Up­heaval

Asian Journal - - Cinema Scene -

Stakes are high with the free world left hang­ing In The bal­ance in Lon­don Has Fallen. This smart fol­low-up to sur­prise hit Olym­pus Has Fallen of­fers more of the same. Ro­bust is the na­ture of this VVS film now ex­plod­ing on screen at Cine­plex Odeon ar­eas still left stand­ing across B.C. World lead­ers rely on se­cret ser­vice pro­tec­tion to safe­guard their lives. Ex mil­i­tary man Mike Ban­ning is one of the best in the busi­ness. Repris­ing his role in The ear­lier ver­sion, along­side many oth­ers, is Ger­ald But­ler (300). Left to pro­tect U.S. pres­i­dent Ben­jamin Asher on as­sign­ment in Lon­don things go from ad to worse in a hurry. On the run for his very life Aaron Eck­hard dis­plays con­sid­er­able fi­nesse as the leader of the free world try­ing to stay alive. With Lon­don in grid­lock and lock­down thanks to a mer­ci­less ter­ror­ist there seems to be no place to run for the sur­vivors of a hideously planned as­sault.
