"Bright Angel" has a gaping hole where a story should be
24 December 2001 | by =G=See all my reviews

"Bright Angel" tells of a young Montana man (Mulroney) and a young Canadian woman (Taylor) who end up on a road trip together. A plodding, tedious film, "Bright Angel" is full of characters who range from a little weird to very weird and who seem to be necessary to maintain audience interest in the absence of a story. A plotless and disappointing film which manages to do very little with a whole lot of talent, this flick is not likely to receive good reviews from the board of tourism for big sky country and will be easily forgotten by the public in general.
