London Has Fallen English Movie ReviewFeature Film | Action, Crime, Thriller
Gerard Butler should stop making movies where he takes on what seems like an army of terrorists and kills them all, while dragging the President he has sworn to protect through seemingly most dangerous situations.
The president asks at one point, 'Why are we going to the embassy, the bad guys will be expecting us there.'
His only Savior replies, 'Precisely!'
Erm... If your job is to protect the President, shouldn't you be driving him to some place out of town? Like say, Birmingham? Or Cornwall?
Terrorists have unequivocal access to bombs and more bombs, so the Savior's decision is to fly in a helicopter. D-uh! Did you not see Black Hawk Down? You must know terrorists always have RPGs.
I feel bad for Aaron Eckhart who has to play the President and follow orders from someone who is trigger happy. Instead of evacuating the CIA safehouse with the President (the two agents reach Scotland Yard safely, why couldn't they have all gone together?), the Savior chooses to kill some more terrorists.
It's a brain-dead endeavor. And except for the car chase where many, many bike-borne terrorists are killed, not even enjoyable. I wish they did not waste our time by making such pointless bullet fests.
