Angel Has Fallen

Critics Consensus

Cut from the same rough cloth as its predecessors, Angel Has Fallen rounds out a mostly forgettable action trilogy in fittingly mediocre fashion.

Audience Reviews for Angel Has Fallen

  • May 16, 2020
    The third entry in the series, Angel Has Fallen is a rather formulaic action film. When Secret Service agent Mike Banning is framed for an attack on the president he's forced to go off the grid and attempts to discover who's behind the attack. Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman return to reprise their roles, and are joined by Piper Perabo, Danny Huston, and Nick Nolte. The plot is pretty by-the-numbers, going through all the standard tropes and clichés of a manhunt and conspiracy. Still, the action scenes are incredibly intense and exciting. Angel Has Fallen isn't as good as the previous films, but it's entertaining and delivers plenty of thrills.

    When we think of iconic action heroes, the names that come to mind are John McLain, Rambo, or Jack Bauer, but what about Mike Banning? For a third time, Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) has proven himself to be the only thing standing between the U.S. President and assassination, only this time, he's also a target. In the third installment of the fallen series, Mike Banning saves the president from a drone attack, only to wake up in the hospital to find himself under arrest, accused of planning the whole thing. Now Banning must escape and find out who set him up, before they get to him and finish the job they tried to pin on him. Unlike most trilogies, every single one of these films is terrific, and despite different writers and directors, it has never lost it's edge. In choosing a favorite however, I picked this one, because it was so much different than the rest. Not only is Banning on the other side and in the position of trying to save himself as well as the President, but they bring his family into the story. We finally meet his estranged father, played masterfully by Nick Nolte. A paranoid former veteran living in the woods, the elder Banning is an absolute riot and brings much needed levity to a series that already given us so much. People will look at this and say it's just another action movie, just another attempt by Hollywood to continue to cash in on a successful movie, and normally I'd agree, but not this time. Angel Has Fallen not only features the new face of action films, but it also offers edge of your seat action, a compelling and dramatic story, as well as a little bit of humor, all things that you're normally hard pressed to find in just another action film. That's why we're labeling this one a must see movie!

    Better than London Has Fallen at least. Seems like it's stealing most of its ideas from better franchises, most notably Bourne and Punisher, but it was still a pretty good time. And nice to see the script sort of flipped after the last two, and have Butler facing up against the Secret Service (even if the reason why is made painfully obvious from the opening sequence).

    You honestly can't trust anyone in this franchise. The interesting part of this series is that it hasn't hit fatigue, but where can they honestly go from here? The key is to leave your brain at the door when it comes to this style of film. The other films are successful because they don't attempt to be more. You know the players from the very beginning. This is not a twisty narrative, it's a standard action film from the playbook. I enjoyed this film a little more than the previous film. I must say, another sequel wouldn't be the worst idea from Hollywood. This is a guilty pleasure action film dialled up to 11. There be more action films like this as there clearly is a market for adult styled action films. In this current market, it's refreshing to see a film that Stallone might've made in the 80s. 17/11/2019
