City of Angels

City of Angels ★★★

In spite of the borderline insulting premise based in myth & magic, this flick succeeds far more than it has any right too. I was both angry & blatantly aware of the utter stupidity as it unfolded, yet it still tugged at my heartstrings just enough to keep me emotionally invested. Why? Because Ryan & Cage both sell the fuck out of it, the former more so. And as much as I despise anything steeped in this much religious tomfoolery, as an ill fated love story, it hits the mark. A great casting job saved it...
