It beats the similar opener to this year's Mission: Impossible 2 and it could make you wonder if Bond has ever done it better.
Los Angeles Times:
Though all this is fun and engaging in short bursts ... it wears thin and strains our patience when stretched to cover even this film's brief 92-minute length.
Paul Clinton (CNN.com),
Despite the fact that the film loses its razor sharp pacing and muddles its storyline, the movie still features plenty of big explosions, loud music and bare flesh.
Globe and Mail:
A speedy, ask-no-questions pop contrivance that, as long as it keeps sparkling and whirling, continually amuses.
New York Magazine/Vulture:
The cast members seem to be having a high old time, and with sharper dialogue, an even higher time might have been had by all.
You'd have to be a hopeless curmudgeon not to be entertained on some juvenile level by this motion picture.
Charlie's Angels is like the trailer for a video game movie, lacking only the video game, and the movie.
As a director, McG is far too hyperactive to hold the story together neatly.
Charlie's Angels is like a Hong Kong flick but without the bogus spirituality and excruciating schlock-pop ballads.
This is nothing but trailer moments. Ex-pop video director McG couldn't organise a pillow fight in a bedding factory.
This entertaining confection possesses the substance of the TV show, the pacing of a Hong Kong actioner and the production values of a James Bond thriller.
