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

All that prevents this from being a four-star action blockbuster are some larded subplots and a superfluous degree of buzz-killing violence.

As bystanders get mown down, the Washington monument topples and the Stars and Stripes is shredded, the onslaught delivers a real taboo-busting frisson... the sequence would pack an even bigger punch if the CGI special effects weren't quite so cheesy.

Olympus Has Fallen may be pure Hollywood hokum but it remains tense, exciting and credible enough right through to the suspenseful climax, even if the dialogue is laughable at times.

It rattles along with no little vim, and there is one excellent joke about the difficulty of finding a computer's hash key when time is tight.

The thrills and the effects are cheap, but this is in hard-driving, good-humoured command of its own silliness.
