Product Overview

Feel the power of the divine with this exclusive Warner Bros. Double Feature! Romance, comedy, and supernatural miracles are what to watch out for in these two films about men claiming to be angels. Enjoy Nicolas Cage in City of Angels and John Travolta in Michael!

City of Angels: Pragmatic heart surgeon Maggie doesn't believe in angels...until she meets one. That angel is Seth, who can remain a spiritual being and live forever. Or he can forsake his immortality on the chance that Maggie might love him. Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan star in the rapturous and tender romance City of Angels.

Michael: Next, romantic comedy gets its wings in Michael. John Travolta plays a disheveled, Heaven-sent angel who's just a little bit devilish as he tries to make the most of his terrestrial visit. Andie MacDowell co-stars as a member of a tabloid team that's eager to reel in a page-one story. Divine comedy!

Reviews
ReviewSource ReelViews
Review [City] City of Angels is based, not unexpectedly, in Los Angeles, which here is a literal "City of Angels," with the invisible celestial agents sitting high atop billboards and skyscrapers. Dressed like Heaven's Men in Black, the angels are an odd bunch. They spend their days and nights observing and occasionally offering comfort to select humans. They cannot touch, taste, or smell. They are immortal and ethereal...When it comes to heavenly matters, City of Angels doesn't offer any particular insights. The movie does not ponder the meaning of life; rather, it shamelessly celebrates the human experience by demonstrating the monotony of endless voyeurism. On a somewhat less-intellectual level, it's also about sacrifice. But the film doesn't thrive on ideas alone (if it tried, it would be in trouble, since it's not that deep). Solid acting and positive chemistry are critical to City of Angels' success.

Review [Michael] So popular are angels in Hollywood that just this season, John Travolta, Denzel Washington and Dolly Parton have played them in new movies...Travolta's angel is the scruffiest. He needs a shave, smokes a lot, eats his breakfast cereal using the backhanded steam-shovel spoon grip and lives in the office of the Milk Bottle Motel, somewhere in rural Iowa...A lot of the good things in the movie are charmingly inconsequential, as when MacDowell sings a Randy Newman song about pie, or when Travolta starts dancing to "Chain of Fools'' in a roadhouse, and all of the women are drawn magically onto the floor with him..."Michael'' doesn't set up big drama or punch up big moments. It ambles. Travolta, using the same offhand ease that worked in "Phenomenon,'' works his magic on the humans without even seeming to have his mind much on his job. He's more concerned with his farewell tour of Earth's pleasures.
