Katherine the Great
I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

Just in case you think I’m a fan of every movie I see, here are my thoughts on Olympus has Fallen.

1. Gerard Butler and his voice coach (I assume he had one) did a nice job of hiding his Scottish accent.

2. Can someone explain to me why a guy that is picking up loaded guns off of bodies in every other scene is spending the rest of the movie getting in fist and knife fights? I waited in vain for “looks like you brought a knife to a gun fight”.

3. I think this movie is a hard sell because Americans may not be fans of such an epic fail of our security that the White House is taken over in half an hour…..or maybe that’s just me.

4. I do not think a woman who has fought hard enough to be Secretary of Defense would give up that easily. I don’t care that the president told her to. She wouldn’t let history remember her that way….but I guess very little in this movie was realistic.

5. And now for my mini rant that Ashley Judd (playing the first lady) was riding in a car in a snowstorm in a dress with thin straps and NO covering of any kind (I think she had a wrap on when she exited the building?).

This would have been a nice place for a pretty cabled cape or beautiful lace shawl. Something like either one of these would have been lovely:

6. Overall, this movie started off a bit like “Bambi” and then turned into a wannabe “Air Force One”. I didn’t love it.
