Mike Banning is back on the presidential detail as President Asher and other world leaders gather in London to attend the British Prime Minister’s funeral. All hell breaks loose when terrorists attack the dignitaries and the city’s landmarks. The sequel to Olympus Has Fallen turns everything to 11. The explosions are bigger, the body count is higher, and the script is even dumber and more far-fetched than before. Now the hero can’t turn a street corner in London without running into another member of the terrorist group. Nevertheless, the movie is short and snappy, and oddly enjoyable. Followed by Angel Has Fallen (2019).
