Oh, Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan. Their careers have not been in the best shape these days (Cage taking any role offered to him after going broke, and Ryan having bad plastic surgery on her face), but I do like most of their work and this one is among of them. When this film came out, Cage and Ryan were at the top of their games respectively, and see to them starring in a romantic drama dealing with ... read more

I wonder if I saw this movie before or after the original version directed by Wim Wenders. I’m pretty sure that I saw this remake first though. Anyway, when it was released, it turned out to be a box-office success and the song ‘Iris’ by Goo Goo Dolls (by the way, it is probably one of the worst band names ever) was for ever present for at least 6 months after this movie came out.

View all City of Angels (1998) reviews
Based in part on Wim Wenders's 1988 film, WINGS OF DESIRE, this is the story of Seth (Nicolas Cage), an angel who wanders the Los Angeles area invisible to humans. As someone's death approaches, he spends time near that person and becomes visible while acting as traveling companion during the trip to the great hereafter. His discovery of a distraught heart surgeon, Maggie (Meg Ryan), inspires him to forego his immortality and exist on earth with her as a feeling and mortal entity.

"Same story as with "Pulp Fiction" in that I've never seen the movie, but some elements and things I've seen from it have inspired certain things."

" At the core of the movie is a beautiful premise about an angel falling in love. Meg Ryan was still at the height of her leading romantic movie leading roles which made it hard not to understand why an angel would also fall for her, but the film ends up with a strange message. Is it God's will that love between two beings is best when it is a one-night stand between two people? Nicolas Cage plays the Angel and he comes across as a creep in the start too. Predictable screenplay too. "

Basically, it’s pretty much how it works with this movie, if you have seen ‘Der himmel über Berlin’, then you will probably despise this US version but, if you haven’t seen it, there is a fair chance that you will like it because it is not a really bad romantic feature and it has a decent concept. What’s difficult to swallow is that they took a very deep feature and turned into some rather sappy ” read more
