Technical Specs


Did You Know?

Gerard Butler was once in consideration to star as CIA operative Mitch Rapp in the now-aborted film adaptation of Vince Flynn's novel Consent to Kill. The first novel that Rapp appeared in was Transfer of Power, which has an extremely similar plot to Olympus Has Fallen - terrorists seize control of the White House, and Rapp must get to the President in his bunker before the terrorists do.

There are several shots in the movie where news TV channels display "Whitehouse" instead of "White House". See more »

User Review

When's the Sequel?

Rating: 9/10

Mike Banning(Gerard Butler) kicks butt and takes names in this film! It is like Die Hard in the White House. It actually would be Die Hard except there are better fighting scenes and a secret service agent taking on terrorists is a much more plausible story line than a New York cop going all Rambo. The plot is easy to understand, which is just what you want for a big action flick. That way there is no need to over think things - just sit back and watch some awesome explosions and sweet fights!

There are a few emotional situations that are a bit underdeveloped, but that is expected. After all, its a rated R action movie not a PG13 Nicholas Sparks one! The 2 hour run time was almost entirely focused on the action which is exactly what you want to pay for when you see a movie like this.

It's R rating comes almost solely from violence, there is little swearing and no sexuality.

You want my advice? See it! And do so in the big screen.
