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.
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
Expect every action film cliche to be thrown in. Also, you might wonder what the heck Gerard Butler is doing with his career. But that said, it is clear that he knows his niche. Clearly, this one's for die hard Butler fans.
London Has Fallen felt like a pitch-perfect parody of the hysteria around terror or a truly terrifying piece of xenophobic propaganda. If you choose to laugh at the irony of it, you'll probably have a great time.
