User Reviews

 
This movie is great for it's genre; tactical porn. If you think sneaky assassins are cool, this is the movie for you.
25 December 2016 | by ggitesySee all my reviews

Really guys, it's not meant to be a probing exploration of post-colonial cultural identity and the failure of western statecraft to respect indigenous autonomy. I'm well aware of the fact that the chaos of the third world didn't fall out of the sky, and that The West in general and America specifically is culpable in creating the monsters it now has to face.

That's not what this movie is about. This movie is about really clever and well coordinated terrorists attacking London again and again and again.

Is it blatantly patriotic and biased? Yep. Is it realistic? No. Is it fun if you like that sort of thing? You bet it is, and America totally kicks ass in it too! You should watch Olympus has Fallen as well. Frankly I think it's the better of the two.
