Angel's Crest TRASH IT (C- ) Angel's Crest is full of all the clichés of indie movies. The movie has an interesting plot where a young father losses his 3 years old son in the wilderness. Angel's Crest was supposed to be about the effects of kid's losing on the knit tight society. Angel's Crest has managed to grape a huge cast but sadly the bad screenplay and no characterization led to a poor execution of the movie. I use to think Thomas Dekker is a good actor but now watching him in various indie movies and TV shows. I realized that he is getting kind of boring. In Angel's Crest he was playing a father and first of all he didn't looked like a father and secondly which father does the eye rolling and looks more feminine? He was completely misfit in this role. Lynn Collin and Joseph Morgan did a decent job. Mira Sorvino, Elizabeth McGovern, Jeremy Piven and Kat Walsh were wasted in such pointless script. Overall, the heavy emotional part of the movie is lost between the bad screenplay and characterization.
