Another Movie, please
14 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I have a very high tolerance for the derivative, the predictable, the bad, the boring, and the flat-out awful, but it took me two sittings to get through the entirety of this very silly film about fallen angels. Other reviewers have compared it to David Fincher's Se7en, and I can see why--this is, after all a slasher film infused with garden-variety Christian mythology, but that's as far as that comparison goes. This films lacks the energy, style, and originality to carry its audience well past the point of disbelief. It belongs to the school of thought that the supernatural just takes care of itself--it needs no explanation and no logic.

While the running time exceeds two hours, and the same level of detail could have been achieved in the shortest of films. I didn't find the ending to be as anti- climactic as other reviewers did, but then again I thought this was monotonic from start to finish.
