| Film Synopsis |

Things have been winding down for Agent Mike Banning since the London attacks. But during a fishing retreat, a devastating assassination attempt leaves multiple casualties and the president in a coma with Banning the only likely suspect. This time, Agent Banning goes on the run to clear his name and discover the truth behind the calculated attack.

| Video |

Angel Has Fallen is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of VVS Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.39:1.  Sharpness worked fine, as the film seemed accurate and well-defined. Blacks came across nicely, as dark tones were deep and rich, without any muddiness or problems.

| Audio |

Angel Has Fallen offers a really fun and immersive Dolby Atmos track, one that utilizes the surround and Atmos channels fairly aggressively at times.  Dialogue is always rendered cleanly and clearly throughout this problem free and very enjoyable track.

| Special Features |
  • Even Heroes Fall: The Story is an okay overview with some potential spoilers.

  • Someone to Watch Over Me: New Blood talks about director and co-writer Ric Roman Waugh, one of the supposed "new" folks associated with this film.

  • Calling All Angels: Casting focuses on the supporting actors.

  • True Faith: Authenticity addresses the filmmakers' perhaps questionable quest to keep things as realistic as possible.

  • Fights for You: Stunts and Action is a fun look at some of the film's set pieces.

  • Earth Angel: Recreating DC addresses some of the challenges of shooting overseas and basing much of the film in Washington, DC.

  • Angel Declassified provides some behind the scenes looks at two of the film's big set pieces, as well as the completely silly isolation tank coda.

| Overall Reaction |

The third successful entry in the franchise, Angel Has Fallen continues to show that audiences are enjoying these Butler action pictures. The Blu-ray release for Angel Has Fallen has plenty of supplemental features.   Not the best out of the the three (Olympus Has Fallen, London Has Fallen) but enjoyably for pure popcorn flick fun.
