Angel Has Fallen (2019)

VERDICT – 3/5

 

 
PROS –
1) This time it’s a war-monger Vice President who got Agent Banning framed for the attempted assassination of the President. Its the routine high-octane action where Banning got to prove his innocence and meanwhile save the President too.
2) Nick Nolte joining the cast as Mike’s father. This John Rambo type Vietnam-vet Clay Banning is one interesting character. Him blowing the entire cavalcade of bad guys around his cabin was the best action sequence. His chemistry with Mike in the post-credit scene was equally funny.
3) The franchise is tediously formulaic but surely entertaining. The action is so engrossing that Piper Perabo replaced Radha Mitchell as Mike’s wife and we didn’t even notice.

 

 

CONS –
1) Jada Pinkett Smith as FBI Agent Thompson was extremely annoying. A meaty role was given to a bad actor.

Verdict – 1/5

 

Pros –
1) Tiffany Haddish as Dina – the only actor who made this shitty movie watchable.

Don’t worry, boo.I’m gonna put hands on them.I’m talking hot grits, extension cords, timberland boots. I’m gonna fuck up that bitch’s Instagram account.I’m gonna put two q-tips in his pee-pee hole, and I’m gonna walk him around. I’m gonna just wipe, just swipe in that thing and yank them out! And then I’m gonna stick my fingers up in his ass and tell him I’m checking his prostate, but really I’m gonna yank his balls out of the back of that motherfucker! And then I’m gonna put my fist so far up his ass, I’m gonna pull his heart out through that motherfucker, and I’m gonna “Kali ma shakti” that shit, just…Then I’m gonna stick my fingers back up in his ass, and then I’m gonna twirl them around and see if that make him giggle a little bit. Because I like to make a motherfucker laugh while I hurt him, you know what I’m saying?
