Jim Belushi isn’t exactly the most revered guy in the eyes of mainstream critics. As a critic, it’d usually be my duty to dislike him.

But then again, I’m not in the distinguished critic circle, so it’s all right for me to say that Belushi does an excellent job in Angel’s Dance.

Playing a world-renowned hitman hired by the mafia to train a young upstart by the name of Tony Greco, who gained the mob’s appreciation after taking a bullet for a member, Belushi balances out his character quite well in this black comedy actioneer. Training Tony for his profession in both mind and body, Belushi guides him up until a certain point. Here, Tony must prove his worth by killing a person randomly chosen out of the phone book.

That person turns out to be Angelica Chaste, a bookworm who, when she’s not going into confession booths and nearly giving a particular priest an orgasm with only her words (in a nonsensical side-plot), works the night shift at a mortuary. Tony and Rossellini (Belushi) do the typical hitman thing, with that being the studying of their prey in order to better learn her habits. Only Tony is too uppity, and tries to do the job before his training is complete. So now the two are dealing with a woman who knows she’s been marked for death, and is willing to learn and become just as ruthless as they are to save her life.

Angel’s Dance could have been worthless. There are plenty of films of its kind out there that are far from worthwhile. But surprisingly, it crafts itself quite nicely. Sure, there are some illogical scenes, and the emotional scope of things go from high to low with no visible middle ground at times, but it’s directed well enough with great performances by Belushi and Sheryl Lee to boot.
This is also one of the better films in the York Entertainment library, which is kind of sad when you consider that it isn’t tremendous or anything.
