Did You Know?


Though it's the third instalment, it is the first time Morgan Freeman and Gerard Butler actually work together. In Olympus Has Fallen (2013), they (at least physically) shared no scenes. In London Has Fallen (2016), the scene they shared was actually filmed separately (using body doubles) and edited together. See more »


Once again Hollywood believes that Oxygen is explosive and in this film brings down a whole building. Oxygen supports combustion but itself is neither combustible nor explosive. See more »


Leah Banning: He's in line to be director of the Secret Service.
Agent Thompson: Exactly. Which is why I believe Mike saw the inevitable and was looking for a big payout for you guys. Now, if that's the case, Leah, that means somebody paid him to do this. If you can help me find that person, it would help Mike's case considerably.
Leah Banning: Fuck you, lady. You can't play me. My husband is a good man.

Angel Butler
25 September 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Leonidas cannot fail ... I mean fall ... right? Sorry I'm mixing up my movies here. But you can see the action star Butler going for it again - a third time. And if you thought the other movies were crazy and unrealistic ... well you were right and this one adds to that! What did you think I was going to say? In all seriousness - do not take this movie serious.

Predictable story, predictable twists and turns ... and an even relatively mild Nick Nolte. But the story itself is quite out there ... really wild and really "explosive" (pun intended). A lot of action and a lot of nonsense ... and it can be quite some fun, if you allow it to
