“..there's no reason to overthink this. Just leave your brain at the lobby and enjoy 2013's most entertaining thriller yet..”
by Randy Myers [San Jose Mercury News]
“..pretty ridiculously entertaining-or at least entertainingly ridiculous-for long stretches, dulled only by the realization that there are many parts of the country where this will play as less than total farce..”
by Scott Foundas [Village Voice]
Review rate : C

“..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..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]

“..action movie junkies ought to be satisfied, but even they may not like themselves so well in the morning..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
