Based on a true story, this action-packed, hard-hitting depiction of the infamous Ashley gang - who terrorized the southeast in the 1920's - also illustrates a desperate love between two people destined for destruction.
Molly is now a police photographer in a relationship with a DJ. Her old friend from the streets gets in touch with her. She's in town with a band and hot for the lead singer. Her friend gets murdered and Molly turns up at the scene to photograph the body. So, Molly again assumes the identity of Angel and hits the club scene to search for the killer - this time as a groupie rather than a prostitute. Written by

Well, I've been a life long fan of the original ANGEL trilogy. Even place the original ANGEL in my top 10 favorite films. Admittedly, AVENGING ANGEL kinda sucked, but is still enjoyable in its own stupid little way. ANGEL IV, however, is one incredibly long and boring movie with no production values, a stupid plot and a cast of actors who clearly don't want to be in this movie.
Every set design in this film is just that...a set...even the alleys! Cardboard walls...bad movie lighting...There even seems to be an echo in every room....yuk! The cast has several good names, but all are completely wasted. Sam Phillips, whom I adore, is practically asleep in her line delivery, and Darlene Vogel (as a suddenly blonde ANGEL) simply looks embarassed throughout. Suspense? None. Action? None. Interest? None. You're average Skinemax movie at 2 am looks more professional.
On a side note of curiosity, why did this become an action series when the original was a psycho-stalker film?
Rewatch the original, or better yet, go buy the boxed trilogy set on DVD and forget this installment even exists.
