Clint Says: Save some money and see a matinee
This is the third film in the "FALLEN" franchise. You would think by now that the President would realize that his number one security guy is incredibly terrible at his job, because people have almost killed him in massive plots three different times.
Just fire the guy already!
As for the movie, it's the same stuff as before, just a different setting. Lot's of explosions, lots of gunfire, and about a thousand laws broken, but none of that matters in the end, because the good guy finally gets his man.
The best part of this movie is Nick Nolte. He completely steals the show. He is hilarious and heartwarming. And he adds a much-needed element of humanity to the story. Without him this film would be stiff and unbearable.
As with most movies of this ilk, it is full of plot holes and moments of convenience. Just ignore those and go with it if you want to enjoy the film.
If you like high-stakes action flicks then you'll probably enjoy seeing this. You might as well see it in the theaters, just so you can get the full, body-shaking effect of stuff blowing up. If you are hoping for a smart, political thriller you should keep your money in your pocket and wait for something else to come along.
