Alex Simon

Scott Mendelson

Can a certain level or type of violence actually make a popcorn action film less enjoyable and/or null the would-be happy ending? Arguably there should be some kind of proverbial line in the sand when it comes to casual carnage in 'just for fun' action pictures.

Review: Olympus Has Fallen

Scott Mendelson | Posted 05.22.2013 | Entertainment
Scott Mendelson

Olympus Has Fallen offers a level of jingoistic fear-mongering the likes of which are more commonly associated with a 1980s Chuck Norris vehicle. It isn't terribly smart and it peaks in the first act, but damned if I didn't enjoy the picture nonetheless.
