When there is an assassination attempt on U.S. President Allan Trumbull, his trusted confidant, Secret Service Agent Mike Banning, is wrongfully accused and taken into custody.

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.
Action Drama Thriller - Like the previous two films, this is a violent action-adventure film starring Gerard Butler. The only other returning star is Morgan Freeman, whose presence is limited. Constant language and brutal violence make the film too intense for kids.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average ...feels like it was cobbled together with cliched action scenes and circumstances overused by the once-popular TV series 24. Changing the movie's tone to make it more lighthearted might have resulted in a fun two hours. As it is, it's the kind of slog that encourages much eye-rolling.
Roger EbertFull Review Poor ...sleepy, dopey action bonanza "Angel Has Fallen” is disappointing, and not just for the reasons you might expect. I couldn't wait to stop watching "Angel Has Fallen,” an indifferently assembled cash-in shot with way too many shaky, unfocused close-ups...
Slant MagazineFull Review Below Average The film seems to have cobbled its set pieces together from a series of close-ups edited as if by random selection. Combined with the abysmal shot continuity that regularly defies coherence, it's impossible to tell what's happening during any given skirmish.
The GuardianFull Review Below Average As with many of the star's recent projects, it's been compiled with minimal quality control, insistently cancelling out its better ideas with turns for the derivative. The budget stumps up decent pyrotechnics but sloppy green-screen work

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 86 moviegoers:
FANTASTIC REVIEWS! The "so called" professional movie critics certainly got this one wrong! Most rated it "average" to "poor." It's clear that moviegoers of all ages, both males and females, LOVED "ANGEL HAS FALLEN." I highly recommend that you try to see it at a movie theater. It has some nice special effects best experienced on the big screen.
