Olympus Has Fallen

The Digital Fix
16 August 2013
  • Summary: Olympus Has Fallen is an entertaining actioner that�s elevated above its crummy visual effects and hackneyed story by the tremendous cast and the concise action choreography. The Blu-ray transfer lacks visual pizazz and the audio is solid enough, but the extra features are pure promotional ephemera and aren't worth your time. The film itself is worth a rental at least.

  • Excerpt: Terrorism has been around for ages and, most likely, will always be.  If there’s one thing that the September 11 attacks taught us it’s that if someone has a well-executed plan and is willing to die for their cause – there’s very little anyone or anything can do to prevent that from happening. Now it’s highly unlikely that an enemy (in the case of this movie, as in real-life, it was the North Koreans) can take over Washington D.C.

Olympus Has Fallen (2013)

  • Conclusion: Olympus Has Fallen doesn't find the same character depth or intensity, the real human feeling, or the raw gritty emotion as found in Antoine Fuqua's best work (and one of the best movies of the last twenty years), Training Day , but the underrated director does bring a powerful, mostly no-frills style to the movie that helps it move beyond the unmistakable sense of déjà vu that permeates nearly very scene.

Olympus Has Fallen

Slant Magazine
18 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Olympus Has Fallen spends its first act establishing a flimsy emotional groundwork before gleefully taking a sledgehammer to it just seconds into act two. Former secret service agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler), sequestered in a desk job with the Treasury Department six months after narrowly saving President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) at the expense of First Lady Margaret Asher (Ashley Judd), glances out of his window to see a full-scale White House siege in...

  • Excerpt: It's still probably too soon for the 20-minute attack scene in Olympus Has Fallen . A full 11 years after 9/11 it is horrifying to see people in business suits running away from fireballs, to watch a major American icon (this time the Washington Monument) crumble, to watch people in power agog at the kind of destruction that's possible on their home turf.

  • Summary: Olympus Has Fallen bliver stensikkert en af den slags film, der bliver spillet igen og igen på TV om nogle år. Det er nemlig en film, langt de fleste kan bruge som action-underholdning. Den er fed og en af de bedste actionfilm denne sommer.

  • Summary: Olympus Has Fallen is een snoeiharde actiefilm die zichtbaar (te)veel leunt op visuele effecten. Daarnaast kent de film veel onnodige slordigheden, wat eigenlijk niet de bedoeling kan zijn geweest. De DVD-uitgave is prima verzorgt en biedt een dikke 45 minuten aan extra’s die ons een goed kijkje achter de schermen geven.
