Predictable and rediculous plot, appauling acting and one of the very worst films I have seen. If you do decide to watch this do so after many beers....
The sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen begins in London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances. His funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the western world. But what starts out as the most protected event on earth, turns into a deadly plot to kill the world's most powerful leaders, devastate every known landmark in the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. Only three people have any hope of stopping it: the President of the United States (Aaron Eckhart), his formidable secret service head (Gerard Butler), and an English MI-6 agent who rightly trusts no one.
Not a chance, lucky for us the Americans are here to save us again, even though the lead role is a Scotsman,( with a bad American accent ) action was very good, but we only have the SAS too save us ? so thanks 🙏 America. Actually quite enjoyed it when all said and done, total escapism nice 👍
Don't take it too seriously and it's a fun ride. It could have been a lot more cringe-worthy than it was. Good performances all round, even if Butler's 'American' accent takes a hit when he's talking to a fellow Scotsman.Same story as every other "Save the American President" plot but nicely done. Good soundtrack and nice action scenes, with plenty attention to detail.
This film just goes to show that you can have some great actors and still end up with a film that is barely watchable. To add insult to injury, apple have charged me twice for renting this load of tosh, hopefully they will refund me. Some quite good special effects but the plot and the heroism of Gerald Butler and the president, quite ludicrous. Still, it is a good job they were able to have a laugh about it, after killing loads of baddies and falling down a shaft.
If you've had a bad week at work, and want to watch some bad guys getting their heads blown off, while the US Secret Service crash around incompetently, while the terrorists are imbued with preternatural powers of planning and infiltration, this is for you.
I love it. It ws silly, gory, gratuious, lacked any sense of reality - totally.
But it was fun at the end of a week of stress - pure escapism.
Don't take it seriously. I'm not sure that it takes itself seriously. And it doens't require ANY thinking.
Gerald Butler has fallen.
This is exactly the cheesy film I expected so I'm not disappointed. I must admit there were some parts what were supposed to be serious and I found myself laughing. Glad I didn't spend more than 99p on renting this car crash of a film.......
Turned out as unrealistic, inconsistent and dreadful as anticipated. But if you can look past the plethora of eye rolling cliches & melodramatic nonsense, it's mildly enjoyable
Well worth watching. Special effects,first class.
Why people are taking this film too seriously I dont know. It is fast paced and full of action. I put off watching this film because of other reviews, but I decided to give it a go. I am glad I did.
I had watched the first film, so I wasn't expecting much, but seriously? The plot was implausible, the dialogue wooden, the acting terrible, and those were the best bits.
Nothing more to add
disspaointing as it has a great cast. wooden acting and predictable. could have been a great film.
I should read reviews first. Boring boring boring.
I enjoyed Olympus has fallen. It was stupid but fun. Just what you want.
This however is vindictive, racist and sadistic in every way.
It's not even funny.
At the beginning you think, ah an option for some shades of grey, for some terrorists / freedom fighters depends on perspective bit no, it's rag head jokes instead.
The last seven words of this movie sum up the pure cheese of it. How can a British actor not say stop now you having a laugh. Awful
Firstly, it takes suspension of disbelief to another level. Secondly, it is pretty crap. So, why 4 stars? Well, I knew the premise of the film before I rented and I had seen the previous movie, so I guessed pretty much what it would be like, and if you disregard the, hopefully, ridiculous, premise that "terrorists" could infiltrate London/police force etc and arrange such carnage, as an action blockbuster movie it did it well. Still a load of old tosh but wiles away a few hours with a beer and take away.
Watched it only because of good actors... but what an absolute rubbish of a film!
Waste of time! Rambo is ten times better! One of the worst films I have ever watched! I did fall asleep as well... finished next day as Inwas sitting on the toilet... cause that's what it was worth! Very poor!
This is the corniest film ever, it's almost like a comedy.
This has to be the turkey of the decade.
Painful to watch..
I'd recommend this movie to anyone whose only other life choice was to be buried alive with snakes during a Bee Gees concert.
Looks and feels like a TVs movie. Rent maybe but wish I hadn't wasted £14!
Plse don't waste your money, even to rent...terrible terrible movie
I found this throughly entertaining, it does exactly what you want it to do from an action film in 2016, doesn't need to be overly complicated at all. Acting overall was a good standard so I'm confused why so many bad reviews! Spoiler alert: Charing Cross tube station is actually Moorgate in the movie.
Thrilling and outstanding work of Babak Najafi. Highly recommend this movie. Thank you.
Firstly, the portrayal of British security forces was insulting and demeaning; and secondly, this was little more than a bunch of over-the-top set pieces and some bad CGI. Inaccurate, had no soul, no real plot and was mind-numbingly offensive.
Unbelievable, Unrealistic Poor acting, appaling story line just totally awful on every level.
Really wanted to like it but everything about it was bad. Poor script, xenophobic stereotypes, no plot just kill, kill, kill, swear a lot and kill some more.
