OLYM­PUS HAS FALLEN

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Start wav­ing the Amer­i­can flag. This is an­other pa­tri­otic ac­tion flick that fol­lows a well-worn for­mula. A dis­graced for­mer pres­i­den­tial guard (Ger­ard But­ler) is the only man left stand­ing when ter­ror­ists take con­trol of the White House. The fu­ture of democ­racy lies in his hands as the slick bad­dies wipe out any op­po­si­tion, de­stroy­ing most of the iconic build­ing in the process. The CGI is so sleek that it is easy to fall into cheer squad mode and there are enough helicopters and ex­plo­sions to sat­isfy ac­tion fans. ★★★ Ex­tras: Un­der Sur­veil­lance: The Mak­ing Of Olym­pus Has Fallen, bloop­ers (only on Ul­tra­vi­o­let DVD). ★★★
