Fans of Japanese anime, Chinese martial arts, Michael Raven's work or Asia Carrera's sex skills will love this highly-stylized comic book porn.
After an impressive title sequence, Fujiko (Asia Carrera) screws a samurai, which prompts a vision from an ancient Chinese sorcerer who predicts a battle between good and evil and the second coming of warrior princess Angel X.
When Angel (Kaylani Lei) and her boyfriend are attacked by goons and Asia appears to kick their asses, we know that she is Angel X. However, Asia is looking to retire from the Shogun-assassin-with-a-heart-of-gold routine and seeks to find a younger champion to take her place in the battle again Gobo-Daigon (Nick Manning). Kaylani is that girl, the new Angel X.
After an intense training session, Kaylani goes after dark overlord ogre Manning, who once seduced her mother, the Empress of Light (Olivia Del Rio), via a maelstrom of missionary thrusting and a doggie-style pumping. She learns that she is the love child of good and evil and has the power of the moon in her blood, so she must avenge her mother by battling Manning.
Armed not only by super powers, but by a sexy girl-girl love scene, Asia and Kaylani head off to battle Manning, who spends his off-time having orgies with buxom blondes. When our heroines catch up with him they do battle via lasers and balls of light until Kaylani is the last one standing. She is rewarded by getting to fuck the sorcerer, who as it turns out, is not a crusty old Chinaman, but hunky Dale Dabone. She repays him with a slippery blowjob and gets her cooch slurped in return until the duo are soon engaged in a standing backdoor session. She finishes him off by riding him reverse cowgirl style in the mist.
Cheesy dialogue is scattered throughout an otherwise strong script, but the comic book flavor makes it forgivable. The visuals are strong throughout, with top-notch photography and effects courtesy of Raven (with effect help from Chet Baxter), but bad sound sometimes undercuts their appeal. We could have used some actual martial arts sequences and faster-paced action, for what is essentially a porno martial arts flick, there was a distinct lack of action - out of the sack, that is. As far as sex goes, there was enough action to make even a naked Chuck Norris wince. Minor grievances aside though, this highly-stylized sex-martial-arts flick is very well done and is as good as any B-movie you might rent on a Saturday night, albeit with much more graphic sex scenes. Sort of a Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon meets Big Trouble in Little China with fuckin', Angel X is a must for fans of couples porn, Asian beauties, Chinese action flicks, Japanese anime and goofy drive-in movies.
