For all the slicing and dicing of the editing, narrative momentum grinds to a trudge after the synthetic spectacle of the capital's undoing.

Bloodthirsty, derivative and xenophobic nonsense.

It's all so overly macho that it plays like a camp pleasure-cruise.

There is some surreal fun at the beginning as everything collapses... But then it's the same thing over again.

Make American movies great again. You can start by boycotting this one.

Represents a geopolitical obliteration fantasy flushed from the mind of the angriest and dumbest and most conspiracy-minded among us.

It is too easy to pick apart 'London Has Fallen', with its obvious political propaganda, cheesy one-liners and predictable climax but I will stop short of saying that the production was an all out disaster.

Having not seen Olympus Has Fallen, I had no pre-conceived notions of this sequel. I rarely opt to watch action movies and I just tagged along to this one. Storyline was basic, there were no "Well, I didn't see that coming" moments; quite predictable. It delivered on cringeworthy death scenes though, enough for me to gasp at least. 3 stars, I was...
