London Has Fallen
Election season brings us another president in peril story. How did NCFCA critics review London Has Fallen?
Just before plunging a shiv into another brown-skinned neck, Banning exults, with a bombast reminiscent of 300, “We’re not just a flag; we’re not just one man. Assholes like you have been trying to kill us for a long time. A thousand years from now, we’ll still be here.” Tack on a homily intoned by Morgan Freeman, no less, warning against American inaction in the face of international terror, and you’ve basically got Trump: The Movie.
The movie takes care to identify (via urgent type) countless characters (e.g. “Allan Trumbull, U.S. Vice President,” “Jacquelin Marshall, MI6,” “Carmen Sandiego, Criminal Mastermind”), a useless endeavor since most are only given a line or two before blending into the background.
