Ambitious, offbeat but often dull Moon Lee vehicle
4 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

Although it's nice to see movie stars who are known primarily for one thing try to expand their repertoire and do something more, this sometimes comes at the expense of what we want to see from them in the first place - in Moon Lee's case, kicking, punching, flipping and generally brutalizing people. Not that she doesn't do some of that in "Revenge of Angel", but not nearly enough - in the first half her character could almost be called supporting. She plays a Chinese Opera artist who gets killed in a fire caused by a rich local figure when she rejects his sexual advances. Her ghost has been waiting 20 years for revenge - and now may be the right time to get it, with the help of a young male Opera actor who falls in love with her (in her ghost form). This is certainly one of Moon's most ambitious roles, as she gets to be more serious, romantic, angelic and at the same time hard than usual. She pulls it off, and I don't think I've ever seen her look more beautiful (her period costumes and flowing long hair help). Her fighting - particularly her kicks - are a joy to watch, but the action does get too supernatural for my tastes, with flying around and superpowers. The script keeps changing its own rules about how much contact ghosts can have with the living world, what are their strengths and weaknesses, etc. By the end very little makes sense, but Moon Lee's beauty and skill shine through it all. ** out of 4.
