“We’re lions,” says Wade Jennings (Danny Huston) to his friend Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) during the surprisingly reflective first act of Angel Has Fallen. We’ve met Banning before in the two previous installments of this series, Olympus Has Fallen (2013) and London Has Fallen (2016), while Jennings is a new addition to the cast we're meant to instantly be invested in. Apparently he and Banning served together in Iraq before the latter became a longstanding Secret Service agent (Jennings runs a private military contracting firm). Both men are getting older and neither is quite ready to accept that they may no longer be physically or mentally equipped for battle. But Banning also isn't ready to settle into the desk job that's being offered to him as Director of the Secret Service.
