Standing Ovation for Avenging Angel!!
29 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

All the stars in the universe, could not fill my living room space for what I think of the movie!! I cried and cried and applauded over just how beautiful Kevin Sorbo's performance was in his first western role!! He gave an outstanding performance!!! His ability to clearly define the inner conflict of his character was visibly reflected on the emotions he showed throughout the film, it was extremely well done on his part to show the gentle wonderful sensitive loving servant of God and the man torn between love, hate and sorrow and the need to seek vengeance and justice!! In the end Justice and Love prevailed.

Throughout the movie, we watch this man struggle to come to terms of what he has done and what he promised his wife to become!! Sam Jenkins Sorbo was amazing in the opening scene with her husband, the two of them have a deep love and respect for each others work and it clearly shows!! The entire cast of the movie was incredible, great directing and photography, outstanding work from the entire production because they truly delivered in fine HALLMARK style!!! What a great honor to have ownership of this movie along with the rest of my new Sorbo movie collection!! I simply love them all, and each one of them has touched me in a very very big way!!! I adored little actress, Joey King (Amelia), she played the perfect angel in the entire movie!! Her mother played by actress Cynthia Watros (Maggie) was perfectly suitable for the role, fell in love with her character at first sight!! She was brilliant in letting us see just how hard her life has been and just her grace and beauty it was absolutely gorgeous and stunning performance by her!! Kevin Sorbo is so right on the money because there were two instances where you just want him to kiss her, its clear that a relationship was developing but yet you just knew that the kiss was going to happen eventually and that little girl Amelia running to Kevin in the last scene just stole my heart away!! Congratulations Kevin.........this was definitely without a doubt a Winner for me!! It was highly recommended to me and I strongly recommend it to anyone who loves a great western adventure and who love and value honor and strong passionate characters in heroes who never lets a bad deed go unpunished!!
