ANGEL HAS FALLEN (Theatrical Release USA 2019)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Angel Has Fallen—the best of the Fallen series movies—has improved storyline, acting quality, and action over the first two films: Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen. It still works as a B-grade film but has built into its storyline more human factor, like meeting Banning’s father, and provides several twists in its plot so that the true antagonist becomes difficult to identify. It’s great to see Morgan Freeman maintaining his presence throughout all three films in the series. He plays a formidable force in this film and shows amazing acting skill. This film requires attention to storyline and intellectual involvement to follow its twists and turns. It’s a good action watch.

Storyline

The Secret Service and FBI track an agent when he becomes implicated in an assassination attempt on the president.
