Not as good as the first, but still good just the same....was surprised to see Demi Moore in it! Lot's of action!

"First of all, I think the other reviewers who gave this movie such a bad rating were maybe taking the movie too seriously or something. I thought it was very funny and I personally did not like the first one because I did not think it was nearly as funny.
Give the movie a shot. If you rent it and after watching it you hate it, then you are only out about $3."

"The "Charlie's Angels" films are much like the opera. You either love it or hate it. I personally like 'em (this film was much better than "The Matrix Reloaded". That movie was pure geekboy trash (yes, I got all the metaphysical monkey crap & I still hated it)). In "Full Throttle", the Angels are hired by the Justice Department to retrieve a set of titanium rings that have secured files (once hooked up and downloaded onto a computer) of all the applicants of the witness protection program. If fallen into the wrong hands, these files can be bought and sold at a mighty high price. The film itself, just like the original, doesn't take itself seriously (come on people, its based on a jiggly 70's T.V. show for God's sake!). The Angels do have there own personal problems, among the best of them is, Dylan worrying if the Angels might be splitting up (Dylan has a vision of the future Angels, among them, her being teamed up with the Olsen twins!). The soundtrack is great including songs from Rob Zombie, Loverboy, The Beach Boys, and Pink. The action is, sadly, what bogs the movie down. It's great to have a cool action sequence in a film like this, but, when the film relies way, way too much on "Matrix" style fighting and "Bullit" Time slow-motion, you can't help, but, role your eyes and feel there should be something original in its place. The action is also way too cartoonish. I'm not a big fan of motorcross but even I know a cyclist can't do a handstand, pull out a gun, fire off three shots, turn back around, and land perfectly on the ground! If there is a third film, McG should calm the action down quite a bit(how about just a plain old shoot out or bar fight w/ no slow-motion?) and have a good solid plotline (how about something along the lines: The Angels have to catch a killer who is slowly wiping out former Angel members). Overall, the movie is worth the rent."

"McG (Hot Wheels, Fast Lane) directed this sequel to his first film which was well received but the critics and the public. This film has the same flashing cuts, shots and fast action that it is really eye candy for the audiences.The other thing this movie has going for it is the ability to make the absurd fun and believable in the story of the movie. It is funny and sharp and it looks like all three angels are having great fun doing this movie.Cameron Diaz (Shred 1 & 2, Vanilla Sky) , Drew Barrymore (E.T., Everafter, Batman Forever) and Lucy Liu (Chicago, Kill Bill, Alley McBeal) are fantastic, funny, witty, sharp and energetic. They bring color and amazing electricity to the screen. Drew and Cameron look like they have known each other for years. And Drew really shines in this film with an emotional side that saves the lives of her co-workers.Now this movie has agreat villan and played by a talented and fine looking actress named Demi Moore (GI Jane, Hunchbakc of Notre Dame) Demi is funny and amazingly evil. (Not to mention she looks good in a bikini on the beach! Her ex - Bruce Willis (Die Hard 1, 2 & 3) even makes an appearance..although short.Crispen Glover (Back To the Future, Willard) is cleverly back as well as Mat Lablanc (Lost In Space, Friends) from the first film. They are hysterical. John Cleese (Die Another Day, Harry Potter 1, 2 & 3) and Robert Patrick (Terminator 2, X-Files) are new comers who add to the story and are quite funny.The worst part of the movie was Bernie Mac (Life, Oceans Eleven). Why was he cast as Bosley? Why him? Gross! I know there was a problem with the studio or stars about Bill Murry - But he was a much better Bosley. Just ignore him......and the movie is really good.The DVD extras are amazing. Deleted scenes, costumes, special effects, bloopers and behind the scenes of the stunts and cycles are amazing Just as fun as the movie itself. Watch all of it too! This is a good movie and DVD to have! (11-12-03)"

"I like this movie as you read above. Some sequals seem to be very [bad]. This is an exception. This is similar to the second one but a little better. I like how they had John Cleese in it. They also had a few cameos that where interesting, i think one was Bill Murray, and another one Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. This movie kept my attention the whole way through and it didn't seem like it was all going too fast or slow so it had a great flow of the story line. I say get this movie and hope for a sequal."
