NOT intended to be a religious debate - it's just a comedy...,
This review is from: Dogma [DVD] (DVD)
This film is an attempt, in my view a successful one, to entertain using a well known series of Roman Catholic IDEAS (not beliefs). There are plenty of films exploring religion and Christianity in particular but this isn't one of them so don't expect any moment of conversion to result from viewing it.
Severus Snape is great in this film (who knew!)and I have to say I liked all the characters and wouldn't miss out any of them in a sequel. Having said that I hope there isn't a sequel because the premise is really only good the once.
I enjoyed this film from the moment it began with the outcast angels through all the stuff in the middle (there's a nice bit when one of the prophets laughs knowingly, we think, only to discover it's just that he's finally worked out the joke about the the holy bartender)to the great ending when we find out if God is a man or a woman and get to witness what happens to humans who hear God's voice (hence why the "Voice of God" has a leading part to play in Heaven).
