Movie Review: Olympus Has Fallen
Olympus Has Fallen could be one of the best action thriller of the year, or the new 'Die Hard' movie for 2013 (better than the awful, despicable A Good Day to Die Hard released earlier). The strengths of the film were the well-executed, fast-paced exhilarating action scenes,and surprisingly the character development and plot as well.
The plot for the White House (Secret Service Code: "Olympus") take-over is well made and carefully shown throughout the 1st half of the film.The film is remarkably violent; there's a high body count and you can see blood splattering everywhere.The film gives the characters enough depth for the audience to care about them. The antagonists of the film are clearly bad and should be taken seriously. Although the siege is quite implausible and requires suspension of disbelief (the sudden attack is too well-organized), but it is still a movie worth watching, it is what Die Hard 5 should have been.
