Rating: 1.5/5 -- Portrait of a one-trick pony in the middle of his third trick.
Rating: 3/5 -- An entertaining, and even touching tale from Hoges
Rating: 1/5 -- They'
Rating: 2.5/4 -- I cannot, however, much as I'd like to, quite recommend this movie -- the going gets a little thick at the end, and some of the plot developments are dumb... But that isn't to say I'm scornful of the film's special qualities and its gentle good humor. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Angel is a film that makes us smile even when we're not sure we should. Full Review
An incorrigible thief is convinced he's died and returned to earth to do good deeds after being knocked unconscious by a car while saving a child's life. His newfound mission to make the world a better place propels him into some funny and heartfelt situations. Charlton Heston plays God.
A man is released from prison only to begin a new career as a bank robber. In between heists, he uncharacteristically saves a man from being run over, but is himself struck by a car. After the fatal accident, he ends up in heaven, where he's made a temporary angel -- with the possibility of getting permanent status if he does enough good deeds. Skeptical, and uncertain that he really is dead, he carries on with his criminal career... until a series of coincidences convince him that he really has left this world. So he turns over a new leaf and vows to help people, in particular a sick young man and his mother.
