Excellent action film but not for children

Angel Has Fallen has plenty of action but it isn't for kids in any way. Lots of violence and some blood in many scenes. The hero constantly battles terrorism whose goal is to kill the president. There is a lot of swearing as well. No sex is present in the movie. I really enjoyed this movie like Olympus and London. Cannot wait for the 4th.

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing

The language is the worst I have heard in an R rated movie in a LONG time. I try to steer clear of R ratings but my husband wanted to watch this. At least 10 “f” words in the first couple minutes and so many in the rest of the movie I lost count. I should have gotten up and gone in the other room, but just tried to keep my mind on doing games on my phone. If language bothers you, do not watch this movie.
