The 10 Most Unapologetically Patriotic Scenes in Movie History

There is a scene in the domestic terrorism action flick Olympus Has Fallen, opening today, during which Melissa Leo’s character dramatically recites the Pledge of Allegiance while being dragged across the floor by her terrorist captors. A defiant moment, though perhaps too over-the-top to find at all moving.

By the end of each, you’ll want to shout “USA! USA! USA!” while waving those tiny flags you get at parades. Check them out and get your clappin’ hands ready.
