AAhhhhh, Fallen. By Wicked Pictures this is an adult movie I’ve wanted since I first heard about it summer 2009. Finally I got my grubby paws on it thanks to Better Sex And, probably because of how much suspense was built into waiting for it, it disappointed me. At least a little.
Fallen is the story of an angel who falls from the graces of God. So, this movie is her story to redemption. If you so choose. A pretty nifty feature of this movie is that you can choose Angel’s destiny. Played by Jessica Drake, you can have her end the movie happy, going to the afterlife, or seeking vengeance.
There are many sex scenes in this movie, as well as a memorable half hour long orgy sequence. The sets are beautiful and work incredibly well with the theme of the movie as does the music. The costumes as well are amazing, as Wicked Pictures does tend to exceed at. I think however, that my favorite part of the movie is the cinematography. There is excellent work with lighting, special effects and camera angles.
The story, of course, is loose as this is a porn. They work the sex in quite well, with Angel searching for love, even if all she gets is the physical kind. Eventually she runs into a man she feels a connection to, Keith. Eventually it turns into a bit of a romance, which is okay.
I have to say though, I have a couple big complaints. First, it’s LONG. The run time is about 3 hours. Especially for a porn, that’s a LONG time. Secondly there are a handful of scenes where the audio is not sinked with the video. There’s at least one scene where I found it painfully obvious the audio was dubbed over and what her mouth was saying isn’t what you were hearing.
While there is a cool feature you can use where you can choose to have music and vocals, just vocals or just music during the sex scenes, I can’t see how that would cause the disjointed audio issue.
Ultimately, I was disappointed in this movie. I’m not sure if I can adequately explain why, perhaps only because so much went into wanting it, that it had gotten built into more than it really is. Plus, the “choose the destiny” feature I really feel should have come at the beginning. You activate it via the “set up” screen, and click “on” or “off”. If you just click “play movie” you get the “afterlife” ending. By clicking the choose destiny on, I expected to perhaps see different things happen during the movie, make choices for which way it was going to do “during” the movie, or something. All you get is the screen to choose an ending at the very end of the movie. While that is quite novel, especially for an adult film, it was a bit disappointing.
All in all, I think I give Fallen. a 3 out of 5. I feel that it would be a much better movie had I not wanted it for so long, and thus built it into something more than it is. This is a movie that I DO highly recommend if you enjoy triple x rated stories. Just be prepared for the incredible length of the film. Thanks Better Sex !!!
