I thought i'd start this thread since no one else has yet. I'll try to keep the spoilers to a minimum. Don't worry, you'll be warned if a spoiler's coming up.
I saw it earlier today with my sister and brother in law. My expectations were high going into it from all the hype in the trailers and all. I must say, I walked out of the theatre entertained.
The first time I saw the first movie, I was impressed by the great stunts and slick look of the film. It was a good mix of comedy, t&a, and action. Not only did "Full Throttle" live up to the first one, but surpassed it, IMO.
The storyline with the former angel turned bad seemed like a thin plot at first but with all the other twists, turns, and factors they threw in, it kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat the whole movie. There was never a dull moment.
"Full Throttle" opens up with a big 'kick your ass' scene with a finish that must be seen to believe. Then it would dip into the bonding of the girls as friends, maybe a production number, more joking, then back to the ass kicking again. That sorta seemed like how the cycle went for this one. But not like it was a boring-ass cycle at all.
Bernie Mac was just great as Bosley spouting some great one-liners.
The 3 of course were in great form as the Angels. You can easily see the chemistry between them and they work together well.
I especially enjoyed Cameron Diaz's performance in this one. She just seems to shine in those dance numbers and she's just too damn cute.
The stunts, can't forget the stunts. It wasn't the type of movie where everything is supposed to be taken seriously and all. It's meant to be very over-the-top and cartoonish. There's some wacky happenings especially during the dirt bike race scene. You'll definitely be sitting there in shock.
Demi Moore as the evil former angel was good. She played well as the sexy/vixen type.
After watching the movie, it's kinda sad to see that it had such a bad opening weekend last week. IMO, it was much better than the first movie. It's probably more entertaining than The Hulk as well.
I'm not a professional reviewer but I love watching movies and being entertained, and Charlie's Angels 2: Full Throttle was definitely an entertaining and fun experience.
You're not gonna get bored.
(wow, I actually wrote this without giving any spoilers)
Ah, PG-13 rated T n' A. Such fun. This might've been the first movie ever to apparently make itself up as it went along, but I must admit, I was entertained.
Some of the stuff was just randomly great. Having not seen the first one, the cameos (Luke Wilson, Matt LeBlanc, John Cleese and BRUCE F'N WILLIS) all came as a surprise. And even Robert Patrick was thrown in there...awesome.
Favourite unintentionally hilarious moment. The psycho Irish guy walks through the fire to threaten Drew Barrymore, and after she runs off, he turns around and walks back THROUGH THE FIRE.

Q: If you could have one superpower -- the strength of 100 men, invisibility, or the ability to fly -- which would you choose and why?
Michael Vick: Oh man, invisibility. If I was in a bad situation or something or I said something or you know, caught with two girls I could just disappear. I could be gone just like that -- no trouble.
"I don't understand the creative process. Actually, I make a concerted effort not to understand it. I don't know what it is or how it works but I am terrified that one green morning it will decide not to work anymore, so I have always given it as wide a bypass as possible."-- William Goldman
Oh yeah, I did also taste test the Mt Dew. After several back and forth tastes, I decided that the Mt Dew Throwback is actually a little tarter than the standard Mt Dew. Not sure why, but it was interesting.
