Did You Know?


At the time the film was released, many people wondered about Aaron Eckhart's Benjamin Asher character (as he had been a main character for the previous two installments). There is no mention made nor even any evidence that he was a past President. The makers of the film defended that every new action installment has to work well as a "standalone" (like James Bond 007 films) without much mention of what previously happened. See more »


There should be an apostrophe in St Matthew's. It's believable that an American scriptwriter who came up with this rubbish would not know that, but thankfully it's still just about stretching credibility that a news channel would get it wrong. See more »


Leah Banning: Mike said you grew up in England?
Wade Jennings: Uh, yeah, I did. Yeah, my father was an expat. I, uh... I never really felt I belonged anywhere. But when I moved to the States after school, I-I joined the Army.
Leah Banning: And how long did you guys serve together?
Mike Banning: Uh, I got into Third Batt right after you. So, what, about three, four years?
Wade Jennings: That sounds about right. Yeah.
Leah Banning: Mike never tells me stories about his Army days.
Wade Jennings: Yeah, well, most of us don't. It's just our way, I guess. But, uh, hey, if you... if you wanna hear a story....

Angel Has Risen
16 September 2019 | by meshborg68See all my reviews

May i first say im not really a fan of Butler or this film series but i was shocked and surprised to see a really good action movie thriller and cant really understand the negative reviews.I found nothing wrong with camera angles or C.G.I.Its fast paced and different and far better than the first two films.
