Olympus Has Fallen

Who else has seen this?
What are your thoughts both on the movie in itself and in regards to the North Korea situation?

I thought it was hilarious how during the battle at the White House's front lawn the Secret Service guys continued to come out of the door all nice and grouped together without cover only to be gunned down, I literally wanted to yell "stay back, you idiots!"

But overall I found it to be a solid action flick bad CGI aside.

I had a blast watching it. It was an average movie, but an awesome average

It was decent, but very unrealistic how they all got gunned down so easily.

lol yeah no kidding. It seemed silly to see an entire army of secret service agents coming in droves, let alone seeing them all get gunned down

It was also funny when the lady was being dragged down the hall and she was reciting the pledge of alligience.

But yeah the actual invasion part was almost cringe worthy at how dumb the SS was, hopefully they'd be smarter than that in a real life event.

For real though, what was up with the CGI? The Aircraft battle looked more like something that would be in Olympus Has Fallen: The Video Game.

I found it was alright.
I've noticed that quite a few of action movies seem to be focused on some form of attack on America, or infiltration. It's strange how Konata said it was in production for a while, yet focuses on North Korea.
Movies see to conform to how people are feeling though, this movie reflects that. Lack of trust and conspiracies.

Also thought it was unrealistic how they got gunned down so easily, the whole operation seemed to just go far too smoothly before the protagonist[?] got into the White House.
