Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that London Has Fallen is the sequel to 2013's Olympus Has Fallen. Like the first movie, it features tons of violence; many real-life landmarks are depicted being destroyed, and countless innocent bystanders are killed. The good guy shoots, stabs, and kills many bad guys with no consequence or remorse. Viewers will see gruesome deaths and plenty of blood, as well as explosions. Language is also strong, with many uses of "f--k," "s--t," and more. Substance use and sex aren't really issues. Amid the violent mayhem are messages about patriotism and doing something vs. doing nothing.

Large-scale violence, with disturbing images of London landmarks being destroyed, as well as countless innocent victims being killed. Lots of shooting (all kinds of guns and high-powered rifles) and killing, blood and dead bodies. Many exploding buildings and cars. A man is smashed against a concrete wall at high speed. A woman is stabbed through the chest with bloody metal shrapnel. Heat-seeking missiles are shot at helicopters. Much stabbing and slicing with knives; one knife goes through an eye. Punching and beating. Threatening with a machete.
Many uses of "f--k," plus "s--t," "balls," "son of a bitch," "goddamn," "hell," "Jesus" (as an exclamation).
Amid the violence and mayhem is a message about patriotism. And a speech at the end of the movie raises thought-provoking questions: Is it better to get involved with world affairs or do nothing? Which is wiser? Which is safer? Which will result in positive change? How many kinds of options are there?
