After a ferry is bombed in New Orleans, an A.T.F. agent joins a unique investigation using experimental surveillance technology to find the bomber, but soon finds himself becoming obsessed with one of the victims.
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

In the original screenplay, the role of Gretta Milano (Embeth Davidtz) was originally two characters - Gretta and an elderly sage named Maude who knew much more about Azazel than Gretta. In this version of the story, the cabin in the woods scene was Maude's home. See more »
After shooting a man on the street, Hobbes walks over to the man lying in the street. The dead man is shown with a gun still in his hand, but when Hobbes reaches only the man's feet (nowhere near his hand), Hobbes is seen kicking the gun away. See more »

The great cast already hints at it, "Fallen" is a great movie.
Best way to watch this movie is to not know too much about it. Just pick up the movie and let it surprise you. It's like "Identity", the less you know about it, the better.
Director Gregory Hoblit is a great and underrated director. He knows how to get the maximum out of everything. He also directed the movies "Primal Fear" and "Frequency" and much acclaimed television series episodes for "Hill Street Blues", "L.A. Law" and "NYPD Blue".
Really great about the movie is the story by Nicholas Kazan (yes, indeed the son of...). It's supernatural but it still knows how to remain believable and realistic. The viewer never knows what he is going to get and what will happen next. This is why it is best not to know too much about this movie's story before viewing it for the first time. All of the story its surprises will work better this way.
A bit of an forgotten underrated movie.
