The first chase was horrible. Riding the wave of female empowerment, sure, anything to sell. Only guys as villains. Bad CGI. Characters that remind you of the first movie, with a little spiffing to match the times.
So I thought.
They grow on you though, the main Angels, and when Kirsten started making those faces on the boat is the point I think I turned. Became a fan. Started rooting for them instead of being annoyed at how skewed the premise was, and even if it does fall back on cliche occasionally... it's a party movie after all. It leaves you in a good mood. Plane drop and all.
It's not perfect but don't sweat the details.
Wonder if they'll make a part 2 too...
rated 3.5/5: not bad at all
