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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
March 28, 2013
A big, boomy, flag-waving bash of lug-headed escapism.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
March 28, 2013
This ludicrous actioner strives to be as loud, violent, and patriotic as possible.

Fuqua doesn't deliver on what he has set up.
March 28, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
March 28, 2013
Red meat for the red state-minded -- and something of an embarassment for the rest of us.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
March 27, 2013
big and dumb and more fun than a barrel of Bruce Willises.
March 26, 2013
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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 26, 2013
Director Antoine Fuqua just winds it up and sets it loose.
March 25, 2013
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.

March 25, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

...a blatant ripoff of the Bruce Willis Die Hard movies, the tension-enhancing score helps to make it an entertaining trip...
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
March 24, 2013
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
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 24, 2013
The cliché count is neck-and-neck with the body count in this hyperviolent and cheerfully destructive thriller.
Full Review | Original Score: D
March 24, 2013
'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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
March 24, 2013
Fails to deliver on the promise it shows in the beginning of the movie.
Full Review | Original Score: C
March 23, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 23, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
