Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle
The 2003 summer action blockbuster Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle comes to DVD in an unrated widescreen special edition from Columbia TriStar. The Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround soundtrack is in English with optional subtitles in English, French, and Korean. There are an insane amount of extra features on this disc. For starters, there's an audio commentary track with screenwriters John August, Cormac Wibberley, and Marianne Wibberley. Director McG provides Telestrator commentary, where he writes on the screen à la Monday Night Football. Yet another track is dubbed the "Angel-Vision Trivia Track," featuring pop-up links. There are a total of eight featurettes. Exclusive to the unrated version, "Turning Angels Into Pussycat Dolls" is a profile of choreographer Robin Antin's so-named dance troupe. "Rolling With the Punches" explores the training and choreography of the many fight scenes. "Learn Why There's No Such Thing as a Short Shot, Only an Overworked Producer" is about making the opening montage. "XXX-Treme Angels" focuses on the Moto-Cross segment. The other featurettes are more self-explanatory. "The Cars of Charlie's Angels" is about the cars,"Costuming an Angel" is about the costumes, and "Designing Angels" is about the production design. In the music area, there's a jukebox that offers a short music clip of the soundtrack songs with commentary by McG and music supervisor John Houlihan. There's also a music video for "Feel Good Time" featuring Pink and William Orbit. More extra features include a guide to celebrity cameos and DVD-ROM links to exclusive online stuff, like the video game and the animated shorts. This disc seems to provide more than anyone could possibly want to know about such a film.
