In the sequel to the 2013 Olympus Has Fallen staring Gerard Butler (Secret Service Agent Mike Banning), Aaron Eckart ( President Benjamin Asher), and Morgan Freeman (VP Trumbull). These main characters have to save the life of the president of the united states.
In the beginning of this film it starts off with a casual kind of feel to the movie. But then jumps in the action. When an incident occurs in the UK which takes the 2 main characters Gerard Butler, and Aaron Eckhart to London where they are to attend a funeral for the Prime Minister. But they were not the only attendees. There were other world leaders there for the funeral as well. The delegates were all set to arrive at a funeral location when suddenly most of the delegation was attacked and killed by various methods.
I have to say that the President has one bad ass bodyguard. Not only does he manage to protect him but he saves his live a numerous times with the help of some friends. Morgan Freeman’s (VP Trumbull) plays his role as the man in charge again. manages to send a message to Mike Banning, the message was received by an Mi6 agent that Mike knows. The message was identified by a unique authentication that only Mike and VP Trumbull could recognize.
This film is packed with alot of action and some comical moments. The visual effects are pretty good.
