The chief of the Metropolitan Police is introduced as "Chief Inspector," and introduces himself with that rank. Chief Inspector is the the fourth-lowest rank in the police force; seven ranks are above that level. The chief's title should be "Commissioner". The uniform depicts the correct insignia on its epaulets. See more »
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.
