Product Description

Paul Wesley (The Vampire Diaries) stars as Aaron Corbett, a high school jock with a promising future. But on his 18th birthday, his life forever changes when his incredible powers emerge, revealing the terrifying truth of his identity. As The Redeemer, a half-angel, half-man who can return fallen angels to heaven, Aaron holds the entire world's destiny in his young hands. He must battle warrior seraphs and confront the fallen angel who has sparked his nightmares (Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad). But can he save himself and the girl he loves? Based on the bestselling book series, Fallen soars to new levels in the battle between good and evil.

The complete movie event includes parts 1-3: The Beginning, The Journey, and The Destiny

The Vampire Diaries' Paul Wesley is top-billed in Fallen, a surprisingly entertaining action-fantasy miniseries about a teen who discovers that he possesses unearthly powers. That's a hackneyed premise on which to hang four hours of TV (Fallen aired on ABC Family in 2006), but thankfully, the film's writers and producers have found a novel wrinkle on which to hang their story. Wesley's Aaron Corbett is one of the Nephilim, a race of mysterious beings mentioned in the Book of Genesis and other religious works; for the purposes of Fallen, the Nephilim are the sons of the angels cast out of Paradise with Lucifer, and Aaron is the Redeemer, who can send these outcasts back to Heaven. This newfound status gives Aaron powers ranging from mastery of languages to the ability to speak with his dog, but also makes him the target of the Powers, rogue angels assigned to eliminate his kind. To protect his family, Aaron hits the road with former Power Camael (Rick Worthy) and a Fallen named Ariel (Ivana Milicevic). What follows is surprisingly engaging drama well balanced with some impressive CGI-driven fights between Aaron and the Powers. Wesley is fine as the conflicted Aaron, and he's well supported by Tom Skerritt as Ezekiel, his Fallen advisor, as well as Hal Ozsan as the loose-cannon Fallen named Azazel and Bryan Cranston as Lucifer himself. Though clearly aimed at teen audiences, Fallen is the rare kid-friendly effort that holds appeal for nearly every member of the family. Unfortunately, the DVD is bare-bones save for a promotional trailer. --Paul Gaita

I loved this show so much that I went ahead and ordered Fallen - The Destiny as well. Upon recieving Fallen (Part 1 and 2), I found that Part 3 of the series is also included in this disc set, not just Parts 1 and 2 as indicated in the description. So when you buy it you don't need to spend the extra money and purchase Fallen - The Destiny to have the whole series after all.

Aaron Corbett (Paul Wesley of the Vampire Diaries) is an orphan who has found a loving home. He's got a great life, supportive family, he's a jock, he's smart, basically he can write his ticket to any college he wants. Then on his 18'th birthday everything changes; hidden powers emerge and he learns the terrifying truth that he is a Nephelim. A Nephelim is a cross between a fallen angel and a human and is considered an abomination by the Powers (Gods angels). He will be hunted down and destroyed unless he accepts his destiny as the Redeemer, the prophesied Nephelim who is the savior to the fallen angels.
The movie series centers around him finding out, accepting, and surviving to fulfill his destiny. The movie is interesting and well done. While it does take liberties from the best selling book series it's still well done and will keep you interest.
The acting is excellent though at times overdone. I loved the character of Gabriel the Labrador but I wish his voice hadn't seemed so contrived. The special effects were overall well done and I especially liked that they didn't over do the flaming swords.
I didn't give this a 5 star rating because while there are shows on TV that come off feeling more like a movie this definitely has a Made-for-TV feel.

Based on the FALLEN books (eg. Fallen, Leviathan, Aerie & Reckoning) written by Thomas Sniegoski . . . unfortunately (as with most movies) it doesn't follow the true path in the books. Personally I found the books to be far better. The movie was good in its own way, but I like the way the book ended better than the movie.
Originally an ABC family mini-series, which was first aired in 2006 (The Time of the Redemer) and followed with additional episodes in the summer of 2007 (Mysterious Ways and All That, Someone Always Has to Die and Il Gran Rifiuto aka the Grand Refusal).
The movie introduces us to Aaron Corbett . . . a Nephilim . . . the offspring of an angel and mortal woman. Hunted by the Powers leader Verchiel (a woman in the movie), Aaron is informed by a Fallen Angel of his TRUE nature. Of course he is in denial, but events slowly unfold as his angelic powers start rising to the surface. When Verchiel goes to his home she's hell bent on anniliating him, but after blasting him into fire he walks out, his angelic nature surfaces and he battles with her. He is then forced to flee home with the angel Camael and his dog Gabriel, he leaves all his loved ones behind.
A prophecy foretold " . . . in the footsteps of his father, in the sign of Virgo, a Redeemer will be born. His hands will deliver fair judgement. Ye will know him by his markings, names on his flesh reveal his mercy. The Redeemer shall judge what the Fallen have done and bring the Fallen to ascension and glory one more. Many shall seek him. Those meaning to destroy him will guide him to his fate. Again all of the damned or Fallen shall know Paradise, once again the Fallen will have time to make right where they went wrong."
During an encounter with the Powers Camael is wounded.

I Loved this "Show". It stars Paul Wesley, Who is now on the CW's Vampire Diaries, As a supposedly normal teen and orphaned at an early age when he is adopted into a very nice family that has an autistic son. On his 18th birthday when most teenagers would get a car or a great party he gets Wings, As in ANGEL Wings!

Now MY review...

I was THRILLED to see something so different on TV especially when it has religion in it. Most Networks and well EVERYONE avoid Religion and Politics even if it IS Fiction. I was really hoping that this would have been a actual SHOW and not Just a Mini-Movie. That said I WAS Really Happy with what they did in telling his story BUT they did leave a cliff-hanger. So It is possible to get MORE someday. If You have any interest in anything having to do with Angels both Good and Bad, Then this "Movie" Is for you. It has action, romance and a bit of magic.

I watched the first episode while vising my father and my aunt in Vermont when I was seventeen. I fell in love with the story. That winter, I lost my aunt. The following summer, when the final two episodes came out and I was able to curl up and watch them with my boyfriend (now my husband). Through my tears of missing my aunt, I was able to enjoy the conclusion of the story. I love love love love love love this story! If you love stories about angels, this is a must see!

I enjoyed this miniseries on Blu-Ray, but I found myself getting more and more annoyed by the editing. At every commercial break, instead of nicely tapering off the music and sound effects way ahead of time and dissolving the audio with a clean cut for the video so that it feels seamless, they just suddenly duck the music at the last second and do a fast fade past black, often returning to completely different music.

As somebody who used to do a lot of TV production work, I found it very jarring, particularly during the third part, where you'd be smack in the middle of an intense action sequence, and then bam, suddenly the entire feel of the program shifts without warning. That makes it glaringly obvious where every commercial break fell.

Contrast this, for example, with Stargate SG-1, where they designed it for continuous viewing, and unless you just know how to spot the act breaks, it feels like a short film. That's the way TV editing should be done. Besides, there's no guarantee that a rebroadcast will put the breaks in the same places anyway, which is why a well-edited TV show should *always* be seamless when viewed without commercials even if you don't plan to make it available on DVD. You can always put in the fades after the fact, but you can't easily take them out if they're poorly burned into the master.

This miniseries makes me wonder if any of the editors actually sat down and watched each part from beginning to end before the program aired. It just feels sloppy. Somebody should really go back and at least put in some J-cuts or something.

Almost all DVD players can now be unlocked with a code so that they become region-free. When I was in Australia, I did it with two different players.
