Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

Who would have thought that director McG could outdo himself in the vapid stakes with the sequel to 2000's vacuous Charlie's Angels? Well, give that man a prize, because despite a higher budget here, he's managed to make the original look like an Oscar winner. More financial flash simply equals more celluloid trash, and no amount of Matrix-style special effects, irritating cameos and tedious skits can disguise that fact. Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu are all very cute as they reprise their special agent roles - this time hunting two stolen rings encrypted with the true identities of incognito federal witnesses - but their endless costume changes and innuendo-riddled dialogue are no substitute for a plot. It's only "fallen" Angel Demi Moore and returning villain Crispin Glover who have any genuine screen presence. Unfortunately, their inadequately scripted roles are entirely ineffective in a picture that's obsessed with style over content.
