A bit predictable.

I think it's the weakest of the three so far but still enjoyable.

Action packed thriller that tops the previous films.

The movie was so predictable and it was just boring...

His chemistry with Butler was part of what made the first two so entertaining.

I find this movie very entertaining, the action pack is solid and well performed.

Enjoyable if you go for what you expect.

I enjoyed it.

The film is just over 2 hours and it really feels it at points, there are several bland dialogue sequences and honestly no one cares about these characters enough to focus on family and dramatic sequences.

Predictable with bad camera angles and shaky filming .

Also some of it was very predictable.

The movie is also ludicrously predictable.

Overall, very entertaining.

Action packed and Emotive.

Gerard Butler displays a powerful performance in this action packed movie!

Action Packed Amazing 4DX.

Headaches and insomnia plague him.

The hand-to-hand fights were slower and less fun to watch, and just about all of the action was filmed with shaky cameras and chopped-up footage.

Personally I was pretty impressed by this movie, it had a gripping storyline which was fuelled by consistent action.

It's enjoyable as long as your in the mood for that kind of movie.

This is how this film comes across as familiar and predictable, because you will see most twists and turns coming beforehand.

The explosions around Clay (Nolte) cabin create a very intense (and somewhat funny) sequence.

Great action packed movie, with some twists here and there.

It was kind of predictable, but I enjoyed it regardless.

DEFinitely enjoyable if you like this kind of movie, as a rental.

With a best start and boring end .

Tonight we look at:Movie: Angel Has Fallen (2019) Director: Ric Roman Waugh Writers: Robert Mark Kamen (screenplay by), Matt Cook (screenplay by) Stars: Gerard Butler, Piper Perabo, Morgan FreemanLIKES: Constantly Moving Gets the Intensity Starting Nice Use Of Characters The Ending Battle Nick NolteDISLIKES: Predictable Loud Mystery Lacking Not As Much Exciting Acting Morgan Freeman's Character Semi LackingSummary:Like its predecessors, Angel Has Fallen is back in the habit of making a story that is all about moving from danger site to danger site.

Its fast paced and different and far better than the first two films.

Truly enjoyable movie if you're fan of Butler.

The action scenes were captivating and kept me immersed in the movie.

It was far to predictable.

While they were great action packed films in themselves, this one I liked in particular because Nick was going rouge & the framed-for-a-crime theme was strong!

Extremely predictable, bad CGI effects....

I found this one more engaging than the last 2 entries.

While the action is a little less than before the film does have a few action scene that was good, the flow of the pacing is solid, while some moments do tend to drag a little, but the film as a whole is worth watching if you're a fan of these films.

Lots of action, entertaining, funny, and more realistic than most now days...

Mind blowing intensity and excellent conspiracy filled mash up!

I was able to guess the villains pretty easily, but it was still an entertaining action movie.

While it's a less unpleasant experience than its also terrible predecessors, it trades that unpleasantness for being woefully dull.

The scenes are repetitive and plain boring with a storyline a child could have written.

The film had much more very tense scenes that kept you on the edge of your seat.

The plot is forgettable and predictable.

Still enjoyable entertainment, and it was nice to see the stunning Piper Perabo and it was great to see Nick Nolte back on the big screen, who was the highlight for me in this film.

The first movie was poorly lit and confusing.

Action packed .

Going into the movie I was expecting intense action sequences and they delivered.

Angel is boring .

The movements altogether were slow to reality and highly unlikely that the gunmen are going to shy away, if they're truly believing Mike is a problem.

Everything that happens in this movie is either a cliche you've seen many times before or plainly telegraphed.

Fast paced.

This is hands down the best film in the trilogy and one of the most entertaining action films of the year.

Action packed .

Action packed entertainment .

The villains follow just about every action movie cliché there is.

You just go with a buddy to give you mind a vacation and see how well Americans do with remarkable CGI and stunning cinematography, Sometimes that's enough.

So if the cast doesn't add up, the story fails to keep the audience from boredom and the dialogue and action is only there mostly without any meaning, you know this is bad.

Entertaining .

Action packed good plot .

The start is predictable and slow, and then it deteriorates.

While the movie itself was entertaining as a popcorn movie, there were waaaayyy too many F words in it.

Despite a stellar cast of familiar faces and lots of high-octane explosions and shootouts that punctuate the plot, this tolerably entertaining entry ranks as the more formulaic, springing fewer surprises than its predecessors, and lacking a shred of old-fashioned fun.

Very exciting!

Loved all the action and the thrilling peices as well.

Highly recommend it!

This movie is full of predictable plots and scripts.

Very enjoyable and exciting - sometimes older is better .

If you like entertaining action movies then you'll enjoy this.

Also, it's a bad action movie and the characters are pretentious.

It's an amazing action film and thoroughly entertaining.

