Trivia

The Scenes shot in Clacton were shot during one of the worst winters for several years. The Stormy Sea scenes were some of the roughest seas off Clacton Beach for several years and around the same time the nearby village of Jaywick was evacuated due to an Atlantic Surge that threatened to flood the area. Shortly after the movie was shot, the Helter Skelter used for the exterior shots of The Clowns Hideaway was damaged by high winds and had to be taken down as it was dangerous. It has not been replaced as yet. See more »

Angel: Clever thriller though fails to entertain
21 November 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

This British thriller tells the story of Angel, a girl in the centre of a paedophilia conspiracy that goes deep into the heart of the UK government. Her mind cracked after years of abuse she is on a killing spree and several branches of law enforcement are after her for varying reasons.

One thing I'll say about Angel is it's smart, its well written and a very clever piece of cinema. Everything that happens is entirely believable and many parts could be considered almost a dark satire.

The trouble is its not very entertaining. We witness Angel on one side and the powers that be on the other leading to the inevitable showdown but when the credits rolled I found myself unimpressed with the film.

Well written, well created and exceeds most British pieces but perhaps it just needed a bit more time to develop. Something about Angel simply missed the mark.

The Good:

Very clever little film

The Bad:

John Hannahs presence is hardly felt

What the hell is with that cover?
