Audience Reviews for The Fourth Angel (The 4th Angel)

Decent flick, could have been a lot better. Good performances by Whitaker and Irons.

The Fourth Angel is quite ok and it has two very good role performed excellently by Jeremy Irons and Forest Whitaker! The story is good the things in it allows Irons to do a lot. There were some flaws in the movie, like the scene of the hijjacking, was not so convincing, people were sitting too quiet and relax in the chairs. The music is pretty good and it fits the film very well! The scenes when Irons and Whitaker are together really makes the film good and Whitaker does a very good job here.He is really a superb actor. Plus I like to see two unusual actors together in a film and see how they can make it interesting.

Another the part I didn't like is the hunting scene. Other than this is a decent film! If you want to see Jeremy Irons and Forest Whitaker kicking some asses, than watch The Fourth Angel!
