Olympus Has Fallen (2013)
Not worth paying to see
This movie was filled with almost every cliché/trope that I can think of. The only ones it was missing were "I'm getting too old for this" and someone being 3 days away from retirement.
It follows the same formula as other movies in the genre and was predictable at every turn. I really had my hopes up for this one but they were immediately shattered.
The only reason I gave this as many stars as I did was because the action scenes kept my interest and there were a whole bunch of explosions.
Overall, I would not recommend this movie to anyone unless you need something to be playing in the background or you have a coupon or a free rental that needs to be used.
The Experiment (2010)
Not even close to the real experiment
This movie claims it was based on a real experiment. I would say that maybe the concept of it was, but that's about where the connection stops. The real experiment took place in the basement of a building, not an entire building. Nobody in the experiment died, there wasn't any violence that took place in the real experiment. It was ended WELL before anything that happened in the movie took place in real life. Forest Whitaker's character never existed in real life. Only a few of the guards developed sadistic tendencies.
There was a "riot" that took place in the original experiment, but that only occurred in one cell and never got violent. Paul Scheuring did no actual research regarding the experiment besides watching horror movies. Next time he decides to try and make a film based off of a real event, he should try to learn about the event before shooting a movie as bad as this.
