I actually watched this one a few days back and am just now getting to the review. Why you may ask, well that’s an easy one….I’m still trying to get the stink off of me from watching it. I had really high expectations for this one and they were bitterly dashed multiple times throughout the course of the movie.
First is the premise, God has finally had enough and has sent Angels down to Earth to wipe out mankind. Ok with a premise like that I was sure there would be some epic action scenes. Sadly no, there was a couple of scenes of the characters shooting people that had been possessed by Angels and one decent fight scene between the Arc angels Gabriel and Michael.
I still held out a little hope for the acting as Dennis Quaid was in it but that hope was soon crushed by truly uninspired acting by all the characters. I’ve heard the expression “Phoning it in” but had never really seen it until now. Over all I won’t recommend this movie to anyone as I felt it was an anticlimactic waste of time, all build up and no payoff. I’d give it 1.5 stars out of 5 and only because the editing and directing was pretty good overall…though there is one scene the director tried to use a strobe effect to increase the dramatic effect and ends up being distracting.
