NEW YORK – The Angels are back but can they tame the Hulk and Nemo at this weekend's box office?
Cameron, Drew and Lucy Liu are back, and if you're looking for a plot, sorry Charlie. Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle is a just a great 'girls gone right and wrong' thrill ride.
It's loads of fun according to Variety. Not so great according to The Hollywood Reporter. They say it looks like it was conceived inside a video game controlled by a six year old on a sugar rush. Come to think of it, is that really so bad?
And if you're expecting a lot of Demi Moore after all the hype, sorry, she's in it for about three minutes. Others feel Bernie Mac has done better work. None of this matters. You go girls!
There really is a better movie opening this weekend too -- or at the very least a totally different kind of thrill ride. It's 28 Days Later and it could turn into The Blair Witch Project of 2003. Trembling, petrified, shaky and scared witless, word-of-mouth could make this a very big movie.
In 28 Days Later, the Trainspotting director Danny Boyle puts the zombie genre into overdrive. The result is one of the creepiest movies of this or any year. And in a SARS and post-Sept. 11, environment the storyline is even creepier. I'm not going to say anything else. Run to the theater, and you'll probably run out screaming. And before the movie police point out it's a Fox product let me assure you, I would be raving about this thing no matter what.
Finally, how will The Hulk do this weekend? The box office fall off will probably make him even madder.
