Angels Vs Humans : Dominion TV Show
I am always bit skeptical when TV series is based on film, there are so many things that can go wrong and ruin my impression of movie. Ok, we are not talking about big blockbuster movie but i think many know Legion (2010), it has popular plot thus it's hard to avoid it when you are looking for action, mystery, science-fiction genre. For those who didn't watch it ill just tell plot shortly, film starred Paul Bettany as the archangel Michael who arrives on Earth to face off against an invading horde of dark angels. Now let your imagination do the rest J.
Series continue plot 25 years after "The Extinction War," when an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, waged war against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, chose to side with humanity. Rising out of the ashes of this long battle are newly fortified cities which protect human survivors. At the center of the series is the city of Vega, a glistening empire that has formed from the ruins of what was once Las Vegas.
On Syfy website they explained it bit more:
On November 21st 2013, the angel invasion began. Lower angels claimed possession of unwilling human bodies, then launched a war to wipe out all of humanity. The attack was invisible, insidious, terrifying and sudden.
Historians have dubbed the devastation and bloodshed that followed “The Extermination War.”
Over the next seventeen years, more than six billion lives were lost and many of the great cities were either reduced to rubble or deserted. In the Battle of Shanghai alone, 200 million lives were lost. The 2018 Assault on the Eastern Seaboard wiped out every metropolitan center between Boston and Charleston. Communications with Europe were lost in 2022, Russia and the rest of Asia the year after.
This show is not something extra special, but i might say it is worth to be mentioned because it has good plot, action , visual effects , spies , conspiracy and lot of other things that keep you watching and wanting to know more about story and how will it end. For now i will not say my judgment, we are still on start of 1. Season so i will wait the end of season.
