Olympus Has Fallen Review.

So this movie goes someplace that not many movies are willing to go, that is an attack on the White House. Now I get what the issue with that idea is, but you have to look at it as what it is and that is a really great action movie with a story that will leave you on the edge of your seat. People write and sell books about places like the White House getting attacked all the time, so what is wrong with a movie about it?

SPECIAL EFFECTS. This movie has to be up for Special Effects for the next Oscars. The lights, the fire, the explosions, they don't miss a detail. Some of the scenes will take your breath away.

This movie has one of the best casts ever. In most reviews, I talk about how select cast members work off each other well, this time I think the whole cast works perfect with each other and brings a whole new level of power to this film. Morgan Freeman is a living legend and makes every movie he is in epic. I am a fan of Gerard Butler but after watching this film, I am a huge fan of his action work. With the fighting and action there is still room for laughs and it is a wonderful part of it.

If you are looking for an action packed story with awesome effects and a great cast, then OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN is the film for you. One of the top movies of 2013 in my vote.

  1. If I was a critic I would have written this movie off. Saying that its just one of those movies with the same old plot with a bit modification. This is true, but as an audience I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. The best thing about this movie is its pace. You won't know how fast the 110 minutes go. There's not a minute you feel bored. The attack sequences are bit over the top, but if you are a drama lover, you won't be disappointed. The storyline isn't much to think about but the screenplay is apt. Gerard Butler does what he does best, fight bad guys. Aaron Eckhart as the stern faced president reminds you of Harvey Dent. Morgan Freeman probably is there to strengthen the star value in the film. But its the villain Rick Yune with his evil smile who impresses. This is an out and out entertainer, don't think too much, just be in the moment and watch this movie.
