Editorial Reviews

Starring Academy AwardÂ(r) winner* Mira Sorvino and Olivier Martinez, Angel of Deathtakes you into the depths of Holy Week and the most spectacular Easter celebration in the world. But as hosts of hooded penitents parade through the ancient, narrow streets of an old town in time-honored ritual, a series of bizarre ritual killings follow their path. As the death toll mounts, it falls to detective Maria Delgado to stop the predator - before he claims his next victim. *1995: Supporting Actress, Mighty Aphrodite

Customer Reviews

In fact, its probably the worst accent ever done in any movie ever made.
Arthur Kicker
The writing is terrible, the dialog is lame, the acting is stilted, the directing is amatuerish.
Amazon Customer
It's an awful movie, I hate to say, there's no positive spin I can put on it.

Mira Sorvino and Olivier Martinez star in 'Angel of Death' (origianally called 'Semana Santa') produced by European film companies from as many as six countries -- Germany, Italy, England, France, Spain, and Denmark. The film was theatrically released back in 2002 in France. Since then three years have passed, but probably you still never heard of the film. No wonder, because the film is so bad, so dull, and so sleep-inducing.

While all the dialogues are spoken in English, 'Angel of Death' is set in Spain, and Mira Sorvino plays Maria, detective transfered from Madrid to Seville. During the celebration of Semana Santa, she is given a case of brutal murders, committed by a serial killer in red robe. With chauvinist cop Quemada (Olivier Martinez, 'Unfaithful' 'Taking Lives'), Maria starts the investigation, picking up the clues, and confronting the uncorporative section of the ... are you still listening?

The clithe-ridden script is no help when director (or whoever involved in this film) does not know how to show thrills and suspence on screen. When you see the killings on screen, they are all shown in the most banal way; you watch, 1) a victim; 2) a killer; 3) the former is attacked (with no preliminary part to enhance the tension, in the same fashion as cheap TV games), and 4) dead body or injured character. The film refuses to scare us, or even the victims themselves, and the results are utterly thrill-less thriller. That's surely achievement, sort of.

But what Mira Sorvino is doing here? Detective Maria Delgado, wearing tailor-made suit and skirt? She sports curious Spanish accent (which suddenly vanishes at times), but that is not the worst part of it.

ANGEL OF DEATH would be a good movie for insomniacs. It's incredibly slow and the plot is so convoluted and confusing, it's hard to keep up with it, if you even stay with it to the end. Mira Sorvino and Olivier Martinez sleepwalk through their roles, and it is only the glorious presence of Italian screen legend Alida Valli that induces me to give it two stars. She is marvelous as the elderly lady whose story is at the heart of the picture. She commands the screen with gentle elegance and she deserved a better movie than this.

One may wonder why a film with several distinguished and popular actors, which is the case of "Semana Santa", has had so relatively few Amazon-U.S. reviews until now (writing in Jan. 2015). Well, there are a dozen of them, at present, for the film in its North American packaging, as one finds it on the North American edition viewed (Alliance Atlantis 20645) as "Angel of Death" (in French titled "Ange mortel"). The film has not had much of a welcome on DVD, judging from Amazon and IMDb reviews. That is understandable, however, despite so many good ingredients, not least of which are the beauties of traditional, Spanish Baroque encrusted and super-Catholic Sevilla as well as elsewhere in Andalusia, the movie's settings, which also are its filming locations. The first part of this motion picture makes Seville's visual splendour very present to the viewer's attention.

The other truly major visual asset is Olivier Martinez, the French actor of the Spanish family name. He looks in top form, and, let us face it, the man who has been called "the French Brad Pitt", rather inappropriately due to the decidedly latin character of his undeniable physical beauty and grace, thus differing considerably from Pitt's very Anglo-Flemish/American brand of charisma) is terrific "eye candy" to find in such a minor-league film. Unfortunately, Olivier Martinez' acting, as seen here, does not manifest itself, alas, at his best. Mostly Martinez displays too seldom relenting states of irritation, pique, and male-chauvinistic boorishness; although that is, of course, in large part the fault of the movie's mediocre script, Martinez' crude acting here on this outing does nothing at all to compensate or to make the best of it.

I expected more from Mira Sorvino in this film. I know she is an "Academy Award" winner, so I expect great films from her. This is an ok made for cable movie. I have seen thousands of these type films on cable and this will probably end up another lost in cable movie. Oliver Martinez looked like he was forced to be in this film. There was no chemistry between Sorvino and Martinez. They seemed like they hated each other and couldn't co-exsist together in this film. There was also really no suspense since the characters didn't make it interesting. I know these actors are good actors, but they were acting like typical B-actors if even that. Now I know why this movie has stayed away from American theaters. This was a hard to swallow film that moved very slowley and the actors didn't help. If this movie is on cable give it a try. I wouldn't waste my money buying this movie or renting it either. You will waste your money. If you want to see a great movie with religious themes try "The Da Vince Code" or "Angels and Demons" these movies are a lot better and in the same genre. If you wondering why the three star rating? It's because I'm comparing this film to other made for cable movies. If I was comparing it to "The Da Vince Code" then it would get a one star rating. This movie isn't even close to being compared to those films.
