Based on the bestselling book series, Fallen is told through the eyes of Lucinda “Luce” Price (Addison Timlin), 17, who lives a seemingly ordinary life until she is accused of a crime she didn’t commit. Sent off to the menacing Sword & Cross reform school, Luce finds herself being courted by two young men, Daniel Grigori (beautifully portrayed by Jeremy Irvins) and Cam Briel (Harrison Gilbertson) to whom she feels oddly connected.
Isolated and haunted by strange visions, Luce begins to unravel the secrets of her past and discovers the two men are fallen angels, who have been competing for her love for centuries. Luce must choose where her feelings lie, pitting heaven against hell in an epic battle over true love.
The movie involves a lot of action scenes where sound effects are important. The producers have done a great job of using sound to add emphasis to the plot. The effects on fire and motions of falling have also added great depth to the story.
Jeremy Irvine’s acting skills are another standout. He takes the audience on an emotional roller coaster, and moved me to tears with his convincing portrayal of a deep, enduring love for Lucinda.
Despite the great acting and effects, the plot is quite similar to Twilight. Having two guys fighting over a girl is a bit cliché. The fantasy element is quite similar to Twilight, too. There are also minor parts where the logic is lost, but overall, it’s a pretty good movie.
