London Has Fallen Movie Review

The sequel to the worldwide smash hit “Olympus Has Fallen,” a non-stop, suspenseful action thriller that delivers high-octane excitement through a heightened sense of authenticity. The visceral intensity springs from a timely premise: after the British Prime Minister passes away, his funeral becomes a target of a terrorist organization to destroy some of the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. The only hope of stopping it rests on the shoulders of the President of the United States (Aaron Eckhart) and his formidable Secret Service head (Gerard Butler), and an English MI-6 agent (Charlotte Riley) who rightly trusts no one. Morgan Freeman also stars as the Vice President of the United States.

Watched London Has Fallen on Tuesday evening with Carine at GV VivoCity.

Personally, I feel that this film is simple and compact on its own. The story flow turn out well but its introductory appear brief without a strong background. However, it got better with a good story build up that is commendable.

The plot may appear predictable but I enjoy the intense moments which keep me at the edge of my seat. Not to forget those action and thriller scenes that are nicely presented. A good action thriller film but not the best.

Honestly, I think the trailer appear more promising than the show itself.
