Been done, but still good.
22 October 2001 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

While Earth Angel's plot is not entirely unique (Heavenly Kid, Disney's Susie Q, among others I'm sure), the story line was done well. Older, yet familiar actors (Cindy Williams, Erik Estrada, Mark Hamill) make it a very watchable movie. "Newcomers" Rainbow Harvest (who bears a resemblance to Wynona Ryder in this one), and Cathy Podewell do magnificent jobs as "typical" teens for their time. Also of note is Roddy McDowall as Mr Tatum, pergatory's detention officer, who plays a pivotal, yet fairly minor role. So sit back, suspend disbelief, and just enjoy a very nicely made movie. P.S. Hope this doesn't spoil it, but Angela disappears immediately after completing her "mission", and this leaves no opportunity for Cindy to thank her. This would have been the only thing I would have changed.
