    • Excerpt: The word is carnage.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: A reasonably enjoyable throwback actioner that works mainly because Gerard Butler is a reliable lead.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: A sad retread of The Fugitive. Dumb, pointless, confused, full of contempt for its audience, and laughably unable to convince us that Gerard Butler is an acceptable stand-in for Harrison Ford.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: The script is really trying to say something about corporations benefiting from conflict and political warhawks feeling more comfortable fighting than searching for peace, but it has no idea what to do with any of it.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: This could have been something memorable, something spectacularly ridiculous, but instead what we get is just okay.
  • Nell Minow @
    • Excerpt: Director Ric Roman Waugh is a former stunt man and stunt coordinator and his staging of the intense scenes of conflict and action is assured and exciting. In addition to the drone attack (filmed by drone cameras), the battle in a building during the movie’s climax is pure testosteronic cinema. I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Mike Banning — the only question is what or who will be the next to fall.

    • Excerpt: Angel Has Fallen’ plays out exactly as you would expect from a potboiler of this type. No surprises here, other than that it exists at all. But, no doubt, it’s fun and entertaining.
