Review of City of Angels (1998)

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 angels is interesting. Apparently I discovered that it was a remake of "Wings of Desire" by Wim Wenders, which I haven't seen but I would like to check it out one day and hear that this version was unfaithful to the original but when you split those two aside, this film is fine on its own. The soundtrack was also a huge bestseller containing the likes of "Iris" by Goo Goo Dolls and "Angel" by Sarah McLachlan respectively. Cage and Ryan have nice chemistry together and I do like the concept of an angel wanting to become human after falling in love with one of them. While it does stray far from "Wings of Desire" from what I hear, it's still a nice watch and I would give this one a look, if you like Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan.
