What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Angel Has Fallen is the third action thriller in the series that began with Olympus Has Fallen and continued in London Has Fallen. This time around, Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) is falsely accused of an assassination attempt on President Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman). After escaping custody, Banning must evade the Secret Service and the FBI as he works to clear his name, discover the actual threat to the president, and put an end to the danger facing the country. If the first two movies in the series are any indication, viewers are likely in for lots of strong language, plus tense, narrow escapes with characters in grave peril, big explosions, bloody shootings, and a high body count. While it may appeal to adult/older teen action fans, kids should probably skip it.
