Whatever small pleasures it may offer are wiped out by the frustrating sense of incompleteness that accompanies the arrival of the end credits.
Yet another would-be YA franchise inspired by recycled formulas rather than life experience.
Burdened with ideas of reincarnation and Christian mythos, the supposedly swooning love triangle among Luce and her beatific beaus lacks any of the organic interaction that could produce chemistry.
Filled with heavy breathing and intense staring that seem to go on for ages, Fallen could have been a really good movie but the bad script and forced acting did not leave any room for character development.
Fallen is It's nothing but a weaker version of everything that has come before it, the mythos is convoluted and ultimately uninteresting, the CGI is ropey at best.
... bogs down in melodramatic brooding and supernatural nonsense without establishing much reason for emotional investment. But hey, at least everyone is pretty.
"Twilight with angels" feels too late to be relevant.
We're not finished with supernatural romances aimed at teenagers, apparently. Then again, maybe we are, and Fallen simply didn't get the memo.
Despite its limitations, this is a pretty faithful adaptation of the book, which is what most viewers will be looking for. It lays the ground rules effectively for what may comes after.
It didn't take long for Twilight to fall into self-parody and we've seen the YA brand evolve as a result, with diminishing results. Apparently somebody forgot to send Fallen the memo.
A nearly incomprehensible farrago of the tropes of young adult literature and pseudo-religious myth, hobbled by a trio of uncharismatic leads and exploding at the end with some hilarious not-so-special effects.
Angels walk among us in this teen fantasy flick that fails to realize its potential.
A Twilight wannabe, Fallen is a generic tween fantasy thriller that's dreadfully boring. The story follows a troubled teen named Lucinda Price who's sent to a special boarding school where she meets a brooding young man that she instantly falls for, and she begins to believe that they've met before...perhaps in a previous life. Addison Timlin does alright as the lead, but really isn't given much to work with. The writing is incredibly bad, telegraphing the whole plot from the jump and delivering incredibly clichéd dialog. Still, the film has an interesting artistic look and the score does a good job at setting a dramatic tone. While Fallen shows some potential as a series, this first installment plays as a poorly made Twilight rip-off.
