The street justice eventually visited upon the film's central antagonist (Mark Cheng, dashing lawyer by day; serial rapist by night) is likely the only merit any viewer will find in this ignoble crime film and that may be pushing it. Though marketed to English speaking audiences as a sequel to "Naked Killer" (1992) the two films, despite being written and produced by Wong Jing and starring Chingmy Yau and Simon Yam, are unrelated but nevertheless of the same ilk. Hong Kong censors rejected the film's first two proposed titles: "Legal Rape" and "Super Rape."

You can probably judge the quality of this film from just reading the title, but in truth it didn't quite pan out to be the total monstrosity that I was expecting - not far off though. The storyline is reasonably credible - a cunning lawyer plotting his rape at the right moment so as to avoid any possibility of being found guilty. By targeting young naive girls and using his cunning methodology of planting evidence against them in advance of his crime, their rape claims never appear to stand up in court. He hasn't before however encountered the equally devious mind of our heroine, who through the use of her admirer and friends, seek to outwit our villain with their own mind games and booby traps! Unfortunately, the film is executed with English subtitles and a horrible pitch of Cantonese voice overs throughout, which really start to grate after the first 5 minutes! The speed of the film is very fast, making it tricky to keep up with both the action and the translations, and the dialogue is also riddled with a ridiculous amount of unnecessary sexual references, which are only occasionally comical - no doubt looking to appeal to the adolescents out there (who will no doubt also enjoy the token full frontal female shot to keep them amused too). Unsurprisingly, I've never heard of this film before but it strikes me as the sort of film which would just about qualify for the channel 5 equivalent within Chinese television channels! I'm amazed they deemed this worthy of the several sequels which have since come out, but I guess sex sells as they often say...............probably why so many poor filmmaker's are also willing to chance their luck in the industry if this is anything to go by!

Crazy story about a devious rapist/murderer/lawyer. Dated, but quite good.

With a title like that, I was expecting a lot more.

Wrongly promoted as 'Naked Killer 2', 'Raped by an Angel' is actually the better movie. With some of the same actors, the story is more engaging but beware the UK version (Naked Killer 2) is so heavily cut, it's best avoided all together. The original is fairly good in parts and has a more serious and sometimes disturbing tone, so track the the proper version.

More Cat III, Simon Yam and blue lighting.  This film isn?t nearly as tasteless as the title would have you assume (perhaps I?m getting desensitized), but is still pretty damned tasteless.  Yam plays a Triad leader who, with the help of his gal, tries to catch a wily rapist.  Very entertaining.

(AKA Naked Killer 2) Much less sexploitation but it's replaced with fairly entertaining court room drama, Triad fights and a brilliantly sick yet rather touching act of revenge. Carrie Ng and Chingmy Yau help keep your eyes glued to the screen.

Typical bad taste/uneven rhythm we can expect from a Wong Jing production. Fortunately, there are enough crazy ideas and sexiness to make it enjoyable.

released in the UK heavilly cut as Naked Killer 2, RBAA should be viewed in it's original state; this way you get about 5 to 10 minutes of body disposal gore!!!

great film, just not Simon Yam's best performance.

Raped by an Angel' reunites the oh so hot Chingmy Yau with her 'Naked Killer' co-stars Simon Yam and Carry Ng. It's kind of like what Tony Jaa's 'the Protector' was to 'Ong Bak'- it had the same actors in similar roles, but it's not a sequel. In fact, 'Raped by an Angel' spawned a myriad of sequels throughout the 90s in HK.

This movie is typical Category III trash cinema mixed with Wong Jing silliness. This time around, Chingmy Yau plays a beautiful young model doing tv advertisements to put herself through law school. The problem is, she's attracted the affections of a sociopathic lawyer with deviant sexual tastes and a penchant for rape (played by Mark Cheng). The lawyer/rapist becomes obsessed with Yau, and even moves in next door to her and her roommate, played by Carry Ng (who was the rival assassin in 'Naked Killer'). One of my all-time favorite Hong Kong actors, Simon Yam, returns here as well. He's on the opposite side of the tracks now, playing a silly role as an oblivious and over-the-top obnoxious Triad boss who is dating Chingmy and helping her take down the rapist. He's wicked funny, and great in every scene he's in- another nod-nod wink-wink role (his triad character is a movie producer as well; it's well known HK's film industry is heavily infiltrated by Triads). Dennis Chan, who played Xian in the Kickboxer movies, has a few scenes as Chingmy's university professor. It's hard to talk about details of this movie without giving key plot points away; let's just say Chigmy exacts her revenge in a truly tasteless way on the lawyer/rapist- a revenge that involves guys dressed up clown outfits in the rain, bear traps, bathtubs full of acid, and AIDS victims. It really is that bad.

I knew this film was controversial going in. Anything with 'Rape' in the title doesn't go over too well with people. What's lost on those who easily dismiss it is that this movie is ridiculous, childish, and unintentionally over-the-top, and for a Wong Jing production, you can't expect anything less. Sometimes, I even liked this movie better than 'Naked Killer', which is one of my favorite C level HK exploitation flicks ever. It's not as original as its predecessor, but there is lots to mock, and it's obvious this one doesn't take itself nearly as seriously as 'Naked Killer' did. One of the best scenes has to be the part where the rapist, after being taunted by Chingmy doing her little bra and panties dance, is hanging from the ceiling like Michael Keaton in Batman, rocking back and forth, masturbating until he shoots a wad all over the TV. In another scene, he gives Chingmy's character-who has just finished vacuuming in her bra and panties- a life-size clown doll. Just gross, silly shit like that. Yes, this movie is in extremely bad taste. Make no bones about it. You should know what you're in for and don't expect much out of it. If you watch it in the right state of mind and realize it's a retarded, immature mess of a movie and that's why it's brilliant, you'll like it.

More cheese from the cast and makers of "The Naked Killer", just nowhere near as fun.
May 19, 2008
Completely ridiculous, frequently boring, and occasionally incomprehensible - you've got to love Category III! Not sure who the "Angel" is meant to be, but the ending is quite a delight - not one for the easily offended (except in its truncated BBFC-approved UK version).

wow I wonder what it is like to get fucked by a demon
November 30, 2007
even the title sucks
October 29, 2007
billed in the UK as a follow up to naked killer its not, its a strange mix of comedy & rape like only the chinese/japanese can do.
September 16, 2007
A classic of Hong Kong bad taste. The politically correct should stay away from this film but fans of transgressive cinema should definitely give it a look.

excuse me? emphatically not interested.
