and gunfights with realistic victims (stacked in packages of 10). I can’t judge whether it’s actually realistic or not because I’ve never been in the middle of such a situation.

“Olympus has fallen” is simply a put-your-mind-to-zero and don’t-pay-close-attention-or-you’ll-see-the-mistakes movie! Nakatomi Plaza has been replaced by the White House, the Germans have been replaced by cruel North Koreans and McClane is Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) who doesn’t say Y...

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 ...
