Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (2003)


“Angels are like diamonds. They can’t be made, you have to find them. Each one is unique.” – Kelly Garrett

Number of Times Seen – Twice (3 Nov 2003 and 12 May 2021)

Brief Synopsis – After a top secret list of undercover spies is stolen, the Angels are sent to try and stop the list from being exposed.

My Take on it – Terrible sequel that doesn’t work at all.

The story as presented here doesn’t seem original enough and is far too similar to the plot of the first Mission Impossible (1996).

The action scenes are a bit too over the top and they fail to make things more engaging and interesting as the story unfolds.

Bernie Mac is great as the new Bosley in the film and helps add a bit to the fun along the way, but it unfortunately isn’t enough.

The John Woo style that McG implements here is too much and the film focuses too heavily on the action aspects because the plot is so thin and weak.

By far the weakest of the three films based on the hit TV series from the 70’s and it’s no surprise that they didn’t even attempt to make a third one with these characters and actresses afterwards.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Drew Barrymore really wanted Bon Jovi’s “Living on a Prayer” in a flashback scene. However, the rights to the song were too expensive, so Barrymore called Jon Bon Jovi told him how much she loved the song and how important it was to her that it be in the scene, and Bon Jovi found a loophole to enable them to use the song. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (3/10)
