London Has Fallen 
Angry Macho-ism
1/4 stars

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 and bigotry. One-liners spouted by our lead are full of that mentality, as he makes dumb off-putting remarks throughout. Couple that with his brutal lack of remorse agenda towards all the bad guys, and you have an angry un-likable hero. These negatives really sucked out any enjoyment that could be had with this typical action movie nonsense. It's dumb, loud, and mean. Not a combination for fun.
