Touched By An Angel this is not!
Created, co-written, and directed by Drew Casson (who also stars as the lead), Divinity is a stylish sci-fi web series about warfare among a powerful group of warrior angels.
An ambitious 7-part web series, it was independently produced and made with an almost nonexistent budget.
In spite of these production constraints, Mr. Casson and his crew have created a dynamic work hallmarked by dazzling visuals, good overall acting, and a pulse-pounding score.
The series opens spectacularly as we witness a man literally falling from the sky to the earth.
This is how we are introduced to Primus (Casson), a powerful angel who has been sent from heaven to end an angelic rebellion lead by former archangel Decem (portrayed with equal parts menace and charisma by Carl Smith).

My only criticism with the project is the editing of the well-choreographed interior fight scenes. The use of a hand-held cam makes it difficult to discern exactly what is going on.
Still, this is a minor complaint as other visual effects - such as when the angels take flight - will make you wonder, "how the hell did they do that with no budget?!"
Divinity is an impressive work from a promising, young filmmaker. I think we will be seeing great things from Drew Casson.
