Everybody has either a film star or character that they had a crush on during their formative years. So which…
Get Some Action
Aspects of this take on the 1970s hit TV series are similar to the original show :Angels Dylan, Natalie and Alex still work for Charlie and interface with Bosley. They still flip their hair, stop traffic with a smile and kick butt. The differences are the unsubtle humor, the martial arts training and the high-tech premise: This time, they're hot on the trail of stolen software.
I fear Diaz's bouncy and swirling behind hypnotized me into giving this four stars.
That and Rockwell's unbelievable dancing skills.
And Bill Murray.
Ah, crap, I just love this film!
Corny, sexist, racist, and a weird delight.
Yeah, it's mostly a series of music videos tied loosely together with a fairly well worn plot, but that's not a big issue for me. In fact, I'm sort of impressed with a movie that goes to as much trouble as Charlie's Angels does for such relatively insignificant moments. It's a game of dress up (not just the angels themselves but the sets, the action, everything), and I find myself weirdly enamored with the film's dedication to reinventing its location and style essentially from moment to moment.
In particular, the fact that this film includes an opening credits that hints at a number of adventures from previous "episodes" just tickles me. Those shots…
This extremely tongue-in-cheek action comedy does not give a damn about its plot, and so why should we?
The fight scenes are blazin’, the bods are jigglin’, and the energy level is absolutely soarin’. At an extremely brisk 98 minutes, “Charlie’s Angels” boasts some snazzy performances by all involved, especially Luke Wilson (always immensely likable) and Crispin Glover (truly creepy).
My favorite angel? Well, who wouldn’t want to “fight crime” with the irresistible Drew Barrymore?
This movie gets a lot of hate and I get it but for me its a guilty pleasure. Its just a over the top fun movie.
Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu are good in their roles while Cameron Diaz as per usual annoys the hell out of me. Sam Rockwell is great as always. Tim Curry is one of the highlights of this movie, hes having a great time and it shows. I've always loved Curry epically as a villain. One of the biggest disappointments of the movie come from Bill Murray though who did something that he rarely does and completely phoned it in. The show is stolen by the performance given my Cripsin Glover, hes great in everything…
I love this film more than I have any right to. It's just filled with fun gags and style and music and never lets up. For example Lucy Liu has two slo-mo hair flips in the first 6 minutes. The casting is spot on. Like, these people are in the film: Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, Cameron Diaz, Bill Murray, Luke Wilson, Matt LeBlanc, Crispin Glover (who asked for all of his lines to be removed), Tim Curry, Sam Rockwell, Tom Green, Melissa McCarthy... I just want to spend more time in this universe. No guilt.
Okay, so the action sequences aren't the greatest, the wirework stunts are sometimes particularly poor, and the supporting cast is quite laughable, but that doesn't matter - I had fun. This is cheesy as hell, but I really enjoyed the music, found the daft humour to induce some groans and of course, who doesn't want to watch Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Lui in an array of tight clothing?
A decent popcorn flick. Nothing more, nothing less.
Good fight scenes/action scenes and good girl power but nothing you couldn't find in some other film like Kill Bill or something else.
I found this film mildly offensive.
Charlie's Angels is a reboot of the classic television series. It follows three sexy, cunning, and ass kicking agents that do missions for Charlie, their mysterious handler. The film has a nice mix of action and comedy it just doesn't have that much substance. The Angels played by Lucy Liu, Drew Barrymoore, and Cameron Diaz just don't have that much to do other than look sexy and take out bad guys. Some side plots are put in place like Diaz and Lui having boyfriends, but it doesn't really add much depth to the characters. Overall Charlie's Angels is a 90 minute popcorn action flick with sexy women taking out bad guys. It's an enjoyable watch, but not much more.
My review -- this film is now on DVD and it roughly made a profit margin of $161 million. The storyline/contents well the Charlie's Angels receive some new clients with a new and exciting mission of protect and serve one of the Angels take it literally but to find out which one and if they complete their main objective you will have to watch the film to find out? The tempo is somewhat quick and straight to the point which is a good thing because there are so many cliché sequences such as [the massive game of chicken with a Formula One driving car, I think I may be correct in saying this would be my third film review lately…
no offense but i used to spend every lunch time at school recreating every shot of this movie...
These angels aren't exactly what your father was enjoying when your mother was away fulfilling errands. These angels aren't delegated as mere sex objects running around providing the jiggle entertainment that is (or was) supplied by today's 'Baywatch'. The 90s is a different decade after our minority movements and today's woman is just as apt to do a flying kung-fu face plant into a baddie as any man. The angels of the film are action heroes for an armada of small girls needing some female empowerment when their only other choices consist of a barely clothed Britney or a barely covered Christina. These angels aren't just the sex objects that the classic assortment of angelic 70s stars were; these angels…
So cool. I wanted to (and still kind of do) be a Charlie Angels. Great music and moves this movie was my everything when it first released.
Oh, come on. Bring back Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith, Farrah Fawcett and the voice of John Forsythe.
Superproducción que traslada a la gran pantalla la exitosa serie televisiva de los 70.
Argumento puramente anecdótico para que se sucedan las secuencias más o menos espectaculares.
La película no tiene ni pies, ni cabeza, ni excesiva gracia.
Entetenidilla y poco más.
