“Olympus has Fallen”

FRIDAY NIGHT MOVIE REVIEW: Tonight, I got to see the action packed movie, “Olympus Has Fallen” which stars Gerard Butler (300, How to Train Your Dragon), Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight, Battle Los Angeles), Finley Jacobsen, Dylan McDermott (The Practice, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), Rick Yune (The Fast and the Furious, Die Another Day), and Morgan Freeman (Driving Miss Daisy, The Shawshank Redemption). When the White House goes under attacked and captured by a terrorist mastermind, it is up to former Presidential Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Butler) to stop these people from the inside since he is the only good guy alive in the building other than the hostages in the bunker that can stop him. He takes help from the pentagon with speaker Trumbull (Freeman) that gets information from Banning and gives information to him of what the terrorists are up to because if any of the army or swat teams try to intervene, the terrorists will kill the president. I thought it was very high in action and it was basically watching the White House get demolished with explosions and guns from the beginning of the movie to the end. The reason why this movie was rated R is because of the many f words that were put in there and the violence (because a lot of the kills were mostly head shots and cuts to the throat by knives). I thought the movie was alright. I especially loved the action which kept me to stay for the whole movie plus the plot was really good! FINAL SCORE: 82%= Juicy Popcorn
