Critic Reviews of "London Has Fallen"
ChristyLemire.comMarch 14, 2016
London Has Fallen is Donald Trump in film form.
New York PostMarch 10, 2016
Racist, stupid and boasting cheesy effects that wouldn't pass muster on basic cable.
TheWrapMarch 07, 2016
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.
MTVMarch 05, 2016
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!"
Rolling StoneMarch 04, 2016
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.
San Diego ReaderMarch 04, 2016
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.
Reel Talk OnlineMarch 21, 2017
London Has Fallen is another one of those forgettable end-of-winter action films that don't really make much common sense but are really fun to watch when you are distracted with popcorn.
New Zealand HeraldFebruary 15, 2017
London Has Fallen felt like a pitch-perfect parody of the hysteria around terror or a truly terrifying piece of xenophobic propaganda. If you choose to laugh at the irony of it, you'll probably have a great time.
Salt Lake TribuneDecember 31, 2016
Action movies don't get dumber, louder or meaner than London Has Fallen.
Washington Free BeaconJuly 14, 2016
Stupid but action-packed Olympus sequel entertains.
TheShiznit.co.ukJuly 11, 2016
There are some genuine moments of comedy, thanks in part to the (deliberately?) clunky script and hokey special effects. Don't question why, just strap yourself in and feel the cheese.
Baltimore MagazineJune 10, 2016
[London Has Fallen] is atrocious -- wildly implausible, casually racist, mean-spirited, and strangely defensive about U.S. drone strikes that take out innocent civilians in the Middle East.

Waleed ZuaiterBirth date: 28 May 1965, IsraelDescription: The youngest of three brothers, Waleed was born in Sacramento, California, but grew up in Kuwait from the age of 5 until 19. He made frequent visits to his mother's family in San Francisco during the summer holidays and he was very fortunate that during his upbringing his family traveled extensively within the Middle East, Europe and the United States.He moved to the US to attend The George Washington University where he received a degree in Philosophy and Theatre. Waleed performed at various theaters in the Washington DC area after college including, The Folger Shakespeare Library, The Washington Shakespeare Company, The Studio Theatre, The Source Theatre, and the Keegan Theatre Company.In December of 2001, while still living in the DC area, Waleed made a trip to New York to audition for the West Coast Premiere of Tony Kushner's new play, Homebody/Kabul. He booked his first audition in New York sending him out to Berkeley, California for a successful run of the show and the start of what soon proved to be a promising theatre career in New York.Waleed then moved to New York and in less than 6 months landed his first job there in the Broadway production of Sixteen Wounded, by Eliam Kraiem (with Judd Hirsch and Martha Plimpton). He followed this up with a role in the hit off-Broadway play, Guantanamo: Honor Bound To Defend Freedom, ranked as "one of the best ten plays of 2004" by the Wall Street Journal and Entertainment Weekly. In his upcoming theatre credits Waleed attained further recognition as he was awarded a Drama Desk Award along with the rest of the cast for "2006 Outstanding Ensemble Performance" for David Hare's play at the Public Theatre, Stuff Happens directed by Tony Award-Winner Daniel Sullivan. He received extensive critical praise for his performance in this landmark production. He followed that up performing opposite Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline in the Public Theatre's production of Bertolt Brecht's Mother Courage adapted by Tony Kushner and directed by Tony Award-winner George C. Wolfe.Waleed's performances in supporting roles began to attract the attention of productions that were now looking at him for leading roles. He next starred in the US premiere production of David Greig's The American Pilot at the Manhattan Theatre Club, under the direction of Artistic Director Lynne Meadow. Shortly thereafter, Waleed found himself being whisked away to Tunisia to co-star in the Emmy-Award winning mini-series from HBO and the BBC, "House of Saddam" playing Saddam Hussein's best friend. The series received tremendous critical acclaim from around the globe, and Waleed's performance was hi-lighted in many international reviews. Having finished his work in Tunisia, Zuaiter headed the cast of Masked, an explosive play by Ilan Hatsor, starring as the eldest of three Palestinian brothers, set during the 1st Intifada and performed at the Daryl Roth 2 theater, Off-Broadway.On stage most recently Zuaiter enjoyed rave reviews for his heart-rending, and elegant portrayal of an Iraqi translator in the critically acclaimed, award-winning new play Betrayed, based upon (and scripted by) George Packer's widely lauded reporting of the Iraq war for The New Yorker. The play went on to receive a special one-night production at The Kennedy Center in the nation's capital, was filmed for PBS TV and was performed and taped at L.A. Theatreworks for national radio broadcast. All productions were directed by Naked Angels co-founding member and Artistic Director Pippin Parker. The Kennedy Center production received further attention because it was hosted by Refugees International as a special initiative for Iraqi refugees, and it was presented by Matt Dillon and Sarah Jessica Parker. Waleed takes special pride and has a deep affection for this milestone production in his career. The play prospered from a six-month run, Off-Broadway at the Culture Project.In the midst of the run of Betrayed, Zuaiter managed to finesse his performance schedule to allow him to work with the talented playwright Naomi Wallace in the Public Theatre Lab production of her three one-act plays Fever Chart, under the direction of Jo Bonney. His performance was hailed by the critics.Waleed's other notable credits from Film and TV are, most recently (2009), co-starring in the all-star cast of The Men Who Stare At Goats, performing along-side George Clooney and Ewan McGregor, and directed by Grant Heslov. The film also stars Jeff Bridges and Kevin Spacey. Waleed attributes this to be "his break" into mainstream Hollywood films. He received notable mentions in select reviews that his performance and character depiction made a significant impact within the story.Waleed was featured in the DVD release of Tom McCarthy's The Visitor and was honored by McCarthy's commentary in the special features that he wanted to work with Waleed, a respected New York theatre actor. In a soon to be released film, Zuaiter makes an inspiring appearance as "the Lecturer" in the adaptation of Paulo Coelho's (The Alchemist) Veronika Decides To Die, directed by BAFTA Award-winner Emily Young. Zuaiter has guest starred on numerous TV shows, most recently in an episode of Lie To Me, and was directed by Spike Lee in a recurring role for an NBC pilot, M-O-N-Y.

