Olympus Has Fallen : Movie Review

"Olympus Has Fallen" is brutal, disturbing, and deeply unsettling, a film so incessantly violent and evocative of 9/11 imagery (while, mind you, pretending that 9/11 never happened) that it makes the recent R-rated Sylvester Stallone film, "Bullet to the Head," sound like a blatant misnomer. Directed with undaunted panache by Antoine Fuqua (2007's "Shooter") and written with deep-seated clichés on the brain by Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt, this action film—it's basically "Die Hard" in the White House—might have been more fun and less offensive had it been made in the 1980s or '90s. In 2013, however, it hits just a little too close to home to be brushed aside as mindless entertainment.
