Quotes

[first lines]
Sweet Pea: Everyone has an Angel. A Guardian who watches over us. We can't know what form they'll take. One day, old man. Next day, little girl. But don't let appearances fool you, they can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they're not here to fight our battles, but to whisper from our heart. Reminding that it's us. Its everyone of us who holds power over the world we create.

Great action film. Delicious eye candy.
3 March 2020 | by tikibear69See all my reviews

Great action film. Delicious eye candy. The last 5 minutes detracts in my opinion. Setting that aside enjoy it for what it is. It's part musical. Part video game trailer. Part revenge justice. Lots of girl power.
