Like with Olympus Has Fallen (2013) and London Has Fallen (2016), Morgan Freeman has openly admitted in interviews that he did this movie mainly for the money. As he explained for the previous two: "Money. It's the third in a series it pays better than the first one. I get to play the president again, I'm in a successful series, I'm working with a guy I really admire and like. It's perfect." When asked whether he still felt "fire in his belly" with regard to acting, he said: "I enjoy it, I still enjoy it. I love making movies, but it's more like smouldering embers now." See more »
An aide tells the Vice President that the transfer of power back to a president has never happened in our history. This is incorrect, on July 13, 1985 Ronald Reagan underwent colon cancer surgery while under anesthesia, Vice President George Bush discharged the powers and duties of the presidency during his incapacity, serving as acting president until later that day, when Reagan reclaimed his authority. President George W. Bush underwent a colonoscopy procedure on June 29, 2002, and again on July 21, 2007. Vice President Dick Cheney temporarily became acting president on both occasions then power was transferred back to Bush. See more »
How the fuck did you find me?
I run security for the president. How do you think? You've been here the last five years. North Carolina before that. Alaska before that.
You see, that's Big Brother for you.
No, actually, it was just me wondering if you were still alive.
Did you do it?
You'd like it if I did, wouldn't you... dad?

This Series Has Not Fallen
After looking at my list for this year, there really aren't that many straight forward action films made anymore. But Angel Has Fallen came at the perfect time, end of August/early September when there's not much else out in theaters, at least blockbuster movie wise. While not better than the first entry 'Olympus Has Fallen', it is certainly superior to 'London Has Fallen' from 2016, and it makes for a nice cap to the 'Has Fallen' trilogy. That is, if this is the end to the series. And look, there's a ceiling to Gerard Butler's acting talent, but he's more than serviceable in a role like this and last year's Den of Thieves. Oh and Nick Nolte? He's so dang good in this movie it feels like he's on an entirely different level than everyone else. I'm here for it.
