WARNING: Violence and Strong Language

olympusTo be honest, I never got around to review this movie, but below is a summary from

In OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN, the President of the United States and the White House itself is taken hostage by North Korean terrorists, so it’s up to one former secret service agent to save the country from disaster. OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN is an exciting action packed thriller with strong Christian, biblical, patriotic values, but extreme caution is advised due to strong foul language and strong violence.

danielDove Review:
This movie is wonderful. It sticks very closely to the scriptures regarding Daniel and his relationship with King Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar, and Darius. With terrific special effects featured the viewer sees the three Hebrews, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, walk in the midst of the burning fiery furnace and suddenly a fourth figure walking with them, one that protects them from the flames. We see Belshazzar and his impending doom after he drinks from the goblets and vessels used in the service of the temple of the Hebrews. We see the envy of three rulers who attempt to trick the king into killing Daniel in the lion’s den. But to their amazement Daniel survives and it is they who must face severe judgment.
This movie literally brings the story of Daniel alive. The acting is excellent, the music is terrific, and the story is inspiring and remarkable. “The Book of Daniel” is a good tool to use in Christian Education or Sunday School Classes. This movie has earned five Doves from us.
