London Has Fallen review: mega drams, and not much else.


An abstract view on what would happen if London was destroyed… London has fallen, but an epic bromance is blossoming between a White House Secret Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) and his boss the U.S. President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart),

The follow up to ‘Olympus Has Fallen’, sees the death of the British prime minister and the world’s most influential leaders gathering in London for his funeral. Security is at an all time high and there are detailed plans in place for the arrival of the U.S. president. But when London falls victim to an unsuspected attack, the city is left engulfed in chaos.

With many left for dead, the U.S. Vice President Trumbull (Morgan Freeman)  is left negotiating with the enemy. Freeman seems an obvious choice to be the peacemaker, but it works. As for Butler and Eckhart? They’re left to channel their James Bond, with witty one liners as they try to make it back home in one piece.

‘London Has Fallen’ is somewhere between wow and what just happened? What it lacks in story is made up for in CGI, with major explosions of London’s most famous landmarks. This action packed thriller has left us wondering what would actually happen if London fell?
