Gerard Butler’s back as the gung-ho US secret agent and this time the backdrop to all the chaos is London.
It’s basically a rerun of Olympus Has Fallen with more landmarks being blown to smithereens. This time, Butler has to save the day, again, when a dastardly Asian terrorist targets world leaders – including Aaron Eckhart’s US president – who have gathered in the British capital.
Dropping more F-bombs than the film has explosions, Butler’s macho hero dashes hither and thither across the capital (the film’s grasp of geography is somewhat hazy), his exploits even more ostentatiously dumb and jingoistic than before.
It’s all very silly of course, but no less entertaining for that.
