Don’t judge the film too quickly
I had my doubts about this film when I first saw the trailer – to me it looked like a ripoff of the Nightwatch premise. However, when I saw it I learned that the story itself was very different. Oh sure, it has a Jesus-like story arc much like the Matrix and a good vs bad that pretty much every fantasy film has.
What I liked about this one was that the story didn’t follow the usual formulaic storyline that you can almost time down to the minute. At first I wasn’t sure where the story was headed, but as it unfolded I became drawn into it. I enjoyed the story, and it’s exploration of the concept of freedom. I found it to be a story of great substance, and bears watching a second time in order to fully appreciate it, much like films such as Donnie Darko.
I liked that the cast was filled with people I didn’t know, it gave it a freshness and allowed one to view it without the context of the actors cluttering the story. I liked the gritty visuals and sound – it pulled this off without the need to provide motion-sick tablets with your ticket, unlike movies like the Bourne Ultimatum which took wobbly camera shots a bit too far. It is a look typical of many Australian films, such as Wolf Creek, but the comic-book look of the film gives it a sense of fantasy which suits the story perfectly.
One thing I particularly liked was the way the fight scenes were realised – a fresh approach to supernatural battles which, I think, works well.
I found the effects a little over-done at times, and some of the visuals could have used a bit more polish, but considering the film’s budget (or lack thereof), I think it’s very impressive.
Sure, it’s no Hollywood blockbuster, but that’s kind of the point.
WOW… An unexpected masterpiece
To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much of this film, but I am happy to say that I was completely blown away by it.
The lead actors Andy Whitfield (Gabriel) and Dwaine Stevenson (Samael) were amazing, I couldn’t believe that neither of them had done much work before, in my opinion, these are two men who have the potential to go far. Not that the supporting cast wasn’t brilliant, Harry Pavlidis (Uriel) stole his scenes completely and Michael Piccirilli (Asmodeus) portrayed his character so well, he made my skin crawl.
When I read that the film was made on a ridiculously low budget, I was shocked, it didn’t get in the way of the film whatsoever.
The plot and premise it very original and is carried out in an interesting and often spell-binding way. I was completely held from start to finish and think that in one viewing, it has made its way into my top ten films of all time.
I don’t know what else I can say about this film expect for: watch it.
