Movie Review: London Has Fallen (NC16)
US presidential hopeful Donald Trump will love this movie.
The action sequel to 2013's Olympus Has Fallen sees America's head of state (Aaron Eckhart) and his loyal and efficient bodyguard Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) taking down Middle-Eastern terrorists after most of the world's leaders are assassinated.
So it is up to America to come to the rescue and stop the war on terror once and for all.
If you shelve all the pro-US propaganda, London Has Fallen is rather effective. The numerous adrenaline-pumping moments outweigh the times when you cannot help but roll your eyes.
Butler comes across as a genuine, no-nonsense protector, and there is also much synergy between the two men.
I will not be surprised if there is a third outing for them, perhaps in the vein of the Taken series.
