Critic Reviews for Avenging Angelo
[The movie occasionally resembles a movie-of-the-week], complete with romantic montages set to sappy rock ballads...
Stallone cria um personagem simpático, mas o péssimo roteiro e a falta de talento do diretor transformam o filme em uma experiência lamentavelmente ruim - e Madeleine Stowe já pode se aposentar depois de oferecer a pior performance de sua carreira.
Sly - despite his seemingly unquenchable desire to prove me otherwise - deserves better than this.
Hopefully, someone will look at this film, realize that Stallone has the potential to headline a better movie again...and next time I'll be reviewing a film of his that isn't just 'endurable'
Audience Reviews for Avenging Angelo
I liked this movie alot. Stallone was great in this as was Madeline Stowe. :) Just a great movie!
This was Anthony Quinn's final film and he plays an aging Mafia Godfather (Angelo) trying to make amends with the daughter (Madeleine Stowe) that never knew him. Sly plays Frankie, loyal bodyguard to Angelo who has been watching and keeping her safe throughout her life. When Angelo is murdered, Frankie seeks out the daughter to deliver a tape but when she finds out about her real family ties, she wants to avenge Angelo's death, hence the film's title. The plot is fairly predictable but Stallone and Stowe make it watchable.
I think this was a good movie and one that I had surely not seen before. The story line was great and I could not wait to see it happen to a nicer person, ya know guy gets girl sort of thing.
