Imagine London is hosting a funeral event, where leaders from around the world are visiting the city to pay respect. Securities are tight and each leaders have their own group of securities. Police cars are nearly at every corner, traffic is worse than usual. Suddenly, there is an explosion and shooting at one location, than at the other location. All are happening at the same time. World leaders are being killed one by one. It’s challenging to distinguish who are the terrorist and where the shootings come from. The goal of the terrorist group is to kill all the world leader at all cost. That sums up the synopsis of London Has Fallen.
This movie was amazing. I was shocked when I checked the reviews for this movie. A 25% on Rotten Tomatoes and 5.9/10 on IMDb. Glad I ignored the reviews and watched the movie. London Has Fallen made Gerard Butler a fearless character who can take on anyone no problem. The movie portrayed scenarios that could happen in real life. Especially now when there are homicides caused by terrorist groups in different parts of Europe. Events like this could happen in any parts of the world which I like watching it on screen, but not experience it in real life. It has an awesome story that people who follow the current news may be familiar with such as the case with terrorist groups in the Middle East targeting people in the Western World.
The action sequences of London Has Fallen was simply amazing. All the explosions and Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) was able to take down an entire crew of armed terrorist by himself with some help of the president of the U.S. Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart). I thought it was funny when Banning was never shot despite all of the shooting he has to dodge. Meanwhile, he was reloading his weapon. Well, it was just a movie. There was so much going on in the movie that many people may not be able to understand the story. That’s what I like, a movie that makes me analyze in greater depth.
It was entertaining watching London Has Fallen. Watch the movie and ignore all of negative reviews. I highly recommended. London Has Fallen is available to purchase from Amazon here and Fandango here.
