Review of Raped by an Angel at
Reviewed by Kozo:
Known in some places as Naked Killer 2, this rape/revenge tale from Wong Jing's factory only proves that the dollar is the bottom line. In reality, the only connection Raped by an Angel has with Naked Killer is the reunion of Chingmy Yau and Simon Yam, who both play new characters. The quality also takes a drop. While Naked Killer had over-the-top comedy and great action, Raped by an Angel has crap.
Mark Cheng stars as sweaty bad boy who becomes obessed with commercial idol Chingmy Yau. To have his way with her, he moves in next door and starts to befriend Chingmy's friend (Ng Suet-Man). Unfortunately, Mark gets a go at her before moving onto the main course, but not before he gets taken to court and tragedy strikes. Meanwhile, Chingmy starts dating a nice triad guy (Simon Yam), which accounts for thirty minutes of wasted life.
In truth, this Category III charmer is probably a suitable fix for those who dig this sort of thing, as it's sufficiently sick and has a few creative moments. The final act is especially inspired, but it's also irredeemably tasteless and politically incorrect. Not that anyone ever accused Wong Jing and Hong Kong films in general of being socially responsible. Like it says in the opening, the dollar is the bottom line, and Wong Jing and director Andrew Lau intend to milk this cow for all its worth. So we get nudity, trashy sex, lots of leering at Chingmy Yau's nubile form, and justice for our heroes. What we don't get is a film that transcends its exploitation roots, or the satisfaction of time well spent. (Kozo 1996)
