Movie Info

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

    Watchable, with great CGI, but not entirely well scripted. Although he's not overwhelmingly good, Andy Whitfield is good enough to make one wonder what might have been had he been given more time on earth.

    "Gabriel" is the action-packed story of the Archangel Gabriel who fight for the return of the light to purgatory - a place where darkness rules - and save the souls of the city's inhabitants. A well-acted and spellbinding action thriller about the supernatural forces struggle against evil. A film in the vein of Underworld and Blade Runner.

    Far from decent! Why do I keep changing channels and deciding to see movies that look interesting in the slightest sense? Why?? Even the fight sequences were so ridiculous that I blushed. I felt like ashamed from watching them. To top it all, we have the fact that this film influenced the awful concept of God losing faith or losing control over mankind, and angels with guns! Yeah, with guns! How cool can that be? Aghhh! 31/100

    A little confusing, but this was still a good movie. It starts out a little slow, but it quickly picks up with quite a few action scenes. It was a lot better than I thought it was going to be!
