Action: A Secret Service agent tries to clear his name when he's framed for murdering his entire team and trying to assassinate the President of the United States who's now in a coma.
Mike Banning (GERARD BUTLER) is a veteran Secret Service agent who's thinking about retiring, what with the physical toll the job has taken on his body. His wife, Leah (PIPER PERABO), longtime friend and fellow Army vet turned military contractor Wade Jennings (DANNY HUSTON) and even President Allan Trumbull (MORGAN FREEMAN) think that Mike should take over running the Secret Service once current director David Gentry (LANCE REDDICK) steps down.

But all of that's scuttled when an attempt is made on the President's life via an array of attacking drones. While they purposefully spare Mike's life, eighteen members of his team are killed and President Trumbull is left in a coma. All of which means that not only has Vice President Martin Kirby (TIM BLAKE NELSON) taken over as the commander-in-chief, but also that FBI agent Helen Thompson (JADA PINKETT SMITH) is trying to figure out why Mike was the only agent to survive. When all sorts of evidence points to him colluding with the Russians on the attempted assassination, he's arrested and shipped off to a highly secure facility.

But while en route his government entourage is attacked and he's taken hostage by those working for the mastermind, followed by him managing to escape from them. Realizing the entire world is now looking for him, Mike seeks out the help of his estranged and completely off the grid father, Clay (NICK NOLTE). With his help, he avoids another attempt on his life and then sets out to clear his name, all while using everything he's learned in his line of work to help him elude capture and nail the bad guys.

If they're fans of the previous films -- "Olympus Has Fallen" and "London Has Fallen" -- they'll probably be interested in seeing this sequel.
For violence and language throughout.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
