A gung-ho flag waver that would give even the most ardent American neocon repetitive strain injury.

Fuqua lights the fuse on the summer blockbuster season with an almighty, ground-shaking bang.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

I was concerned by the stupidity of almost every character within the film. If this is how their real life counterparts would act, we're all doomed.

Once the film stops taking itself too seriously and gives in to over-the-top entertainment, it becomes a vastly superior movie - albeit one with some head-shakingly stupid moments.

The movie's best moments belong to Gerard Butler though, thriving in a role that's perfect for his capabilities as he establishes a hero we can't help but root for.

I'd rather have Butler getting shot at than treating women like silly hens in Playing For Keeps.

A grippingly brutal first act and strong cast can't stop this turning into a Steven Seagal film well before the end.

If this film were a pizza, it would be with double cheese plus all the trimmings you can pile on, and the base would be thick and heavy

If it's just bullets, bangs and wham-bam action you are after, this is the film for you. If you're looking for a credible tale with an emotional hit and something extra, you'll be disappointed

Olympus Has Fallen is just riotously entertaining, and although nothing particularly new or original, it manages to keep you captivated and takes the viewer on one hell of a ride.

On the actual Secret Service entrance exam, please tell me one of the first questions is: 'Should you run directly into the line of fire? Yes/No.'

An orgy of bloody explosions that'd be tough to endure if it weren't so inadvertently self-parodic.

After the dull last Die Hard, this all-American slice of hokum is the gung-ho blast action fans have been craving.

America is emasculated when terrorists knock the tip off the Washington Monument; lucky for us, he-man Gerard Butler is nearby, to inject testosterone into the body politic and some knives into the bad guys' necks.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

What justifies the continued existence of Gerard Butler on our screens?
Todd Jorgenson

Amid all of its hollow patriotism and gaps in logic, perhaps the biggest flaw with the film is its sheer predictability.
Robert Roten
Laramie Movie Scope
March 29, 2013
Impressive special effects and action scenes, including knocking off the top of the Washington Monument, blowing up one of the wings of the White House, but it can't overcome a dumb plot and lack of interesting characters.
Full Review | Original Score: C

If you go in with an extremely specific set of expectations about what you want from an R-rated thriller released in March, it is likely to leave you satisfied.

A big, boomy, flag-waving bash of lug-headed escapism.
