User Review

A very beautiful movie

Rating: 8/10

I had very low expectations because the movie was so low rated and
Megan Foxx was in it and I wasn't so convinced of her talent so far.
But Mickey Rourke and Bill Murray in it made me curious and so I
watched it and was very surprised how much I liked it. Until the end
where Megan takes Mickey on a flying tour, the movie was a little
confusing for me in some parts but then the end reveals what the movie
is all about. Mickey flies over his dead body and finally realizes that
he is dead. So in the beginning Mickey is not saved by these strange
men in white clothes, but he is shot. He is dead but doesn't realize
it. He meets his "angel" which needs to fulfill the task of bringing
him to the aftermath, but Mickey can't let go of his human life on
earth yet. Bill Murray is the force who symbolized Mickey's inability
to let go and leave earth, because Bill wants to take away his angel
which Mickey needs to travel to "the other side". But Mickey in the end
is able to take back "his angel" and finally he is also able to let go
of his human life, which is shown in his free will to jump from the
roof. Now that Mickey is really ready to go the Angel takes him (now
also the Angel is ready, she suddenly is brave enough to fly) and while
Mickey sees his dead body lying on the floor, he not only realizes that
he is dead but he smiles which means he now can accept it. He learned
to fall in love with his angel which was needed to make this journey.
In the end everything makes sense and leaves you with a smile on your
face. I love this movie, esp. the story, but also the actors, the
atmosphere and even Megan Foxx. 🙂
