LONDON HAS FALLEN is an action thriller about a US Presidential Protection Officer fighting terrorists who attack London, where world leaders are attending the British Prime Minister's funeral.

Violence

There are several scenes of violence, many of which feature people being shot or stabbed, often accompanied by brief blood spurts or injury detail. In one scene a knife is twisted in a man's wound; however, the scene is dark and injury detail is limited. There are also some fight scenes, including one in which a man's face is repeatedly punched.

Threat

In one scene, a terrorist threatens to decapitate a man with a machete whilst broadcasting the event live on air. However, the threat is never carried out.

Injury detail

There is a scene in which a woman is impaled through the stomach with a piece of metal, following a helicopter explosion. Although there is some blood around the wound, injury detail is limited.

Language

There is frequent strong language ('f**k'), as well as some milder bad language (eg 'son of a bitch', 'bastard', 'asshole', 'ass', 'shit', 'bloody', 'Christ', 'hell', 'goddamn').
