Did You Know?


Though the previous two installments had several characters be identified by their government positions in the on-screen texts. It never happens in this statement. See more »


During the assault on the president at the hospital, one of Salient's men is carrying an AK, which doesn't make sense since magazine compatibility of the team would be an issue. Also the operative fires the AK in auto mode, but the safety is in the lowest position which would be semi-automatic. Automatic is the middle position on an AK safety. See more »


Agent Thompson: Mr. Jennings, I'm Helen Thompson. I don't think we've ever had the privilege.
Wade Jennings: I wouldn't call it a privilege. Agent Thompson's the reason we're fighting our wars with one hand tied to our dicks.
Agent Thompson: So I guess you know why we're here.
Wade Jennings: Well, you said it was a matter of national security.
Agent Thompson: Yeah. When was the last time you spoke to Mike Banning?
Wade Jennings: Well, if you're doing your job, you'd know the answer to that.
Agent Thompson: Oh, I do. Let's see if we've come up with the same answer.

Angel Has Fallen
11 March 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

This is a good film, but they definitely shouldn't make anymore, as much as I like seeing the "president's guardian angel" on screen again it is definitely being milked now. In my opinion these have gotten progressively worse since Olympus Has Fallen and should stop where they are before it turns into a bad film franchise. But except for that it is a good showing of action and lives up to the story of the last 2 films. A solid recommendation from me.
