Plot:
Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) is still working as the leading Secret Service agent to protect the President (Morgan Freeman), but he is in talk to be promoted to Director. Mike is hesitant to accept, though, as he has health issues he is keeping from the President and from his wife Leah (Piper Perabo). Before he can make any decisions, though, the President is attacked and all the agents protecting him are killed – all but Mike, who is injured, and the President himself, who is in a coma. Quickly, blame falls on Mike and Mike has to run to find out who is actually responsible for the attack.

Angel Has Fallen is probably my favorite of the three Fallen films. That doesn’t mean that it’s a good film, but it is the perfect film to get drunk to and laugh about.

But the prosecution is quite unwilling to help. It’s only when John offers to basically go undercover for them and get some bigger fish arrested, that they agree to help. So John asks his employee and ex-con Daniel (Jon Bernthal) for an introduction into the drug world and soon finds himself a little in over his head.

Snitch isn’t a great movie. But it is quite ok and surprisingly full of social criticism.
