City of Angels


City of Angels stars Meg Ryan, Nicholas Cage, and Dennis Franz in a “modern classic’ film.  Seth (portrayed by Cage) is a guadian angel in the city of New York.  While in an operating room helping out a young girl that recently got into an accident to heaven the surgeon (Meg Ryan) notices him.  The movie revolves around Seth falling in love with that doctor and falling from heaven to be mortal so that he could love her as a human.

This movie is very touching.  Almost moving in a way.  The performances are well done (contrary to Jordan’s belief) even Nicholas Cage did a good job.  Why don’t we slow down, stop for a minute and love and enjoy the moments we are given.  Seth gave up his mortality to be with the woman he loved.  How many of us would do the same?

The movie isn’t very mainstream, the pacing is fast enough, but lacks action or any suspense.  I’m perfectly happy with this.  It could have been just a little longer to include more dialoge between Cage and Ryan.  I didn’t really understand why he loved her so much, or why she felt the same about him.

My verdict is 75%.  Go out and rent this film if you have the chance. You can find it on Netflix Instant View.
