Product Description

Action superstar Sylvester Stallone stars as Frankie Delano, a tough-as-nails bodyguard who vows toprotect the beautiful Jennifer Barrett (Madeleine Stowe), after her father, mafia kingpin Angelo (Anthony Quinn), is gunned down in cold blood. Now, with nowhere to turn, they must run for their lives, while being pursued by a murderous hit man determined to eliminate his target at all costs.

Amazon.com

Sylvester Stallone spins a lighter, more romantic version of his tough guy image in Avenging Angelo. For his entire life, Frankie (Stallone) has been protecting Jennifer (Madeleine Stowe), the daughter of a mob boss named Angelo (Anthony Quinn)--but she doesn't know it, any more than she knows that Angelo is her father. When Angelo gets hit, Frankie reveals the truth. Having just caught her husband with another woman, Jennifer isn't receptive to the rest of her life upended; but after accepting her heritage, she decides to avenge her father. If none of this sounds particularly funny, well, it isn't; the problem is, it's supposed to be. Avenging Angelo flounders in search of a coherent comic tone and never finds it. Stowe is always engaging and Stallone's softer touch is surprisingly appealing, but not a moment of this dopey script makes any sense. --Bret Fetzer

Customer Reviews

Sylvester Stallone at his worst.
J. GALLO
Not a bad movie but just not what I am used to when watching a Stallone movie.
Sarah Rinehart
It isn't an action movie it is a romantic comedy and it does a very good job.

Format: DVD
"Avenging Angelo" is a fairly good movie, but one I enjoyed despite its shortcomings. It will forever be remembered as the last film of Anthony Quinn's long and illustrious career. Quinn does a good job of playing the mobster with a heart. Sylvester Stallone looks great & has enough puppy dog eyes directed at Madeleine Stowe to charm the coldest of hearts. Stowe as Jennifer does a good job at giving reality to her rich girl with a rocky marriage character. The give and take between she and Stallone keeps the romantic aspect alive. Italian actor Raoul Bova does a good job as the pseudo-writer who charms Jennifer. I'm not sure if it's Harry Van Gorkum or Kip Barrett who played the husband, but he did a great job of being irritating. My favorite moment is when the drugged Jennifer crashes the car in the driveway, only to find her husband making whoopee in the pool with her best friend. This was apparently Martyn Burke's first feature directing job. He had previously written the screenplay for "Gross Anatomy" starring Matthew Modine. The difficulty with the flick is the pull between the romance and the mafia hits. There is humor in the film, kind of a feature-length "Sopranos." For its shortcomings, this is still a pleasant evening's entertainment. Of course, you'll want to see Anthony Quinn one last time. Enjoy!

In my view this is far from being as terrible as some reviewers suggest. In fact I can honestly say I enjoyed both Sylvester Stallone and Madelaine Stowe, whose chemistry was obvious and very pleasant. The plot is not as good as the acting, which is subtle and fun, but even when the story hits low points it's all in a light comedic spirit so who really cares. Good job Sly.

when i was gonna first get the movie i wasnt expecting to really enjoy it that much being that it did not get released in theaters but i wanted it because i do like Stallone movies so i figured i would just check it out. Well i'm so suprised that it did not get a theater release the movie was 100 times better than i was expecting it to be. It had action, comedy, and romance and i would say Stallone's best performance since Cop Land. So i just wanna let people know that dont be scared because it didnt get a theatrical release you will be suprised and entertained trust me.

I have enjoyed being surprised by this poorly titled movie. If you want a very nice surprise, then this it. It isn't an action movie it is a romantic comedy and it does a very good job. The writing, camera shots, music all done very well. I am glade I took a chance and bought this movie. This movie once people get past the bad title and the bad outline of the movie they will say wow! I wasn't expecting that! Wow!

Ok...So, first of all...I know the movie hasn't come out yet. But my drama teacher got a copy from the writer, and we watched it in class. So, that said, on the review. Now normally, I'm not really a big fan of this kind of movie. But this one is different. I absolutely loved it. It's got a very different sort of humor, sophisicated, but great. And there are a few little things throughout the movie that are just hysterical. One of my classmates literally fell out of her chair, she was laughing so hard. I would definitely recommend this movie.

I first saw this just because it had 'Stallone', and 'comedy' in the same sentence...that combination means the movie will be funny as hell..but not intentionally...so i started watching it..and now I actually like it enough to buy it....and that says alot. The only other Stallone movie I own is First Blood...good action movie, and then this one, good action/comedy movie in the same manner...THIS one is predictable as hell, you KNOW how itll turn out, before even finishing it, I knew what the last scene would be...enough said, but still worth the RENT

I first saw this film on a flight. I didnt know what to think at first but I saw it had Sylvester Stallone in there and decided to watch it. I absolutely loved this movie. It definately was the best movie we saw on the plane. It beat the pants off those other lame movies that they played. This movie has action romance and comedy. It is one of the best movies I have seen in a while.
