Olympus Has Fallen Review

Okay, my wife told you last night that we had movie night and our movie of choice was of course, the newly released, "Olympus Has Fallen". I have to say that this was one of the best movies I have seen in quite some time. The action keeps you riveted and sitting on the edge of your seat throughout the whole movie. Gerard Butler plays a former disgraced Presidential Guard Agent as "Mike Banning". Banning was removed from the Presidential detail after the loss of life of the First Lady.

Morgan Freeman, who plays the Acting Commander- In-Chief does what we all expected, another outstanding performance in one of his many roles as an actor. The intensity that is felt from each actor within this film was as if you feel that you really are watching this being reported live. Freeman takes his wisdom and intellect and portrays it through his actor filling the movie with realism.

Since this movie has just been released on DVD, I know that some of you may have seen it at the theaters, so I don't want to ruin the movie for those that haven't seen it.

 In my opinion, this movie rates a 5/5 for excitement, action, and realism.
