  • London Has Fallen Critique (Spoiler Alert!)

    Fast-paced and should I say exciting action movie (very violent!) but at the same time absurd to the extreme and full of lies about Islamic terrorism in Pakistan. The political correctness in this film makes my stomach turn.

    First of all, the image of the Pakistani terrorists has been sterilized and edited to make them look like Italian mobsters almost (expensive suits, Rolex watches, Mercedes cars) or perhaps like Victor Bout of Russia.

    Any and all references to Islamism and the Quran have been removed.

    Now the Pakistani terrorists are merely wealthy arms dealers, who got angry because Western powers have put their profits in jeopardy. Ugh...OK?

    Secondly, you have this absurd image of the President of USA who is a total violent badass running around with a pistol and then machine gun personally shooting and executing armed opponents.

    I'm ambivalent about the movie. I don't know if I'd recommend it.

    My eldest son gave me the DVD to watch...I'm really glad I didn't pay any money to watch it, it was utter crap.

      As expected.
      It is a sequel (your first warning about an imminent crap-fest right there) of Olympus has fallen, one of the most unreal movies made in the last decade.

      Hopefully, the President and his ultra-loyal yet under appreciated bodyguard were both killed, and this dopey formula won't be repeated.

        It already has been. There is a second American film with Jamie Foxx about the taking of the White House which is even crappier than the first.

        The tend towards excessive violence and gore is getting very disturbing.

          Or with a bauble or medal
          Can win mans heart for you;
          And many a blessing know to stew
          To make a megloamaniac bright;
          Give honour to the dainty Corse,
          The Pixie is a little shite.
