‘Fallen Angels Murder Club: Heroes and Felons’ Review: Film includes no suspense yet curiosity was maintained
‘Fallen Angels Murder Club: Heroes and Felons’ is the second part of the movie series Fallen Angels Murder Club. The first part, 'Fallen Angels Murder Club: Friends to Die For,' introduces us to all of the characters in the film and gives us a sense of what the film is all about. The members of the "Fallen Angels Murder Club" must have two traits - a love for books and a criminal record. The genre of books they read is a murder mystery now in their real life they are solving the murder mysteries.
Being the second film, this movie offers two murder mysteries for the audience to solve. Members of the Fallen Angels Murder Club investigate the killing of one of their own. When a journalist reporting on the crime also dies, Hollis (Toni Braxton) finds herself at the heart of the investigation. Although it appears at first that the two killings are unrelated, you will finally connect the dots with Hollis Morgan.
The film picks off where the first part left off. Hollis and the other members at Jeffery Wallace's (Rob Stewart) funeral. Yes, the angles are already starting to work on a strategy to solve Jeffery's murder. Seriously, what is the point of having detectives in the movie if the book club members are going to solve every murder? This time, the film focuses on the lives of other Fallen Angels Murder Club members beyond Hollis.
This movie, like the previous one, is also broken into ACTS. This time, unlike the last, each ACT will be devoid of its essence. The pace of the movie is quite slow this time, I mean everybody eventually knows the murderer, but still, they are trying to find more clues and proof, so by this, I can say the pace of the movie was quite slow and there is no a pinch of suspense yet curiosity was maintained throughout.
In comparison to the last movie, the plot of this one did not involve any suspense. The audience will finally figure out who is actually the murderer in the movie. Toni Braxton's acting is superb as always, and it was a joy to see her as a wise woman doing her best to bring justice to her friends. Kelly Hu's acting amazed me as well, as she pretended to be a woman grieving over the murder of her husband, but her face was truly something different, so I can say she gave a fantastic portrayal.
'Fallen Angels Murder Club: Friends to Die For', in my opinion, is more entertaining to watch than this latest and last part, 'Fallen Angels Murder Club: Heroes and Felons.' Overall, when it comes to both movies as a series, they are worth watching since they will develop your interest in murder mysteries. The film is written, executively produced and directed by Rhonda Baraka.
