O que se diz lá fora sobre OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN, de Antoine Fuqua:
«A North Korean terrorist may be responsible for taking the president hostage, but it’s Bulgarian-made CGI that does the most damage in Antoine Fuqua’s intense, ugly, White-House-under-siege actioner OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN.»
Peter Debruge, Variety.
«It may be too much to ask for anything more, but, on the other hand, if you’re going to go to the trouble of pretending to blow up the White House, you might also want to pretend that something was at stake.»
A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
«Generates a fair amount of tension and produces the kind of nationalistic outrage that rock-ribbed Americans will feel in their guts.»
Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter.
«The countdown-to-Armageddon structure generates almost no tension, 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.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
«The movie is so apolitical; there could have been a nice slant to the movie, about how both sides of the aisle could get together to kick out these Korean terrorists. Instead, it remains totally void.»
