The reason why I recommending "Olympius Has Fallen" is that to make up for the shortcomings from the last Die Hard movie. This movie reminds me of the first die Hard movie. Gerard Butler gave a good performance. His first good performance since"How to Train Your Dragon." He plays a disgrace secret service agent who must save the president from a rutless terrorist. A crediable villain the likes of which I haven't seen in weeks. Arron Eckhart is the president and Morgan Freeman is the acting president. Ashley Judd was in the movie, but she didn't last the first reel. But if Judd decides to run for the US Senate, you will hearing more from her. If she does, I'm going to root for her. Go Ashley!
Absolutely pathetic. The typical Good guy-Bad guy movie script that is so bad that you can predict the next line. Garbage is a good word that comes to mind.
Don't waste your time or money unless you're bored to death and even then it will put you to sleep.
I'd see this on the big screen because of the special effects. Some of the special effects shown I have never seen on the big screen before.
Also has a good plot and is contemporary. One doesn't really know for sure in the beginning to what's really going on until about a third of the way into the movie. It starts out slow for the set-up, but does take off once it gets going.
My only complaint is that the writing leaves the character's development a little thin.
This move was great. The only thing I have bad to say about it was, I didn't like how they portrayed the military. As if we were incompetent of stopping a attack on America. Other than that it was a great action film. Gerard Butler was great
Good popcorn action movie. Good special effects, but a bit hard to believe.
