(film review) - Angel Has Fallen

I'm a 'Die Hard' Fan!  So, I was in absolute shock and horror when I watched 'A Good Day to Die Hard'.  Although I enjoyed the movie (I probably somewhat felt compelled to, as John McClane is my favourite movie character), but 'Man Like...' Mike Banning showed us heroism at it's finest!
