The horizontal stabilizer on the UH-60 Blackhawk deflects down at low air speeds so the rotor downwash doesn't push down too much, pushing the tail down at low speeds. In all of the low speed and hover scenes, the three Marine One UH-60 helicopters have horizontal stabilizers fixed in the horizontal position, which means they are all CG helicopters. See more »
If you liked Olympus Has Fallen, you'll like this better
So the trailer made me want to see this movie and I didn't see Olympus Has Fallen at that time. So I watched that yesterday and I liked it, fun action movie with some noticeable flaws.
Today I went to see London Has Fallen and I liked it better than the first one. The action scenes were a bit better than the first and more intense, the lighting and cinematography improved quite a bit compared to Olympus and the scale was bigger.
To get a little more in depth on certain matters that I liked: Gerard Butler is made for this role, he makes for a very likable action hero that gets the job done. He did that in Olympus and now in this one he did it a bit better I think.
The rest of the actors also do a good job, nothing really great but I got why everyone of them had a motivation to be there.
As I said the action was better than the first and with that I mean there is a good build up and when it starts I was invested in the scenes and wanted Gerard Butler to kick ass.
There are some issues with it though. In Olympus Has Fallen and the trailer for this movie I already saw that the CGI was really bad. Some explosions look really fake and it's weird that they didn't put more effort into making that look better.
Also this movie, like Olympus, is very patriotic. I think Americans will like the movie more than the rest of the world. I didn't mind it too much (I'm Dutch) but other people might find it somewhat annoying. What is a bit weird though is that they casted a Scot (Butler) to play an American. And the guy just doesn't have a good American accent which is just a bit weird.
Also some other technical elements like editing, sound etc. were quite poor during parts of the movie but I didn't mind it that much.
So all in all it's a dumb fun action movie and I'd recommend watching it, 7/10.
