Critic Reviews for Angel of Evil
What is missing is any sort of psychological insight. Just what made Renato run? You won't find out here.
To borrow Robert Evans's famous quotation about "The Godfather," you can smell the spaghetti, but less sauce might have helped.
Gangster clichés fly like submachine gun bullets in the Italian crime biopic "Angel of Evil," a restless and hollow rundown of '70s criminal Renato Vallanzasca.
As a tale of squabbling gangsters and prison intrigues, "Angel of Evil" is ordinary.
You can all but feel the checklist being marked off, and the viewer is never really drawn into the world or made to care what's happening.
Audience Reviews for Angel of Evil
Stylish, thrilling true-crime film based on the story of Italian mobster Renato Vallanzasca. Charismatically played by the superb Kim Rossi Stuart, there's validity in the argument that the film glamourises, sometimes even approves of his crimes. But there's real technical skill in front and behind of the camera and as a piece of cinema it's quite something.
Kim Rossi Stuart has had enough similar maniac roles already, I think, especially when comes across unimpressive features, like this one.
