Angel of H.E.A.T. (2003) from Tuna

Angel of H.E.A.T. (1982) is a classic exploitation secret agent spoof staring Marilyn Chambers as an underground crime fighter and Mary Woronov as a government agent. The LSD altered son of a semiconductor company founder has hatched a plot to take over the world by building androids, and then using punk rock to control everyone. The story is every bit as lame as that sounds, and even includes an evil dwarf, a German boyfriend who speaks Japanese, a Kung Fu master who looks like Mr. Myagi but speaks German, tandem hang gliding, and other inanities.


  • full frontal from Marilyn Chambers
  • full frontal from Mary Woronov, 
  • Mary Woronov and Remy O'Neill in a topless mud wrestling/lesbian scene.

On the other hand, if you are a Mary Woronov fan, you will want to add this dubious masterpiece to your collection, because she does a nude scene and a topless mud wrestling scene.

There has never been a decent quality home release of this film, and this DVD is as bad as the previous Laser disk and VHS versions. There is plenty of humor, both intentional and unintentional, but the real reason to watch it is the nudity.

The People Vote ...

The meaning of the IMDb score: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence equivalent to about three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, comparable to approximately two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, equivalent to about a two star rating from the critics, or a C- from our system. Films rated below five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film - this score is roughly equivalent to one and a half stars from the critics or a D on our scale. (Possibly even less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. (C+ means it has no crossover appeal, but will be considered excellent by genre fans, while C- indicates that it we found it to be a poor movie although genre addicts find it watchable). D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well. Any film rated C- or better is recommended for fans of that type of film. Any film rated B- or better is recommended for just about anyone. We don't score films below C- that often, because we like movies and we think that most of them have at least a solid niche audience. Now that you know that, you should have serious reservations about any movie below C-.

Based on this description, this is a C-. It is graded as a nudie film, not as a spoof. (Semi-famous women quite naked.)
