Fallen ★★★½

It’s a shame that so many good ideas and strong actors are let down by such a flat production. Denzil Washington plays a working class police detective, John Hobbes (his character a aptly named because the movie plays with ideas of divine providence). Essentially, this is cosmic horror with the actual horror removed, replaced by a mundane thriller. Hobbes is targeted by an ancient demon/fallen angel able to jump bodies. I really like the premise and the broad outline of the story. It’s got a fantastic cast. Somehow it’s all just a bit dull. Worth watching, though.
