Phew. So what’s the downside? Well, there is nothing here that wasn’t on the US Blu-ray counterpart. Doesn’t sound like much of a negative? Ok, well how about this: the extras are also identical to the original SD-DVD release. We really are getting nothing new, even after all these years. Still, I suppose we should be grateful that at least all the extras were ported over for this BD release.
Charlie’s Angels is vapid nonsense, a plot-less, over-the-top exercise in silly action and Matrix-lite martial arts that is really little more than an excuse to have three stunning actresses strutting around the screen in a succession of equally gorgeous outfits. Beyond this, the film is marginally saved by the fact that it blatantly is not taking itself seriously – at all – and by the inherent fun that the cast are clearly having doing it. Fun which contagiously suckers you in, and will more than likely keep you entertained for the thankfully short duration. Rewatch value? Zero. (Although there is that part with Cameron Diaz's ass...) On UK Region Free Blu-ray we get decent enough video and audio, and all of the extras ported over from the original SD-DVD release, but there’s isn’t a huge reason to upgrade unless you really, really love this film. It’s harmless, brainless, throwaway Saturday afternoon fun and should probably be treated as such.