Gerard ButlerBirth date: 13 November 1969, Paisley, Scotland, UKDescription: Gerard James Butler was born in Paisley, Scotland, to Margaret and Edward Butler, a bookmaker. His family is of Irish origin. Gerard spent some of his very early childhood in Montreal, Quebec, but was mostly raised, along with his older brother and sister, in his hometown of Paisley. His parents divorced when he was a child, and he and his siblings were raised primarily by their mother, who later remarried. He had no contact with his father between the ages of two and 16 years old, after which time they became close. His father passed away when Gerard was in his early 20s. Butler went on to attend Glasgow University, where he studied to be a lawyer/solicitor. He was president of the school's law society thanks to his outgoing personality and great social skills.His acting career began when he was approached in a London coffee shop by actor Steven Berkoff, who later appeared alongside Butler in Attila (2001), who gave him a role in a stage production of "Coriolanus". After that, Butler decided to give up law for acting. He was cast as Ewan McGregor's character "Renton" in the stage adaptation of Trainspotting. His film debut was as Billy Connolly's younger brother in Mrs Brown (1997). While filming the movie in Scotland, he was enjoying a picnic with his mother near the River Tay when they heard the shouts of a young boy, who had been swimming with a friend, who was in some trouble. Butler jumped in and saved the young boy from drowning. He received a Certificate of Bravery from the Royal Humane Society. He felt he only did what anyone in the situation would have done.His film career continued with small roles, first in the "James Bond" movie, Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), and then Russell Mulcahy's Tale of the Mummy (1998). In 2000, Butler was cast in two breakthrough roles, the first being "Attila the Hun" in the USA Network mini-series, Attila (2001). The film's producers wanted a known actor to play the part but kept coming back to Butler's screen tests and decided he was their man. He had to lose the thick Scottish accent, but managed well. Around the time "Attila" was being filmed, casting was in progress for Wes Craven's new take on the "Dracula" legacy. Also wanting a known name, Butler wasn't much of a consideration, but his unending tenacity drove him to hounding the producers. Eventually, he sent them a clip of his portrayal of "Attila". Evidently, they saw something because Dracula 2000 (2000) was cast in the form of Butler. Attila's producers, thinking that his big-screen role might help with their own film's ratings, finished shooting a little early so he could get to work on Dracula 2000 (2000). Following these two roles, Butler developed quite a fan base, an Internet site and began appearing on lists everywhere.Since then, he has appeared in Reign of Fire (2002) as "Creedy" and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003) as "Terry Sheridan", alongside Angelina Jolie. The role that garnered him the most attention from both moviegoers and movie makers, alike, was that of "Andre Marek" in the big-screen adaptation of Michael Crichton's novel, Timeline (2003). Butler played an archaeologist who was sent back in time with a team of students to rescue a colleague. Last year, he appeared in Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical, The Phantom of the Opera (2004), playing the title character in the successful adaptation of the stage musical. It was a role that brought him much international attention. Other projects include Dear Frankie (2004), The Game of Their Lives (2005) and Beowulf & Grendel (2005).In 2007, he starred as Spartan "King Leonidas" in the Warner Bros. production 300 (2006), based on the Frank Miller graphic novel, and Butterfly on a Wheel (2007), co-starring Pierce Brosnan and Maria Bello, which aired on network TV under the title, "Shattered". He most recently starred in P.S. I Love You (2007), with Academy Award-winner Hilary Swank.In 2007, he appeared in Nim's Island (2008) and RocknRolla (2008), and completed the new Mark Neveldine / Brian Taylor film, Gamer (2009).

For most of the 1980s, Freeman continued to contribute decent enough performances in films that fluctuated in their quality. However, he really stood out, scoring an Oscar nomination as a merciless hoodlum in Street Smart (1987) and, then, he dazzled audiences and pulled a second Oscar nomination in the film version of Driving Miss Daisy (1989) opposite Jessica Tandy.
