Editorial Reviews

When a preacher (Kevin Sorbo) defends a local town from greedy land-barons, his church is destroyed and his family is killed. Now known simply as "The Preacher," he picks up his long-forgotten gun, leaves town, and heads out into the desert to begin a new life as a bounty hunter. Returning years later, he discovers his town has been overrun by the same scoundrels who destroyed his quiet existence. The Preacher can no longer stand by and watch as innocent people suffer the same fate as he. Justice must be served.

Kevin Sorbo gives enrichment to western genre, as he did in Hercules for adventure genre. He does an amazing job as the Preacher. it's refreshing to have some movies like this on tv again! And Kevin Sorbo, as the great actor he is, makes the Preacher reminds us how to get back to ourselves after we lose everything in our lives! It's a touching wonderful movie!
Congratulations, Kevin!

Without question,Kevin Sorbo gave his best performance ever in this story of a preacher torn between his faith and his desire for vengence after losing his wife & daughter at the hands of a greedy landbaron's henchmen. This movie will remind you of many of Clint Eastwood's westerns,most notably Pale Rider. As the Preacher grapples with his decision,into his life comes Maggie,a former saloon girl and her young daughter,Amelia. They remind him of what he lost and through the goodness he sees in them,he begins to see the goodness in himself. A wonderful movie for anyone who loves a good western. The dvd extras(an interview w/Sorbo and a featurette on the making of the General Store scene)are wonderful and the packaging is very nice. The only complaint I would have is the lack of deleted scenes,which would have put a new dynamic on the relationship between Maggie & The Preacher. However,that is a minor thing and overall,I absolutely love this movie!

This surprised me! I'm not a big Kevin Sorbo fan so I went into this not expecting alot. I watched many of the Hercules episodes with moderate interest but this was actually an entertaining western. Though the story was common and a bit predictable it was well paced with very good acting and the action sequences were well balanced by the drama and story.

I will have to give some other Kevin Sorbo films a view as a result of this.

This was a made for TV western about a preacher (Kevin Sorbo) who looses his wife and daughter, murdered by the henchmen of a powerful and greedy land barren played by Klaus Hauser. I saw his name at the beginning credits but did not recognise him until well into the movie. He played the part well. Sorbo, as The Preacher, turns from a man of God to a bounty hunter exacting revenge, but his actions nag at his conscience. Eventually he comes to an understanding of who he is and what he needs to do. Fine performance by Mr. Sorbo.

This is more than a moderately entertaining western. They did a good job keeping the story flowing especially considering the limitations that network television puts on time. It could have used a little more time given to background details, but it wasn't available. It still makes sense though. I'd recommend this whether or not you are a Sorbo fan.

This movie was so much more then I had expected. I really loved the whole story a lot and the great thing was, everyone could watch it. Sorbo really should be a cowboy more often, he makes the role very believable. I did not expect that. Cynthia Watros, what an actress... she really fit this whole scene really well and that adorable little girl... she just makes your heart melt. Once again, looking for the hero... look for the "Man in Black".. again, would love to see a sequel to this. I truly believe the way things were left with the bad guy, it is a possible venture... WAKE UP HOLLYWOOD, not everything has to be terrorism.

Kevin Sorbo is one of my most favorite actors, and so far this is definitely my favorite movie of his. I love westerns as apparently does Kevin being he makes his form of 1800's justice so real in how he deals with personal loss and justice for both the corrupt and their targets. Good movie for older family members, but may be a little over the top for young children.

This western is prettygood, doesn't have a lot of foul, vulgar language that most people seem to enjoy hearing in a movie these days. Ithas a good plot(story for those not inclinded to expand their vocabulary), isn't a really bloody, gory movie. and was written by a couple of really good writers of westerns. buy it if you like good westerns.

Synopsis: The '07 made-for-television `Avenging Angel' is a somewhat entertaining western starring Kevin Sorbo as the avenging angel known as "the Preacher." You've seen this storyline many times before, idealistic, God-fearing man stands up against evil only to have his family killed and left with nothing but thoughts of revenge. He returns to the scene of the crime one year later and sees the same form of injustice taking place again perpetrated by the same group of bad guys. Looks like a good time for payback.

Critique: Sorry to disappoint all the Sorbo fans out there (which I am one of) but this is not a -5 Star- film. The first thing I found to be quite noticeable was the abrupt breaks in the presentation which of course one should expect in a film made for television. However in this case these interruptions were especially annoying because the storyline always seemed to have advanced during the intermission leaving the viewer to feel as though something had been missed. I also found the dialogue to be predictable and uninspired leading to stilted, predictable and one-dimensional performances.

As for Kevin Sorbo? Sorbo is at his best when he is allowed to inject humor and whimsy into his performance. Here in `Avenging Angel' he was confined in a role requiring a stoic, sullen individual. Such a portrayal doesn't play to Kevin's talents and hence doesn't deliver the type of performance his fans have come to expect and enjoy.

Positives: Kevin's real life wife Sam Jenkins has a small role at the beginning of the film as his soon to be deceased wife. It's always nice to see them on the screen together.

My Rating: Worth a watch, but probably not something to add to your permanent DVD collection unless you're a big fan of the big guy, -3 Stars-.
