Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (2003)
Insert plot of Mission: Impossible here (but make it entirely incomprehensible).
McG quickly eliminates all goodwill earned by the fun first instalment. The pre-credits sequence is bearable, the title sequence okay but once Bruce Willis gets his cameo done and dusted, McG simply jettisons all sense of coherence and makes the rest of the movie a personal challenge to sit through; it’s you versus McG. Occasional moments in the stuntwork look really impressive but McG only really delivers on a couple of entertaining dance sequences. McG definitely has plenty of ideas; it’s just a shame they were all bad (including an HILARIOUS storyline where John Cleese thinks his daughter is an expensive prostitute). The remainder of the movie lacks the sense of fun and camararderie required and the girls aren’t always photographed and made-up favourably (Jaclyn Smith proves far more attractive at 56).
This movie contains extremely strong sexual double-speak, mild bad language and strong, boring and remarkably unconvincing martial arts violence, graphic blade violence, strong melee violence, graphic gun violence, unpleasant scenes and sexually-themed scenes.
