There are three female thugs under Mr. Charlie. They are both talented and good-looking, and they are good at kung fu. They are specially ordered by Mr. Charlie to bring justice to others. They are: Natalie (Cameron Diaz), Dai Lan (Julie Barrymore) and Alex (Lucy Liu).
They recently accepted a task: Mr. Eric Knox (played by Sam Rockwell) designed a high-tech voice recognition system. Unfortunately, Eric was kidnapped, and the three “angels” need to rescue Eric from criminals. Because this high-tech system designed by Eric, once used by criminals, the consequences will be dire.
After the three “angels” learned of the situation, they quickly thought of Eric’s opponent, and the person in charge, Rogge, became the biggest suspect. The three of them investigated Rogge’s whereabouts day and night, and they also grasped important clues. Just when they were sure to save Eric, a phone call broke all the plans of the three of them.
