Storyline

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 Anonymous

Good Gore, But Unbelievably Boring and Poorly Made
16 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A kickboxer's father and girlfriend are kidnapped and murdered, with the blame being placed on the kickboxer. After an initial fight with the local mob boss where his butt is handed to him, the kickboxer teams up with a crippled Vietnam vet, who toughens him up. Now, as the Dark Angel, who cruises the streets stopping crime Ninja Turtle style.

Allegedly, this film took five years to make. If true, that is a sad fact. It's just about the most poorly put together film I've seen in a while, at least one that received distribution. Aside fro ma few brief gore sequences, the movie is boring and a real drag on anyone who views it.

Nobody in this film knows how to act. The only person with any Hollywood potential at all is Kim Reynolds, who plays Cassie. She had great presence, and it didn't hurt that she was fairly attractive. But seeing as this film was made in 1997 and she has no other screen credits as of 2009, I think she missed her window.

This film doesn't need a long review. It's just not worth watching and the review could be summed up in one word: rubbish. The DVD comes with a bonus film, "Canvas of Blood", which I'm sure is just as bad. I didn't even bother to check it out because it will be a while before I can sit through that much agony again... even with the assistance of Grand MacNish Scotch whiskey (which "comes in its trademark bottle that just asks to be picked up and poured").
