Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

Set in Harlem and New Orleans in 1955, this supernatural thriller stirred a brief controversy in the US when released in 1987 because some scenes featuring Lisa Bonet (then a popular cast member of The Cosby Show) were considered too sexually explicit to be rated R. The plot follows the fortunes of a sullen detective (Mickey Rourke) who is hired to find a missing person by a shady client with pointy fingernails named Louis Cyphre (Lucifer, get it?), played with subtle menace by Robert De Niro. Rourke's investigation leads him into an underworld of voodoo and forbidden desires, and as the mystery unfolds director Alan Parker fills every scene with conspicuous style and atmospheric excess, compelling critic Pauline Kael to observe that "Parker simply doesn't have the gift of making evil seductive, and he edits like a flasher". And yet, this movie does casts a spell of its own (Roger Ebert's review was considerably more charitable), and the performances of Rourke, De Niro, Bonet and Charlotte Rampling are well suited to the ominous mood. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

5.0 out of 5 stars The best film ever made... six stars surely 4 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
A work of genius... atmospheric, gripping, terrifyingly clever. Needs to be watched more than once to pick up on all the subtleties... like Robert de Niro throwing salt over his shoulder before he eats an egg - 'the symbol of the soul'.
Mickey Rourke has made some real duff films but in this he is brilliant, de Niro is as great as he always is and Lisa Bonet smoulders while Courtney Pine's saxophone haunts the film and the great use of lighting, close-ups and camera angles perfects the effects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strange, haunting film 28 Jun 2005
Format:DVD
This is one of Alan Parker's best films. Harry Angel (Mickey Rourke) is a private detective hired by a mysterious client (Robert de Niro) to look for a crooner called Johnny Favourite, who disappeared after World War II. As he gets closer to the truth, the people he talks to about Favourite die in horrible ways. The film is like a nightmare: recrurring, unexplained motifs--a whirring fan and an old-fashioned lift going up and down--that are disturbing, but you don't know why. This is not a film for the faint-hearted--be prepared for lots of killing (although most of it is off-screen) and voodoo. There is a twist in the tail that makes you want to go back and watch it again. This is Rourke's best performance ever, as a man who is slowly falling apart.

People will likely fall into one of two categories of viewer. There will be those who first saw this film on general release some 24 years ago and fell in love with its originality, good acting and wonderful cinematography and there will be those like me who will be viewing the film for the first time. If you are in the latter category I promise not to give any of plot away. I think that it would be a real spoiler to come to this film the first time with any idea of the storyline. While there may be some clever souls who will guess the ending before it unfolds I will be quite happy to admit that it came to me as a complete surprise.

Irrespective of the clever plot and good acting I was completely blown away by the wonderful cinematography. And the picture quality on Blu-ray is absolutely outstanding. The inky detail of the blacks is simply stunning. There are quite a few dark scenes in this movie and the picture quality is every bit as good as the more recent movie, `Dark City'. Furthermore, on Angel Heart the choice of the locations is impressive and the film captures perfectly the atmosphere of mid 50's America.

In my opinion this is very much a film which you will be able to enjoy on repeated viewings, to savour the art of the cinematographer as well as to get a better understanding of the complexity of the plot. Yes, there are several murders and quite a lot of blood but I think you will be doing yourself a disservice if you choose not to buy for that reason. To a great extent the violence is retrospective and not in the same stomach wrenching category of `Saving Private Ryan'.

There are 2 choices of soundtrack, Dolby Stereo and an excellent DTS 5:1 mix.

5.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric thriller 29 Oct 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Very underrated movie from Alan Parker with a brilliant twist. The book Falling Angel on which it is based is superb also. Parker does the book justice although the action is relocated from New York to the Deep South. It doesn't really matter if you read the book or watch the movie first as both are great. Rourke is also at the top of his game here, his best performance in my view. He plays a down market P.I who tries to locate a missing person and gets drawn into much darker territory. My only slight quibble is that the UK blu-ray transfer isn't very good. Probably better to stick with dvd or import the US blu-ray which is far superior in terms of picture quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate supernatural thriller 8 April 2008
By LXIX TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Angel Heart is an excellent film. It's intriguing, it's macabre and it's beautifully shot.

The story follows the basic plot of the mysterious Louis Cypher (Robert De Niro) hiring private investigator Harold Angel (Mickey Rourke) in New York in 1955 to track down someone with whom he has 'unfinished business' with and hasn't seen since 1943.

The tale then leads to New Orleans where it always seems to rain and where anyone who the private eye (Rourke) comes into contact with is murdered in bizarre circumstances.

If you're watching this for the first time then the ending will really impress you. Even if you've seen it many times, it still doesn't fail to be very clever.

This is 2-pack edition is packed with extras and will make a fine addition to your DVD collection.

Overall, Angel Heart was one of the best films to come out of the 80's.

PS. If you liked 'Angel Heart', you'll also like 'The Ninth Gate', directed by Roman Polanski and starring Johnny Depp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gob-smacking!!! 6 Jun 2003
By Rick H
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I first saw this film back when it was released and it still manages to shock me with its many twists and turns. Even now, there are things that you missed first, second etc times round. Probably the best film Mickey Rourke ever made and a cult (please excuse the pun) classic. And the atmospheric sound track just adds to the creeping sense of impending doom and the ending that you never saw coming.
