8/10: Detective & Demon In Deadly Dual...
Wednesday, November 18, 2015

Detective & Demon In Deadly Dual Shortly after thinking that he'd brought an end to a series of murders, a homicide detective starts to realise that the perpetrator is still at large and is also someone who couldn't possibly be arrested or brought to justice by conventional methods. The way in which his investigation leads him to these findings and the formulation of a highly unconventional plan to end the killings, provides "Fallen" with its extremely offbeat plot. This well-written story begins very colourfully in a way that raises a lot of questions and then proceeds through the investigation stage before reaching it brilliantly twisted conclusion.Having been responsible for capturing serial killer Edgar Reese (Elias Koteas), Detective John Hobbes (Denzel Washington) visits him on death row immediately prior to his execution. Reese's behaviour at this time is rather strange as he thrusts his hand out strongly to shake hands with Hobbes and sets him a riddle...

alright supernatural thriller This movie wasn't horrible ... but it wasn't good. Th writing was great. Every "fact" was backed up in some way or explained in some way to leave the acts that were going on understood. An outcast angel was thrown out of heaven without a body and so it is able to take the body of humans by touch. The angel turned evil and enjoys death and singing. He or she grows a sort of infatuation with the main character played by Denzel Washington and wants to invade his body next. What keeps this story going is that this angel cannot enter his body, which is the only detail not explained(or maybe I missed it) but may be able to enter his body if his host carrier dies and he is left floating in the air... The basics of the movie are there good plot, good script, but fairly boring. There are no real thrills...

a ridiculous supernatural mystery This movie might appeal to people who like scare themselves by imagining evil threats coming from the supernatural world, angels and demons and things that go bump in the night, but if you're more reality-based than that, you'll probably disappointed. The movie begins as a standard police murder/mystery, and the circumstances of the murders are peculiar enough to gain your interest. Too bad it couldn't have stayed in that realm. Without spoiling the film completely, it's enough to say that once it turned toward the supernatural, it fell completely flat for me. I mean, how can a serious actor like Denzel Washington speak those lines with a straight face? At least Donald Sutherland (who never seems to stop making one movie or another for a single day of the year) was given a part he could play straight without having to spout mumbo-jumbo. John Goodman only had to get...

9/10: More Than Your Average Supernatural...
Sunday, February 6, 2005

More Than Your Average Supernatural Suspense Thriller! After my initial viewing of the movie, Fallen, I knew that I had just seen a brilliant film. However, I did have a few questions, mostly concerning plot holes and things of that nature, so I immediately watched the parts in question again and found that everything ties in nicely with very few, if any, plot holes. If there are, I can not find them.John Hobbes (Denzel Washington) is a homicide detective who apprehended a killer named Reese, who is put to death for his crimes. Upon witnessing his execution, Hobbes continues on with his life until similar murders happen to catch his attention. It turns out that Reese was possessed by the demon, Azazel. Azazel is able to transfer himself from human to human simply by touching them, in most cases. So Azazel eventually finds himself a human host and begins another murder trail, confusing detectives by killing someone and leaving...

A fascinating and chilling film.... Detective John Hobbs finds himself battling a formidable supernatural foe when a string of serial killings continue after the murderer dies in the gas chamber in this compelling thriller written by Nicholas Kazan and directed by Gregory Hoblit. Usually, I don't expect much from big-budget studio "horror" movies except special effects overkill. This film is a rare, pleasing exception that doesn't insult the intelligence of the audience. I really liked the script. It was rich and complex, even if, in retrospect, the misleading voice-over crossed the line. I was really expecting a lot more from writer Kazan after this film. Hard to believe all he's been able to deliver subsequently was "Homegrown," "Bicentennial Man" and "Enough." Enough indeed! As good as the script is, the film ultimately belongs to the actors. Denzel Washington is terrific, and it is great to see him backed up with talented supporting actors like Donald...
