As if he were forged from bricks and mortar, he becomes the film’s fifth wall, filling the screen with his undeniably opinionless persona
Gerard Butler is the worst actor currently working in cinema. Continuously cast, and always bested, Butler is the epitome of what goes wrong with casting purely for the ‘big name’.
Tickets sell. Of course they do. An actor can’t be terrible and not sell tickets. But the two are not mutually exclusive, And whatever the appeal of Gerard Butler actually is for those, will never actually make sense, but his wooden attitude and entirely motionless face, will never win over anyone who understands human nature, even remotely. As if he were forged from bricks and mortar, he becomes the film’s fifth wall, filling the screen with his undeniably opinionless persona.
Aside from Butler, Angel Has Fallen is void of any enthral, filling it’s time with guns and cars like a strange form of mainstream B-Roll. It’s predictability is undeniable, and doesn’t even try to hide what it’s big reveal is, making it pretty evident from very early on. It’s actually so pointless, it’s amazing they even left the opening section in the final cut. Even Gerard Butler fans could have told you what was going to happen.
Just a cheap payday for the majority of its contributors, Angel Has Fallen has succeeded in turning it’s franchise into one of the worst trilogies of all time, creating another feature lacking in anything that makes it unique, and anything that makes it watchable.
