Angel Has Fallen (2019, dir. Ric Roman Waugh)

A veteran secret service agent goes on the run after he’s framed for a presidential assassination attempt. Third and best of the Gerry Butler actioners, this is reliable thick ear entertainment with some quality villainy from Danny Huston, and some excellent stuntwork (tho some iffy lighting of greenscreen studio space). Fun while it’s on.

Want another perspective? Here’s Xussia’s twopenceworth.

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991, dir. Kevin Reynolds)

Returned to England from the Crusades, a nobleman finds his lands taken and himself declared outlaw. Messy big-budget version of the oft-told tale mixing action-adventure, hammy playing and black magic/folk horror in at-times awkward measure. Fun in places though.

Going In Style (2017, dir. Zach Braff)

When their former employer reneges on their pension deals, three old men decide to rob the bank involved. Easy-going remake of a 1970s caper comedy. No surprises, but it coasts by on twinkly-eyed performances and some nice moments.

Evan Almighty (2007, dir. Tom Shadyac)

God chooses a new senator to build an ark. Bland sequel to Bruce Almighty which scrapes by on slapstick, some decent supporting turns, and on Steve Carrell doing his best against iffy CG backdrops. No surprises; one for the unquestioningly faith-friendly.
