      Die Hard in London. Great Action Flick

      The first movie was really good. I think this one is even better - which is typically hard to accomplish with sequels. I don't know why this movie kept me on the edge of my seat so successfully but I was 100% punching the air and glued to my screen. Great mix of action, suspense, touch of mystery and a s*** load of tactics if that interest you. This movie also is even heavier than the first on patriotism - really dealing with some philosophical conundrums while tickling the badass in every American. *** Side Note: I have no clue where all these bad reviews are coming from. Yes, it is the nature of this type of movie (where there is a single hero) to be bit far fetch - but in gorilla warfare the fewer the better actually. With everyone mentioning the lack of military presence... you obviously didn't pay close attention - everything in this movie happen in like 4 hours-ish. I think the special effects were pretty authentic.. MOST of what you see in blockbusters overly theatrical (explosions are packed twice to three times what they would actually be otherwise people say its bad effects). Seeing several presidential/prime minister convoys myself... I think they did a good job at creating the "worst possible scenario" and the thing is that you would need the "worst possible scenario" to take down a convoy and not have this film be about 30 minutes long before fail-safes kick in. A lot of the joking is a coping mechanism and more realistic than one might think. Finally, this movie actually has, in my opinion a duality: its both tickling the balls of American patriotism WHILE telling us we are not indestructible or innocent.I think they did a good job and its worth the watch for sure.

      If you liked Olympus Has Fallen, you'll definitely like London Has Fallen! Get ready for more non-stop slam-bang action in a real Star Bangled Banner action film, even if it is in London this time. Plenty of rockets red glare and bombs bursting in air. This time our president has to go to London to attend a funeral along with many of the world's leaders. after the unexpected death of the British Prime Minister. Things go badly wrong, but fortunately, the president has brought along his favorite Secret Service agent Gerald Butler. I doubt the president will ever leave the White House again without him after these last 2 films. But, Butler is there to save the day again, initially with help from the security detail and later from the British Special Air Services commandos and even the president steps up at one point. This time it's a Pakistani Muslim arms dealer and his three sons and friends with a serious axe to grind against the West. Once again, there is an insider traitor, lots of bad guys dressed up as good guys and very determined gun men coming at you from every direction. I'd say it's all a bit more plausible than the last time around, but that's not really the point of these things. It's just non-stop action. These guys need killing and they're dropping in large numbers as far as the eye can see. I can see another sequel just over the horizon, and I'll definitely go see that one too.

      Excellent sequal to "Olympus Has Fallen"

      Excellent continuation of the "Olympus Has Fallen" story arc. Agent Banning is the NEW Superhero Secret Agent! Agent Banning (Former U.S. Army Ranger) does what he does: saves the President and the world, without any super-human powers, using his skills, intellect and determination to win a battle against a force that is embedded,. Presidential Protection Detail Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) is in London with The President of the United States (Aaron Eckhart) for the State Funeral of the British Prime Minister when he discovers a plot to assassinate all the world leaders in attendance. With Morgan Freeman continuing his characterization of Vice President Trumbull (Speaker of the House Trumbull in "Olympus Has Fallen") is, as always, done in Mr. Freeman's style, to perfection. The continuity of the characters, not only from a casting standpoint, the characterizations as well, maintain the viability of the movie as a single story with two distinct, yet fully connected, story arcs against national leaders, specifically the United States and her allies, both about terrorism potentials. Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman and Aaron Eckhart make this movie fun to watch with not only amazing performances, the believably realness of their characters is superb. And they should be with these gentleman actors.

      London Has Fallen was a fantastic movie that kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. It provided a unique, compelling, and shocking portrayal of modern scenarios. It was an incredible movie, with a great mix of action, suspense, and politics. It was a roller coaster ride, and I really felt as if I were watching a real scenario play out. It was extremely well done, and a blast to watch. The sound of the movie was also incredible. DTS-X sound just made the experience even more realistic and intimate, and the sounds were crisp, clear, and shocking. The voices were easily understandable and the sound overall added to the general atmosphere of the movie. Whether you're a fan of sound, action, politics, or drama, this movie is a great fit. I would watch it again in a heartbeat.

      Give it a chance It's not that bad

      This movie is action from beginning to end and should not be considered as a spoof of a James Bond movie. I have watched all the James Bond movies and they were all great. However, this one and Olympus falling both can stand on their own. The story line of this movie is very good. When the British Prime Minister passed away under strange circumstances, most of the leaders of the Western world are invited to attend his funeral. However what begins as a sad event, turns into a deadly plot to kill the world's powerful leaders and unleash mayhem. The President of the United States, his most trusted secret service head and a British MI-6 agent are the only individuals that can stop this act of terror. Give it a chance, nowhere near the Bond films caliber but entertaining enough to enjoy.

      A sequel that improves on its predecessor

      I actually walked out of the theater liking "London Has Fallen" better than its predecessor "Olympus Has Fallen." Although it relies on CGI for a majority of the action scenes, I thought that the storyline was set up better than the last film. Heck, one of the secondary characters in this franchise even dies too, but don't worry. I won't spoil who it is! However, in my opinion, this did not affect the overall quality of the film at all. In summary, this is one of Gerard Butler's best films in a while. His character of Mike Banning fits him like a glove...and the "buddy" chemistry that he has with the President is always great too! If you like a good action film with a decent story, do yourself a favor and see this movie!

      Non-stop action sequel

      This is the sequel to "Olympus Has Fallen", though you don't need to have seen the first movie to see this one. It does help however as a number of the characters (and the actors that play them) are the same. If you liked the first movie you'll enjoy the second. If you didn't enjoy the first movie you definitely won't like the second. I know this movie isn't for some. The plot isn't deep and of course one man against a hundred isn't exactly believable. So this might not be your cup of tea. Yes movies that have a deep plot with lots twists and turns are really great but watching a non-stop action movie just to be entertained and escape reality for a 90 minutes is good too.

      What's with all the critical flack?

      It's been slammed for poor special effects and criticized for it's cultural stereotyping and improbable plot, but it's an action movie, people. Somebody's got to be the bad guy and, being made in The USA, of course America is going to save the day! It's a Hollywood action film, folks, and action packed it is. And for the record, the special blow up London effects looked pretty darn good to me in bluray on my 1080 55" Sony screen, but who knows, on the larger theater screen or that new and improved (what is it? 45K or something?) screen the CGI flaws every opinionated critic complains about may become more evident. Call me low-brow, but I had a great time with this one!