There is nothing new to watch, no creativity, and honestly boring.

Lots of action, lots of explosions and a few unexpected twists and turns.

It made this movie absolutely unwatchable.

predictable and boring, ugly face shots .

Predictable, forgettable - but enjoyable .

I enjoyed it.

Predictable but entertaining .

The carefree tone of this film works wonderfully as it makes the action sequences more engaging and the serious 'character development' moments more poignant.

Predictable and unoriginal .

His intense and absolutely thrilling performance in Den Of Thieves brought what you wanted out of Gerard, but instead a boring and shallow character with little motivations to even be present in these conflicts is what you get from Angel Has Fallen.

Too simple and predictable plot.

Intense, Immersive, and Funny .

So the movie was entertaining and it was an easy watch with a good combination of seriousness and comic relief.

Good effort all round, I enjoyed it from start to finish.

In a summer of many films Over Promising and Under-Delivering: "Angel Has Fallen" is a refreshing exception as it was an enjoyable thrill ride from start to finish and I sure hope we have not seen the last of Agent Banning.

Yet another mass produced Hollywood action flick with a boringly predictable plot (I use the term lightly).

Decent action but very generic and predictable plot like nowadays typical Hollywood plot action genre.

Olympus Has Fallen was a great watch and I loved the narrative, but now it just feels tiresome.

I really enjoyed it.

Look, I know the first 2 movies were never going to win awards, but they were entertaining.

Angel Has Fallen delivers an explosive action packed conclusion to the Fallen series.

Predictable and fake .

Overall I think of the three movie es this one was my favorite, I was surprised how much I enjoyed it.

Virtually every scene - even slow static scenes- were done with a super zoomed in, constantly panning and focusing handled cameras.

🎶Enjoyable movie...

but still enjoyable for the action AND...

The story was very predictable since the beginning.

It's mind blowing to the see the amazing reviews for Hobbs and Shaw and already hate for this one.

While no masterpiece, I thought the film was entertaining.

It was not excellent, but it was enjoyable.

Definitely, one of the films that you leave the brain outside the theatre and enjoy the film for what it is with its action packed direction.

Well-known but entertaining third Has Fallen film .

The second movie was boring and repetitive with its action.

A bit cliche.

Some of the twists are also predictable.

We see there's some cliché distance between them but some predictable (and even more cliché) reconciliation at the end.

So boring, so lame, so uninspired

But the plot was (very) predictable unfortunately.

Overall I had a really good evening the movie was very entertaining and we had some solid and memorable performances.

Great action packed movie that kept me entertained throughout.

Sure, there were a scene or two that might not be completely plausible IRL but overall, this movie had me on the edge of my seat the entire time.

Amazing add on to action packed franchise .

Third opus of the Banning saga based on a predictable script and caricatural characters.

Very bad, old story, very very bad direction, boring acting, there was bno surprise because we allready know that movie.

It's a film filled with bad elements such as a formulaic script, loud and badly filmed action sequences and uninteresting characters.

There is more to the story with its predictable twist with the villain.

I've never seen a 4DX movie before this I was surprised by the flashes, seat moving, and mist plus the action was so much more intense than usual like the gun shots felt close by and I'm terrified of roller coasters so this was unique.

"Angel Has Fallen" is fun but overall predictable.

Overall, a very entertaining action thriller.

Still enjoyed it though

Waste of time .

Just when you think they have run out of ideas for action movies, this exciting and inventive thriller comes along.

I am not going into the terrible cgi and ridiculous stunt double covering, or the easily predictable storyline.

Despite a few things they could of worked on this was a extremely entertaining film which offered a change in plot and tone.

Fun action packed movie .

It delivers exactly what you expect; non-stop action, plenty of (predictable) twists, and a surprising amount of humour that evaded the previous two instalments.

As usual, this movie keeps engaging right from the start to the end.

This one had intense action and possibly a finish to the series.

This is an intense, action packed, adrenaline fuelled film that keeps you entertained film the beginning to the end.

Overall despite being painfully predictable.

One of the worst movies i have ever seen .

Kept me on the edge of my seat.

It's an entertaining action film with not that great of a story.

Next like the previous instalments the action was fantastic and very entertaining to watch.

It was entirely predictable that the two protagonists would end up alone having a hand-to-hand fight.

Banning is suffering from migraines and insomnia with regular visits to several doctors, he hides this fact, and starts taking medication for the pain.

Also it has the most utterly pointless, unfunny and random mid-credit sequence I've ever seen put to film.

Good fun if a little predictable .

As ive said the story is a little weaker than the original two films, this is because the set up of mike banning is way too predictable and find out who it is setting him up cames way to fast in this film.

Anyway, "Angel" is a decidedly different type of film than the two that came before it, and I enjoyed it all the more for it.

