Charlie's Angels (2000) - Synopsis
A trio of elite private investigators armed with the latest in high-tech tools, high-performance vehicles, martial arts techniques and a vast array of disguises unleash their state-of-the-art skills on land, sea and air to track down a kidnapped computer ace and keep his top-secret voice-identification software out of lethal hands.
They're beautiful, they're brilliant, and they work for Charlie. In CHARLIE'S ANGELS, a sexy, high-octane update of the original '70s action-comedy TV series, Natalie (Cameron Diaz), Dylan (Drew Barrymore) and Alex (Lucy Liu), alongside faithful lieutenant Bosley (Bill Murray), must foil an elaborate murder-revenge plot that could not only destroy individual privacy worldwide, but spell the end of Charlie and his Angels.
Eric Knox (Sam Rockwell), the handsome, brainy founder of Knox Technologies, has just been kidnapped from his own office. Knox has designed a voice identification software program that works more accurately than current fingerprinting techniques-a scientific breakthrough that would mean disaster in the wrong hands.
Following Knox's disappearance, Knox Technologies President Vivian Wood (Kelly Lynch) knows there's only one man-and three smart, sexy detectives-to turn to. Hired to track down Knox, Charlie's Angels set their sights on his rival, Roger Corwin (Tim Curry), who owns Red Star Systems, the world's largest telecommunications satellite network.
Undercover as geishas, belly dancers and racecar drivers, the Angels and Bosley search for clues and further infiltrate Corwin's circle of friends and business associates. It appears the Angels are well on their way to solving their biggest case yet… until Dylan responds to a mysterious phone call that puts all their lives-including Charlie's-in danger once again.
Jumping out of planes, rewiring computers, going undercover-it's all in a day's work for Charlie's Angels as they must dish out equal doses of cool detective work, combat skill and lethal feminine charm to survive their riskiest assignment ever.
The film is based on the Television Series Created by Ivan Goff and Ben Roberts.
