Cult Retro is back with the third installment of its part-spygirl, part-supernatural adventure series, Angel Avengers. Episode 03 returns the entire original cast of lovely ladies, and this time they are on a collision course with the series’ main bad guy (so far), Big Joel Nekoda.
The film opens up with Angel Nikki dispatching a guard while Angel Brink and Angel Ash confront Big Joel. Big Joel delivers an over-the-top yet entertaining monologue, and the girls proceed to beat the hell out of him. Back outside, Agent Nikki is still taking it to Joel’s henchman. This battle involves a mix of standard fight camerawork mixed in with a little POV fighting. Meanwhile, Joel himself is back on his feet and the girls continue to beat on him some more but never can seem to keep him down permanently.
The beating continues for another minute or two until Big Joel is able to momentarily turn the tide. He grabs each Angel by the throat and drops them to their knees. However, one of the girls uses a mysterious super power in an attempt to resolve the situation.
Thinking they have won, the Angels walk away, but it turns out Joel is very much alive. Using the occult artifacts in his possession, he intends to somehow siphon energy from the Angels. However, Joel doesn’t realize that the Angels are standing right behind him. This results in a final showdown involving a stake to the head and an explosion, but I won’t give away the details…
I am personally enjoying this series, and I think Angel Avengers 03 is the best episode so far. I like how the producers have taken the spy girl genre and added a touch of the supernatural. Now keep in mind that the producers have always billed these as “girl power” films, and for the most part, that’s what you get. Besides the short strangulation scene, there really isn’t a lot of peril as in the Stormy Tempest films.
Speaking of Stormy Tempest, the producers have a blog that always has interesting information on upcoming projects. Looks like the next Stormy Tempest film will be released sometime in February and more Angel Avengers with new characters will be coming our way as well.
The Angel Avengers have dismantled Big Joel Nekoda’s occult artifact smuggling operation while defeating wave after wave of his incompetent henchmen. Now the Angels are finally going after the bossman himself! As Angel Nikki (The Bionic Bombshell) takes out the two perimeter guards, Angel Brink and Angel Ash take on Big Joel. Our heroines quickly clobber the villains with a devastating assault, but they soon learn that there is more to Big Joel than meets the eye and KEEPING him down will be the hard part. Only the full fury of the Angel Avengers unleashed will put an end to Big Joel Nekoda… but at what cost? More Sexy Combat! More Sizzling Action! More Destruction! More Girl Power! “B-Movie King” and cult movie legend Joel D. Wynkoop finally joins the battle!
