I had very low expectations because the movie was so low rated and Megan Foxx was in it and I wasn't so convinced of her talent so far. But Mickey Rourke and Bill Murray in it made me curious and so I watched it and was very surprised how much I liked it. Until the end where Megan takes Mickey on a flying tour, the movie was a little confusing for me in some parts but then the end reveals what the movie is all about. Mickey flies over his dead body and finally realizes that he is dead. So in the beginning Mickey is not saved by these strange men in white clothes, but he is shot. He is dead but doesn't realize it. He meets his "angel" which needs to fulfill the task of bringing him to the aftermath, but Mickey can't let go of his human life on earth yet. Bill Murray is the force who symbolized Mickey's inability to let go and leave earth, because Bill wants to take away his angel which Mickey needs to travel to "the other side". But Mickey in the end is able to take back "his angel" and finally he is also able to let go of his human life, which is shown in his free will to jump from the roof. Now that Mickey is really ready to go the Angel takes him (now also the Angel is ready, she suddenly is brave enough to fly) and while Mickey sees his dead body lying on the floor, he not only realizes that he is dead but he smiles which means he now can accept it. He learned to fall in love with his angel which was needed to make this journey. In the end everything makes sense and leaves you with a smile on your face. I love this movie, esp. the story, but also the actors, the atmosphere and even Megan Foxx. :-)
