Someone saw The First Power a couple decades back and thought "Gee if you throw a 'Name' actor in the mix and some hooky stuff and you've got a hit!".Well not so fast Chief, I'm not sure how profitable Fallen was but at least it is a pretty good serial killer flick with distinct supernatural and theological undertones.Detective John Hobbes (Denzel Washington) inhabits the Lou Diamond Phillips role. He too is an expert in identifying and tracking down serial killers, he too is celebrating a great 'get' in the form of Reese (Elias Koteas), an especially heinous individual who took great delight in taunting his pursuers, often calling Hobbes at home just as a tease.Even in captivity Reese is still cocky and brash, citing using obscure references harking back to eras long since past to bait and bait Hobbes in foreign tongues all the way up until his execution.

I have to rank this film up with the best of Denzel Washington. It's not one that I can watch over and over like Man on Fire, John Q, The Bone Collector or The mighty Quinn, but it is still an example of the excellent work that he has done throughout his career.If you believe in god, angels, and devils, then you will find the premise totally believable. Otherwise, it is an excellent horror film that supposedly explains evil in the world. It is never boring, as Emmy-winning director Gregory Hoblit (Hill Street Blues, NYPD Blue) keeps the pace up.With excellent support from such actors as Donald Sutherland, John Goodman, and James Gandolfini, it is an enjoyable experience.Check it out.
I could refer to this film as a "supernatural" thriller, and yet the beauty of it is precisely that it does not recur to grand visual effects to set and maintain its atmosphere of mystery, suspense, even horror. It tells the story of a police detective and an elusive serial killer, subtly but firmly injecting doses of Christian demonology and eschatology in the process. In the end, the filmmakers do allow themselves a bit of fantasy… I was irked by their selection of a cat as demon familiar, bypassing the top choice of a serpent. But then, a serpent is not very likely to come slithering by on a snowy winter evening in the deep woods of Canada, right? That would have ruined the casual, everyday tone of the film.
