|I am sorry, I didn't like this at all. The cutscene editor scenes didn't work at times (going through the tree) or (really sped up view of the Highschool. The color correction was too intense at some scenes and too neutral at other scenes. Why would Jesus Christ bring her back to life? Moreover, why is Jesus Christ even a part of this story? Doesn't he have thousands of other people to take care of to, if he exists. Not only that, but really? Nobody ever died before her so he wants her to be the Angel of Life? I think God would have more authority there, plus I doubt that nobody else in the history of mankind hasn't taken their lives until this point. Final Rating: 4/10 for effort.||CosimoValuta|
|Routess had a great concept, and a great chance to make something great. Even though he didn't quite live the movie up to what it could be, it wasn't bad. The visuals weren't bad, the music was good, but the story and the ending ruined it for me. Routess has the potential to be one of the next great ROBLOXiwood directors. But he will need to do a better job with the writing the next time. Angel of Life gets a 6.425/10 from me.||AlmightyNoob|
