It was okay as a sequel but it didn’t quite live up to the first one. Tommy Lee Jones was excellent, really stole quite a lot of the scenes and it was disappointing he didn’t have anyone as good as Harrison Ford to play off. The story wasn’t as good, too complicated, and by the end, when the adorable one got shot, I just checked out, really.

We’ve had a sort of love/hate relationship with these ‘Has Fallen’ movies, because they’ve not been very good but they are completely entertaining so it’s not the end of the world. I’m not sure we would have gotten around to this one if we weren’t looking for something particularly action-heavy and thinking-light.

I used to be a big fan of horror movies but more recently have gone off them somewhat - I don’t think this is out and out horror but it’s certainly not something I would have chosen to watch if it wasn’t for wanting to support the early release dates. I’m glad I did end up watching it though, because it was interesting.

This was so good! I’ve never heard of the TV show or the film but I obviously know Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones and they were both excellent. I loved that everyone in this was good at their jobs and doing some great work but still managing to just miss each other. There weren’t any rubbish cops or anything like that.

I love the book, I’ve read it a couple of times and the film picks out the best of the tension and the most important of the plot developments to generate a tension-filled two hours. From the very start, there’s a general feeling of inevitable dread that doesn’t let up until that explosion at the end.
