ReviewSource Variety
Review Angels don't have wings, and humanity is a pitiful species requiring redemption in Oz gothic sci-fi fantasy "Gabriel." Made on a wing and a prayer by debuting helmer Shane Abbess, this derivative, low-budget HD effort will be hellish for anyone outside its targeted youth audience. Substantial promo by Sony has helped muddled pic score high-flying returns locally in its first two frames, and similar campaigns could duplicate these results in other territories...Sluggish yarn progresses like a computer game running low on battery power, and lurches from setpiece to setpiece without achieving any narrative momentum. Some visual ideas -- such as a shootout illuminated only by strobed gun blasts -- are impressive, but most of the CGI has a secondhand look. Echoes of "The Matrix," "The Crow" and "Blade Runner" abound...Performances are labored, presumably in an attempt to reflect the characters' self-pitying ennui. Whitfield's handsome hero comes across as merely a naive and pretentious bore, while Stevenson, as the evil Sammael, is virtually unrecognizable, his face digitally adorned with Barney Google eyeballs. As with the other actors, Noble's mannequin-like perf is not helped by the script's tendency to favor platitudes and speeches over real dialogue.
