    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    Olympus Has Fallen is no fun at all. To the contrary, it soon grows tedious, odious and oppressive.

    This is for those who like their political thrillers far-fetched, far-reaching and filled with pretty people.

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    The countdown-to-Armageddon structure generates almost no tension, but Olympus Has Fallen does have lots of squalidly bloody hand-to-hand action, all of which is so pulpy and standardthat the film actually makes you grateful for the presence of Gerard Butler, gnashing his teeth in the Bruce Willis role.

    Generates a fair amount of tension and produces the kind of nationalistic outrage that rock-ribbed Americans will feel in their guts.

    While Olympus Has Fallen breaks no major new ground in the political thriller genre, Fuqua has directed a sharp, very taut adventure that keeps you engrossed from start to finish.
