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.
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."

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.
