Awesome Action..90s Style

In the mood for an awesome action flick?! You must check out Olympus Has Fallen starring Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman.  My hubby and I do not get to go to the movies too often with a 14 month old so we are always nervous about making the right choice on what to see but we couldn't have been more pleased with last night's pick.  Pure action and suspense from beginning to end and it was something we both could enjoy equally.

It was funny because the night before as we were watching Deep Impact, we were saying that we missed 90s action flicks such as: Independence Day, Air Force One, Bad Boys, Dante's Peak, Con Air, Armageddon, to name a few. Well, as I was watching Olympus Has Fallen, I couldn't help but think this is what I have been waiting for, a true kick ass action movie that literally had me biting my nails off while watching. It was one of those movies that had the entire theater clapping as it ended. I was listening to everyone as we left the theater and heard comments like: "that rocked" and "so good."

So what is it about? Without giving too much away the White House is taken over by terrorists and the President, played by Aaron Eckhart, is one of the hostages along with other important members of the US government. Secret Service Agent, Mike Banning, played by Gerard Butler, makes his way into the White House to become the President's only hope of survival.  Some say it was just like Die Hard in the White House but I say who cares?! It was just that good!

This flick has been out for weeks now so you better go check it out before it's gone! And ladies this is one movie your husband will be sure to agree on seeing.


  1. Wow, we might have to watch that! I ADORE Gerard Butler. Definitely my favorite actor. :)

  3. I thought about seeing this a couple weeks ago but saw people commenting that the special effects weren't good. Maybe I should've gone anyway!
