Storyline Heading
What can be done when Eric Knox, a soon-to-be billionaire, is kidnapped from his own office at Knox Technologies, and the company is in jeopardy of losing a billion dollars? Under the sure hand of their suave playboy boss, notorious for his clever ways of avoiding face-to-face meetings with his employees, the Angels use feminine charm, high-tech gadgets and hand-to-hand combat to save themselves, Charlie and thousands of innocent people.
DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Comedy - Charlie's Angels is a high-energy action-comedy based on the 1970s television series. Fans of fast-paced martial arts action films like The Matrix will probably be most interested in the film, as will younger male viewers interested in the female leads. Older viewers will probably find the film too loud and too frantically-paced. Some fans of Hong Kong action and other high-tech action films could appreciate elements of pop culture parody.

Critic's Review Heading
Above Average
By any reasonable filmmaking standard, Charlie's Angels is a mess, a bizarre attempt to mix '70s cheesecake with '00s computer-enhanced James Bond-ian action. It's infuriating not to be able to shred it to ribbons for being the geek-boy wet dream it clearly was meant to be, but there's just too much wild amusement here to dismiss. Music video/commercial director McG has put together an awkwardly-made, marvelously out-of-control Hollywood contraption with an uneven tone and erratic pacing. All that said, it's still more fun than Mission: Impossible 2, or The World Is Not Enough, or virtually any other recent high-tech caper you'd care to name.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Not surprisingly, teens enjoyed "Charlie's Angels" the most. Only a very small percent of moviegoers didn't care for it. My guess is, they weren't well informed about the type of movie they were going to see, because it was exactly what the previews indicated it would be. A fun, over the top action flick with little substance. Luckily most moviegoers knew this and rated this movie quite high.

While this type of movie is fun and certainly entertaining, it's not likely a movie you're going to remember as one of the best movies you've seen. This is strictly "turn off you mind and enjoy" filmmaking.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
A trio of elite private investigators armed with the latest in high-tech tools, high- performance vehicles, martial arts techniques and a vast array of disguises unleash their state- of-the-art skills on land, sea and air to track down a kidnapped computer ace and keep his top- secret voice-identification software out of lethal hands.

They're beautiful, they're brilliant, and they work for Charlie. In Charlie's Angels, a sexy, high-octane update of the original 70s action-comedy TV series, Natalie (Cameron Diaz), Dylan (Drew Barrymore) and Alex (Lucy Liu), alongside faithful lieutenant Bosley (Bill Murray), must foil an elaborate murder-revenge plot that could not only destroy individual privacy worldwide, but spell the end of Charlie and his Angels.

Eric Knox (Sam Rockwell), the handsome, brainy founder of Knox Technologies, has just been kidnapped from his own office. Knox has designed a voice-identification software program that works more accurately than current fingerprinting techniques—a scientific breakthrough that would mean disaster in the wrong hands.

Following Knox's disappearance, Knox Technologies President Vivian Wood (Kelly Lynch) knows there's only one man—and three smart, sexy detectives—to turn to. Hired to track down Knox, Charlie's Angels set their sights on his rival, Roger Corwin (Tim Curry), who owns Red Star Systems, the world's largest telecommunications satellite network.

Undercover as geishas, belly dancers and racecar drivers, the Angels and Bosley search for clues and further infiltrate Corwin's circle of friends and business associates. It appears the Angels are well on their way to solving their biggest case yet... until Dylan discovers a secret that puts all their lives—including Charlie's—in danger once again.
