On Tuesday My sister and I got to see an early preview of London Has Fallen, which was pretty cool. The screening was a little different to what I’m used to when I usually go to the cinema. There were security in the room during the whole film, to obviously make sure nobody was filming the film, and before the film started one of the colleagues gave the following announcement:
(It went something like) ” Good Evening, welcome to a special screening of London Has Fallen. You are all lucky enough to be seeing this film before anyone else in the country (don’t think that was actually true), and as this is the case, if possible, please avoid putting anything about the film on social media until it’s general release tomorrow.” – He actually meant Thursday.
Anyway on to the film itself, London Has Fallen is the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen, which if you haven’t seen it, you really should. I would say though, that you can still enjoy the new film without knowing what happened in the first. A lot of the characters from the first film are back and fighting to stop what is actually a pretty big problem.
London Has Fallen is completely my type of film and I’m sure it is for many others. Although, I feel as though the word ‘action’ isn’t quite right for categorising the film as it is an understatement. The film is like one huge action scene, with the exploding of buildings and hanging out of cars whilst shooting at people, almost continuous throughout. The worry with there being so many stunts and a huge volume of action is whether the storyline of the film is affected, which I’m confident in saying it wasn’t. The storyline, in my opinion, isn’t complicated but it is still interesting to follow!
As I’m trying to be very careful about not giving away any spoilers, the last thing I’m going to mention is that the cinematography and visual effects within the film are bloody good, making everything look so realistic!
The film is officially released today so if you haven’t already got tickets to go see it, as long as you’re a fan of action films, I’d definitely recommend it!
