Fallen ( Visual )
7 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Thriller. Meestal is de doodstraf een afdoende maatregel om de kwaadaardige activiteiten van een misdadiger te stoppen. Maar in deze macabere thriller heerst het kwaad over het graf heen. Kennelijk ziet de geèˆxecuteerde moordenaar Edgar Reese kans om ook na zijn dood zijn slag te slaan. Of - en dat lijkt voorhands een redelijker verklaring - misschien is er een ander misdadig sujet in de geest van Reese aan het werk. De makers van Fallen (de titel verwijst naar het fenomeen gevallen engel) lieten zich dankbaar inspireren door Resnikoffs The first power, en ontleenden sfeer en vormgeving aan de Se7 en Kiss the girls. Denzel Washington voegt zich naadloos in het geheel als de schrandere detective John Hobbes, de man die de zaak Reese onderzoekt. - (tv-gids)
