The Third Book of Enoch gives attention to the unfallen watchers. The use of the term "watchers" is common in the Book of Enoch. The term irin is primarily applied to disobedient watchers who numbered a total of , and of whom their leaders are named, but equally Aramaic iri "watcher" singular is also applied to the obedient archangels who chain them, such as Raphael 1 Enoch They soon begin to lust for human women and, at the prodding of their leader Samyaza , defect en masse to illicitly instruct humanity and procreate among them. The offspring of these unions are the Nephilim , savage giants who pillage the earth and endanger humanity.
Samyaza and his associates further taught their human charges arts and technologies such as weaponry, cosmetics, mirrors, sorcery , and other techniques that would otherwise be discovered gradually over time by humans, not foisted upon them all at once. Eventually God allows a Great Flood to rid the earth of the Nephilim, but first sends Uriel to warn Noah so as not to eradicate the human race. The watchers are bound "in the valleys of the Earth" until Judgment Day Jude verse 6 says that these fallen angels are kept "in everlasting chains under darkness" until Judgement Day.
And these are the names of their leaders: These are their chiefs of tens.

Orlov, while quoting the text as saying three,  remarks in a footnote that some manuscripts put them at or even myriads. Chapter 29, referring to the second day of creation, before the creation of human beings, says that "one from out the order of angels"  or, according to other versions of 2 Enoch, "one of the order of archangels "   or "one of the ranks of the archangels"  "conceived an impossible thought, to place his throne higher than the clouds above the earth, that he might become equal in rank to [the Lord's] power.
And [the Lord] threw him out from the height with his angels, and he was flying in the air continuously above the bottomless.

According to Jonathan Ben-Dov of the University of Haifa, the myth of the watchers began in Lebanon when Aramaic writers tried to interpret the imagery on Mesopotamian stone monuments without being able to read their Akkadian text.

Written by KGF Vissers. Really enjoyed this movie. It is not in the least bit predictable, as so many thrillers seem to be.

Kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. Many threads are woven throughout and they tie up towards the end of the movie so that most of our questions are answered. He is a complex character who is introducted to us in stages- as the story unravels so does his life. Reeves surprises in his portrayal of a psycho serial killer. He plays this guy with an eerie realism that see him really well cast here. We hear so many poor reviews of this guy's acting but I can't figure it. We follow the agent in a chase against time to stop the madness.
This movie is not run of mill. I highly recommend it.
