Angel Has Fallen (15)
1st September 2019
Review by James
This is the third instalment of Mike Branning (Gerrard
Butler) as a secret service agent tasked with the job of protecting the
president (Morgan Freeman).
Angel Has Fallen follows the same storyline as
before with a terrorist group looking to take out the president and with Mike
Branning saving the day. However, the plot did have some twists thrown in along
the way with Mike having to prove himself innocent whilst avoiding a manhunt
from his colleagues. One of my favourite parts of the film was the introduction
of Mike’s paranoid, no filter, C4 loving father (Nick Nolte). Their
relationship and conquests together certainly provided some comedic value to
this predictable journey. The cost of having some big names in the filmed
showed as the CGI budget unfortunately must have been ignored. This film was an
easy watch with enough action and comedy to keep you interested until the end.
