| Quite entertaining actually...
While "Olympus Has Fallen" is an entertaining and thrilling movie, it does however run on stereotypic fuel; one man who save the day and saves all of America.

The story is compelling and fast paced, right from the very beginning. And it keeps its high tempo right up to the end. Sure there were some very predictable moments and situations that even a blind man saw coming a mile away. But despite that, director Antoine Fuqua managed to put together a wholesome entertaining movie.

The action sequences are good and well executed, coming off as believable, despite it being one man against 28. And the way that these sequences were filmed just puts you right there in the action.

As for the acting, well, with a cast as this, you know that you are getting your moneys worth. Gerard Butler really carried the movie quite well. The movie also brandished talents such as Aaron Eckhart, Dylan McDermott, Angela Bassett and Morgan Freeman.

If you enjoy action movies then you should sit down and watch "Olympus Has Fallen", if you haven't already seen it, because it is quite entertaining.
