“Admission” and “Olympus Has Fallen” Movie Review

Uploaded on Friday 22 March 2013


Two big films opening this weekend, we have the dramedy “Admission” and “Olympus Has Fallen.” In “Admission” from director Paul Weitz and based on the novel by Jean Hanff Korelitz, Tina Fey stars as a Princeton admissions officer who’s at a crossroads – admit a student who may or may not be her son, and fall in love with John Pressman (Paul Rudd). Lily Tomlin co-stars as Fey’s feminist mother.

In “Olympus Has Fallen,” Gerard Butler is back in action mode as Mike Banning, a disgraced Presidential guard who finds himself back inside the White House in order to protect our President, country, and perhaps the world! This film boasts a superlative cast featuring Morgan Freeman, Melissa Leo, Aaron Eckhart, Dylan McDermott, Rick Yune, and Angela Bassett. Antoine Fuqua (“Training Day”) directs the film for Film District.
