    I CAN’T WATCH IT , WHY?? ALL TIME THE LOAD SYMBOL APPEARS

    It was just. HORRIBLE. God I wish I had never watched it. I know it’s just based on the novel so it’s not really supposed to come out as exactly the same but why the H did they not just do THAT? This movie is like it was made by a bunch of high school students with access to great equipment and professional cameramen. SERIOUSLY. The mysterious camera zooming in/out thing was good in the beginning, but why in the world would you be consistent with the movie looking like a 2-hour- long trailer? PLUS they didn’t even SHOW the BEST THING about this novel, WHICH IS the inevitable chemistry of Lucinda and Daniel! That moment? In the novel? When Daniel told Luce whatever secret he had been hiding the whole time? Dude, that was ENCHANTING! And they didn’t even at least just save THAT! I don’t even know why they didn’t slap in the “white peonies” thing which was a big “A” supposed-to-be scene for me and I don’t think I want to know. If you watch it, be ready to watch the most emo-sh*t movie you’ll ever watch.P.S. OTHER GUY IS *NOT* SUPPOSED TO BE THAT IN LOVE WITH LUCE AND SHE NEVER (EVER) WANTED TO GO WITH HIM (Geez).

    if you finish reading the series, you’ll get stunned by their eternal and everlasting love, so when it comes to the adaptation movie, you may expect it to be as explicit as Lauren Kate’s magical description. after i watched this in the theater, i thought the screenwriter made the story line much simpler for fallen readers(good) but unclear for other audience (so sad), that’s the reason why people dislike it. though the story line is brief and easy, there are some hints(or unexpected plots) showing up earlier than it should be( great rearrangements , i must admit.) and i love all the casts, acting and consistent atmosphere,hope to see the sequel.

    I am horrified, truly. The books were amazing, I have read them multiple times, and the least I expected from this movie was that it stays even a little bit true to book. Imagine my surprise when I watched this piece of garbage. I am sorry but this is almost like an insult for the author and the books.All the details were off. Different scenes and events from other books in the series were jumbled together, and even that I could have managed but they also got them wrong. this was all wrong. I get artistic freedom and all that but to turn something beautiful into this horrendous piece of garbage which only confuses you with all the bits and pieces which are put together as well as 4 year old would have done is just bad movie making. You could have even tried. It felt awkward and rushed, the acting was sub par and I truly wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. I am sorry but..It’s bad. Please, do read the books and don’t judge them by this movie.

    I gave this movie 2 stars just because of the castle used in filming. I understand it was a teen flick just like twilight but honestly the plot was very poor and when it ended I couldn’t believe this was it. I was waiting for things to get started. Why this movie was made I will never know nor the fact who thought it was a good idea to fund it. Hopefully they at least got their money back.

    I absolutely loved this movie! I’m a big fan of the books, so I was thrilled to find out a movie was made. I didn’t have high expectations as there wasn’t any publicity for this movie and I only found out by chance…I couldn’t be more wrong, as I was captivated from the beginning to the end. The actors are great, the atmosphere is perfectly created, the music is well-chosen and the story folds out in a very nice way. Does it make you think of Twilight? Yes, In soms ways.. But I don’t mind, as I enjoyed every minute of it.I will definitely watch it again!!Keeping my fingers crossed to see all the other books into movies as well.

