Dreadful movie.

"We're bringing the war, to you. Make no mistake. This is the day, when your world changes forever."

Dumbest movie of the year. A sort of sequel to "Olympus Has Fallen" but this time the battlefield is moved to the UK. Especially to the metropolis of London. The same key figures were gathered again. Aaron Eckhart plays again the role of US President Benjamin Asher who managed to survive a terrorist attack by overzealous North Koreans in the previous film. And this with the help of the disgraced secret agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler). Morgan Freeman is back again to take over the President's tasks as Vice President as soon as Asher ends up in an awkward position. This time it's during the solemn funeral of the Prime Minister of England. The idea of Butler to hang ...

Killing Terrorism, One Bullet at a Time

London Has Fallen has created its own new genre I'm referring to as "terrorism porn" in much the same way that movies like the Saw and Hostel series are "torture porn". If you like lots of action, things blowing up, people getting shot, stabbed and exploded - well, London Has Fallen will certainly fulfill your desires and then some.

The film takes place three years after the events of Olympus Has Fallen where disgraced Secret Service agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butlter) saved President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) from certain death by taking down a White House full of bad men, with extreme prejudice. London Has Fallen opens soberly enough with a drone strike against a major arms dealer in what appears to be some kind of celebration - killing many innocent people i...

Angry Macho-ism

This unnecessary sequel to 'Olympus Has Fallen' doesn't try to do anything new. It's basically a much less entertaining retread of the first, with the exceptions being the change in geographical location and the addition of not being confined to one building. I thought 'Olympus' was average at best - a barely serviceable 'Die Hard'-formula action piece we've all seen before. Here, the silliness is dialed up on purpose and the result is a smug attitude towards it's brain-dead, patriotic, intentional camp that only served to avert my interest. There's nothing of noteworthy present amidst the entirely routine run-and-gun motif. Most of the action is presented with poor editing and even worse CG. The humor was also laden with this bad "macho American" stereotype, with a hint of racism an...

London Has Fallen... and so have a few careers

Olympus Has Fallen was a rather ugly fascist movie with crappy CGI, but it was an enjoyable and thrilling rather ugly fascist movie with crappy CGI. Having a bloodied Melissa Leo pledge allegiance to the flag was also a plus. London has Fallen, meanwhile, is basically just its predecessor without any of the suspense, one of the stupidest screenplays I've seen in years, a metric ton of jingoism, unbelievably crappy CGI, and an inexplicable gay joke that I just can't for the life of me figure out what the writer intended it to mean. And why the hell do they bring Robert Foster and Melissa Leo back to just sit in a blasted war room? And how the hell did Dr. Pavel from 'The Dark Knight Rises' manage to have his men infiltrate every single level of London's infrastructure to the absurd degree ...

London Has Fallen - Movie Review

London Has Fallen is a dumb action movie with no story or any development, and that's what I was expecting going in and that's what I got. I would be lying if I said I didn't enjoy myself watching this movie, because I did (for what it is). There were a few good actions scenes that was pretty well done and Gerard Butler makes for an enjoyable lead. I know this movie isn't suppose to be taken too seriously, because you would look like a right fool if you take any of this movie serious, but i can't pretend or act like i don't see the major flaws in this movie. I think the biggest thing that really hurt this movie is the noticeable CGI, which is absolutely awful and looks completely unfinished. Aaron Eckhart basically plays the male version of a damsel in distress and Jackie Earle Haley does...
