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
After his father has his head blown off and his fiancé dry-humped as well as killed before his eyes as he was tied up, beat to a pulp and forced to watch, Alex (World Champion kick-boxer Curtis Bush) is nursed back to health by a Vietnam Vet, who has his own beef with the mafioso, who trains him to become a lean-mean revenge taking machine as the avenging vigilante, 'the Dark Angel' Clearly this film's of the 'so bad, it's good' variety and is so unintentionally laughably inept in pretty much every aspect of the movie (except the fight scenes that are at least passable) that one can't help but crack a smile at the sheer awfulness of it all.
Eye Candy: Kim Reynolds shows off her T&A (and 'blink & you'll miss it' muff)
My Grade:as a real film I'd rate it as a 1, but i'll add an extra star or two (or three) just for the (brain dead)entertainment factor alone.
Shock-o-Rama DVD Extras: 3 unintentionally humorous news clips about Curtis Bush; Trailers for "Bacterium", "Chainsaw Sally", "Dark Chamber", "Drainiac", "Millennium Crisis", "Bite Me!", "Creature from the Hillbilly Lagoon", "Feeding the masses", "Prison-a-go go", "Screaming Dead", "Shock-o-rama", "Sinful", & "Skin Crawl";the DVD also contains a second movie "Canvas of Blood"
