Jan 22 – Not knowing that it was an Australian production, we decided to check out “Gabriel” at the Cathay Cineplex in the Curve. I have nothing against Australia but their movies are way down my list of ‘watchable’ movies.

Gabriel was written, produced and directed by Shane Abbess. It was his first feature movie. The leading role featured Andy Whitfield who acted as Gabriel.

The story line was interesting enough when the Archangel Gabriel was sent to the world to fight the Fallens who has plunged the world in total darkness. He was the last Archangel left. Six other Archangels have been sent earlier and were presumed to have been killed.

Gabriel’s arrival was felt by the Fallens who were led by Sammael. As Gabriel moved around the mortals, he found five Archangels Uriel, Raphael, Ithuriel and Jade alive. All of them had failed in their quest and lived in shame as normal beings. Not knowing that the Fallens were at his heels, he led the Fallens to the Archangels who were hiding. The Fallens quickly sought them out and killed Uriel, Raphael and Ithuriel.

Gabriel was left alone to fight the Fallens.

(Verdict ahead)

The whole movie was set in a dark background. The acting was mediocre, maybe due to a poor script while the cinematography was amateurish. Overall, it was below par.

After finding out that it was an Australian production with a low budget, I would classify is as a very good effort based on the limitation it had. But still it was bad movie.
