London Has Fallen (R-13)

I call the past couple of weeks a GERARD BUTLER FESTIVAL because a couple of his movies are playing in cinemas all over.

After the death of the British prime minister, the world's most powerful leaders gather in London to pay their respects. Without warning, terrorists unleash a devastating attack that leaves the city in chaos and ruins. Secret Service agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) springs into action to bring U.S. President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) to safety. When Asher falls into the hands of the sinister organization, it's up to Banning to save his commander in chief from a horrible fate.-WWW

Another movie that would take you to the edge of your seat.  

This second installment is definitely more nail-biting, thrilling and all those other similar terms that describe an exciting movie.  If you "hate" the US of A and think that as a people they are arrogant, then don't watch this, because you would hate them even more, but if you don't mind the "arrogance", rather, the love for their country, then go ahead, watch this.  Seldom is a sequel far better than the first installment, but this one is definitely more beautiful than OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN, even if there are lots of parts that might depress you, if you are the type to get affected by stories/films, as if the scenes were really happening right before your eyes.


I couldn't help, but cry, when the world leaders who attended the State Funeral were massacred.  All those innocents became collateral damage(s) because of vengeance.

It was easy to spot the mole if you are keen because of what that person said during the earlier part of the film, but you would doubt it a bit towards the middle, but during the third part of the movie, you would again be convinced who that person is.

Charlotte Riley is more than Tom Hardy's wife here(hey, lest you be confused, Tom Hardy is nowhere to be found in this film).  I love her moves and her spunk.  She's really suitable for action films and she acts well too.

Aaron Eckhart is getting better and better each day.  He could play the villain or any type of role and totally own that role.  He is definitely President Asher.

Radha Mitchell's eyes are very expressive.

Morgan Freeman is Morgan Freeman.  He could be God, convincingly and he could be Vice President Trumbull like he was born to be him.

Angela Bassett is extra beautiful here and she played her role, perfectly.

Gerard Butler is not only one of my crushes, but he is also one of my favorite actors.  He could be hateful, spiteful, etc.  He could be a monster, but he could also be a debonair.  He could be funny and annoying.  His role as Mike Banning is tailor made for him.  I enjoyed watching him on the big screen and as always, I am quite impressed.

CAST:

Gerard Butler as Mike Banning, a Secret Service agent and Special Agent in charge of the Presidential Protection Division.
