Olympus Has Fallen

Olympus may have fallen in Antoine Fuqua’s Olympus Has Fallen, but the body count rises.Pretty straightforward story going on here without much in the way of surprise; however, while the first 30 minutes proves to be some average buildup, the following 80 minutes harness some solid entertainment value.When compared to other elements of this picture, the usage of CG is a letdown. The aerial sequences involving helicopters and planes, while destructive in nature, are underwhelming. Fortunately, the rest of the bloody violence and shootings make up for this weakness.Gerard Butler isn’t someone we haven’t seen before, but watching him go to work here is the highlight of the film. Morgan Freeman is second on the stepladder and everyone else tends to fall back into the rubble.In the action department Olympus Has Fallen delivers. That’s all there is to it.
