Movie Reviews

Christopher Walken as The Angel Of Death...PERFECT casting.
Brent A. Anthonisen | Alpharetta, GA, USA | 08/21/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This series of movies details a war in Heaven between opposing factions of angels, those loyal to the Word of God and those loyal to the Archangel Gabriel (played superbly by Christopher Walken), who is jealously unwilling to be placed on a lower shelf than human beings in receiving God's love, being that we humans (or "talking monkeys", as sneeringly referred to by Gabriel and later Zophael throughout the series) were gifted by The Creator with a soul, which the angels lack. I won't detail each movie in the trilogy in terms of plot specifics (each movie is reviewed separately under its respective title), but I will go so far as to say that this represents a most original Biblical crisis, foretold in an innovative style. Each movie has its own merits as well as detractions, but the main reason for owning the full set is of course Christopher Walken. He's obviously enjoying himself throughout the entire series, and as a result he gives an inspired performance as an omnipotent being who is surprisingly weak in areas that one wouldn't normally expect. The key element to remember when watching the series is the lack of Biblical verse set in modern times. This creates a sense of displacement for the angels on Earth as portrayed in the series; Gabriel's fascination for 20th century technology belies his contempt for those who created it, and his inability to drive a car requires him to intercept humans on their way to their Eternal Reward in order for him to move from place to place. This is a problem that couldn't've occurred even in the New Testament and one that I feel is dealt with by the series' producers in a realistic fashion.If you're a fan of Christopher Walken, each of the movies is worth owning, as his development of the Character of Gabriel is well-worth watching. At the very least I can recommend the first movie in the series to everyone, as it presents a fresh take on a genre of films that lacks many recognized classics, outside of perhaps the "Exorcist" and "Omen" franchises."
Boxed set the only way to get part 2 now?
Stargazer | Kentucky USA | 12/19/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I wrote a review for part one and part 3 which were both superb movies, but part 2 I can not find to write a review although I do own the dvd.

Part 2 I do feel helps greatly to understanding part 3 much better although wasnt *as* good as the others, but still in all rights, a great movie!

There was a BOXED SET???
J. Sheeley | Shirley, MA United States | 12/16/2004

"I have been looking for a boxed set of this series ever since I bought the VHS tapes many many years ago. I have yet to actually see an actual image of the boxed set.. just references to the fact that there was one... and I missed it. I think if they take these things off the market I wish they wouldnt advertise them and get peoples hopes up.

Overall though I have bought the individual DVDs of this series and the movies are great entertainment (the first being my favorite - Viggo Mortensen as Lucifer was just totally creepy and to go from Lucifer to the King of Middle Earth is quite a feat..LOL). I do recommend at least seeing the first to get the true flavor."
Fallen Angels
Colin Molloy | Liverpool, England United Kingdom | 08/01/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Prophecy is a battle between good and evil. A tale of fallen angels on Earth doing battle over the human soul. Christopher Walken is the archangel Gabriel, jelous of humans and cast out by God he wants his revenge.Walken puts in yet another superb performance, he is edgy and menacing and not to be missed. A strong and different story this one will keep you intruiged right until the very end, and then have you gasping for more."
