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.
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.
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 HasFallen," 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.
Action, action and more action. One question....did you like Olympus HasFallen? 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.
A thriller of a sequel to Olympus HasFallen! The country has recovered, then there is a reason for the President and many world leaders to meet in London - and POW, the action begins! You have to see it to believe it! All Hell Breaks Loose even worse even worse! This is a movie worth owning and watching over and over! It arrived on time and in good condition, thank you!`
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

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 hasfallen. Top notch action and very recommended.
This is the 2nd installment in the saga and Gerard Butler is once again a macho Secret Service agent devoted to protecting the President of the United States. In this story the setting is London and in short order the destruction is massive. I am a real fan of Gerard Butler and have purchased every single movie he has been in (including some UK movie and TV productions). Just like the guy ... he isn't Lawrence Olivier but there are certainly worse actors out there and I like his real life personality (self effacing and funny). This is a good sequel as sequels go ... curious if there will be a subsequent movie.
I quite enjoyed Olympus hasFallen but this was appalling. Totally implausible -- what, insert villains into the Metropolitan Police, the ambulance service, and the Queen's Guard all at the same time? The Metropolitan Police Commissioner as the sole point of contact with the White House? Empty London streets? The White House surprised that a major terrorist attack is all over social media? Weak script. No acting. And Aaron Eckhart lets himself be taken hostage again. I couldn't even be bothered to watch to the end.
3.0 out of 5 starsLondonhasfallen for hollywood style action

I am surprised that I enjoyed this as much as I did because I was very underwhelmed by the original.
Apart from the continuous action I guess what I most enjoyed here was Gerard Butler's agent working side by side with Aaron Eckhart's president. The scenes depicting the president having to remember how to drive a car and taking on the baddies one to one, were very watchable. You never had to worry the heros wouldn't make it, as the film opens with the secret agents wife making arrangements for the birth of their child which makes it a given that he will see it after it is born, and this is a lucrative franchise.
On the negative side this is very one dimensional, the goodies are heros and the baddies are evil through and through. Also I have never ever seen so few people on the streets of London, where were the fighter jets when the president's helicopter was being threatened ? Overall, if you are looking for a no nonsense action movie on a Saturday night after a couple of beers, maybe this is just the ticket.
Haven't laughed so much in a long time and what the hell happened to all the traffic and pedestrians when El President and his chum went running thru the City? London fell but flat on its face with the Americans yet again saving the day. If you want a laugh then waste your money.

Started well and then became progressively absurd. An American agent fighting to save his President's life against all odds ... the agent killed every terrorist he came in contact with ... and there were literally hundreds of them ... fatuous retorts too ... "What kept you?" The film lacked atmosphere and even a part of Charing Cross Station was added for the convenience of the film. What a joke!
