Angel Has Fallen

Angel Has Fallen

The third instalment of the Has Fallen action thriller franchise, directed by Ric Roman Waugh. Gerard Butler returns as Mike Banning, the no-nonsense US Secret Service agent with a handy knack for saving world leaders’ lives. And he wastes no time in demonstrating his old trick this time out either, rescuing the President (Morgan Freeman) from a deadly drone ambush. That makes him a hero, right? Not quite. The President falls into a coma, and FBI agent Helen Thompson (Jada Pinkett Smith) receives some false intelligence implicating Banning in the attack. He’s sent to a detention facility, but manages to escape en route after the vehicle transporting him is attacked. Cue a nationwide manhunt packed with car chases and flying bullets as Banning goes on the run, determined to clear his name – and find out who it really is that’s trying to kill the President. Also starring Lance Reddick, Tim Blake Nelson and Nick Nolte.
