When there is an assassination attempt on U.S. President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman), his trusted confidant, Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler), is wrongfully accused and taken into custody. 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.
Critic reviews for Angel Has Fallen
“When it comes to big-screen meat-and-potatoes action, Butler has carved out a nice niche for himself, and as solid as Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen were, this third installment is easily the best.”
“As an action-thriller with political intrigue, this movie does its job. It's Nolte who at times lifts it to another level.”
- The Australian
“Yes, it's all uber-violent, in-your-face, completely lacking sophistication – but I'll be damned if it's not entertaining.”
