Film Review Angel Has Fallen

This image released by Lionsgate shows Gerard Butler, left and Morgan Freeman in “Angel Has Fallen,” directed by Ric Roman Waugh.

There was a time back in the ’90s, where action films had believable plots. You could have a thrill ride like “The River Wild” or “Air Force One” for instance, with brilliant lead performances, gripping action scenes and everything in the story was plausible.

Then came the era of special effects, which gave us out of this world storytelling abilities, pushing plausibility down the stairs.
