Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Where as ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ was a fun if silly action film, London Has Fallen ejects all that was pleasurable about the original and replaces it with poor cgi, a terrible over ernest script and Gerard Butler pissing away any last resemblance of talent he had left. A dirty, violent and nasty film with pretty dubious ethics at it’s heart. Yet there were was some quite enjoyable moments and for all the things it does bad, the moments it get’s right are well handled. And if nothing else you an laugh at Butler delivering some of the worst lines ever committed to an action film… it’s all pretty pointless but there are worse films out there.
