Olympus Has Fallen
The unthinkable happens when heavily armed and highly trained terrorists launch a bold daytime attack on the White House. The building is overrun, and President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) and his staff are taken hostage. Luckily for Asher, former presidential security officer Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) is on the scene. With time running out, it's up to Banning to locate Asher's son before the extremists do and rescue the president before his captors unleash their ultimate plan.

Again just another action movie were the hero saves the world (or the president in this matter) I only recommend this again just like some others for the action scenes and would recommend renting it but glad I did not waste the $7 to see it in theatresSeptember 9th, 2013 · Details
This movie should have been called "Opposite Day". Every character makes the opposite decision of what they logically should make. It makes it very difficult to find anything that happens believable or relatable. It was almost hilariously bad. Good action, and good fight sequences. Very violent. It's fun to see Gerard Butler being a badass again, 300-style, but the plot is so ridiculous that I can't really say this is worth seeing.April 2nd, 2013 · Details

There is plenty of drama, violence, and action to keep the heart beating fast. But the story itself is so far fetched that it's hard to get involved without an occasional eye-roll. Obviously, this movie was never intended to appeal to the family audience, and for that it succeeds. So it comes as no surprise that Dove is unable to reward this R-rated blood-fest its Family Approved Seal... See Full ReviewClick here to read full review

The graphic but ingeniously staged action sequences amount to most of his fast moving movie and allow you to suspend disbelief as the preposterous plot unfolds...

While "Olympus Has Fallen" breaks no major new ground in the political thriller genre, Fuqua has directed a sharp, very taut adventure that keeps you engrossed from start to finish. It delivers some excellent visuals and a few surprising twists that add beautifully to the suspense... See Full ReviewClick here to read full review
