Meet six women and a teenage girl who never expected to risk their lives fighting for justice. A schoolteacher had seen one too many kids succumb to drugs. A Las Vegas entertainer learned her brother had been beaten by a drug pusher. A martial arts teacher knew how insidious drugs were among children. A top model knew that drugs were destroying her life. A stunt driver was in shock when her brother overdosed - on drugs! Add a nosy schoolgirl and a policewoman with a perm, and you've got the Angels Brigade. These women (and the girl, too) are sexy, smart - and dangerous! Just ask the right-wing militia these ladies have destroyed. But the evil fat cats pushing drugs to kids? Not even they are a match for these vengeful vixens. They just say POW! to drug pushers.

No way is this ripping off Charlie's Angels, so don't even think it!
I saw this movie as part of an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. The movie is absolutely a ripoff of Charlie's Angels and that being said, I was never a fan of that show, so a vastly inferior ripoff that this film was almost makes my eyes bleed! Horrible and annoying actresses as the good guys and a bunch of television show stars thrown in for 'comedy'. You know it is bad when Alan Hale does the best job and has the most dignified role of the cameos! Then there is Jack Palance, a guy whose looks and voice frightens small children, animals and quite a few adults being one upped by a thrown together super group or something. Seriously? How does that happen? One girl can swing a sword, one can drive a motorcycle, one is a cop, another is a teacher, then there is a singer, and a former junkie...why, how would any organized crime unit survive this onslaught? I really just find that there is nothing to like about this movie except maybe that you get to see the ladies in swimsuits and stuff, but it never lasts long and this gals are not in the league of other ladies from this time frame.
The story opens with the girls attacking a drug compound and then the film flashes back to how their little team formed. The flashback pretty much takes up most of the film. A drug dealer has been pushing dope on kids, one of the kids is so hooked he bashes in the head of the dealer and steals his stuff! Jack Palance and the dealer gets the drugs back and administers a beating to the kid. Then we are introduced to a Las Vegas lounge singer and it turns out it was her brother that got the beat down! A school teacher convinces her and some other ladies to form a group to take down these drug kingpins because calling the police would have apparently been too difficult. Much easier to steal weapons, customize a van and formulate overly complicated plans to take out the drug dealers and considering how easily they fall, they probably could have just called the cops.
This made for a pretty good episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. I was surprised it was not better as I usually like a good Mike episode as he rarely disappoints, but it was just a pretty good one. I was saddened that they completely whiffed on an easy riff as at the end of the film the main drug lord is shot in the shoulder, falls into a pool and promptly dies. The one young girl got hit in a worse place and was fine, but this dude gets hit and just drops dead in the water. No remark at all and I was completely surprised by the absence of a riff commenting on this.
So this film was bad. Really bad. I was thinking that perhaps it was a television pilot or something, but no, it was a movie apparently. It did leave an opening for a sequel, but I am going to take a wild guess and say there was not one. About the best part of the film was the ending credits as they did manage to play a catchy tune during them, but that is about it. Most of the film, as I have said, is just a flashback and it takes a while to catch up. Then it is time for the final showdown where you know our girls are going to come out on top! Though, in reality, they probably would have been gunned down in their headquarters. Mob and drug kingpins, are not quite inept enough to be taken down by seven gals with spunk...
