“Olympus Has Fallen”: Film Review by Perla Lucio c/o 15

“Olympus Has Fallen” is an amazing movie that left me speechless. No words could describe what I saw, or what I felt. Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) was the director of this movie and he really thought of everything. You can tell he really took his time in planning every scene of this film. He also chose the best actors and actresses to play the parts in this talent-filled movie; the likes of Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman star in “Olympus Has Fallen”.

This film is about the fall of the White House. When a terrorist attacks the White House, the group tries to take over the United States of America. This is one of the best movies I’ve seen about the government and it gave me a different prospective on what people would do for their country and how people can be so evil as far as killing innocent children and people. It has an unbelievable plot and an amazing ending.

It catches the aspect and explores the theme of when people are so scared they turn to something higher than them; to God. “May God be with us, may God protect these United States”, you will hear these words all throughout the film. 

These words gave the people at least a glimpse of hope that everything would turn out okay. I recommend you see this movie because I can assure you, you will like it. It is an action-packed film.

Remember it is in theaters Friday, March 22, 2013.
