This is a spiritual fantasy - a battle between the forces of evil and the forces of good, between the angels and the demons, and the possibility that there might actually be a god holding it all together. Based on the novel by Mark Helprin and rewritten for the screen by director Akiva Goldsman, the story incorporates many aspects of other famous stories and films, which are instantly recognisable - Moses and the bullrushes, the Sleeping Beauty, Gangs of New York, Hugo, City of Angels, even the Fisher King, are all present here.
The hero is Peter Lake (Colin Farrell), a human who earns immortality through his unselfish love for a dying woman (Jessica Brown Findlay)and who thus becomes an earth-bound angel for another, future generation - Virginia Gamely (Jennifer Connelly) and her cancer-stricken daughter Abby (Ripley Sobo). His adversary is a demon, Pearly Soames (Russell Crowe), plying his satanic trade as an Irish thug on the streets of New York. Pearly and Peter are locked in a century long duel to the death, overseen by Judge/Lucifer (Will Smith) and a magical white horse. For those with a penchant for sci-fi/fantasy and an interest in computer produced visual effects, this is worthwhile entertainment. For those looking for something a little more meaningful, the film is mildly disappointing. What is definitely not disappointing, is Hans Zimmer's and Rupert Gregson-Williams's beautiful music score.
