One trailer, used in TV ads, included Emergency Alert System tones. They are used to alert TV viewers about real-life emergencies; using them outside of emergency broadcasts or tests violates federal law. In 2014, the FCC fined ESPN, Viacom, and NBC Universal $1.93 million for broadcasting Emergency Alert System tones in non-emergency broadcasts. See more »

Turn off your brain, relax and enjoy the action ride!!
We've asked for a real Die Hard movie, for a very long time.
We've asked for a real R rated action movie, for a while.
We've asked for a decent and crazy actioner for a long time.
There you have it. Olympus Has Fallen is the movie that has everything you were waiting to see. Thankfully, Bruce Willis is on vacation ( just like he claimed several times, in Die Hard 5). So, he is nowhere to be seen, thankfully. We have a good amount of violence, shootouts and action.
It's important and really honest if you like the movie for what it is, a fun, crazy and silly action movie with some good lines and some good acting. So, like it for what it is, but don't hate it for what it isn't. It's not meant to be a serious, edgy and visceral movie. It's Die Hard in White House, plain and simple.
You'll find the same old plot holes that similar movies had, but don't be scared. The flaws won't take away the fun you'll have with the flick.
The movie is not for kids or babies. It's very violent and they don't hold any punch regarding the display of violence and brutality on screen. Woman, men, that doesn't matter. Headshots, impalings, explosions and lots of deaths. That's about it.
Don't walk to the cinema, expecting to see a serious and complex thriller. This is a action movie that doesn't stop until its ending. You have 25 minutes of "building up" and after that, the action is pretty much nonstop.
Yeah, you'll see patriotism, but then again, a movie about the White Houlse wouldn't forget anything about it.
Finally: Go watch it for the action and some of the acting.