    I went to the cinema with no big expectation about how good this gonna be. Tbh, this film didn’t get a good review in my country, same as the other countries’s movie reviewers. This didn’t get much attention for a movie goers, so here is my review about Fallen :I have read the book, it was fine. But that’s it, nothing more than the “fine” word to describe it. I think there’s too much descriptive about the S&C Gothic aura, and too fast for the ending of the first book. Same thing happens to the movie. But, I think the movie is better than the book (since I don’t like the plot on the book, too slow). In the movie you can see how dynamic Luce is, not too passive as she is in the book. But, too bad for the other characters that should be more involved in the storyline. They have more potential to make the story more attractive and interesting. As a filmgoers, I think they’re too focus on Luce and Daniel’s past without considering the other characters. I mean, Gabbe, Arriane, Molly, and Rolland didn’t get much plot for develop their characters and they looked like only as a extra-role. Even though, we knew those character in the book have a lot of part.P.S : I think the main problem is the distributors which not-so-active promoting the film, plus I just think Jeremy Irvine failed to catch an attractiveness to young girls or even Daniel’s character as he is described in the book. But, plus thing is : I love the song on the bon fire party, and still looking for the tracklist of it. It’s really catchy, seriously.

    I planned to go to the movies with my mom and sister and my sister isn’t really a big fan of book-to-movie adaptations so I thought she would hate it and didn’t even bother to ask her. However, she asked me!It’s a nice movie if you like the kind of stuff like Twilight, City of Bones and maybe even The Vampire Diaries. It’s a fantasy and has somewhat love triangle although the story never fully explains why both guys want the same girl.The movie starts of very well and is obviously a teen movie, but seems like something anyone would watch (and enjoy) if it came from TV on Saturday when nothing else would. However the ending is left very open, like they’re not even trying to get everything in one – or even on two films. I don’t know how many books there are, but I’m guessing three or maybe even four.Not my first choice, but it’ll do. Probably nicer to watch as a binge watch when all the movies are out.

    If you had to compare the novel and the movie. I would go for the novel but the recreation of the novel was exceptional even though there are some few key pointers that are missing I’m happy actually. I found it to be really brilliant that it felt more that I was watching a movie then I was actually reading the book it felt like its own secondary concept on the side and if there’s a second movie I would watch it.I was slightly disappointed how quickly it ended. It did feel complete but by human habit it didn’t for filling the spot. That’s why I recommend for the next movie to be made. Highly recommend it.If it was recreated to a series I feel as though it would be a run down like The Secret Circle. So over all I would watch it over and over again until the last book is recreated.

    A troubled teenage girl goes to a boarding school / treatment facility. There she meets a guy who seems familiar to her. He and a bunch of other strange kids turn out to be fallen angels which will be explained in detail in the classroom.Comparisons to Twilight are inevitable but there is much less in Fallen than in the first Twilight movie in terms of plot. The dark haired girl and her other worldly hero played by a British actor rescuing her are familiar and it’s okay to reuse the formula since it works. Here the difference is it’s angels instead of vampires and there is reincarnation theme shown in rather frustrating flashbacks. But things end just when the plot starts to go somewhere.The trend of spreading out YA fiction movies into three or more movies when the story is so thin to begin is a bad idea. Who can be bothered to wait several years for a romance like this to conclude? I felt like shouting hurry up many times.The cast is attractive. Addison Timlin as Lucinda is pretty but she doesn’t have that special something like K Stew had . She has the appeal of a supporting character rather than a main love interest. Jeremy Irvine plays Grigori. He is quite a likable actor with an impressive bunch of movies before like War Horse and Great Expectations. But here he is made to behave in a rather insipid manner and his passion is unconvincing. Harrison Gilbertson doesn’t look as strange as in previous movies though he lacks a dangerous element to be the bad boy – kind of insipid.There are some good points. The institution is picturesque and Gothic and spooky. The filming is beautifully done with the wings etc.If this movie doesn’t do well in the box office and they don’t make a sequel I would have wasted a couple of hours watching this.

    As a fan of the books, I’ve waited for a while to see the movie, and even tho’ they could have done a few things better, and I wasn’t thrilled with their choice of actor for Cam, I still feel like they did and overall good job. I’m really happy I got to see it and I hope they really do make that sequel. Bummer that for some reason it wasn’t shown in cinemas, just kinda feels like they had some bad luck with the advertisement for the movie. Either way it’s definitely worth the watch, it might not amaze you but it will not leave you high and dry.

