Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu are Charlie's Angels - a trio of elite private investigators who, with the latest in high-tech gadgets, martial arts techniques and a vast array of disguises, unleash their state of the art skills on land, sea and air. Their goal, to track down a kidnapped billionaire-to-be and keep his top-secret voice identification software out of his lethal hands. Aided by their faithful lieutenant Bosley (Bill Murray), and under the sure hand of their suave playboy boss, notorious for his clever ways of avoiding face-to-face meetings, the girls must foil an elaborate murder-revenge plot that could destroy individual privacy and corporate security worldwide.
The perfect girls-night-in film!
- Charlie's Angels review by CP Customer
It can be argued very strongly that this is a trashy Hollywood churned money making film, I however disagree. I understand that this film is not groundbreaking or Oscar worthy. But it is fun, exciting and glamorous, and sometimes that’s all a film need to be! The plot is relatively simple, with a few unexpected twists and turns, with the girls always coming up on top. Visually the film shines, the costumes are beautiful excellently representing the character wearing them and the fighting is extremely stylised. The soundtrack is also excellent and perfectly matches the tone of the film.
It is a very uplifting film and I never fail to smile, no matter how many times I have seen it. It is a definite must for any girls night in!
