Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —
Luckily I’m secure enough in my sexuality to admit that even guys might have develop a crush on the hero, who carries the role so well that it would be unfair to not try and use this character again somehow in the future. Morgan Freeman as the Speaker of the House/Temporary Stunt President also adds a cool element to the suspense, but I’m sure the same could be said if he just spent his screen time narrating the phone book.
Guys will definitely enjoy the ride, though there’s enough there for the ladies as well and about the only crowd I wouldn’t recommend it to would be little kids or those who may have just experienced something traumatic. Every bit a popcorn epic, it’s important to just embrace the ridiculous and set your expectations nowhere near the territory of artsy. When all the awesome is over, I’d say the verdict for “Olympus has Fallen” is a head stabbing three and three fourths out of five victories.
