Olympus Has Fallen

Not sure if this looks really cool or really insane (in a bad way...). Lots of good people involved.

OHF, playing it straight, seemed to me like it wasn't as self-aware of its own action-movie-ness, if that makes any sense.

That said, I can understand the opposite viewpoint here, so I'm not going to argue this, pretty much at all.

I guess. I went to see it in the theater to get drunk and watch some shit blow up. Olympus did that for me, unbelievable a premise as it was. I decided to torrent WHD, and I'm glad I did, because I nearly turned it off 4 times while watching it, but was too bored to do so. Too much little girl, too much weird dialogue -- it just took away screen time from eye candy and explosions, lol.

Just watched this on blue-ray. OK for a popcorn flick, lots of head shots and stabbings... felt like I was watching a Call of Doody movie. The CGI was laughable, at best.

I can't argue with that. At least the writers of Olympus

This looked like a B movie with a little more budget.

just saw it ... should of just called it 'Die Hard reboot' or better yet 'Die Hard ripoff'


I fully expect Reginald VelJohnson to step out on screen and eat a twinkie at some point.

Decent flick. Watched it on Netflix last night. Better than I was thinking it would be. Well done for a relatively low budget affair.


I'll have to check out White House Down to compare.

I thought it was pretty good based on the action alone. The Washington Monument scene was a little ridiculous though, pretty sure you can't zig zag through thousands of heavy ass bricks falling everywhere.

The Macguffin in that movie is one of the most poorly researched, illogical plot devices ever. Still fun to watch Butler do Butler things, but there were dozens of moments.

Horrible movie.

Would have been better if they made it more believable.

What I saw was a damn clown show starring Gerard Butler.

The White House invasion scene was cool. I'm not saying it was realistic or feasible but it was entertaining.

I never watched 24, but in this case, two Koreans operating an AC-130 are able to use side mounted 20 mm Gatling Guns with marksman-like accuracy from 800 feet in the air. Also, dropping flares will defeat AMRAAM missiles, and private security contractors are allowed into the WH bunker.
