Trivia

A sequel was planned but never materialized. In some parts of Europe, the 1992 film Juice was released as Angel Town 2, but it remains unknown whether that film started off as the intended sequel or not. See more »

Alternate Versions

Even though the Finnish videotape is heavily cut (almost all of the violence is cut), there are 2 scenes that are different from the uncut US-DVD. Both of these scenes contain nudity, and have been substituted with less-offensive scenes in the US-DVD. The scenes are Angel Diaz "lending" his mate's girlfriend in the trailer and the scene where Gruner is threating Angel in his apartment with a knife. See more »

* OUT OF FIVE
13 July 2003 | by bronsonskull72See all my reviews

Olivier Gruner stars as Jacques a foreign exchange college student who takes on and single handedly wipes out a Mexican street gang in this obnoxious and racist film which is so horrible that it's laughable. Bad acting, bad plot and bad fight choreography make Angel Town a Turkey.
