I enjoyed watching this movie. The story was told in a unique way. It had a dreamlike quality that allowed me to like the lead character who was truly a villain.

This is stylish, commercial storytelling that marks a big leap forward for Ortega and should put Lorenzo Ferro on the map.

While Angel brings little new to the lexicon of serial killer biopics, it hits the target as an effortlessly palatable aesthetic experience, more shiny period pageant than probing character study.

The movie is compelling in the moment, but seems irresponsible with any afterthought.
