Angel Has Fallen review – on the run from the Russians

’In 2013 Angel Has Fallen, North Korea was America opponent; its Islamophobic 2016 follow-up, London Has Fallen, took umbrage with Muslim terrorists via Pakistan. This time, the unsavory franchise targets Russia. Or rather, it is targeted by Russia, who have framed Gerard Butler’s Secret Service representative Mike Banning for an assassination attempt on President Trumbull (Morgan Freeman, pleasingly governmental). On a fishing trip with Trumball, a swarm of drones geared up with facial acknowledgment software eliminates all of the representatives bar Banning. And when the FBI find $10m in an overseas account under his name, he s required to go on the run.

The movie thinks of Banning and his partner, Leah (Piper Perabo), as victims, which is to say that the American worths they represent –-- valour, honesty, standard gender roles and national pride –-- are portrayed as under danger. Butler is convincingly durable as Banning, however the film’& rsquo; s politics are unstable. Bannings separated father, Clay (Nick Nolte), is a broken Vietnam veteran who teaches his kid about the futility of war before triggering a wall of home-rigged explosions. There is something odd about the way the film condemns bloodshed while savoring trigger-happy violence.
