Fallen Movie Review
Fallen is a creepy, supernatural thriller that had everything going for it and successfully wrapped the story, characters, and suspense up in a nice, little bundle. Denzel Washington was his usual best, a believable character with ideals, dislikes, and bravery. Supported by the likes of John Goodman and David Sutherland, casting was not the problem. Nor was the story. Like stated in the first sentence, Fallen truly was creepy and original, dealing with a demonic force. The best part was when Denzel or Embeth encountered the demon in the crowds of the city; it passing from one person to another before their eyes, speaking to them, threatening them. No, story and dialogue were not the problem. The problem was the ending. This was about the last ending I could have chosen for a movie. Now, I'm not going to give it away but I'll just say that the reason this movie is 2.5 stars instead of 3.5 is because of the conclusion. The conclusion was well done but definitely not likable; but hey, that's me and everybody else that watched the movie. You may like the finale but I doubt it.
