Storyline

Lynette Walden and Chris Mulkey star in this action-packed ride through the sexy and dangerous world of flesh for sale and murder for hire. Harley-riding Angel (Lynette Walden) plays to win in her fight against a slavery and prostitution ring that abuses young runaways -- It's a life-and-death game in which video-games hold the clues, and the only way to win is to kill without conscience. The chill of each killing drives Angel into the arms of anonymous lovers -- a desperate attempt for affection -- but her ex-boyfriend George (Chris Mulkey) is watching ... In a demented rage he stalks her through her steamy video-arcade reality. But when the game is over and the high score is counted, will Angel be able to walk away? [from VHS cover 1992 CROWN INTERNATIONAL PICTURES, INC.] Written by Claude M. Cassano

Remarkably forgettable
30 January 2006 | by JohannSee all my reviews

This little nothing is about a female assassin named Angel. Angel has to kill five scumbags who are involved in a child prostitution ring. She uses a Wather PPK with a silencer (hence the title of the film) to eliminate low-lifes. We know that she has a shady past, but this really isn't explored too much in the film. She's being tracked by another assassin who is probably her former boss and possibly lover. The film pretty much just leaves it at that. What's really lame is that she uses a video game called "The Silencer" (again, an illusion to the title of the film) to receive information about her assignments. Her former boss/lover/whatever he used to be uses the same video game to keep tabs on where she is.

The acting is sub-par. The plot seems like it was launched by a group of pot smokers in some kind of late night brain storming session. I can see it now "dude, we should make a movie about, like, this female assassin who uses the James Bond gun and, like, is being chased by her old boss. Whouldn't that be cool?" The script was a crime and the title sequences (which was supposed to be from the video game they play) would have Saul Bass turning in his grave. There's a cameo by Morton Downey Jr. that is pretty much the only highlight of the film. Unless you can spare a few brain cells and really don't care what you watch, forget this one.
