For her more physically demanding scenes, Melissa Leo did step-ups on an apple box in between takes to keep her heart rate up. She also wore a brown wig, because she needed to keep her hair long while shooting Treme (2010). See more »
At about 20 mins, as the South Korean vehicle convoy goes through the White House gate towards the portico drive, the time is 1900 hrs., but the shadows at the base of the trees is symmetrical, rather than extended towards the east side of the tree, as it would be at this time of day. See more »
The edited for TNT/TBS cable TV version aside from the usual language and violence edits most notably hackneys it's edit for the part where Mike (Gerard Butler) stabs Kang (Rick Yune) in the head. Instead, the viewer witnesses Mike about to stab and then it cuts straight to Kang's body ceasing to move making it unclear that Kang was stabbed let alone where. See more »
One of the crappiest movies i have seen in the past few years. Implemented lame story and even worse logic. I went in with really low expectations because Evil Dead was sold out and even with my low expectations...ended up my final thoughts on this movie was much lower than that. Do not see this stink hole of a movie.
I should have left 30 mins in, I regret not leaving, I never leave a movie ever but I wanted to this time. What makes it even worse, I went to see the new Evil Dead movie which was sold out and thought I would take a chance on Olympus Has Fallen.. You know what is even more painful? I bought an extra ticket by mistake. Man I hated it.
Olympus Has Fallen is correct, fallen into my top 10 list of worst movies I have ever seen. It was plain ridiculous. I am contemplating sticking a knitting needle deep in my ear to remove the part of my brain that is holding the memory of this movie.
