Aroview: Hollywood resurrects Wim Wenders' classic WINGS OF DESIRE as a syrupy romantic vehicle for eligible everywoman Meg Ryan.
A leaden, fatally miscast Nicolas Cage (frozen in an expression of blank-faced 'yearning') dons the halo as an immortal angel who falls in love with the earthly Meg, a match that may spell an end to his divine trimmings and privileges. Hey, I'm a sucker for a good love story as much as the next guy, but here the affirmation of humanity is delivered with such wrecking-ball ferocity, it made me want to 'do-a-Cage' and indeed take a leap from a tall building...

1 star (Turkey) It's all eyes and long lingering glances and even then, there is zero chemistry between Cage and Ryan. He's just too wooden for me in a story with so much potential but ruined through hollywoodising. Kahuninja.~Kahuninja
