Brief Synopsis – In this sequel to Olympus has Fallen (2016), Mike Banning once again must save The President when a terrorist group plans a deadly attack on World leaders during a funeral in London.

My Take on it – I watched this immediately upon finishing the previous film and it was such a great experience watching them back to back because it gives you so much context that way.

This movie has great momentum for neatly two-thirds of it and it’s so much fun watching how organized and planned out it all was.

After about an hour, the plot loses some of its steam and changes gears completely.

This is filled with twists and turns that make you know that no one can be trusted which then forces you to pay even more attention to what is happening because it’s quite intriguing.

Gerard Butler is once again amazing as the patriotic and fearless secret service agent.

London locales were beautiful to look at and it all makes me wonder how true to life the movie’s geography really
is.

Bottom Line – Almost as good as the original except is loses a bit of steam halfway through. Butler is once again amazing as the fearlessly dedicated Secret Service Agent. Filled with twists and turns that made you question every character’s loyalty. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In the international trailer, a slowed down piano version of London Bridge can be heard. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy
