Saw the new Charlie's Angels movie last night. Ian is calling it the "Triumph of style over substance." Lovable fluff. Refuses to take itself seriously. And obvious that cast and crew had a great time making it. I have to wonder though, how many sprained ankles there were, all those flips and kicks and other stunts, all done in insanely high heels.
It's good to see female action heroes, even if they're framed in a purely fantasy world. I'd like to see a movie that tries to stay as close to reality as possible but still has a female lead kicking butt. There was a preview for SWAT before Angels, a new cop action movie starring Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Farrell, and Michelle Rodriguez. The preview looked good, but I'm worried that the token woman on the team will meet an early and untimely end.
