Olympus Has Fallen Reviews

Lori Hoffman
Atlantic City Weekly

Assembled from other movies with the main template being Under Siege, plus the attitude from Die Hard and a blow-things-to-hell ambiance from any Michael Bay movie.

Red meat for the red state-minded -- and something of an embarassment for the rest of us.

big and dumb and more fun than a barrel of Bruce Willises.

Aisle Seat

A movie that drudges up the painful feelings associated with 9/11 just to make its routine, by-the-numbers action seem more relevant than it really is? Thanks, but no thanks.

Michael A. Smith

Director Fuqua, who guided Denzel Washington to an Oscar in "Training Day," has a great eye for action and stages the initial attack on the nation's capital with some breath-taking special effects.

Director Antoine Fuqua just winds it up and sets it loose.

Even a mindless popcorn movie needs to bear some plausibility and this one pulls too hard on my belief suspenders. All the explosions and bombastic violence in the world cannot hide a dumb flick and there we have Olympus Has Fallen.

If nothing else it means, for the moment at least, that our long national Gerard Butler rom-com nightmare is over.

Three Movie Buffs

You don't just need to suspend your sense of disbelief for it. You need to take it, wad it up into a tight little ball, and throw it as far away from you as possible.

...a blatant ripoff of the Bruce Willis Die Hard movies, the tension-enhancing score helps to make it an entertaining trip...

Q Network Film Desk

plays so much like the original Die Hard, with so many plot points lifted and transcribed into the new setting, that one could play a potentially lethal drinking game putting away shots every time you spot one

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

The cliché count is neck-and-neck with the body count in this hyperviolent and cheerfully destructive thriller.

'Rambo' in the White House! Gerard Butler is an action superstar of guts and glory. A gripping edge-of-your-seat thriller with first rate direction by Antoine Fuqua. A must-see for action fans.

Fails to deliver on the promise it shows in the beginning of the movie.

Creative Loafing

A better Die Hard movie than A Good Day to Die Hard, this still registers as a stale action flick whose primary worth is as a heartland alternative for moviegoers wary of the sexy sinfulness of Spring Breakers or the highfalutin' idiosyncrasies of Stoker.

Kam Williams

An eye-popping, patriotic, high-octane adventure that leaves no doubt about who's the vindicated hero that kept the world safe for democracy. The Butler did it! Gerard Butler, that is.

Think of this solidly tense and suspenseful action-thriller as 'Die Hard in the White House.'

Olympus Has Fallen wants to be "Die Hard in the White House" so much I half-expected Alexander Godunov to pop up at the end.

Killer Movie Reviews

This story is one of a terrorist attack on the seat of government, but the only real danger presented is killing the audience's will to live by force feeding it a thin script so laden with clichés that it becomes a choking hazard

Gerard Butler is a star and is finally back in his niche.
