Because, I guess, SOMEONE demanded it, Gerard Butler is back as that security guy who frat bros around with the President (Aaron Eckhart) from Olympus Has Fallen. This time the two have to go to London for the funeral of the Prime Minister when a terrorist group takes out all the other leaders of the world there and only Eckhart and his broham are still alive. With a race across the city for survival as it blows to pieces, the USA must remain TRIUMPHANT!

*sigh*


So Chris says, “Worst movie so far this year.”


JC says, “It’s pretty terrible but I had fun.”


Elliott says, “Aw man, I loved it.”


Yeah, it’s gonna be that kind of review.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
  • Now to be fair only 36% of Republican voters support Trump, though that’s 36 points too high

    Yes… portraying the people that do this… http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/world/rest-of-world/2000-killed-in-Nigeria-but-world-failed-to-react/articleshow/45844273.cms
    as villains in fiction is racist… totally.
    The movie wasn’t saying Muslims are bad and evil, it was saying THESE Muslims are bad and evil.

    • Ryan Naughton

      And your point is?

      • mythic

        That there is nothing fucking racist or offensive about using Muslim/Islamic Terrorist as the villains in entertainment.

        • birdy the critic

          the problem isn’t that some are used as terrorists. the problem is that there is no counterpoint in the movie. ALL of the brown people in this movie are bad…and that is kinda offensive because it is playing on racial paranoia of the American film audience for cheap tension. It’s irresponsible and lazy. We’re trying to not treat Muslims like they’re all terrorists in the US. THIS kind of thing isn’t helping.

      You know what’s worse than injecting politics into a movie? A “critic” who does the same in her review.