    Acting was really bad, typical high school drama level, and in some cases such as school personnel you would think they had never been in a school. Teen level plot of eye candy lovers with Bible history 101 as their backgrounds as they seem to be immersed in the story of the fallen angels doomed to stay on Earth as a result of the conflict between God and Lucifer (i.e. Satan). The building for these trouble teens seemed like a prop for a Victorian horror set. The CGI was cheap and the dialogue high school level. Scenes were dumbed down, e.g. the students sneaking out for an all night kegger in which kegs appear out of nowhere in this isolated setting.

    This was so bad I forced my self to give it 2. Bad acting, bad story,characters are flat and uninteresting, idea of fallen angels and the reason for being on the earth wouldn’t buy even preschool kids… It was like this film was made by bunch of teen twilight fans, and made very badly. Waste of time.

    I wish that I could give this movie 0 stars but I can’t. I’ve read this book countless times over the years and I loved it… it’s one of my favorite book series and I could read it a million more times after this and still be in love with it when I read it. But I’m telling you… DO. NOT. watch this movie if you have read the book, or even if you haven’t read the book. They did a crap job on the movie: the actors/actresses were crap, the way they portrayed the story line was crap, they scenes that they did include from the book were so twisted that it’s almost as if I didn’t even recognize it, and they left out a whole bunch of scenes that I feel needed to be in the movie. I just feel as though they could’ve done a lot better on the movie and I’m disappointed that I wasted an hour and a half watching this… this monstrosity of a movie and I could’ve used that hour and a half for a lot of better things. I just did not like this movie and they did a crap job and I wish that they could’ve done more with this instead of doing what they did. It almost feels as though they put it together quickly and did not even read the book. Do not waste your time on this movie… I wish I didn’t.

    The teenager Lucinda “Luce” Price (Addison Timlin) is brought to the Sword and Cross reformatory by her parents to comply with a court order since she was accused for the death of her boyfriend Trevor (Leo Suter) in a fire. However Luce blames shadows for the incident and is considered lunatic. On the arrival, Luce is instructed about the rules and regulations in the school and has contact with the rebel student Cameron “Cam” Briel (Harrison Gilbertson) and then with Arriane Alter (Daisy Head). She visits the library and is welcomed by Miss Sophia (Joely Richardson) that gives books for her and is confronted by the weird Molly Zane (Sianoa Smit-McPhee). Then she befriends the student Pennyweather “Penn” (Lola Kirke) and she feels attracted by Daniel Grigori (Jeremy Irvine), who saves her from a falling statue of an angel. On the next days she is courted by Cam and Daniel and has flashbacks from Trevor’s accident and an apparently her past life. She also has a class with Miss Sophia about the war of the angels and the falling angels. When Penny and Luce research with their friend Todd Hammond (Chris Ashby) about Daniel, they find a XIX century picture of Luce and Daniel. However there is a fire in the library caused by shadows and Todd dies. What is the secret of the Sword and Cross?”Fallen” is another silly romance indicated for young teenagers and fans of “Twilight” only. Adults will probably find it desipient since after so many centuries angels should be more mature. The screenplay is not good and there is no explanation why the fallen angels live at Sword and Cross. The concept of angels with lightened wings is original and the soundtrack is very beautiful. And that is all. My vote is five.Title (Brazil): Not Available

    Yes..it’s a bit disappointing if you compare it to the novel version. Apart from the changes in the movie scene, the whole story line much less the same as in the novel. Some of the details and chemistry between Daniel and Lucinda was not highlighted in this movie and some characters must be clearly described in order for the audiences who did not read the novel to get a deep understanding on this movie. But I do wonder why is the “white peonies” does not appear in the scenes because that symbolize the love between Luce and Daniel. Overall, the whole movie is okay….and I love both of them, Jeremy Irvine and Addison Timlin plays the character of Daniel and Lucinda….

