Plot: In London for the Prime Minister's funeral, Mike Banning discovers a plot to assassinate all the attending world leaders.
This is a very fun and underrated sequel that I feel gets too much hate from people, this is not supposed to be Mad Max Fury Road which I felt got too much praise, but this film knew what it was and went for it. Most of the cast do a good job with their characters especially Gerard Butler who is clearing having a ball playing this character and it shows. The story is straight forwarded and to the point unlike other films like Mad Max which was all over the place and never took a break.
The action in this film is very well done, allowing us to see what is happening and not resorting to using shaky cam. The fallen films are throwbacks to the 80s and 90s one man action films that we consider classics and I love seeing that since we rarely have that these days.
The only negative to this film is the villains are very weak compared the first one, they don't have a presence to them to allow us to be threatened by them.
Overall, London Has Fallen is a very fun sequel that knew what it was and went for it, if you're an action fan and you liked the first one and you didn't see this check it out, you won't regret it.
