Olympus Has Fallen

So Katrina and I were in the neighbourhood of a theatre with time to kill and stopped to see if there was anything worth watching. There wasn't (2013 has not started well at all), but Katrina, who enjoys her action flicks, was willing to watch Olympus Has Fallen, so we did.

Let's start with the film's redeeming qualities:

Uh, well, hmmm, uh, nope, it has none.

There are some good actors trying their best, but that's nowhere near good enough. Olympus Has Fallen, the story of a terrorist takeover of the White House, is very violent, poorly written, ridiculously nationalistic and, of course, predictable. Unless you are in need of an action fix, you'll want to give this a miss. ** My mug is down.
