By Byron Kolln HALL OF FAME on May 18, 2007
The original ANGEL, released in 1984, was a surprise sleeper hit all over the world; garnering a cult following during it's runs on late-night cable. Donna Wilkes plays Molly Stewart, a 15-year-old schoolgirl who moonlights as a hooker (called Angel) on Hollywood Boulevard. Abandoned by her mother, Molly is taken care of by eccentric landlady Solly (Susan Tyrrell), transvestite Mae (Dick Shawn), and former cowboy Kit (Rory Calhoun). Molly's world is shattered when a serial killer starts offing her fellow toms, and becomes the next target when she points him out of a police lineup. ANGEL is filled with thrills, spills, campy one-liners and some equally over-the-top performances.

This box set also includes the two sequels, AVENGING ANGEL (released in 1985), and ANGEL III: THE FINAL CHAPTER (released in 1988). AVENGING ANGEL is the better film, because we get to see more of Susan Tyrrell and Rory Calhoun reprising their roles of Solly and Kit. Law student Molly (Betsy Russell) returns to the streets in order to track down the gangland killers who mowed down her guardian, Lt. Andrews (Robert Lyons). Betsy Russell, one of the main pin-up beauties of the 80s, delivers a good performance as Molly/Angel.

ANGEL III: THE FINAL CHAPTER follows Molly (now played by Mitzi Kapture) as she tries to track down her mother and long-lost sister, bringing down a white-slave trade ring in the process (run by former Bond girl Maud Adams). The third movie doesn't really work because the story and characters surrounding Angel are so dark and serious. The earlier ANGEL films were the perfect mix of comedy and action with endearing characters; you won't find that winning combination in the third movie. However, Mitzi Kapture does come closest to the spirit of Donna Wilkes in her performance as Molly/Angel.

The ANGEL trilogy is a perfect addition to your DVD collection, especially if you love 80's kitsch.

Some of my favorite movies from the 80's. Cheesy, but fun. Ridiculous, but funny. Just the kind of movies you can laugh at. The acting is silly, the stories aren't believable...yet it's a good way to unwind and laugh.

In 1984, I fell in love with a cheesy drive-in movie named Angel. It starred soap star Donna Wilkes, Dick Shawn, Rory Calhoun, Susan Tyrrell and Cliff Gorman (in one of the best roles of his career). This girl was a high school student during the day, a hooker at night. The reason she started hooking was her mom just left her and she need to get money somehow..WOW a great reason to be a lady of the evening! It had T & A, but kept the sleezibess in a small amount. Molly (Angel tried to solve the murder of her friend, another hooker. It was well done for a small grindhouse film.

A year later 1985, (that five years in movie time for you), A sequal came out. I wanted to stop and say NO, but I went anyway! I was not disaapointed. Betsy (Tomboy) Russell took on the role of Angel. In this film, Molly is graduating college and out of hooking. Her police guardian Detective Andrews, who is now played by Robert Lyons, is shot death. Molly realizes the best way to get information is to be Angel. Flanked by Kit (Rory Calhoun) and Solly (Susan Tyrrell), they flesh out who killed Andrews. With Ossie Davis in this cast, it brought a bit of class to this small film. At the end of this film ,you thought this film series was over when Molly spouted the film line "You know I never had a family Before."

A year later, 1986, Angel III: The Final Chapter. Angel is played by Mitzi Capture, who later did the show Silk Stalkings. Angel finds her birth mother and knows she has a sister. Her sister is involved with a slavery ring headed by Maud Adams, who also appeared in James Bond: the Man with Golden Gun. The piot thickens as Angel's Mom dies and tries to find her sister. Richard (Shaft) Roundtree plays the detective she befriends and helps her.

I believe "Angel and Avenging Angel" were absolutely on the money; "angel III" not so. I enjoy watching the first two movies of the series because some of the scenes and some of the music bring back memories of my own time in a big city. To this day I watch them now and again. Even though there is violence they are kind of feel good movies.

If you're on this page then you probably already know the basics about the Angel films. I beg to differ with the previous reviewer about Angel III, i found it quite entertaining. It's not perfect I will admit...but not all that bad.
Anchor Bay has released yet another quality DVD set with "The Angel Collection" containing 3 DVD's for parts 1 through 3 of the series. All three are presented in 1.85:1 Widescreen (16x9 Animorphic). As far as the picture quality is concerned, these movies look just about as good as they possibly could on the DVD format. I never noticed any dust artifacts or other imperfections in the film prints used for the transfers. The sound is presented in Dolby 2.0 Mono, since they were all originally released with Mono soundtracks I suppose. It is crisp and clean, also about as good a sound as an old Mono track can provide.
The Special Features of "ANGEL" (Disc 1) are two Theatrical Trailers, and several Deleted Scenes with no sound (sound was lost) but with English subtitles so we know what the original dialogue was.
The Special Features of "AVENGING ANGEL" (Disc 2) are two Theatrical Trailers, and a nice still & poster gallery.
The Special Features of "ANGEL III: THE FINAL CHAPTER" (Disc 3) are one Theatrical Trailer.
All in all, a nice trilogy set of this cheesy 80's series of movies. Obviously these movies aren't for everyone, but if you're a fan you really can't go wrong.
