More Info:
  • Steven Rea

    An impossibly enjoyable live-action cartoon that plays on our real-life anxieties about vengeful cadres of foreign radicals blowing up people - and places.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    Brash, brutal, and simplistic in equal measure, it’s a retrograde work that, for better and worse, delivers its old-school mayhem with punishing precision and unrepentant glee.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Brad Wheeler

    The film is a popcorn-crowd pleaser, but a “yippee ki-yay” or two away from something more memorable.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    As action-thrillers go, this one provides what the previews tease. Maybe that’s enough for an evening’s mindless, throw-away entertainment, but I can’t help but be disappointed that the filmmakers couldn’t have brought something more inventive to a genre that too often relies on worn-out tropes.

  • Todd McCarthy

    While not nearly as elaborate, nor as visually sophisticated as the last Mission: Impossible outing or the most recent Bonds, London Has Fallen is actually more plausible at its core, if not in its details, which is partly why it succeeds in laying claim to an audience's attention for the entirety of its swift running time.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Kate Lloyd

    It’s all so overly macho that it plays like a camp pleasure-cruise.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Soren Andersen

    The action is pumped up. The destruction is extreme. The whole thing is absurd.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    Like its predecessor, the film is content to dumbly relish in the inanity of Mike's rampage.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Christian Holub

    The new sequel, London Has Fallen, implausibly ups its predecessor’s stakes to "Die Hard in the City of London." Unfortunately, widening the scope this dramatically causes the entire fragile action-movie axis to spin wildly out of control.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Andy Klein

    Iranian-born director Babak Najafi (“Sebbe”) and the four credited screenwriters... make things move fast enough to keep you awake, but not fast enough to finesse its plot absurdities past an alert viewer’s mind.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Najafi's R-rated London Has Fallen doesn't target the genteel viewer. Rather, it aims squarely for moviegoers who like their action bloody, their fights brutal, their body count sky-high.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    Remember “Olympus Has Fallen”? This one is worse.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    It's all silly and meant to be fun, except when Najafi tries to throw in some serious bits, which wind up being sillier still.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    Bloodthirsty, derivative and xenophobic nonsense.

    Total Film Full Review
  • William Thomas

    It’s a film that doesn’t so much invite you to switch off your brain as take it out and dump it in the nearest popcorn box.

    Empire Full Review
  • Fionnuala Halligan

    Creepy “send them back to Fuckheadistan” sentiment overwhelms London Has Fallen’s guilty pleasures, its meaty violence and xenophobic nastiness giving the cheddar an unpleasant aftertaste.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    There is some surreal fun at the beginning as everything collapses.... But then it’s the same thing over again.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    There’s little drama, but the fights and chases (Butler hanging out of a moving SUV) are exciting, if not very original.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The film, with its wearying gamer-style rounds of death, is routine at best.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    As long as there are enemies in Islamic lands, we'll probably have to endure risible time-wasters like London Has Fallen, designed to justify blinkered foreign policy attitudes and stoke jokey hatred.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    The action never stops once the first car bomb is triggered, but the second half of London Has Fallen takes place mostly in the dark, where nobody can see the budget.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    For all the slicing and dicing of the editing, narrative momentum grinds to a trudge after the synthetic spectacle of the capital’s undoing.

    Variety Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    No characterization. A plot you could write on a single sheet of toilet paper. Sadistic violence we’re meant to cheer. A surprise that wouldn’t fool anyone who left the theater after the opening credits and came back for the last 10 minutes.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    For the sequel, London Has Fallen, Butler and director Babak Najafi (HBO’s “Banshee”) strike a tone that’s more consistent — consistently dumb.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Randall Colburn

    London Has Fallen is terrorism porn, an alarmist, jingoistic piece of CGI-soaked garbage that implores its audience to fear nothing after sensationalizing the slaughter of innocents and the destruction of a major city.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • David Lewis

    When viewing the action thriller London Has Fallen, there’s no escaping the reality that you’ve seen everything on the screen before — many, many times. For every bullet, and you will lose count, there is a cliche.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Daniel Schindel

    The special effects are worse than I thought modern studio filmmaking allowed for. Actors such as Robert Forster and Melissa Leo reprise their roles from the first film with maybe half-a-dozen lines apiece. Were it not for the presence of said actors, this could easily pass for a DTV spin-off.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    Will this hard-luck president again defy death while his stoic sidekick vanquishes the nasty, uncivilized terrorists? It’s hard to care when a movie is this formulaic and moronic.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    London Has Fallen is remarkable only because of how much worse it is than its inane predecessor.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Peter Sobczynski

    A horrible and wildly unnecessary follow-up that might actually be worse than its predecessor. Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Perhaps these are dark times, both onscreen and off, but even if they are not, London Has Fallen is an hour-and-a-half of viciously Us vs. Them, Trump-style bad filmmaking on all known levels.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Make American movies great again. You can start by boycotting this one.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Racist, stupid and boasting cheesy effects.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Perhaps the movie’s politics—which range from tone deaf to irredeemable—would be more of an issue if it weren’t so inept.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    It’s difficult to imagine anyone appearing in this film thought of it as more than a payday.
