Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: It's an interesting idea to show angels and demons involved in the war. There's a moving moment at the end when Uriel grants them a miracle that leads them to the runway.

Con: The story is heavily loaded with as-you-know-Bob infodumps. Page after page of them. The regular dialogue feels very unnatural as well. Finally, the message overwhelms the story--to the extent there actually is a story.
