Gerard Butler is back for a third outing as secret service agent Mike Banning, who must once again protect the President from a dangerous terrorist threat. This time around it’s made a lot more complicated because he’s set-up for an assassination attempt against Allan Trumbull (Morgan Freeman). So with the bad guys and the authorities after him, there’s only one person Mike can trust to help him out of this situation – his estranged dad (Nick Nolte). There’s a lot of fun to be had here, with a fantastically-entertaining level of action and some decent comedy thrown in too. Lance Reddick, Jada Pinkett Smith, Danny Huston, Piper Perabo and Tim Blake Nelson all hand in great support but it’s Butler’s charm that seals the victory.
