Storyline

Tony wants to be a hitman for the Mafia, but first he has to learn from a master. Enter Stevie California-cool, eats veggie burgers and quotes Neitzche. Tony may not agree with Stevie's style, but he has to complete his training so he can go back and kill the Mafia's accountant, who's about to turn state's evidence. His final test: kill whoever is randomly picked out of the yellow pages. His target: Angel Chaste. Angel works the graveyard shift at a mortuary. She thinks a doll is her baby. Her mother left when she was little. Basically, Angel has PROBLEMS. When Tony, Angel and Stevie collide, it will change all of their lives. Written by Mad Meg <mad_meg@hotmail.com>

Goofs

Angel's gun keeps changing. She buys a large squareish looking gun with a silver slide and a black body. But when she confronts Stevie in the diner, she has a much smaller all-silver gun (this gun is identical to the gun that nick carries in the final chase/gunfight sequence near the end of the movie). Later, Angel picks up Nick's gun (the all-silver one) because hers is out of bullets, but in the scenes leading up to that moment, sometimes she's carrying her black/silver gun and sometimes she's already carrying the all-silver gun.

A good Belushi film
26 October 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Amazingly the little known Kyle Chandler is now playing a major role in Peter Jackson's King Kong. So perhaps now Angel's Dance will get minor recognition. Featuring Backbeat's Sheryl Lee and the jobbing James Belushi (as potential victim and professional hit-man respectively) this small B-picture is surprisingly watchable and at times darkly humouress.

Opening with Jon Polito (in a familiar role established better in Miller's Crossing) sending a trainee hit-man to go with the best in the business to learn the ropes. For 'The Rose' (Belushi) this means teaching Tony (Chandler) to let go of any morals he once had and picks a random name from a phone book as the target. Neither one of them could predict that the target (Lee) would fight back with terminal force.

Offbeat, quirky and with some decent action scenes (and some good costumes to boot) this is yet another film that won't be seen by most, but will be appreciated by most that do. Surely Belushi is long over due another half decent role like this, perhaps Tarantino will remember him in years to come...
