Review: Director: McG Writer: John August, Cormac Wibberley and Marianne Wibberley Cast: Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, Bernie Mac Length: 105 minutes Rating: (PG-13) Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu reunite in Charlie's Angels - Full Throttle, a sequel to the action-adventure-comedy hit, which was inspired by the popular television series. In their new adventure, the crime-fighting trio demonstrate their expertise as masters of disguise and martial arts as they go undercover to learn the identity of a rogue agent. I think Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle is more or less the same movie as the original Charlie's Angels (2000) but it still makes a good sequel. But what I discovered was that the sequel had much more special effects and much more over the top stunts compared to the fist film. Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle is not a funny movie even though Bernie Mac comes up with some good one liner's. The story line kinds of gets lost amongst all the explosions and fight scenes.
It's hard to genuinely care about what's happening, and it doesn't make much sense. Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Demi Moore had fun while making this movie. They " re given over the top characters to play. The three Angels are like James Bond but just the female version they do everything a male actor in a western film would do, ride a horse and have a shoot up in a saloon. There is a scene where the three Angels discuss what Dylan Sanders (Drew Barrymore) was named before she went into the witness protection program.
It turns out she was named Helen Zas. Natalie (Cameron Diaz) and Alex (Lucy Liu) make jokes about her name, and Lucy Liu comes up with some good wicked ones, you almost get the idea that she made them up herself. Well I don't want to give the plot away but there are a lot of different locations where the Angels nearly get killed, in Mongolia and elsewhere, while blowing up stuff, shooting people, being shot at. Two new faces appear in this movie: Demi Moore as Madison Lee, a rouge Angel and Bernie Mac taking over from Bill Murray in the role of Bosley but as Bosley's brother, who is also called Bosley. To sum it all up the Angels must safety acquire these two special rings that have data stored in them about the identities of the people in the witness protection program and at the same time take down Madison (Demi Moore) So I give the movie 3 stars out of 5 partly because I found the first Charlies Angels to be more believable. So if you enjoyed watching a movie with big stars and a bit of comedy amongst the midst of car chases and explosions the movie for you is Hollywood Homicide which stars Harrison Ford and Josh Harnett..
