Ohhh… the title of this review says 80s/90s, but Agent Banning (Gerard Butler) takes a leaf from all the previous heroes, who ran the line of fire without taking a bullet. The machine guns may lose the target, but Banning with his mighty pistol. Always, goes spot on. Is that a cliché from time immemorial? So be it.


It becomes an arduous task to force-fit this film in the action genre. With the genre transcending cheap thrills and packed stunts, you extent a little bit of brains sprinkled on the narrative. But alas! You fail to find ‘em. But this man, Butler, hits it straight with his dodging bullets and saving the president with elan.


London Has Fallen may not be a swashbuckling entertainment, but crawls to reach there. You may write this off as a politically incorrect commentary on the USA and the way their leaders are guarded day in and day out. However, when you could palate Olympus Has Fallen, this one just shifts the action to another city.


What worked in the previous film was the way Banning went through the White House, saved and deactivated the catastrophe. Here, the trouble is limited to a person and the imminent worldly chaos that triggers later on. That being said, the kill fest stays on without a change.


 


With the logic defying everywhere, the story succumbing to incoherencies, plot twists and one-liners borrowed from oldies, the scenes breathing lot of violence, the action bordering on the videogame-ish, the thrills ranging from collapsing structures to showering bullets, London Has Fallen dissipates the effect of its predecessor. However, it sticks to the template offering few doses of nail-biting entertainment.
