Editorial Reviews

From creator ED BRUBAKER and in the style of Grindhouse! Eve (ZOË BELL) is a sexy assassin who kills without remorse - until one botched hit changes everything. Caught off guard, Eve is stabbed in the head and inadvertently murders a young girl. The blade is removed, but the damage is done: Eve's mind is now filled with visions of past victims. The hunter becomes the haunted and this killing machine is plagued with remorse. Unable to "work," this mob asset has become a liability. Eve's only chance to survive is to track down her ruthless bosses before their new hitman finds her.

I had not watched the original web series or read the comic so I guess that makes me a non-fan/follower. On its own this would be a standard slice and fight film but with a very agile and capable action gal. Instead they included a plethora of supplements that help give this entire package a higher rating. Actually, I had ordered this because of Doug Jones as I am one of those behind-the-scenes kind of supporters and he is another one of those guys that no one knows but has been seen by everybody (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy, Doom, etc.).

You have a standard (and completely unbelievable in the beginning) story of a hit woman turning the tables and killing all of those she worked for in the past. This change of heart stems from having a 12" blade stuck in her brain, but hey - this is entertainment not reality. The stunts are good, the film look is average to grainy throughout, and the acting painful at times. But what makes this (especially for the fans) are the special features.

Making of: 30 minutes covering all that went into the production outside of the focused features following.
Casting Zoe: 15 minutes of the thoughts and process behind having her be the one.
Writing Brubaker: 15 minutes catering to the fans of his and why he does what he does.
Behind the Stunts: 16 minutes (my favorite) about the real work horses and brains behind how they created and pulled off the stunts in this.
Zoe Screen Test: 3 minutes of her trying to act without kicking the crud out of someone.
Eve's Tips: Several 30-second Webisodes entailing how one can go about trying to kill like she can.

Overall, one thing the creators mentioned in these documentaries that I thought of the most in rating this, is that the movie is supposed to be entertaining without trying to be something above a B movie - and in that case they succeeded. Two and a half stars for the film, one and a half stars for the supplements.

I didn't know anything about Ms Bell before I watched this movie. While I agree with some of the critics that occaisionally her acting skills lapse, there's no doubting her abilities as an action hero, right down to the Bruce Willis style singlet. I found some of the tough fight scenes difficult to stomach, they may not be real but they "felt" damn realistic to me.
The storyline mixes up the vengeance/vendetta themes of similar movies in a clever way, and I liked the central character's response to her own feelings about the terrible things she had done. I originally gave this 3 stars, but after reflection I think it's worth 4, despite a few short comings in the lead's performance.

"Angel of Death" is, indeed, a movie collected from episodes of an action/crime show that aired exclusively online. Luckily enough, this isn't a fact that you need to dwell on while you're watching the film: unlike other 'movies' compiled from TV episodes - like The Crow - Stairway To Heaven or a number of "Walker, Texas Ranger" features - "Angel of Death" feels pretty much like a real film on its own, without intentional restraints on story progression and individual scenes. Got it? Good. Now we can focus on the other things it is - a very good solo debut for stuntwoman Zoe Bell, the real heroine behind Lucy Lawless in Xena and Uma Thurman in Kill Bill.

The story: Eve (Bell) is the archetypal assassin - deadly, efficient, and utterly remorseless - but when a job gone bad and leaves her with a knife blade in her head, a haunted conscience is forced upon her, urging her to unravel a web of organized crime and take down the figures responsible for mass pain and suffering.

If you've seen the trailer for the film, the knife-in-the-head scene undoubtedly caught your eye, and I'm happy to say that that kind of grittiness is persistent throughout the film. It's not a gore flick, but action director Ron Yuan (Black Dynamite) wrangles some remarkable moments of realistic hand-to-hand violence between Eve and her opponents.

The story, I understand, is based on a comic book(?) Don't know. I found the plot OK, but Zoe Bell's action scenes are the best that I've ever seen.

I understand that she is/was the top action stunt woman(?). Did all the stunts for Uma Thurman in the Kill Bill series and many others(?) Her non-action acting is good, believable. I'd enjoy seeing her in some other movies (besides just stunts).

So, I like this movie/Zoe Bell and have watched it more than once. If you want to see world-class Female physical action (not sex), give this a watch.

This is a lite action flick that bares slight resemblance to Kill Bill, minus the highly stylized sets, costumes and action sequences. That's not to say it's less simmering or action oriented in production value. Although it spills much less blood than the KB franchise, it has its moments of quick paced but gritty fight sequences. There is an underlying tone of the supernatural as well, during times where Zoe Bell's character feels remorseful for her dirty deeds. Bell is a pretty capable stunt woman/actress and does manage to add a bit of sex appeal in the opening sequence...considering her tom boyish appeal. Because I'm becoming a fan of Ed Brubaker's writing style, I can see his influence all over this script and for that...my attention was grabbed.
