Nothing attracts me more to a movie than a wicked cast. Even if the storyline doesn’t necessarily appeal to me, I will give a movie a chance if the cast is impressive enough. London Has Fallen is definitely an action film. I’m not huge on action-packed thrillers. The story has to be really good for me to be into it. However, the rule still applies – the great cast will be just enough to draw me in, like in this movie. London Has Fallen contains a few of my favorite actors, like Morgan Freeman and Gerard Butler *swoon*.

When the British Prime Minster dies unexpectedly, Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) knows it is his duty to prep with Secret Service Director Lynne Jacobs (Angela Bassett) for them to accompany U.S. President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) to the state funeral at St Paul’s Cathedral in London. With every powerful world leader set to attend, the funeral should be the most protected event on Earth. Yet within moments of arriving, heads of government are assassinated and London landmarks are attacked. Asher, Banning, and Jacobs are ambushed and retreat amidst a hail of gunfire and explosives. The devastated British capital goes into lockdown. Banning will stop at nothing to secure Asher’s safe return home. Back at the White House, Vice President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman) races against time brainstorming with top advisors in the Situation Room to get those trapped in London a lifeline of support and a way out.
