I certainly view Angel Heart as being director Alan Parker's statement about his deep-rooted hatred for blacks. I mean, Parker certainly went well out of his way to emphasize racism in this picture and make blacks out to be the stupidest, most gullible, voodoo-loving idiots imaginable._____ Angel Heart is definitely one of those frustratingly confused and convoluted stories that (in all of its demented confusion) gives away its surprise, twist ending far too early in the story._____ And, once again, I'm absolutely baffled about what brought actor Mickey Rourke his vast popularity in the movies of the 1980s. He sure didn't have a likable screen-presence nor did he have any noteworthy talent to speak of. I just don't get it._____ Yeah. OK. I will admit that Angel Heart did contain some very striking imagery, at times, and the fairly explicit sex scene that took place between the Epiphany and Angel characters was quite startling to behold, but, with that said, this film was a certified limp-dick as far as its "noir" aspect was concerned. And, yes, it certainly fell flat on its face when it came to the impact of its horror element, as well.

Great movie. Mood piece. No idea why the low ratings from some. If you don't like the genre don't watch it.

Cheezy. Bizarre. Poor writing. A paycheck movie for De Niro and Rourke. 1 1/2 stars for their performances (mainly Mickey's).

I think that this is an excellent movie. There are a couple of inconsistencies but if I ignore them I can enjoy the movie. Yes it is graphic and bizarre and difficult to understand. That is why I like it.

This movie whilst entertiaining and exciting to watch has little to do with the real world of voodoo.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

I beg to differ I love this movie! Mickey Rouke is a stud and a great actor! :)

This is a slow, draggy movie, which near the end gets really sick, gross, I turned it off before it finished. Not a good movie.
