London Has Fallen 4K Review
Two years ago, the US military bombed the home of Pakistani arms dealer Amir Barkawi (Alon Abutbul) and killed his daughter. Now Barkavi and his sons are ready to take terrible revenge on the entire Western world. First they organize the secret assassination of the British Prime Minister. When all the leaders of Western countries come to the funeral, terrorists hired by Barkavi turn central London into a battlefield and kill several heads of state and their retinue. Only US President Ben Asher (Aaron Eckhart) and his chief of security Mike Benning (Gerard Butler) survive miraculously. They have nowhere to wait for help - the London police and special services are completely paralyzed. So the Americans survive on their own, shooting back and fighting off the criminals pursuing them.

The film was shot partly in London, partly in India and Bulgaria, at the Boyana studio in Sofia
Three years ago, Antoine Fuqua's action movie "The Fall of Olympus" was released, in which a former US president's bodyguard fought off the head of state from North Korean terrorists who had seized the White House. Critics weren't happy with this tape, but it made $ 160 million on a $ 70 million budget. So Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart set off on a new adventure - this time on the streets of London, empty after a series of brazen terrorist attacks.

The Fall of London is the English-language debut of the Iranian-born Swedish director Babak Najafi. His first film, Sebbe, won the 2011 Swedish National Golden Beetle Award (Oscar equivalent) in the Best Film category.
Unlike the previous film, which, although not very successful, nevertheless tried to be a thriller with unexpected plot twists, "The Fall of London" is a straightforward action movie, the scenario surprises of which end at the moment when it becomes clear what the terrorists' plan is. In other words, as soon as Ben and Mike are left alone with the villains. After that, the heroes wander the whole film or drive around the city, periodically arranging carnage on the street, then in the subway, or in a half-empty building. British and American officials are powerlessly watching what is happening on the monitors. At the very end of the tape, the formula changes slightly, but its essence remains the same - a minimum of intrigue, a maximum of corpses. If you remember the action movies of the 1980s, you know what this is about.

The film's deliberate old-fashionedness has led to the fact that Western critics tore him to pieces for political incorrectness. Just think - white heroes are exterminating an entire army of Muslims! True, "Allahu Akbar!" in the picture, no one screams, and the villains are driven not by religiosity, but by the good old desire for revenge. Fanatics are the main characters who, in the intervals between shootings, communicate almost exclusively with patriotic clichés. But this nuance does not reassure Western liberal critics. On the contrary, they hate the jingoistic patriots, who are also middle-aged white men.

However, these cultural wars are far from us. In Russia, "The Fall of London" does not look like a movie with political overtones, but as a silly, but entertaining tragicomic action, in which insanity is the main source of humor. However, there are in the film and just jokes in the spirit of the 1980s ("There are more than a hundred people there! - They will regret that there were so few of them!"). The tape begins seriously, but as events unfold, Butler's hero turns more and more into the humorous character of Schwarzenegger from "Commando". That in such a movie is only a plus.

The real disadvantages of the tape are not in its script, but in the fact that, for example, in "The Fall of London" there is no full-fledged "final boss", like the hero of Rick Yuna in "The Fall of Olympus". In the new film, a similar plot role is played by the terrorist commander's eldest son Barkavi, but he is not drawn to the "tough guy". When Mike, in the final battle, does not kill him with the first blow, this is not perceived as a manifestation of the villain's strength, but as an unexpected weakness of the hero, who previously easily dealt with terrorists of any caliber. So instead of a tough fight in the spirit of the "Commando" ending, the picture ends with a fussy brawl, by the end of which Mike is less respected than at the beginning of the film. Disorder!

Also frustrating is the sheer and unreasonable masculinity of the tape. The plot of the film would not suffer in the least if Ben and Mike were accompanied on their journey by the heroine of Charlotte Riley, a friend of the protagonist from the British counterintelligence. After all, since the action takes place on British territory, then an English guide would come in handy from all points of view, from practical to legal (not to mention an additional source of sex appeal). However, Jacqueline Marshall only briefly joins the main characters, after which he returns to his helplessly observing colleagues. She has a role in the plot, but that role is tiny and optional. It would be much more logical to prescribe it for a long time at the epicenter of events. True, in this case, the genre would instruct her and Mike to start a romance, and a pregnant wife awaits the hero at home. But was it really impossible to show a militant professional friendship without romantic complications?

The creators of the tape probably spent a significant part of the 60 millionth budget on special-effect explosions of London landmarks - terrorists destroy politicians along with masterpieces of architecture. However, they did not have enough money for high-quality, convincing computer graphics, and this part of the film is less impressive than it could. Fortunately, this does not have much knowledge, since all these scenes are just a prologue to the main action. And in it pyrotechnics and tricks are real. But, however, banal - for all his dashing in the film there is not a single truly memorable combat scene. And this is the main trouble of "The Fall of London".
