Trivia

The film was released a year after both Christopher Walken and Eric Stoltz appeared in the Academy Award Winning, Pulp Fiction as both Stoltz and Walken had completed work on that film prior to starting work on this film. The way one can tell is Stoltz's look which he sports in Quentin Tarantino's film. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Simon: I remember the First War, the way the sky burned, the faces of angels destroyed. I saw a third of Heaven's legion banished and the creation of Hell. I stood with my brothers and watched Lucifer Fall. But now my brothers are not brothers, and we have come here where we are mortal to steal the Dark Soul, not yet Lucifer's, to serve our cause. I have always obeyed, but I never thought the War would happen again.

Worth a watch
6 May 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I have watched this film several times and have enjoyed it every time. Christopher Walken is excellent as Gabriel, as he has a presence on screen that just cannot be beaten. The theological side of the story is much more interesting than angels being fluffy creatures most people believe in, and are closer to the angels described in older scripts and texts. You can enjoy this film without being pulled in by beliefs and religion so don't be frightened of it, enjoy the film and another sterling performance by Walken.
