London Has Fallen (Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital HD)
Verified purchase
Very good action film. Pretty much a retread of the first film. A family of conscienceless arms dealers, to avenge themselves on the US because of a drone bombing (or something like that) on their family headquarters do an incredibly well-planned terrorist hit in London. They take out leaders of several important American allies and are on the hunt for the US Prez who is on the run with his premier bodyguard. A lot of people have panned this and the first film as being over the top and un-believable. Well, lets hope such incidents and situations will ALWAYS be unbelievable (and impossible). The point of this and any other fiction action-adventure film is to be entertainment and only that. So just enjoy and don't analyze too much. The Blu-Ray / DVD / Digital HD is excellent quality. Highly recommended.

Die Hard--greatly amplified
Verified purchase
The plot was essentially that of Die Hard, but with a hundred times more violence and immeasurably higher stakes. I still liked it. It was suspenseful, there were good people worth admiring, and nearly nonstop action--which is, of course, why most people watch action movies. The bad guys were of the Storm Trooper school: They inevitably couldn't hit the protagonist, played by Gerard Butler, even when he was standing right in front of them. He, on the other hand, rarely missed, even when running and firing behind himself without aiming. As happened in "Olympus Has Fallen," the first movie in the trilogy (this was the second), Butler's character practically saves the world singlehandedly. Typical of such movies. Unlike some reviewers, I don't fault a movie for this kind of nonsense. I mean, how many times has James Bond saved the world? And THIS hero is happily married, not a lecher.

Not much else to stay. Lots of action, and (spoiler alert!) the good guys win.

An entertaining move. It is standard Gerard Butler action ...
Verified purchase
An entertaining move. It is standard Gerard Butler action fare but that is exactly what I expected and wanted. I will say the action is nearly non-stop once it starts and the scale is larger and grander than in previous GB outings. No it won't win any story telling awards and the characters are the standard action tropes, again just what I expected and wanted. This movie earns a place with Die Hard and other sorts for those "I need action" nights.

One word of warning, lots of gratuitous use of expletives so be careful if you have children and are working to limit exposure. Even my Fiancee made comment on it, it was that pervasive.

Exciting Action!
Verified purchase
Gerard Butler is a secret agent who protects the president of the United States portrayed by Aaron Eckhart. Angela Bassett has a small but effective role as a top advisor. Morgan Freeman is the vice president. Butler is thinking of retiring as his wife is expecting their first child but with the death of the British Prime Minister and the president expected to attend he decides on one more job. A drone reigns death on the family of a top terrorist who vows revenge. Butler, Eckhart and Bassett fly to London for the funeral. At the funeral ceremony the terrorists kill many of the top officials who have attended the funeral. They reign destruction on the city and many innocent civilians are killed. Their main target is the president. Exciting scenes as the 3 try to escape from the rampage inflicted on the city. A car chase leads to an attempted escape via helicopter, terrorists use missiles to bring down the helicopter and the 2 escape to a safe house. unfortunately there is a mole in the British secret service. The president is captured and Butler with the aid of British forces attempt to rescue the president. The action scenes are excellent. Butler is very effective as agent Mike Banning. This is the second in the series Olympus has fallen. Top notch action and very recommended.

Action, action and more action. One question....did you like Olympus Has Fallen? if the answer is yes, you will love this sequel. Back again are Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman. This time around we go to a conference in London and all the major heads of state will be there and well someone is out to get them! Action, action and action. This is the type of movie that you just sit back and go with the flow. I injoyed it for what it was and what it never tried to be. Purely entertaining. tons of other familiar faces too.

three stars for the effects, plot and some acting
Verified purchase
This is a good movie if you are looking for an action movie with good effects and has a plot that fits a good action movie, however what bugs me is the way Gerard Butler's role is set. He does the impossible one guy defeats many, shoots out of a car with no door and hanging on the side while posing like he is a super hero, and has a catchphrase before killing someone but in a scene where everything moves so quickly. that type of role seems very unfit for how the movie plays out. The movie itself is a good action movie and has a lot of suspense while keeping your interest to the end and I'd rate it higher if it wasn't for how Gerard's role is set up. Maybe its just me who is sort of bugged by it but worth a watch if you are looking for a exciting action movie. The rest of the acting is well done the president is played as a person with a big heart and bothered by the events taking place yet still fighting properly for his life and does what it takes to protect himself and not let down America and other nations by him dying as well as other leaders.

Don't miss this movie!!!!!
Verified purchase
This is one my all time favorite movies. The characters were fleshed out a bit more from the first film (which I also liked) and you felt like you were getting to know the characters. I wish Melissa Leo had been given more to do, she did so well in the first movie. That being said. the action was first rate. The plot was so well planned out, the attack such a surprise in the way it happened, and this all occurred with a bird's eye view of London's best monuments. The movie was worth it just for the tour of London. Besides that the movie made me feel good to be an American. Gerald Butler really kept the pressure on to save the President and he knew what he was fighting for in a larger sense. That our allies from across the pond gave us their full support, was the cherry on top. This is one I watch over and over
