Product Description

Product Description

Fallen (BD)


Although it received mixed reactions from critics and audiences alike when released in 1998, this supernatural thriller benefits from a sustained atmosphere of anticipation and dread, and its combination of detective mystery and demonic mischief is handled with ample style and intelligence. Under the direction of Gregory Hoblit (who fared better with Primal Fear), Denzel Washington plays detective John Hobbes, who witnesses the gas-chamber execution of a serial killer (Elias Koteas). But when another series of murders begins, Hobbes suspects that the killer's evil spirit has survived and is possessing the bodies of others to do its evil bidding. Even Hobbes's trusted partner (John Goodman) thinks the detective is losing his grip on reality, but the dire warnings of a noted linguist (Embeth Davidtz) confirm Hobbes's far-out theory, and his case intensifies toward a fateful showdown. Although its idea is better than its execution, and the story's film noir ambitions are never fully accomplished, this slickly directed thriller has some genuinely effective moments in which evil forces are entwined into the fabric of everyday reality. Among the highlights is a memorable scene in which Detective Hobbes must track the killer as the evil spirit is transferred between many people via physical contact. Even if the film is ultimately less than the sum of its parts, it's an intriguing hybrid that resides in the same cinematic neighborhood as Seven and The Silence of the Lambs with a cast that also includes Donald Sutherland and James Gandolfini. Included on the DVD is a full-length audio commentary by director Hoblit, screenwriter Nicholas Kazan, and producer Charles Roven. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Simply put, "Fallen" is a pure classic in the psychological thriller genre! Very few films in this genre that attempt such status actually ever achieve as successfully as this film does. From the very beginning of this film to the end it is an intense, script and character driven silver screen masterpiece. One of the most interesting aspects of this film is that it can be watched over and over again, given time in between viewings, and one can pick up different things every time, making it that much better.
Performance wise, Denzel Washington delivers one of his most powerful and memorable performances in this fine film. Of course, over the years he's proven himself to be one of Hollywood's finest in that very few films of his are less than spectacular. This particular role for him almost engenders the aura that it was specifically written with him in mind as the lead. John Goodman's performance is right on par with his usual style of acting, making the film that much better. Donald Sutherland's performances over the years have been, to me, somewhat spotty with his performance in this film being one of his better ones. The only other film that I've watched in which Embeth Davidtz, and incredibly beautiful actress, has starred in was "Schindler's List." Her performance in "Fallen" is extremely memorable, leaving one to the conclusion that they should check out her other films. Of special note is seeing a pre "Sopranos" performance by James Gandolfini.
It's official, I'm a fan of Director Gregory Hoblit's films as he's not only deftly directed this fine film but other enjoyable films such as "Frequency" and "Hart's War.

I rented this movie from Blockbuster last night, and I am kind of glad that I did because this movie was damn right good. Of course I plan to buy this film, but I am here to write a review and here it is. Mr.Washington plays a detective named John Hobbs, he captures a cold harded killer named Edgar Reese, and he witnesses his execution.
But this is where it get's creepy, his soul escapes his body, and transfer's to a guard who released the gas. See Edgar Reese killed his victims, but he was controlled by a demon, and Edgar was not in his right space of mind, he was used like a puppet.
So as the demon then moves around to find other victims for it's sick game, the killings begin, the first person to kill someone always left a bowl of sugar, a box of cereal with sugar on it, and the bowl of cereal all align together.
Now as John finds out the truth, with the clues left my the killer, he then finds out about the demon and tries to stop it.
The movie is VERY good, and the best thing about is that, IT HAS NO GORE unlike other films like Slience of The Lambs, Hannibal, and Red Dragon just to name a few. So rent this or buy it and you wont regret it.

The story itself is a step away from the more common crime/scandal dramas and powder-puffed action suspense movies, not to mention the 'Man's daughter is kidnapped, Kidnappers die, Man and daughter hug and live happily ever after' scenerio which will forever pop up with popular and talented actors (Don't Say a Word-2001, Swordfish-2001). 'Fallen' is a suspense film, yes, but with a fictional dangerous-religion twist combined with the star power and more importantly tremendous acting talent of Denzel Washington. A detective, (Denzel Washington) becomes the target of a fallen spirit's vengeance who can travel from human to human by way of a simple tap or touch. Denzel untangles the ncient mystery of this demon and consequently becomes a timid believer in it's existance and power. The movie has an eery feel and a well-supported cast including veteran actor Donald Sutherland and part-timer on the big screen John Goodman. It's unigue expression of the vengfull demon story and the beautifully done dialogue by Denzel Washington make it what I think a terrific film, not another 'Hollow Man' that most would enjoy only once for its' FX and then let it drop to the world of Star Trek fans and sci-fi people. This mysterious suspensefull drama is interesting, well-acted and worth a good amount of credit in its' originallity and good direction. And for a small number of you, guess what, it has James Gandolfini! Oh wow, yes rent it because its' got what ever his first name Soprano in it. I hate that show, don't look for a review of mine there.

As a suspenseful mystery, FALLEN is a great movie (though if you are observant the movie's twist is revealed in its opening scene). However, the last act nullifies the movie's good moments.
The entire premise of the movie is totally un-Biblical and anytime a film uses a Biblical concept (demons) then totally twists it around without regard to the source, it is diminished in my eyes. Also, the movie is a wicked movie, wicked in the sense of its overpowering evil and the fact that there is no catharsis. Movies like that just aren't very entertaining to watch.
Nevertheless, there are a couple of reasons to watch FALLEN. First, there is Denzel Washington; he's just a fascinating actor to watch perform. However, the main reason to watch this film are because of its supporting actors: John Goodman and Donald Sutherland. They outshine Washington in almost every scene.
If you enjoyed THE EXORCIST, you may like this movie. It's also worth watching if you're a Washington or Goodman or Donald Sutherland fan. Other than that, I'd reccommend watching something that leaves your emotions purged instead of pent up.
