D movie at best
2 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

CGI is terrible, story is so implausible it hurts. Even the plausible parts are implausible. There is no part of this story that floats. Technically it is less accurate than a mickey mouse cartoon. Turns out that everyone is a terrorist! This should be titled 'Escape from London' and follow the 'Escape from New York' series.

If you can get past a story that is 1/10 and CGI that is 3/10, the acting is 5/10. Seeing the actors stay in this script when it is pure trash is impressive in itself.

Even the explosions are a joke. Pure CGI trash. Morgan Freeman's contract must have stipulated that he doesn't have to get out of a sitting position the entire movie.
