Gabriel (2007) – Movie Review

Gabriel is a mediocre 2007 Australian supernatural film set in purgatory, a place in which the souls of those dying penitent are purified from venial sins.

SPOILER WARNING: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Since the start of time, heaven and hell have fought over purgatory and the souls trapped inside it. Each side has sent seven warriors: Arc angels from heaven, Fallen angels from hell. In order to enter purgatory, they must assume human form, which means they are not invulnerable. Despite that, they have the healing ability. Hell has obtained control of purgatory, transforming the place into a dark, seedy city. The last Arc, Gabriel (Andy Whitfield), endeavors to discover what has become of his comrades and to restore the Light.

With a budget of approximately $150,000, there is nothing much to shout about. The movie’s quality is mediocre – the lighting, the CGI and the sound effect. The cast does not has any good-looking actors except Andy Whitfield as Gabriel himself.

Maybe the only good thing is the fake blood used somewhat looks more real than Sweeney Todd and especially 300.

Overall, the movie is not worth watching, unless of course, you’re a fan of mediocre movie.

My ratings: 5 out of 10. Mediocre in every sense!
