Completely taken by surprise
Almost An Angel, I happened upon this movie just channel surfing and was just floored. Great movie from start to finish. Elias Koteas gives an awesome performance that just shows once again how he is one of the most overlooked actors in Hollywood. But what really caught me was the story and dialogue. This movie was wonderfully written. I would’ve never guessed Hogan had it in him. Enjoyable movie and I strongly recommend it. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!
Paul Hogan plays a criminal who steps out in front of traffic to save a child, and becomes an Angel… almost. He says he’s on probation, sorta… but what are you to believe? Is he nuts? Hmmm. Maybe. The humor and light-sided religiousness makes this film a delight.
Don’t worry about being converted or anything, this is an open-ended movie with morals, granted, but also with that special touch of human bonding, and what it means to love others.
Hogan’s writing, directing, and acting career spans just 6 films that I know of, and this is a lesser known one… I had the feeling at the end that it was looking for a sequel, or a TV series. No such luck.
Magical, humorous, charming, disarming, alarming, and inspiring… see it at least once.
