It's thrilling and suspenseful to a point, but ultimately hard to swallow.
March 7, 2016
You can enjoy "London Has Fallen" as essentially a science fiction/action film.
March 7, 2016
An ugly sequel, in more ways than one, 'London' wholeheartedly embraces the American foreign policy consensus of 2002. (Splice Today)

London Has Fallen is smartly enough made by Iranian-born Swedish director Babak Najafi, with some exciting chases and fights.

Gaping plot holes and plausibility issues render the film ludicrous as does unintentionally (I assume) hilarious dialogue.
March 7, 2016
Sadistic violence, choppy editing and some leaden one-liners all conspire to make this feel like a Charles Bronson film from the 1980s and that's not a compliment.

Agent Banning is the latest in a long line of heroes whose every bullet kills someone while the bad guys constantly spray him with hundreds of bullets from machine guns, none of which seem to hit the target.

A satisfying combination of "24" and "Die Hard."
March 6, 2016
The cheap-as-chips visual effects are pitiful (all sub-Doctor Who CG explosions and video-game helicopter crashes), the action sequences coma-inducingly dull and overall tone laughable, but not in a good way.
March 6, 2016
I would never dream of arguing that this is any form of good cinema, but as the subject of a mindless, violent little B-Movie, Mike Banning has gotten the job done once again.

If there's not enough real-life terrorism out there for you, then you can count on "London Has Fallen" to fill the gap with enough violence to blow up world 10 times over.
March 5, 2016
The vaguely distasteful emphasis on death and carnage is still in place, now accompanied by a vaguely distasteful disregard for anything that isn't American.
March 5, 2016
London Has Fallen is simply the latest in the tradition of "Die Hard in a..." films. In this instance, it's Die Hard set in London. And that's it. The film doesn't have much else.

Butler doesn't even have his own catchphrase. He just poaches two of Schwarzenegger's, bellowing both "Get to the chopper!" and "I'll be back!"
March 5, 2016
The drama has all the nuance of machinegun fire and the plot has all the poetry of a tank.
March 5, 2016
The dialogue is cheesy, the acting creaky and the plot preposterous. London Has Fallen is everything I hoped it would be.

If you listen to NPR better steer clear of London Has Fallen.
March 4, 2016
Outrageous action mixed with over-the-top one liners makes for a wild fun ride across the pond.

It's like watching a bunch of kids make a movie with a big budget. Except the kids would be having more fun.

If mid-'80s Chuck Norris' beard emigrated from his face, went to film school, and directed a movie - LONDON HAS FALLEN would be that movie.
