5-Time World Kickboxing Champion Curtis Bush plays Alex Hunter, an up-and-coming kickboxer whose fiancé and father are brutally murdered by the city's cold-blooded and sadistic crime boss, and he himself tortured and left for dead. Discovered and nursed back to health by a wheelchair-bound Vietnam Vet who becomes his mentor, Alex is transformed into an avenging streetfighter - a one man vigilante and skull-cracking killing machine known as...The Dark Angel. Using controlled fury and a hunger for revenge to seek bloody retribution against low-life criminal scum, Alex's ultimate target is the untouchable crime boss. But a beautiful tabloid journalist who seeks to uncover the true identity of The Dark Angel is hot on the trail, yet that won't stop Alex from exacting his "eye for an eye". First, he must enter the Arena of Death and destroy one-by-one the most savage and deadly fighters imported from around the world by the crime boss. It WILL be the most thrilling, bone-cracking showdown ... Written by
Here we have a fun, no-budget action movie that cannot be taken seriously. In it, real life kickboxing champ Curtis Bush seems to have a great life going for him (complete with a very beautiful, yet ATROCIOUSLY acted, lady and a class where he teaches kids his art of kicking ass). Suddenly, his wife is gangbanged and killed, his dad's head gets blown apart, and he is beaten and left for dead after being forced to watch the whole ordeal. Well, I'm sure you know what that means! With the help of a crippled elderly guy who himself was victimized by the same gangsters who were responsible and clearly has some sort of gray paint in his hair that's smudged on the side of his face, our seething hero is nursed back to health and begins to learn some much-needed street smarts to go along with his deadly martial arts skills. Next, people die horribly, splattered every which way by the masked nutball who quickly becomes known as the Dark Angel (or the Psycho Kickboxer, if you prefer)! Blood and gore galore! A D-grade action tour-de-force and a must-see for fans of any of the good ole trashy, ultraviolent, no-budget cinema!
