Charlie’s Angels – Blu-ray Edition

Oscar-calibre cinema? No way! Fun? Yes way! This is a total romp filled with girl power, 70s music and hair flipping. Obviously it's the total package (written with total sarcasm).

The mysterious Charlie (voiced by John Forsythe) employs three lovely ladies to do his dirty work for him. And by dirty work I mean catch the bad guys. Their latest assignment is to locate a high tech programmer Eric Knox (Sam Rockwell – A Dangerous Mind, Iron Man 2), who has been kidnapped.

Angels Natalie Cook (Cameron Diaz – Knight and Day, The Mask), Dylan Sanders (Drew Barrymore – Never Been Kissed, The Wedding Singer) and Alex Munday (Lucy Liu – from television's Ally McBeal), with the help of Bosley (Bill Murray – Groundhog Day, Caddyshack), set off to kung fu some butt if they have to in order to find Eric.

It seems this compute genius has developed a device that can pinpoint the location of someone anywhere on the globe. The Angels suspect that it might be his number one competitor, Roger Corwin (Tim Curry – The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Hunt for Red October), and his hired heavy (Crispin Glover – Hot Tub Time Machine, Beowulf), who are behind the disappearance. Hired by Vivian Wood (Kelly Lynch – Road House, Drugstore Cowboy), the three ladies go about getting their man.

Totally a popcorn flick with no depth to it whatsoever. But it works because it does not even attempt to be something it is not. McG (We Are Marshall, Terminator Salvation) what kind of film he is making and sticks to it. There are plenty of scenes just there for light laughs and pyrotechnics. McG supplies it with the tongue-in-cheek moments and the three lovely ladies provide the required energy.
