When serial killings continue after the murderer dies in the gas chamber, a homicide detective faces an enemy who will test him as never before.
Hard to remember a time when we weren't concerned with Hollywood's end-stage dementia. Fallen is an awesome throwback to when mainstream cinema was a little more spirited: One of those feel-good retro-horrors from hazy '90s video-store-days. A string to truly memorable moments, such as the legendary intro, the twisted ending and a fallen angel murmuring in Syrian Aramaic "I'll fuck you up, down, left, right, coming, going. I'll get so close to you, so close it breaks you. And if that doesn't work, I have other ways. I have so many, many ways."
By no means revolutionary. By no means intellectually aggressive. But still an immensely enjoyable film. One of Denzel's finest. Unfairly forgotten. Ladies, gents, cocksuckers, pederasts, take it from me: Time is on Azazel's side. Yes it is!
