Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003, USA) C-107m. SCOPE ** D: McG. Starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, Bernie Mac, Crispin Glover, Justin Theroux, Robert Patrick, Demi Moore, Matt LeBlanc, Luke Wilson, John Cleese, Robert Forster, Eric Bogosian, Pink, Carrie Fisher, Bruce Willis, voice of John Forsythe. Sequel to CHARLIE'S ANGELS (2000) bears little resemblance to the hit TV series. The Angels are after two rings which contain information from the witness protection programme, sought after by all syndicates imaginable. This stylized, music video clip-like action movie could be called a fantasy action film with all its unbelievable stunts. Some fun is to be had, if you don't get a headache. Almost on a par with the first movie. Hard to believe this was cowritten by John August (BIG FISH).