So upset by this film - I really wanted it to be as good as the previous, but it simply wasn’t.
The acting is average at best, the storyline is simply non believable, special effects are so very noticeabley poor, he president could have been taken down easily a number of times, but no, delay after delay.
Probably the worst film I have seen so far in 2016 and this is most probably because it is the film I was looking forward to so much.
Perhaps watch this film which it is 50% cheaper than it currently is @£13.99HD :-(
This is by far the worst film I have ever seen
Completely ridiculous, it's ok if you like sci-fi and want to watch something but not realistic in any way. 1 guy puts to shame a whole terrorist group, the MI6, the special forces, the secret forces of all countries and barely gets any dust on him, it should have ended with the survivors having a McDonalds with an American flag in the background. Maybe good as a comedy.
Clap trap. You crash in Hyde Park and 10 minutes later you're at Charing Cross.....on foot?
It's always good to see London on film but this is sooooo bad, it actually makes me cross.
I have never been a big fan of sequels and I was not disappointed with this one. It was so bad that in some places it was good, if you know what I mean. Totally implausible pot, the acting was wooden and a number of the CGI effects were not up to today's standards of near realism. Decided to give it 2 stars based on how much I enjoyed the frst movie, although it falls between 1 and 2 really. Hopefully that's the end of the franchise. Please don't let's see a "Berlin has Fallen" next.
On every level this film leaves reality of all forms at the door. Olympus was bad, this is dire.
Terrible acting, terrible film. Awful.
The idea that London with some, what, dozen army units, could find itself completely overrun. Really? Aren’t there also like 20+ US Airforce stations too? I’m not saying that a terror attack is not possible, of course it is, but the idea that only one man can single handedly do something (even if he is a Scotsman), while the streets of London become a ghost town. Also, Westminster to Somerset House is about a mile away - it really wouldn’t take that long to get there. Oh and I’m pretty sure the blue light services have their own secure mobile network. I’m sure they would not be walking around not knowing how to contact each other. Seriously how exactly can you infiltrate the armed forces and the blue light services to that scale and no one catches wind of it? The idea would require long term sleepers. You couldn’t possibly just drop people into these units and expect no one to notice..
Disappointed... Waste of time and money. Wouldn't recommend anyone👎🏻👎🏻
A daft movie but great fun. It's all quite predictable but that's what makes it so enjoyable and the special effects are brilliant.
I enjoyed Olympus has Fallen. However far fetched some parts where. This film has gone so far beyond plausible it is fantasy. The CGI quality at the beginning is so poor I thought it was a B movie. The dialogue is equal to a poor English essay. On a personal note I thought it was insulting to the security services that do put their lives on the line for mine and everyone's safety. To them I thank you. I cannot thank the makers of this film for anything. Please don't even rent this your time is worth so much more.
Rated 25% on rottern tomatoes
This movie was amazing it had drama in, action and was all around incredable but I live in the UK and its petrifing thinking this could really happen even with MI5 and MI6 anything is possible and why give terrorists ideas like this that is my only fault in this movie otherwise it was truly wonderful!
I hope they make a second movie because I would happily go and see it!
Terrible implausible plot, cheesy poorly written script and mediocre acting with a wobbly American accent from Butler. Who ever let this get produced? Prime examples of weak storyline are scenes where the police force and even the Queens guard have been infiltrated by an army of terrorists that somehow wipe out the Worlds leaders and Butler's character single handedly takes them all on even though he has the SAS at his disposal. Luckily I got to see this while travelling for free but that's two hours of my life I will never get back!
Gerrard Butler cannot act and is made of pure cheese
Great follow up film, nice change to have the action based in the UK.
Simple effective plot.
Not over complicated, great special effects. Gerard Butler is great and gives the bad guys the sticky ends they all deserve !
Great action movie.
... just roll with the action and super special effects.
Watch it, roll with it and you'll see exactly what I mean 👍 ace ✔️
This has to be one of the worst action films of recent years (if not, the worst). The plot is simple and uninteresting and must have taken 5 minutes to write. From 10 minutes into the film the audience watches explosion, after car chase, after gun fight, continually until the end. Although this might sound fun, the ridiculous and cheap CGI and the lack of a profound narrative makes this a tedious watch, especially as there are no 'slow down' periods. I find it difficult to critique a film without listing some positives, but I would not be doing the film justice if I was to do so. I am indeed a big fan of action films, but never have I watched such rubbish before. I therefore cannot recommend you go out and buy this film, you will be disappointed for sure.
As an American it hurts me because I can not believe that given the superior intelligence and special forces of the British, it is unlikely that the attack could ever happen so it seems unrealistic from the off
Action packed, edge of your seat, defeating the baddies, saving the President sounds like the same story plot as Olympus Has Fallen... The only difference is it's in a different country!!! - Boring...
