A High-Quality Rip-Off of All Your Favorites
Compared to the decently-budgeted films this movie rips off (Escape from LA/New York, Mad Max, The Running Man etc.) this one is sub-par. But as far as dumb movies good for a night of rootin'-tootin' yuks go, it's top-of-the-line. Rick Rossovich poorly but acceptably portrays a convicted felon sent to Crime City to sabotage a villain's (Rick Dean) devious plan to kill everyone with a deadly virus. Oh yeah, it's also reminiscent of The Rock. Along the way he meets Sherry Rose and has sex with her in a brief but high-quality nude scene on her behalf. There are plenty of laughs (both intentional and unintentional) and interesting plot twists, a cool if pointless shot of an exploding statue of Mary, and more Mexican extras than you can shake a stick at! Hell you couldn't swing a dead cat by the tail in this film without hitting a Mexican extra. Summary: If you like bad movies, or good B-Movies, check this one out. And if you like it, you'll like Angel of Destruction even more. 2 Thumbs Up.
