London Has Fallen Reviews
December 5, 2020
What has changed, spectacularly for the better, is the amount and caliber of the humor.
July 3, 2020
This is big, dumb, jingoistic, stripped-down DTV-style action with a studio budget, fronted by a grim, trash-talking hero with homicidal tendencies that would be psychotic in any other realm. If that's your jam, this movie is for you.

While London Has Fallen does touch each of the bases for an action movie home run, it's definitely more of a solo shot than a grand slam.

Gerard Butler does what he does best - be a gritty, intense, no-nonsense hero.

This may be Gerard Butler's best action film yet.

If the film has, at best, a sub-par screenplay, its storytelling woes are meaningless compared to the abysmal butchery it makes of its action scenes.

London Has Fallen suggests the sort of film Leni Riefenstahl might have made had she bade Hitler "Auf Wiederhesen" and trotted off to enjoy a lucrative Hollywood contract under David O. Selznick.

the underlying nastiness here (aimed mostly at Arabs) makes it feel like cheap propaganda; a comparison not helped by shockingly shoddy special effects.

It's not that London Has Fallen is hugely different from the original, just that its worst elements have been amplified.
February 14, 2019
The film is nothing more than a series of sub-par kinetic sequences, tied together by a plot that is as thin as it is preposterous.

London Has Fallen is far better than the original film and Babak Najafi has done an excellent job with the direction. [Full Review in Spanish]

Butler's secret service agent character Mike Bannon is a raging, murderous psychopath who takes every possible opportunity to shoot villains in the head and eyes. Specifically those places.

The jokes are dire, the politics dodgy, the hero a man from whom every president should run like the wind. But the main action sequence is well done in its scale and relentlessness and there's a terrific product placement for free British tap water.

I may not have liked Olympus Has Fallen very much, but it felt like All The President's Men compared to this sequel.
November 3, 2018
Not only an inferior sequel to Antoine Fuqua's devastating city symphony of mayhem, Olympus Has Fallen, but it's a contemptible, ugly and morally corrupt poser of an action film.

London Has Fallen is the Invasion USA of the 00's. Make of that what you will.
August 27, 2018
That some people will truly enjoy this movie is as damning a cultural signifier as anything.
August 23, 2018
Through it all, Butler ducks and dives, runs and rolls, and blows things to smithereens.
December 4, 2017
The point I'm trying to make is that you can label London Has Fallen horrendously written, racist, insensitive, loud, pointless, and objectively terrible as a film, but there is no denying that it is stupidly entertaining
