3 January 2003 | by (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I am always up for checking out a movie I never heard before, and seeing Robert Patrick in the credits, who would not be a little curious to see the T-1000 in another movie? Boy was I disappointed ... ANGELS is garbage and a confusing mess for everyone. The 'star' actors looked like they could not care less and key characters were poorly introduced and wasted. You could put cardboard cut-outs on the set and you would not know the difference.

If you survived the first twenty minutes without asking what the heck was going on, consider yourself gifted. ANGELS begins with two main stories, one of a mayor covering his past, and of a twin brother, returning home and continuing the search for his lost bro, went missing 20 some-odd years ago.

The real stars are Ashbrook and Rutherford, who mindlessly plod their way through the script looking pretty while acting pretty stupid. Scheider and Patrick should be ashamed of themselves as both look blank faced and unimpressive in every shot. The script a disappointing, predictable mess, the direction and camerawork positively abominable (I never thought I would say that in a review) and the production a laugh, it is no surprise here why ANGELS took two to three years before hitting the video stores.
