After the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances, all leaders of the Western world must attend his funeral. But what starts out as the most protected event on earth, turns into a deadly plot to kill the world's most powerful leaders and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. The President of the United States, his formidable secret service head and a British MI-6 agent who trusts no one are the only people that have any hope of stopping it.Written by
The character Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman) was the Speaker of the House of Representatives in the previous instalment and is the Vice-President in this one. It's never explained/mentioned if he was either voted to succeed the deceased Vice-President (on rules by the 25th amendment) or ran on the election ticket (for President Asher's second term, as it's mentioned he's six years into his presidency) and won the election.

When the Prime Minister died the Presidents would not have been
the one to go to the funeral, there would not have been enough time
for the Secret Service to plan for his protection. Some one else like the
Secretary Of State or Vice President would attend in his place. See more »
London Has Fallen is directed by Babak Najafi and include the main cast of Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, and Morgan Freeman. I enjoyed the movie throughout, even though it started off really boring it definitely had some interesting parts here and there. The ending is also quite fun, in a turn-your-brain-off kind of way. What bothered me the most was the editing, which was terrible up until that one-shot sequence at the end, where it finally got a bit better. Gerard Butler is really great on the role, a total badass, even though he was so in a very unrealistic way. The overall character fits with the theme of the movie. Aaron Eckhart is also fine here, as he is in any movie ever. I think this actor is terribly underrated and overlooked no matter what role he is playing. The CGI is pretty underwhelming, they should have increased the budget from the first movie, which was also better in almost every aspect than this sequel. London Has Fallen is not made to be over analyzed, it is just a fun action meaningless, suspenseful and to a point unnecessary movie that's made for 90's action movie fans to enjoy.
