Bell's charm and finesse with a right hook help elevate Angel of Death from being a mundane straight-to-DVD offering.
Audience Reviews for Ed Brubaker's Angel of Death
Hmmm... I was surprised by the level of enjoyment I got out of this action packed, noir-y, comic bookesque, but did have some definent problems with it as well. Perhaps most importantly, and something I was never really able to get past. There were some terrible casting decisions here. Many of the actors just arent capable of really pulling off the roles they were given. Jake Abel is my main target for that complaint, but there were a few others as well. Also this movie feels like it really wants to be 2-4 already existing movies all at the same time. That's fine, just don't be surprised when you're movie doesn't have as much of a shelf life as the movies your emulating. All that aside I did find myself enjoying this movie anyways. It does have great production values, is fast paced and with non stop action. Also short and sweet so doesn't overstay it's welcome. A good decision as my complaints with this film are pretty serious. If it dragged on for 2 hours my rating would be lower, but for what it is I would say its still above average, despite it's flaws. Worth a watch for sure for action fans.
Hooray for Zoe Bell! And Ed Brubaker! Let's hope their next collaboration isn't quite so familiar as this one is.
