The film starts with a high-tech assassination attempt on the American president (Morgen Freeman). The only other survivor is main character Mike Banning (Gerald Butler).
A not too surprising story unfolds in which Banning gets framed for the attack and he escapes in order to prove his innocence.
“Angel Has Fallen” is full of high-adrenaline action (sometimes a bit over-the-top) and has a good, dense atmosphere.
Not a high-flyer, but a good action thriller.
