Det. John Hobbes is convinced that when killer Edgar Reese is executed, all of his troubles are over. But when people he knows and people on the street start to sing the same tune that Reese sang in the gas chamber, and those same people taunt him, he is told that maybe the cursed fallen angel Azazel is behind it all. Azazel is cursed to roam the Earth without a form, and he can switch bodies by any contact, making him hard to track. When Hobbes is forced to kill a man possessed by Azazel, he must clear his name while protecting his family and others from the evil, vengeful Azazel. Written by

The name John Hobbes is based on two philosophers from the 17th century, Thomas Hobbes and John Locke. Hobbes generally thought that men were evil and needed the constraints of society to make them better. Locke thought that men are thinking, rational creatures capable of peaceful coexistence. These two themes are explored in the film. See more »
When Hobbes shoots the school teacher, after he fires one shot, his gun is apparently empty (the action on any semi-automatic 9mm handgun, like Hobbes' Glock, stays open when the final round is expended, as can be seen in the two quick cuts after the shot is fired). However, when Hobbes approaches the body in each view after-wards, the action of the gun is closed, indicating that he still has ammunition. See more »

This movie is one of the best I have seen in a very long time! With the excellence of actors such as; John Goodman, Donald Sutherland, and Denzel Washington, how could this movie go wrong? All three of these actors give the best performance I have seen from them. The story line is fast-paced and exciting, with enough twists and turns that even the most seasoned movie-goer will be surprised at what will come next. I was awed by the imaginative way that the catch phrase, "Time is on my side" was used. Anytime I hear it now, I remember that movie. I believe, if it can make a moviegoer remember it like that, it is a great movie! I am anxiously awaiting the sequel!
