Storyline

Meet six women and a teenage girl who never expected to risk their lives fighting for justice. A schoolteacher had seen one too many kids succumb to drugs. A Las Vegas entertainer learned her brother had been beaten by a drug pusher. A martial arts teacher knew how insidious drugs were among children. A top model knew that drugs were destroying her life. A stunt driver was in shock when her brother overdosed - on drugs! Add a nosy schoolgirl and a policewoman with a perm, and you've got the Angels Brigade. These women (and the girl, too) are sexy, smart - and dangerous! Just ask the right-wing militia these ladies have destroyed. But the evil fat cats pushing drugs to kids? Not even they are a match for these vengeful vixens. They just say POW! to drug pushers.

Alternate Versions

In the re-release version, titled "Angels' Revenge," the structure of the film is radically changed. The womens' attack on the drug processing plant is moved from the middle of the film to the beginning. Halfway through this scene, the picture freezes, and newly recorded voiceover by Jacqueline Cole explains the action and sets up the background of the story. The next hour of the film is made up of the original cut's beginning, now told as a flashback. When the film reaches the point of the womens' raid on the drug plant, the narrative jumps forward, with more voiceover from Cole, and proceeds in an identical fashion to the original cut of the film.

Should be shown as punishment!
23 May 1999 | by bat-5See all my reviews

Even watching this from the relative safety of MST3K, I felt offended at the events being shown. Jack Palance running around in that suit! Alan Hale, never being able to escape the role of The Skipper, and Mr. Howell er, Jim Backus, throwing away whatever dignity he had. Then there's our main characters. A very broad (no pun intended) range of just about every ethnicity, job, stereotype that you could think of. Very bad acting from our leading ladies here. I would like to think that Jack took this role on advice from his agent, who was probably drunk, and then quickly fired him. On a slightly different note, the cinematographer was one Dean Cundey. He has since gone on to bigger and better films such as Apollo 13.
