OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN Movie Review

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013




This film really brings that statement to life. I honestly thought this was going to be just another cookie cutter, USA under siege action flick. That’s not necessarily bad, just average. Well, this movie blew me away, pun intended. It is a lot more than just an average action flick. It is intense and actually quite dramatic and patriotic. There are very few action movies that can almost draw a tear or two. This one does just that. On the flip side, it is also extremely violent and bloody; after all, it is rated R. I have a feeling Priscilla would be turned off by it as would many of you, but there are also those movie goers that are not phased by it, so on with the show. Overall and in summary, this movie kicks ass. It could be best described as Die Hard meets Air Force One and had a kid; or maybe Bruce Willis and Harrison Ford begat Gerard Butler. Well, that might be a bit much, but you get the idea. Speaking of Gerard Butler, as you would expect, he is the baddest ass in the picture. One of the more impressive features of the film is the big name cast. Besides Gerard we get some Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Dylan McDermott, Rick Yune, Angela Bassett, Melissa Leo, Radha Mitchell, Cole Hauser, and even a little bit of Ashley Judd just to name a few. Whew! That is a packed cast. Now in a movie like this its really not about the acting because it gets overshadowed by the action so overall the performances are as good as they need to be for this genre. But even so, Aaron and Dylan stood out a bit more than the rest as far as intensity. READ FULL OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN REVIEW >>
