Directed by Robert Vincent O’Neil. With Betsy Russell, Rory Calhoun, Susan Tyrrell, Ossie Davis. Molly, former prostitute, has managed to leave her street life with help from Lt. Andrews. She studies law and leads a normal life. When Andrews is killed by a brutal gang, she returns to the streets as Angel to find his killers.
A sequel to a movie that was pretty ok, this second movie is followed up by two other films, but among all four of the films, the lead role is played by four different people. What’s weird about it though is that all the secondary characters are returning actors, so I do wonder what the politics were.
Other than the casting oddities, “Avenging Angel” is another perfectly ok film set is the rough and tumble 80’s, though this time it’s a little bit zannier and a little bit wackier.
