Thoughts on Lost Angel
Thoughts – Lost Angel is a mystery thriller following a young woman looking to solve the mystery around her sister’s death. This is a thriller that wants to look to answer questions that nobody else is even trying to get to the bottom off, which would seem to make the pacing feel awfully slow, as it is go to one location, ask a question or two, communicate with the ghost helping her, getting more clues. It all comes off feeling strange, never becoming intense and performed in a way that doesn’t make much engaging. Lost Angel ends up feeling like a flat thriller, that never manages to pull the audience in, never hitting the levels that will make it engaging and falls flat when we needed to see a bigger impact happening.
Final Thoughts – Lost Angel is a thriller that never really gets going.
