Same o'l, same o'l boulevard of broken dreams
14 April 2015 | by videorama-759-859391See all my reviews

Here's one of Leo's films, that I'm sure she wants to leave behind her. Much sexier then, her name only came up again in The Fighter. If you've seen other prostitute movies, they run similar paths or in one case, the same path: check out Angel In Red, you know what you're in for: drama, sex, sleaze. A high school drop out, Leo and her little brother are approached by a pimp, Duke (an effective Dale Midkaff). He uses his charm and good looks to lead the vulnerable Cookie (Leo) into this sordid and violent life, where soon she's on the boulevard, turning tricks, going to seedy motels with sicko's, one wanting to marry her of course (really check out Angel In Red) When discovering one of her own, beaten to death by Duke, she luckily escapes, with our Duke hunting her down like a wild animal. This is basically the plot for the rest of the movie, that does some pretty scary moments up near the end, and early in the pic, thanks to Midkaff. The film's highlights I guess, is watching Randall Batinkoff, as a not so bright character, one of Duke's associates, helping him track down our Cookie. He's like a pathetic leech, grabber on'er basically, while the other highlight is the famous Julie (Catwoman) Newmar, as an older haggard pro. Look, if you like 80's prostitute films, this is just another one to add to your agenda. Juicily entertaining sleaze, but a good film? No. Just a bad cliché'd one, where out of interest to see a younger Leo, in an average performance, watch.
