FALLEN or 1/2 of A Review for 1/2 of A MOVIE

Since Fallen was has a running time of nearly 3 hours, I decided to split it into 2 viewings of 1 ½ hours. The movie starts with Jenna Haze and Brad Armstrong in a sex scene. Jenna leaves and takes the elevator, which crashes. Jessica Drake was the angel assigned to watch her but when she arrives at the apartment house she finds the door is locked and she can't get in to prevent Jenna from being killed in the elevator crash. This does seem like awful sloppy angel work and, if I understand the plot correctly, Jessica is stripped of her wings and has to live among the mortals for her error.

This leads us to Jessica sometime in the future and she is living a carnal life and going to an orgy....I think we are supposed to believe she wants to feel something in her existence. The only thing I felt was I was watching an overly long unnecessary scene that really had nothing to do with the movie....Thank Goodness for the FF button.

The next day Brad Armstrong "bumps" into Jessica, but she fails to recognize him. This is just setting the plot for a future meeting. Next up is a sex scene where Jessica meets a couple of cops and has sex with Randy Spears on the hood of the cop car. The next day she meets Brad again and they make a date. At the end of the date, they have sex and the next morning Jessica finally figures out that Brad was Jenna's boyfriend. After this, an upset Jessica convinces Herschel Savage to let her ride around on the top of his cab (maybe it makes her feel like a flying angel) in exchange for sex.

As far as I remember this was about the half way mark and as I'm typing this, I realize how weak the plot is in this movie, even though it didn't seem that bad when I was watching it. On the plus side for the movie: there was some outstanding camera work, some of the best I've ever seen in a porno. And Jessica Drake really did a good acting job in the movie.

So, a little time elapsed and I started watching the rest of the movie and I was BORED, BORED, BORED.....maybe I thought the first part of the movie was better since I had just finished watching Cry Wolf and was glad to see something....anything else. What happens in the second part? I did so much FF that I can only tell you there is some tattooing, motorcycling, and camping, some more camping, and of course sex scenes. I have read that there is a surprise ending, but I couldn't even make it that far...if anyone wants to add the ending in the comments box, please feel free to do so.

Ha! I had a very similar experience! I also found this movie rather boring. I know people who enjoyed it though, so maybe I need to see it again. Though judging by your review, maybe not, seeing as it reiterated my initial feelings.

Oh, and I'll let your little Cry Wolf swipe fall by the wayside... :)

Gore Gore Girl - I think my problem with Cry Wolf and Fallen is that I just don't like pornos that are too serious. Thanks for your comments.

In case you want to read another outlook on Cry Wolf - RADIATION CINEMA has a mini review under the comment section of that movie.

Yeah, I read it - interesting. I like to read perspectives that clash with mine (it doesn't make me like the movie any less). I actually like porn that approaches its topic with a certain seriousness, but of course I like fun ones too. As I said before somewhere, I can understand why you and others don't like it (and other movies that deal with difficult subject matter). Anyway, I'm not trying to dredge all that up - I was just making a little joke.

Let us know what you think of Fallen when/if you make it to the end!

Oh, I knew you were joking and I don't mind disagreement. I won't be finishing Fallen, it has already been returned to my rental service.
