Good Morning Angels
16 October 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After watching "Charlie's Angels", there is a brief period of time where a smile is plastered onto your face and will not come off. The movie has everything anybody would want from a film like this. The best part is watching Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu literally kick the crap out of bad guys. Everything else in this film will not matter because after scenes like that, nothing in the film even matters. Throughout, you will forget it was based on the popular television showand just watch it like it was a newly conceived idea by Hollywood producers.

If you want a hardcore plot, wrong movie. If you want meaning, wrong movie. If you want reality, wrong movie. "Charlie's Angels" has none of these qualities throughout the film, and that is what make it so amazing. In the film, people jump out of Boeing 747 jets at twenty-thousand feet and nobody dies. People jump of one hundred foot castles and live to tell the story. Buildings explode sending our heroes into a car windshield and they walk off without a scratch. These parts (even though they are very unreal) gave me the sense of what I call in your face action. The Angels do have a small purpose though in carrying out these beautiful scenes.

The Angels, Natalie (Diaz), Alex (Liu) and Dylan (Barrymore), must rescue Eric Knox(Sam Rockwell) after being kidnapped. All signs point to Roger Corwin (Tim Curry), the "villain" in the film who the Angel's are highly suspicious of in stealing the new voice ID software developed by Knox himself. Along for the ride is a surprisingly not annoying Bill Murray as Bosley, who does prove his worth as both the character and actor. Also joining is Crispin Glover as the creepy thin man who loves pulling women's hair out and smelling it. The Angels's have there hands full and they go through with the actions scenes in the film with so much enthusiasm.

The action scenes, as I mentioned before, are very unreal. Even though they are unreal, the film makes the action scenes so great by having the same style as "The Matrix". The slow-motion back flips and the half speed car chases give the action scenes that edge that keeps the audience on the edge of their seat. We all know that Lucy Liu can't do a 540 degree turn in midair, or that Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz can hang off a helicopter and defuse a missile, but who cares. These scenes will make the movie worthwhile, believe me people.

The action scenes are great and the comedy is just as good. I forgot to mention that this is an action-comedy movie and both genres are proved to be great in this film. When there is no action, the movie will be making jokes and making the theater laugh. Like when Alex's boyfriend Jason (Matt LeBlanc), who has a very small cameo, is rehearsing his scene in an action film and drops the girl after she is shot. Or when Natalie is having one of her dream dance fantasies. The film is a hoot.

Does "Charlie's Angels" stay true to the original, who cares. I really don't care about the original because this film is spectacularly done. It is complete with everything real and unreal about Hollywood. Do not worry about plot, dialog or direction, because all of it is great. Just watch it to see Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore kick major butt. Watch it and then watch the smile on your face at the end.
