Movie Review: Olympus Has Fallen

By | March 22, 2013

mrohfThe movie was released in Kuwait on the 21st of March, a day before it was released in the USA and as soon as I saw the actors and the trailers I knew I was in for a good movie so I couldn’t wait to see it. I saw it Thursday night and I have to say I enjoyed it very very much.

Aaron Eckhart plays the president of the United States who one day finds himself a hostage in the White House and its up to the White House speaker Morgan Freeman to handle the terrorists demands and lead the country through the crisis while an ex-president guard, Gerard Butler, tries to save the day and rescue the president.

The movie is pure action with lots of bullets and is quite bloody. For some reason many scenes in Kuwait, dialogue scenes that explains the characters behavior and the story itself were cut off. I didn’t care for that at all. Overall, its very good and I can’t wait for it to be released on DVD so I can watch it again and add it to my DVD shelf. A must watch for sure.
