Avenging Angel – A Review

Avenging Angel featuring Kevin Sorbo and, for a short time, his wife Sam.

Another western, only this one runs more along the lines of the old style with hints of Pale Rider.

A preacher’s wife and daughter are killed by the local rich man’s gang of thugs.  The preacher goes off the deep end slightly and becomes a bounty hunter.  His last catch brings him back to the town where his family were killed.  He decides to stay and help a woman and her daughter, in doing so he also aids the rest of the town.

Kevin Sorbo plays the preacher (the man with no name).  He acts his, not so wee, socks off bringing his character to life.  He brings to life the sorrow, anger, guilt, confusion and emptiness that this man must have felt.  This is a thoroughly enjoyable film although personally I prefer Prairie Fever (see previous reviews).
