An angel come to Earth to help save the world finds himself rescuing one of his own in this fantasy dominated by elaborate CGI effects. Gabriel (Andy Whitfield) is an arc angel who like others of his kind periodically takes human form to help battle the forces of darkness, led by Sammael (Dwaine Stevenson), and rescue humanity from the forces of evil. Gabriel joins six other angels for the latest round of street warfare against the agents of the dark, but en route he encounters Jade (Samantha Noble), a beautiful angel who has succumbed to the temptations of the world of humans and now supports her heroin habit as a streetwalker. Gabriel is immediately drawn to Jade's troubled soul, and takes it upon himself to bring her back to the forces of good, but his efforts to redeem her threaten to keep him away from his mission to defeat the darkness. Gabriel was the first feature film from Australian writer and director Shane Abbess. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
Good movie. Definitely worth the rent. It has a good story line, however be braced for all the foul language the world has to offer. It is used all through the movie. I think a movie about angels would be better without it. That being said, the rest was good. Had great action scenes and even a love story though short lived.
I really wanted to like this movie but I found it to be a wandering aimless waste of film. This new director should not try to channel David Lynch. When did intentional obscurity , bad writing, and jittery editing masquerading as art, replace solid film making? Save your money and time. This could have been good but the writer and the director always seem to take the low road when faced with plot choices.
