Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A typical slab of Hollywood action in which the White House crumbles under attack, the American flag is tattered and tossed aside by baddies, and cliches rise like gods. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Mar 22, 2013

Rotten: Fuqua doesn't deliver on what he has set up. – David Denby, New Yorker, Mar 28, 2013

Fresh: 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. – Richard Haridy, Quickflix, Nov 25, 2013

Fresh: Provided you can handle such deliberate over-kill in the chaotic swirl that goes on here, Olympus Has Fallen offers a super-sized serving of grit-tinged fantasy action guaranteed to satisfy those who don't mind splatter over style. – Jim Schembri, 3AW, May 4, 2013

Nonstop Silly Action

It was as if a country music singer wrote a movie.

Mostly Just Mindless

Yes, mindless action, but I just couldn't get past the horrible gaffs, logic gaps, and lack of reality for a movie that was supposed to be "set in reality". They paid for big name actors and got them, but those big names were forced to try and act and deliver lines through a horrible mess of a movie.


I have been unable to download this movie for the past two days and it keeps asking me to retry! I don't want ,,,',pppppppp
