London Has Fallen is competently made and offers what any viewer would reasonably expect. There's plenty of action, a fair amount of wide-scale destruction, and a rousing climax.

James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 2016-03-03

 

An impossibly enjoyable live-action cartoon that plays on our real-life anxieties about vengeful cadres of foreign radicals blowing up people - and places.

Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2016-03-03

 

London Has Fallen is Donald Trump in film form.

Christy Lemire, ChristyLemire.com, 2016-03-14

 

Racist, stupid and boasting cheesy effects that wouldn't pass muster on basic cable.

Lou Lumenick, New York Post, 2016-03-10

 

Agent Banning is the latest in a long line of heroes whose every bullet kills someone while the bad guys constantly spray him with hundreds of bullets from machine guns, none of which seem to hit the target.

Andy Klein, TheWrap, 2016-03-07

 

Butler doesn't even have his own catchphrase. He just poaches two of Schwarzenegger's, bellowing both "Get to the chopper!" and "I'll be back!"

Amy Nicholson, MTV, 2016-03-05

 

director Babak Najafi, who not surprisingly staged something called Easy Money II, botches the action sequences so crudely, consistently and cynically that he makes Michael Bay look like Kurosawa.

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 2016-03-04

 

Somewhere along the line, it may occur to you that Babak Najafi's sequel to 2013's president-in-peril pic Olympus Has Fallen is a sly attack on America masquerading as a celebration of same.

Matthew Lickona, San Diego Reader, 2016-03-04

 

Butler's dark gusto is unexplained, and his character lacks the charisma and one-liners of fellow macho world-savers Rambo, James Bond and John McClane.

Brad Wheeler, Globe and Mail, 2016-03-04

 

It's rarely exciting or suspenseful, and some of the digital effects are also reminiscent of a 1980s action movie level.

Adam Graham, Detroit News, 2016-03-04

 

Represents a geopolitical obliteration fantasy flushed from the mind of the angriest and dumbest and most conspiracy-minded among us.

Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, 2016-03-03

 

President Benjamin Asher needs two things: better security personnel and better scriptwriters.

Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, 2016-03-03

 

Like the original, London Has Fallen features a top-notch cast and some crackling good action sequences. And, alas, like the original, this is a cliche-riddled, aggressively violent, laughably plotted exploitation flick.

Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times, 2016-03-03

 

While taking the action to an international stage, the lumbering story isn't at all concerned with legit drama, let alone intelligently considering the ramifications of the mayhem it imagines.

Tom Russo, Boston Globe, 2016-03-03

 

It makes the 2013 original Olympus Has Fallen - loglined as "Die Hard in the White House" - seem in nostalgic comparison like quality entertainment and a model of logic and good taste.

Peter Howell, Toronto Star, 2016-03-03

 

[Butler and Eckhart's] mildly diverting performances aren't enough to dislodge the film's troubling pro-engagement message.

Leah Pickett, Chicago Reader, 2016-03-03

 

The sequel swaps cunning for brutal violence and turns Banning into a one man killing machine.

Liz Braun, Toronto Sun, 2016-03-03

 

I don't know the best way to deal with America's enemies, but I suspect a jingoistic macho-porn slaughterfest is not likely to win hearts and minds.

Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2016-03-03

 

"London Has Fallen" is remarkable only because of how much worse it is than its inane predecessor, 2013's "Olympus Has Fallen."

Stephanie Merry, Washington Post, 2016-03-03

 

It's all silly and meant to be fun, except when Najafi tries to throw in some serious bits, which wind up being sillier still.

Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, 2016-03-03