    As someone who’s read the books that this movie is based off of, I definitely liked how the story was portrayed. I don’t know what the budget was for this movie, but I wasn’t disappointed with the graphics, location, or the choice of cast. At times it can seem a little cheesy in the dialogue department, but personally I didn’t mind it. The movie hasn’t seemed to get much attention, at least not in the US, but I hope that, in spite of that, they make a sequel.

    Book to movie adaptations usually aren’t fantastic so I had low expectations for this movie. At the beginning it looked like I was going to end up pleased. The characters were enjoyable, Arriane was exciting and I was looking forward to seeing some more character development with her, as I was with Roland, and Cam, and Molly, and…. honestly every other character in the movie, with the exception of Luce. But it didn’t come, even Cam got a maximum of 20 minutes of screen time, Roland was probably there for about 5 minutes and said a total of about 10 words and a few “wooo”‘s. This movie honestly needed to be another 30 minutes at least, not to mention cutting out some of Luces brooding. I had low expectations already, but once I got to the end they were even lower. It had so much potential and unfortunately most of the movie was Luce and Daniel brooding which wouldn’t have been a problem if there had’ve been an extra 30 minutes of jam packed action at the end involving all the other characters. This wasn’t the case at all, and the ending totally ruined the entire movie. I still had hope for this movie at this point, and I was looking forward to seeing some actual conversations between a few of the characters, and it just ended. Obviously this is only the first book, but I have doubts about another movie being made, and I really don’t think that was a satisfying ending. A real shame because I think there was so much potential, especially if the post processing had’ve been better. A lot of the time the words didn’t match the scene on the screen. Super irritating and definitely made the movie feel unprofessional.TLDR; Hardly any character interactions, supporting characters just stood there in the background of classrooms, total brood-fest of Luce and Daniel, at least 30 minutes too short, unprofessional post processing

    The books were better but what book isn’t. I loved the movie anyway and I can’t wait to see if they will be making a number two to answer all my unanswered questions

    I read these books in anticipation for the movie. I’ve been waiting forever for the movie to release. I finally watched it and as with Vampire Academy they tried WAY too hard to make this something it wasn’t. They changed many things and brought in things from the other books. They barely showed the other characters. It was just a big mess to me. I mean maybe if I hadn’t have read the books I may have enjoyed it a little more but I would have had SOOOOOOOO many more questions if I didn’t know what was going on already. I doubt it will get any sequels due to the fans of the books not enjoying the movie. I would like to see if they could get better as the Twilight movies did but I don’t think they will take that chance.

    I have read this book for year after year. I read the whole serious numerous times. But I have never been so disappointed in my life watching this movie, It was completely ruined. I waited a long time for this movie and now that I have seen it I wish I didn’t because it is nothing like the book, poor acting and graphics and scenes that were completely different including the end scene. I said what the hell at least 4 times a minute.

    Movie was rushed and did not have an end. Did she survive? When the movie ended, all I was thinking was WTF. What happened to the friend? Did the angels bring her back to life? They said they would take care of her. What happened to the girl? Did she survive? The movie left me with more question than answers. The movie could have been so much better. There was too much focus on on it being artsy, not enough on the story line. The plot had no end.