The action is sure as well is entertaining and exciting.

All in all, the plot was full of holes that made it boring and unbelievable, in the worst of meanings.

Most boring most predictable movie i ve seen in a while .

If you haven't seen Warrior, you are missing a surprisingly intense and emotional story.

The plot was predictable and the ending wasn't surprising at all for even a novice movies goer.

Despite the usual, there are still some entertaining action moments in the film.

Small jokes make the movie even more enjoyable, and the dramatic scenes are quite fulfilling.

The way this should have been done was having the very person that set him up a mystery and hidden from the audience until the third act, this would have kept the audience on the edge of their seat wonder who it was setting him up would have kept the film interesting.

It has a few typical action movie tropes, but enough twists and action to keep it entertaining.

Angel Has Fallen is a great end to the trilogy, an action packed, fast paced and extremely enjoyable action thriller.

An entertaining sequel, great action and suspence.

However its follow 'London Has Fallen' was rubbish, a bland, lower budget messily cut and shot film which somehow made more money than it predecessor, which is why we now have 'Angel Has Fallen'.

Most predictable "twists" you'll ever see in a major blockbuster.

7/10 - deviating away from the tired formula utilized for the first two makes this one all the more enjoyable and worth watching

Overall entertaining, but strongly predictable, lame storyline and nothing new.

The most enjoyable of the trilogy .

This movie is a generic boring action flick with zero surprises and no depth what so ever.

Unwatchable due to the handheld cameras .

But, it has some redeeming qualities: Morgan Freeman, Nick Nolte, Gerard Butler and Tim Blake Nelson are enjoyable to watch, several action scenes are notable (the drones are intriguing, and watching Nick Nolte 'defend' his homestead is delightful).

This part can be more slow to judge him.

I found the film to be slow at first and then jam packed with action and contemplation.

It is incredibly predictable who they end up being, and their motivations are your stereotypical action movie villain motivations: one wants power, the other money.

Action Packed .

Banning leads Trumbull to safety with help from Gentry and other agents as Jennings blows up the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital.

Gerard Butler barks nearly all of his lines like pretty much every role he plays, but even he's starting to look especially bored and unenthused this time.

Reminds me a lot of movies like Skyscraper with Dwayne Johnson: good production and likable and solid actors but a terrible boring story - like some other reviewers stated, you watched this movie many times and better made.

Predictable and not very intense .....

Just the way we like Gerald Butler, worth watching at the theater , action explosions and fun.

predictable/cliched...

Action packed - great storyline with entertaining twist - Butler, Freeman, and Nolte - they knocked it out of the ball park with this third movie of the series - Nolte and Butler fighting bad guys - had the whole theater cheering and laughing out load at the same time

The writing got lazy with a 5th grader predictable plot that's been done many times before.

There is some entertaining action at points.

It's a nuts and bolts action film, entertaining enough and worth your time.

The plot is forgettable and the twist is predictable.

Only Mike Banning (Gerald Butler) with compressed discs, insomnia, and on pain killers can save him, except he is being framed as the man who attempted to kill Trumbull (Morgan Freeman) and is America's most wanted.

It seems that this film toned back on the action in an attempt to give us a little more story and mystery, which is a shame as I wanted the adrenaline fest these films are.

There are plenty of action to make this film worth watching on the big screen.

This is a great fun action packed movie, that's worth a watch for sure!

Propaganda .

" President Trumbull (Morgan Freeman)Angel Has Fallen, since 2013 the third in the Fallen franchise starring Gerard Butler, is 2 hours of thriller clichés and stereotypes that manage to be entertaining and occasionally profound (See the opening quote).

Therefore a bit predictable.

There was about 20min left and I just walked out.

Nick Nolte is clearly having a blast as Father Banning , his character is completely ridiculous but also has the most entertaining sequence in the film.

Movie started slow for about 15 mins.

Exciting .

He is considerably slower (and even a little heavier) than when we last saw him, and this affects the action a little bit.

Quite Possibly the Worst Movie I've Ever Seen .

Didn't care for the characters, predictable plot, scenarios that make no sense if you start thinking, ok action, and the first movie with enough shaky cam in a sequence where I had no idea what was going on.

It is overly predictable down to the final mano-a-mano episode.

The direction is action packed throughout and definitely keeps you on the edge of the seat with the intense gun shoot outs.

The film was predictable and I just didn't care for it all.

(Fight scenes in recent films have felt a little overdone to the point of getting boring - not the case here).

Really enjoyed it.

The third Fallen installment is worth watching with full of suspense and gripping storyline after Secret Service Agent Mike Banning gets framed for an attempt to assasinate President Trumbull.

Most intense scene actually is the killing scene at the hospital!

His previous fights are finally catching up to him and he is having to medicate himself to prevent insomnia and headaches.
