Martial arts wise Vietnam veteran turned mercenary Kell (Jimmy Broome) has made it his favourite pastime to dress up prostitutes in bridal gowns, kill them, cut off their ringfingers, and send the fingers to rock singer Delilah (Jessica Mark) - who by the way seems to perform topless in all of her shows. Understandably, this scares Delilah shitless, so she hires tough-as-nails private eye Brit (Charlie Spradling) as her bodyguard. But Brit hasn't even started to work on her job when Kell pays her a visit to brutally kill her - which brings her half-sister Jo (Maria Ford) onto the scene, a cop who decides to pick up where Brit has left off, this way avenging Brit and doing her job at the same time - ah yeah, and also taking over Brit's cop-boyfriend Aaron (Antonio Bacci). However, Delilah isn't only threatened by Kell, but also by mafia boss Luso (Bob McFarland), who has made her a star but now wants to collect her life insurance. So while Jo kills herself through Luso and his men, she and Aaron also try to track down Kell, who almost kills Aaron when they get too close.

Despite Jo's best efforts to guard her though, Kell manages to kidnap Delilah in the finale, and he prepares to marry and kill her in his warehouse guarded by his mercenary pals - but Jo and Aaron make their way through the mercenaries, killing them left and right before fighting, defeating and killing Kell in an extended showdown before he can do any harm to Delilah.

One question remains: Why was Kell so fixated on Delilah? - A question the film leaves unanswered.

 

A bad film no matter which way you look at it: The plot is as silly as it is derivative, the actors are mediocre at best and not at all helped by the stupid dialogues they have to fight through, and the film's many excuses to show women topless are at times ridiculous ...  and yet, you might find yourself liking Angel of Destruction better than you thought you would, and maybe it is for its derivative, silly and sensationalist screenplay, maybe it's for its many unnecessary topless scenes (with an extended fightscene with Maria Ford dressed only in a thong taking top honours), maybe it's for the sexy outfits Maria Ford wears throughout the movie, but maybe it's also for the straight-forewardness of the whole thing: Angel of Destruction seems to know it's little more than a pulpy piece of trash, but it makes no excuses for it and shows no pretentions. It just is what it is, and that's by no means a masterpiece ... but that doesn't mean you cannot enjoy it for what it is ...

 

By the way, reportedly this film was originally to have starred Charlie Spradling, but when she refused to do the topless fighting scene, her character was simply killed off and her stepsister (played by Maria Ford) was written into the movie to fill in for her.
