Well if you don't, disbelievers... I won't spend an hour preaching like an evangelist on a sweltering Sunday morning to convince you.
Just watch Gabriel.
Talk about an instant conversion. Forget about sending good lil boys to Christian camp, send them to the movies instead. Seriously. Forget all about the hours of catechism and sunday school. One look at Gabriel's electric blue eyes ( played by the delicious oh-praise-God Andy Whitfield ) and I was instantly converted.
Even better than a blinding ray of illuminating light from the heavens.
I bet no one has even heard of this Gothic movie - and I seriously wouldn't blame ya. Even I didn't know the name of the movie though I actually saw the movie poster - as everyone probably did since it's particularly memorable. Hot guy in long coat looking broody over the evils of mankind?
In a nutshell, the movie's all about the angel Gabriel and his trip to Purgatory to reclaim some fallen comrades. God certainly picked the right messenger since while spreading heavenly goodness, this arc angel also kicks some demon arse and takes names. Think slick MTV shots paired with edgy urban CGI realism. Think Constantine meets Sin City. With the minuscule budget they had, this Australian production certainly did alright. Certainly not an Oscar-worthy blockbuster - could have done so much better - but hey, it certainly rocks for two hours.
And baby, fallen angel or whatever, I'd still do Gabriel! Even ( blasphemous though it sounds! ) on the altar of the fallen-down church. Just a sight of his...*ahem* wings and you'll be transported to a higher level. Trust me, once you see the shots of his... heavenly song, you'd be a true believer too.
