It's a throwback piece of entertainment, but in the way it evaporates as soon as it ends, it's also a throwaway. By the time it's over, it's already fallen from your memory.
August 26, 2019
The franchise has fallen and it can't get up.
August 23, 2019
The product of a vague and unconvincing plot, the violence here is simply and purely awful.
August 22, 2019
Angel Has Fallen feels like it was cobbled together with cliched action scenes and circumstances overused by the once-popular TV series 24.
August 22, 2019
There's no thrill to this thriller. Nor is there nuance to the characters.
August 22, 2019
If this type of no-brow entertainment is your thing, you may find something to like in Angel Has Fallen but that doesn't mean you need what these guys are reselling.
August 22, 2019
"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.
August 22, 2019
It might still be passable for cable, but this series has sadly fallen into unwatchable territory.
August 22, 2019
"The Fugitive," to which "Angel" owes perhaps even its rooftop finale, is a template against which this movie inevitably falls short.

Butler can do more, but he's so good at doing this one thing that it has become his brand. That might be a blessing or a curse, but if it's a curse, there are worse curses.
August 22, 2019
It is a doom-invoking, cathartic and strangely satisfying head-trip that's also a bit ridiculous.
August 21, 2019
Is "Angel Has Fallen" the kind of thing you'll remember in a year? Probably not, but it will keep you entertained for a couple of hours on an August night, and that's all it's aiming for. Mission accomplished.
August 21, 2019
While Angel offers up a few potentially memorable set pieces...they all fall victim to having too much repetitive editing and not enough kinetic energy...
August 21, 2019
It's not Bond. But all the better for it.
August 21, 2019
It brings a mediocre series to a fittingly mediocre close.
August 21, 2019
[Nick Nolte] can still summon up the enthusiasm to pump some much needed pep into the dialogue. Butler, who's also looking very tired, perks up considerably once they begin to banter.
August 21, 2019
Operates on such a level of half-considered logic and improbable motivations that even moderately well-mounted action can't distract audiences from how dumb it is.
August 21, 2019
Most action flicks would settle for thrilling violence and mayhem, in service of a utilitarian plot. "Angel" flips this formula on its head, delivering a surprisingly coherent story but with no discernible sense of fun.
August 21, 2019
As staged by director Ric Roman Waugh, the film's hand-to-hand combat is so routine it's deadening - and, for that matter, so is its assault-rifle-to-assault-rifle combat.
August 21, 2019
As with many of [Butler's] recent projects, it's been compiled with minimal quality control, insistently cancelling out its better ideas with turns for the derivative.
