Critic Reviews



Based on 5 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
What is missing is any sort of psychological insight. Just what made Renato run? You won't find out here.
A slick, enthralling look at the life of Vallanzasca but fails to truly get under his skin.
The New York Times
Angel of Evil is bloody, yes, but loaded with generic action sequences, shouting matches and blustery sentiment. To borrow Robert Evans's famous quotation about "The Godfather," you can smell the spaghetti, but less sauce might have helped.
Though there's no shortage of mustache-quivering energy and wide-collared strutting, Angel of Evil can't separate itself enough from the pack as a character piece to be memorable as anything other than a blood-spattered timeline.
Village Voice
In many ways reminiscent of "Mesrine" but suffers greatly in comparison. It hits many of the same marks -- but the scenes unfold almost elliptically, never really building or illuminating character, and never sparking narrative momentum.
