After the British Prime Minister passes away under mysterious circumstances, his funeral is a must-attend event for leaders of the western world. However, what starts out as the most protected event on Earth turns into a deadly plot to kill the world's most powerful leaders, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. Only three people have any hope of stopping it: the President of the United States, his formidable Secret Service head, and an English MI-6 agent who rightly trusts no one.

Its the usual cliche, action-packed, rescue-mission movie: a stylized James Bond version. :) .
Overall, good and fun to watch but, of course, not very realistic. :) lol....Thx.

Boring propaganda piece. Stopped watching after 45 minutes as life is too short. I went to bed instead!

First there was "ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK" (A good film.)
Then, "ESCAPE FROM L.A." (Typical sequel, & not too great.)
Now, "ESCAPE FROM LONDON" (aka "LONDON HAS FALLEN")
A truly horrendously absurd movie. If M0hammad (& his other brother M0hammad) could pull this off, they wouldn't need to. They would have already taken over the world...
Once again, EVERY bad Follywood syndrome is in this film, with the added perk that they may have even come up with a couple of new ones! Of course, there is the bad guy you have to kill 5,000,000 times to finally be rid of him, maybe. And naturally (for Follywood), we have women in charge of every offensive combat security group. Plus, the (standard*) bada$$ secret agent woman who no guy is a match for. Physically or mentally... LOL!
*5'0", 90lbs, cute, looks like the model she is, dressed for a hot night out; in real life, couldn't take my little nephew in a fist fight, has never seen a gun, & wouldn't want to run her stockings or break a nail...
There's a lot of action, and the lead character is a little gratifying, only because they have him act slightly realistic about killing people that are trying to kill him and everybody else. (As opposed to all other films where this NEVER takes place. Hint: this is why Clint Eastwood & Arnie are famous.) But there is just SO MUCH WRONG about this movie, and ALL of it is totally absurd. (A very, very large understatement.)
Oh, and let's not forget the dialog. (Or rather, yes. LET'S forget it!) All of it is completely phony, per usual. (Does it ever cross anybody's mind, that people NEVER talk to each other like this in real life, even if they were conveying the same info in the same circumstances?) My favorite: When Pres. & bodyguard get to MI6 safe house, bodyguard asks Pres. if he'd like some water, then says "I don't know about you, but I'm thirsty as F__k!" Yeah, right.

So much wrong with this movie. Weird shots, overly dramatic, the score is off, and the Scottish is leaking through Gerard Butlers lines left and right. Not to mention half his lines are really stupid overly macho man stuff to make sure you get that he's a manly man of the manish variety, in case all his punching and shooting didn't get the idea across. But don't worry, he's got a soft side because he's got a kid on the way.
Really, don't bother with this one.

Rated 4/10. The rating is for the action, as the plot is like Swiss cheese - full of holes. Totally unbelieveable.

The acting is subpar.

Only watch if you're looking for a lot of shooting and killing. The story is nonsense.

This dramatic crime film stars Gerard Butler, Morgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart, and Angela Bassett in this very British film. The movie is about government officials trying to protect each other and the general public, following a terrorist attack in London after the Prime Minister died. This movie was definitely action-packed and played off of the natural fear of terrorism, however, the storyline wasn’t very complex and the characters didn’t really do anything to add to the story. It is enjoyable enough as a graphic crime film, but not entertaining enough as a drama film. I would rate this movie 2.5/5 stars

Some xenophobic lines, but Gerard Butler shooting bad guys is cool if that is what you're looking for.

This is how an action movie should be done. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

Loads of quotes in IMdB already, e.g.:

Mike Banning: [about the President's bad driving] The car is bullet proof, not politician proof.

Aamir Barkawi: Vengeance must always be profound and absolute.
