Not for me, thanks

Olympus Has Fallen is, according to its star-cum-producer, a revenge flick.
It's not just a movie about efficiently taking out terrorist bad guys. It's a movie about making them pay. The feeling hje wanted to evoke was that the movie's villains "need to be eradicated - but also hurt as well. It's that feeling - that we wanted to make these guys suffer."
Okay. I think I can do very well without watching a movie that celebrates hurting people and making them suffer. Some things, even if necessary, shouldn't be celebrated. Some things shouldn't make us cheer.
