Painful to watch, apart from a few good fight scenes
5 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Unfortunately I watched an extremely poor print of "Midnight Angel", with subtitles that were unreadable more often than not (even the cheesiest dubbing would have been preferable, in this case), so my impressions of this movie may have been (negatively) influenced by that. But even after trying to put that aside, "Midnight Angel" is almost physically painful to watch. The story, about a female masked vigilante who is actually the sister of two policewomen (the eldest being played by Yukari Oshima), is a complete mess, and the action is FAR too sparse (it takes 40 minutes for Yukari to even start fighting!). Worse of all, there are times when the film tries to be funny, and fails miserably. The only thing that partly redeems it are a few very fast and intense fight scenes, which mostly come in the last 20 minutes. Oshima becomes pretty consumed with rage by the end, and the beautiful blonde real-life martial arts champion Kim Maree Penn (perhaps most famous for her fight against Cynthia Khan in "In The Line Of Duty V") shows up (out of nowhere) as a bad girl. These fight scenes are worth seeing - but I fear many viewers will not have lasted long enough to see them. *1/2 out of 4.
