Excerpt: Best wel een goeie actiefilm, je blijft op het puntje van je stoel zitten. Een paar onverwachte wendingen maken het een meer dan gemiddelde film. Morgan Freeman vond ik weer goed acteren, daar kun je gewoon van op aan. Degene die Mike Banning speelt was ook sterk, maar de terroristenleider was eng realistisch. Al met al een 7,5.
Excerpt: What promises to be a great action/ thriller falls flat ........... Wooden acting and plenty of CGI to go around helps cement it's B movie status ........ I initially gave it a one but on repeat viewings (for friends) I raised it. Played loudly, the movie can be somewhat entertaining due to the stellar audio track.
Excerpt: This film will certainly get your patriotic juices flowing, and it's for that reason that Olympus Has Fallen is without a doubt one of the more satisfying films of 2013. Its plot is preposterous and borderline unbelievable, but thanks to a really great cast, you believe (almost) every bit of it.
Excerpt: Tell me this. How is it that a mediocre Gerard Butler vehicle is closer to a proper Die Hard sequel then the actual freaking Die Hard sequel? Honestly it would be more accurate to call this a Die Hard remake then a sequel. The plot is almost identical to the 80’s classic. I know that there is a Die Hard rip-off coming out almost every year (often two or three,) but they are rarely ever as blatant as this.
