"Raped by an Angel", also known as "Naked Killer 2" is a formulaic Hong Kong sex-and-violence movie. It is not as good as many others. The acting is wooden, the violence muted and unrealistic, the consensual sex scenes dull and devoid of even the slightest hint of passion, and you can almost see the actors yawning during the rape scenes. This is supposed to be a sex-violence-revenge thriller, but the plot is thin and devoid of suspense. The only interesting part was a courtroom scene in which the rapist is one of the lawyers. The movie has a category III rating (equivalent to our NC17) but is pretty tame by Cat-III standards. The several rape scenes dubbed "explicit" and "prolonged" in some other reviews are neither. They consist mostly of seeing the naked backside of the rapist standing up (briefly), seeing him leer as he unwraps a condom, and then seeing what is supposed to be a look of pain on a closeup of the woman's face, but actually looks more like indigestion. The rapes themselves are implicit, and hidden by potted plants, furniture, and blankets. The English subtitles are below average even for a Hong Kong quickie, and provide most of the comic relief.
