London has Fallen: Yes a One-Man Show but apparently it is Good.

#LondonHasFallen  #MovieReviews

The movie is the sequel of 'Olympus has fallen' movie. Where it's prequel didn't do much good, I found Olympus has fallen an average movie, I actually liked 'London has fallen' a lot more. I watched the movie for Gerard Butler and it was totally worth it.

Yes, the movie is a one-man show. It is unrealistic and ridiculous at so many places, i.e. where the entire London force has fallen and a man is able to kill everyone, but it has its own charm. When I was watching the movie I was only into the moment. It is a fast-paced movie where you see action, drama and thriller. Many people are criticizing it and rating it low for same reason, but what I fail to understand is that how is it different to James Bond movie or MI series? There too it is a one-man show and personally, I love them too :)
However what I find hilarious is that, where so many world leaders have fallen, in the end it is all about American President in London. Well, it is Hollywood movie so I guess that is justified.

Also I read that many people are saying that it is racist. I and a lot of people who watched it didn't think so. There is terrorism in certain parts of the world and that is used as a plot. I don't know if there are any hidden political agendas but to me it is as simple as any other action movie.

In terms of casting, there are two important characters: Gerard Butler as Mike Banning, a Secret Service agent and Special Agent in charge of the Presidential Protection Division and Aaron Eckhart as Benjamin Asher, the President of the United States. They both have a done wonderful job. The acting is good and dialogue delivery is perfect. Rest all are support characters who fill in various blanks and they did a nice job too.


Overall I liked the  movie. If you are looking for an action packed drama with a good plot, then I am not sure what else you are looking for. 

Hope my review helps. Do share your views if you feel otherwise.

Love and Cheers
