My review of Gabriel's Inferno. Warning for people who haven't seen the original, you might want to keep reading after this first post. This is an online review of the TV series version of the movie, featuring John Travolta and Gabriel Byrne.
Gabriel's Inferno is the third film in the TV series Gabriel starring John Travolta. It is the fifth TV series movie in the Gabriel's Arc trilogy. The TV series takes place after the events of the first three movies, although the story is still in motion in some cases. In this film, Gabriel is still with his friends in hell, trying to locate a way out.
This movie follows the story of Bobby Singer, the main character. As I said earlier, he is one of the main characters of the series, so this film should give you an idea of what is to come. This is also a sequel to the first Gabriel's Inferno. So you will know what to expect in terms of plot twists.
As the story continues, the people of the Arc have become disenchanted with the traditional Arc symbolism, and they reject it as a symbol of hope and salvation. So they began to claim that a leader, and I'm not talking about Michael, who is also known as the Prince of Darkness. But one of the leaders named a prophet called Dr. Bernard. Dr. Bernard is portrayed by Jim Caviezel.
The series is based on the work of Thomas McGuane, a famous New York City writer who had been told to publish an unauthorized biography of a character in one of his books. So McGuane came up with the idea of combining all the characters from his own novels, into one series. In this way he hoped to create a unified world view, although it is really a synthesis of all the stories told in his books.
For me, the series doesn't rely solely on the supernatural and the mystical aspects but also uses the natural elements of nature. In this way the whole trilogy builds upon itself, and the entire saga builds upon itself. Also, I think that the overall theme of the series is as important as the supernatural. All the characters should be seen as victims of their own circumstances.
Because I am a film buff, I think this TV series is very good. I don't think the plot twists are too hard to follow, nor do I think there is any way for me to figure out what is going on. I watched the whole series in one sitting, so if you think that the characters are confusing you, then you can't say the same about me. I have read every book in the series, and I also watched the movies, so I feel confident in giving my opinion.
I gave a negative rating to the TV series version of the original Gabriel's Inferno. But as I said earlier, I don't think it is a bad movie, I just didn't like the TV series version of the story. But I still recommend it for people who like pure horror movies. If you liked the TV series, you will like this movie as well.
