Editorial Reviews

Fallen angel Sammael has claimed the midworld in the name of darkness. With the help of his menacing, gun-toting task force, he has smothered the dark, dreary city in vice, violence and cruelty. Sammael's victory is assured--until the arrival of Gabriel, the last of Heaven's seven archangels. Gabriel is young, strong and the mightiest warrior seen since Michael, his predecessor, disappeared. In no time, Gabriel's bravery and skill threaten to decimate Sammael's evil henchmen and redeem Jade, the lost angel with the heart of gold. But Sammael has one last card to play: the secret of his own past, the knowledge of which could destroy Gabriel forever.

By Brian E. Erland HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on March 15, 2008
Format: DVD
Synopsis: The Archangel Gabriel descends into the intermediate world of Purgatory on a mission to destroy a group of fallen angels who have taken control of the realm, thus preventing the human souls there from evolving upward. Six Archs (Archangels) have preceded Gabriel on this dangerous mission and all have mysteriously disappeared into the foreboding landscape. Will Gabriel be able to stand alone against the combined forces of Sammael, Amodeus, Lilith, Molloch, Ahriman and the rest? And what of the six missing Archs? What horrible fate has befallen them?

Critique: The '07 film `Gabriel' has cleverly blended disparate elements from numerable popular, financially successful films and added several interesting ideas of its own into one storyline that may not be highly original but is definitely entertaining.

Recipe for making `Gabriel':
- Begin with the basic ingredients (storyline) from the cult classic `The Prophecy' minus the comedic elements provided by Christopher Walken,
- Blend with the graphic, cinematic style of `Sin City',
- Sprinkle liberally with some of the pervasive melancholy made famous in `The Crow',
- Add a pinch of costuming ala `The Matrix', one creepy looking bald, vampirish bad guy reminiscent of `Blade II', an attractive brunette who bears a strong resemblance to Kate Beckinsale as she appeared in `Underworld' and a little `City of Angels' at the very end.

Secret Ingredient:
-For a deeper more profound flavoring check out an obscure, Indie film from '03 titled `The Despiser'. It also deals with a war in Purgatory in which the ultimate danger is that death in this realm equates to permanent extinction. Sound familiar?

While there are plenty of similarities and comparisons one can make with other films `Gabriel' is still somehow unique enough to carry a distinct flavor and texture all its own that should attract a wide audience of loyal fans. I'm certainly one!

I haven't enjoyed a movie so much in quite a while. It's dark, gritty, action-packed, but the action doesn't distract from the great story. I especially loved that it didn't shy away from using actual biblical angel names instead of making up something to avoid offending anyone. This movie can be watched on many levels: just for the surface story or for the deeper view of humanity, good, and evil through the eyes of the main character, Gabriel. Either way, it's a great movie for all angel fans or really anyone up for a dark action movie with a good story.

This dark, orginally unknown film is building a growing, enthusiastic following outside of its cult, low budget origins. Shot in the tradition of The Crow, Highlander and Sin City, it has an artsy, comic book appeal. Excellent production qualities, lighting and sets belie its tiny, independent film budget.

This is fantasy-horror stuff, and it takes awhile to get into the twisted apocolyptic world that the characters inhabit. However, the strong acting and near perfect casting soon grips you into this strong and mystical morality tale.

A truly remarkable find in film making, especially noteworthy coming from a group of relative unknowns from Australia. A great add to your collection.

I had some hopes for this movie when I picked it up, but after about an hour, my hopes became more concentrated on watching the timer drag slowly towards the 114 minute mark. This was a very disapointing film and the twist at the end was pretty weak I thought. All the arch angels of Heaven could not fight the forces of darkness in Purgatory, a place where the souls of people who's fate has not yet been decided go. I didn't know that that is what Purgatory was supposed to be. God can't make up his mind? Anyway, why were the fates of these souls undecided. They were practicing rapists, theives, killers and prostitutes. They were drug dealers and sellers of illegal firearms. They shouldn't have been in Purgatory if the only criteria is that God has not decided on where they should spend eternity. Anyway, the forces of darkness have taken over and arch angels from Heaven (or THE LIGHT as they called it. I guess because they had to be politically correct and not use words like God, Supreme Being, Creator etc.) were sent down one by one to defeat the forces of darkness and bring light back to Purgatory. Six archangels fail and Gabriel is the last one. When he arrives he becomes a warrior in a post-apocolytic looking city or something. I found it troubling that the weapons of choice by angels would be knives and guns and bombs and lead pipes. It was hard to accept this place as Purgatory. Anyway, the movie has it's moments when Jade is rescued, then plays not much of a part any more in the picture and when Raphael is healed. After that, the film is a series of ever increasingly boring fight scenes, including the final climactic one which seemed to take...well, it took an eternity for goodness sake. This isn't really an unwatchable film but I would not recommend it to anyone and for sure would never consider owning it.

I was rather surprised by this film because I expected it to be yet another low budget flop. surprise! It is very good, has a lot of action, gunfighting, and even some special effects that were pretty good.
the story starts off with Gabriel last of the ArcAngels (their spelling, mine is ArchAngel)
well, each time he taps into the "source aka God" for power he not only grows weaker, but alerts all the demons exactly where he is.
as if that's not enough, the last 6 arcangels failed to bring about an end to the darkness and now it is totally up to gabriel to end Sammael's Reign of evil and put an end to darkness and finally release the sun.
a really well done flick but if you are looking for constantine style effects you will be dissappointed. this film has quite a few talkie spots but the story is so compelling you might not notice.
most of the effects are comprised of super strength, speed, some glowy Particle effects and changing eye color. (eyes seem to represent demon (reddish amber) angel (blue) and regular human eyes.)
my only minor gripe with the film was the fact everyone (angels and demons) used guns for fighting and naught else. still great though.

Overall: this is a good film not overloaded with effects, blood and gore etc. it is a gripping story about the final fight for purgatory and the souls of earth and the fallen angels. I'd recommend it.

4 Stars.
Extras Include:
deleted Scenes, and 3 making of featurettes. not bad.

Buy it here!
