As pure action-packed spectacle, Olympus Has Fallen's big open has few recent peers.

[The movie] takes delight in its own unoriginality, dancing on the grave of every loud, dumb, preposterous action film of the past twenty years. Without earning any of it.

A lot of footage of Gerard Butler skulking around dark hallways and neutralizing terrorists.

To those who enjoy the Action Movie Fantasy, Olympus Has Fallen is one of the best examples in years.
January 3, 2014
Olympus Has Fallen is made from action-movie mix. Just add sweat.
November 25, 2013
Let's be upfront. Olympus Has Fallen is dumb, violent, overlong, jingoistic, racist, predictable, derivative, and whatever other adjectives those with no sense of B-grade fun wish to throw at it.

While never scaling John McClane-level excitement, Fuqua's film is good popcorn fun
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 26, 2013
A vile propagandistic action flick that shamelessly indulges fears of terrorism while also failing on a basic narrative level.
August 13, 2013
Olympus Has Fallen has excellent action sequences, and Fuqua does a terrific job making Washington, D.C., look like a battleground. For indulgent viewers, this will be enough.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 12, 2013
Olympus Has Fallen is a serious take on a silly premise that strains believability and ultimately can't help being just another forgettable action flick.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
July 13, 2013
All that prevents this from being a four-star action blockbuster are some larded subplots and a superfluous degree of buzz-killing violence.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
July 12, 2013
It's a seemingly foolproof premise that is, to a slight yet palpable degree, squandered by Fuqua...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
May 13, 2013
Butler's presence makes perfect sense. He's an empty, mindless vessel. Just like his movie.
Full Review | Original Score: F
May 6, 2013
A fiery pile of turdy dialogue, turgid action, and xenophobic boosterism for the frequently 'God bless!'-ed US of A. This movie's so stupid, the only suspense it offers is if your brain can avoid falling into a coma before the screen finally goes to black
May 4, 2013
Provided you can handle such deliberate over-kill in the chaotic swirl that goes on here, Olympus Has Fallen offers a super-sized serving of grit-tinged fantasy action guaranteed to satisfy those who don't mind splatter over style.

May 2, 2013
In reinventing an old tale in a smart and engaging way, it's a thoroughly entertaining and often riveting way to spend two hours.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
April 26, 2013
With guns blazing and spouting one-liners, Gerard Butler revels in being the tough guy and leads a decent cast, with all-American Aaron Eckhart a worthy addition to the hallowed list of movie presidents.

Olympus Has Fallen is the stupid, dark fantasy of backward white trash America that needs another domestic threat to trigger war.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 25, 2013
Gruesome, cliché-ridden terrorist attack on the White House actioner has a lot of energy to go along with its relentless and well-choreographed carnage.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
April 22, 2013
t's a terrible action film but a brilliant piece of North Korean propaganda. The American characters act so stupidly that you're pretty much rooting for Kim Jong-un. THAT'S HOW BAD IT IS.
