Why pick Mike as a patsy?


Of all the SS agents they could pick to leave alive to frame, they pick the one guy who has averted two separate world disasters and is(or at least should be) beyond reproach. After the second movie, where the entire world saw him swooping in at the least minute to save the presidents life, nobody should believe for a damn second that he would attempt to assassinate another one.

So true LOL! I see Mike Banning as similar to John McClane. As in he's always in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Yeah, I remember thinking along the same line when watching it. But then again, being the most decorated agent also means that he's probably the most equipped to do it, and let's not forget about his medical condition and the fact that he hides it.

I haven't seen it, but I read the wiki summary

I agree they should've used his condition as a red herring - or SOME thing, because otherwise Banning's absolutely above reproach

Reminds me of the fourth Die Hard movie - if I'm recalling correctly, Cliff Curtis's character knew from the get-go that McClane was one of the good guys, even if he was working on his own

Then there's "China Moon," where Ed Harris, the best homicide detective, is targeted for frame-up specifically because he'd solve the crime if they framed anyone else.

I agree. It didn't make sense to do this.

Have a short review of this movie if anyone is interested. Enjoy! Review here - https://youtu.be/ZTgrSK3FXiI
