After escaping from capture, he becomes a man on the run and must evade his own agency and outsmart the FBI in order to find the real threat to the President. Desperate to uncover the truth, Banning turns to unlikely allies to help clear his name, keep his family from harm and save the country from imminent danger.

Went to see Angel has Fallen with my husband and 18-year-0ld daughter. We are fans of the first two movies, Olympus has Fallen and London has Fallen. We enjoyed the action element of Angel has Fallen but from a story standpoint it is the weakest of the three films.

The main premise that everyone believes Mike Bannon actually did the dirty deed is stupid if you've seen the other movies. The whole thing is on big action movie troupe so there are no surprises. You'll know who the bad guy is in the opening scene, that's one of the biggest action hero movie cliches there is. I think the creators knew this so they countered the poor story with even bigger explosions and adding Mike Bannon's quirky dad to the mix. Which was a smart move. While I rolled my eyes at the plot, I was enjoying the hell out of the action scenes, which have been stellar throughout the series, and found the dad funny. Especially the after-credit scene.

If you enjoy the realistic special effects in the Mike Bannon movies then this is one worth a matinee price.

My husband gives it 4 1/2 sheep cause he doesn't care about plot.

I give it 3.75 "peeing" Sheep

  1. Totally agree with the predictable story. The action, while I saw a lot of that coming too, was crazy fun over the top