    Ι read the Fallen series years ago and when it was announced it was finally being made into a film adaptation i thought it would come sooner. The book rights have been optioned ever since the first book came out in 2009. Fallen started filming in 2014 and after two years of silence and everyone thinking it would be scrapped eventually, the film came out in a few countries without any promotion or marketing. A movie that it is essentially released on its own cannot be a universal success. I’d say the lack of proper marketing set this saga up. I don’t believe a second film will see the green light. Aside from the terrible release strategy, the theme of this series feels too dated for 2017. The trailer of the movie was very Twilight from beginning to end. To be fair, the first book has a lot of Twilight elements but let’s remember that the book came out when Twilight was the It movie of the late 2000s and books similar to this story sold like hot cakes. The movie and the book are somewhat similar but i wouldn’t call it faithful to the original material. The castle they used as Sword and Cross is very beautiful which is part of the problem. The movie spends too much screen time with beauty shots of the school and forest scenes filled with smoke effects to set the mood. I cannot recall how many times i saw drone shots of the school being surrounded by chunks of smoke. Like, we get it. They also used smoke/steam inside the swimming pool which didn’t make much sense since it wasn’t a hot bath or a sauna. Addison Timlin as Luce is fine considering i am not a fan of Luce in the books. She is extremely restricted due to the script. Like every character in this movie she is reduced to brooding silences and looking sad. One of the biggest flaws of the book was translated into the screen unfortunately and the side characters are given zero time to unfurl and develop. They are in the background, throwing a couple of lines and then we never see them again. They are so insignificant i feel sorry for the actors. Jeremy Irvine is a one dimensional Edward clone who thankfully isn’t as rude and condescending as he was in the books but he has zero charm. He is either avoiding Luce or picking a fight with the other walking cliché, Cam. Cam was one of the most interesting, if not THE most interesting character of this series. He is supposed to be popular, charming, fun and sexy. In the movie we get a young Leo lookalike dressed in leather, pretending to be dangerous but doesn’t do anything remotely dangerous to cause any attention. He is forced and pretentious, hidden behind a so called mysterious persona which doesn’t offer anything. The actor got so caught up in Cam’s demon nature that he omitted everything that made him an intriguing character. Also the attempt for a love triangle is so blatant it’s hard not to laugh about the lack of substance. Luce has visions about her past lives with Daniel yet she’s canoodling with Cam because no one knows why. As soon as the truth is revealed she forgets about Cam and she immediately chooses Daniel without any buildup or good reason other than the film coming to an end. The only character that is actually trying to pierce the screen and get out of their box is Penn. She is geeky, sweet, funny and it is quite sad her end was so anticlimactic. Lola Kirke was really likable as Penn and if the saga continues, she is something to be missed. Let’s move on to the things that hardly made sense like the atrocious script that ruined whatever potential this movie had. The script consists of awkward phrases and none interaction. Whenever there is actual dialogue the scene ends. It was like the director wanted the characters to wander around aimlessly and let the audience guess about the story. The dialogue is partially and even at times, completely overlooked as if it has no significance in a story. When the story is about to take off the film is over. 85% of the screen time is devoted to Luce’s backstory and religion mythology which has way too many scenes. Learning about angels in a reform school? Why would they need to learn how to fence? Is it safe to give weapons to kids with psychological issues? We also keep hearing that everyone is dangerous and a troublemaker but the students seem perfectly normal. The surveillance is laughable since they are able to throw loud parties in the woods unsuspected and everyone comes and goes as they please. In the final scene Penn is murdered, Luce is screaming and Daniel breaks through a glass dome but no one hears anything. The production for a fantasy film is poor. The wings look small and unconvincing, the entire rooftop scene is shot inside a studio and the transitions from scene to scene are terrible. There is a motorcycle scene that I still wonder how it ended up in the film and what purpose it serves. There’s also too much blurriness in certain parts that can be annoying to the eye. Instead of spending money in smoke effects and ridiculous studio filmed motorcycle scenes with fans they could have done a better job with the editing and the screenplay. The flow is chunky because of the short screen time. 400 pages squeezed into 1 hour and 30 minutes and the result is rushed, badly produced, and forgettable. Fallen could have stood a chance if the production company had tried harder.

    Loved the books! But the movie was not very well produced… Even the Mortal Instruments, that also had a lot of very bad reviews… was better than this book adaptation. The cast is good, they are perfect for the roles. The whole movie leaves a very incomplete feeling, it leaves you with the feeling that you were supposed to see something happening that actually did not happen. It did not felt like a movie, it felt like a long trailer.
