From the familiar opening strains of the TV show's music to the end, the movie remains true to the original series, yet is modern and updated. Barry is cute, Liu is tough, and Diaz simply dazzles. Lots of humor and action make this film a must-see. There is one especially hilarious scene that makes fun of engineers. Two of the angels dress up as men, and Liu dons a black leather miniskirt to distract the men. It works very well as the engineers are all falling out of their seats and looking at her in awe as she works the "dominatrix" role.
And it is great to have John Forsythe back as the voice of Charlie. At least he was a good sport about it; a true gentleman like Charlie!
The action is good, the fights are nicely choreographed, the wire-work is outstanding, and the effects don't take over from the very capable actresses. The plot won't be an intellectual challenge for anyone over about age nine, but that's fine.
It's just an action movie with pretty women. That's all. If that sounds good, you'll love it. If not, you probably wouldn't have read this far.
The TV show was a bit before my time, so I really have no frame of reference, but this movie was a lot of fun to watch! Read more
