This sequel to the first "Black Angel" can be watched without any prior knowledge to the first as the only connection they share is different hit-women who take the moniker of the Black Angel. Mayo, the Black Angel in this film, has orders from cross-dressing Mama (Shingo Tsurumi from "Freeze Me") to kill a powerful Yakuza syndicate leader, but doesn't get the job done because one of his bodyguards is the same man who saved her from a rape years prior, whom she has feelings for. This exceeds Black Angel 1 by leaps and bounds, with great characterization and an intriguing captivating plot.
My Grade: B
DVD Extras: Trailers for "Zero Woman", "Wild Criminal", "Score", and "Gonin 2"
