focuses much on action and forget the script, more if you like action movie, this may please you
Olympus Has Fallen is another film that focuses more on action than on the script , at least the action scenes are fun to watch , plus the script sins with many errors , the steering gets far more in the course of the film he loses control , the cast is interesting , is Gerard Butler who is making more action films , he's fine , have Aaron Eckhart which is good, and the excellent Morgan Freeman 's fine too , the special effects are competent , the action scenes are good , the plot is simple , the soundtrack is average , you do not notice it much , Olympus Has Fallen is no better action movie in done, more is far from bad, the action scenes are cool. Note 6.9
