Olympus Has Fallen (2013)

[could have been a great Die Hard movie]

Olympus Has Fallen (2013)
IMDB- 6.9
RottenTomatoes- 47%
RJG Ratings- 70

The White House is taken hostage by terrorists.

Starring- Gerard Butler,Aaron Eckhart,Morgan Freeman
Director- Antoine Fuqua

The cast is good.Gerard Butler gives in a good performance and supported by Aaron ,they both give the movie a charged atmosphere.Morgan Freeman is great too.

The story for Olympus HF ,is not one to be closely examined.Its an action movie with not much priority for story.The story they do use is pretty decent but very over the top.Its hard to believe majority of the stuff that happens in the movie.Not to mention it has a cliched president character.Much of the dialogue are way too cheesy.

Direction by Antoine is good.He has maintained a good pace for Olympus and 2hrs easily slip by without the movie getting dull at anytime.With a good cast and some nice action scenes ,hes able to cover up for the lacking story.

Watching Olympus HF ,reminded me of the good ol Die Hard Part1.This had all the ingredients of such a movie and is a 100 times better than the recent Die Hard movies.

Overall ,Olympus HF is a good timepass action movie.It isnt anything great but will please those who love movies like Die Hard.
