Actually, it's the best Die Hard film since Olympus Has Fallen because, well, it is.
Nobody said Olympus Has Fallen was going to be a thought-provoking exegesis on the volatile nature of geopolitics with respect to how America is viewed overseas. No, it was Gerard Butler in the White House acting like early '90s Bruce Willis and stabbing people in the neck.
And we f**ing loved it. It had no pretentious notions about itself, it didn't make a lick of sense and it was just straight-up enjoyable. So, with that in mind, we're fully expecting London Has Fallen to be what Die Hard 2 was to Die Hard - a good sequel that takes certain elements from the original and stretches them about ever-so-slightly.
Keep in mind, we really enjoyed Die Hard 2: Die Harder so take that into consideration, too. Y'know the General dude from Die Hard 2? He was in Django Unchained as the guy who made Jamie Foxx spell out his name. He's married to Vanessa Redgrave too, y'know.
What were we talking about? Oh right, London Has Fallen. It's out in Irish cinemas on March 4th, 2016.
