Movie Info

Taking inspiration from Saint Columcille, a nine year-old boy recently diagnosed with a terminal illness sets out to locate God before the all-powerful deity finds him first. With nothing more than a ramshackle boat with neither sail nor oars to propel him, young Seamus soon comes into contact with compassionate strangers James and Darry. At first it seems as if Seamus and his fellow travelers share little in common, though as the quest continues it gradually becomes apparent that they are just as much in need of healing as the ailing young adventurer himself. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for 48 Angels

48 Angels is roughly about Seamus (shamus for the non-Irish among us) hopping into a boat on a mission to meet God before God comes for him. along his sailing he meets some colorful folks who he involves himself with.
I anticipated something about religion and God and Christ and that ilk, but this had as much to do with those as it did with baking recipes for the blind. What it did instead was turn the audience into the little kid and had him tag along as we followed a rogue IRA soldier try to get his fellow members back into the whole murder of women and children thang, as well as the 15 yr old who has no idea what he's doing in life and so puppy dog follows the IRA rogue. Not thrilling.

Beyond all that, the acting was sub par. I never thought he'd shoot the dude, and I didn't get what half the cast was doing in this film. However, Gracie, who was in the movie for maybe 5 minutes, was my favorite character. She was about the only believable character in the whole hour and a half.
So yeah, more words for this review than just about any other. That's because I think you should go see this movie for the sheer fact that I hope it will drum up support for the importation of future Irish films. This is the bullet we need to take for that dream to come true though.

This movie was not very good. It is hard to understand the actors and the movie ends very suddenly. Some of it keeps you intriged but in the end you will get very upset you spent time watching it.

Jeremy Poling

This movie just totally lost me as it went on. It was highly recommended at the video store and I thought it was very weak.
