Olympus has Fallen versus Oblivion

Olympus Has Fallen http://olympusmovie.com/ is a very entertaining film. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The suspense is good and the attack on the White House is really well done and more than a little bit scary. Overall, the film is a little like Die Hard in some respects, but it's still very entertaining. The ending has some flaws but nothing too detracting. It has a lot of action which tallies well with the script. Bit worrying that North Korea are the bad guys, especially at such a fragile time. It is also worrying that it may give them some ideas. Interesting to note the Brits sacked the White House in 1812. Naughty people!

Oblivion http://www.oblivionmovie2013.com/ has some pretty poor reviews but i enjoyed it. It's quite slow at times but the story is interesting and enjoyable. Tom Cruise plays the part well, despite a lot of criticism from some reviews. It tries to have a shock revelation but it's not in the same league as 6th Sense. The sheer scale of the film definitely is mind numbing. The effects make up for a thin script. Having said that it is enjoyable, but probably mainly for Sci Fi fans.

Of the two I preferred Olympus Has Fallen.
