This movie hasn't been released yet, so what can I write? The Charlie's Angels review (Semester 1, 2001), was uninspirational, but I remember it as a bloody enjoyable movie. Natalie, Dylan & Alex were three Americans provided with limitless resources, tight clothes, and cute scripts in order to save the world (or at least the American bits of it) from just about anybody, really.
The Internet Movie Database says of Full Throttle: "Plot Outline: The Angels investigate a series of murders that occur after the theft of a witness protection profile database. Their prime suspects? A 'fallen angel' (Moore), who was once their ally, and the Creepy Thin Man (Glover)."
If Drew, Lucy & Cameron weren't babe enough for you, this has Demi thrown in too!
Also on the cast list are John Cleese as Alex' father, and Daxing Zhang as the Demented Mongol. NOT on the cast list is Bill Murray

No, I don't get the significance of the '2' either. The tagline is no more enlightening and I think it must be a symptom of jaded Hollywood marketeers struggling for a new hip hop/R'n'B angle. Maybe there is some street significance unfathomable to such a naive Canberran as yours truly.
To the film however - and what a film it is. Jet Li plays the role of a slick Chinese police official (surprise, surprise) in the pursuit of some black diamonds that have been stolen first by DMX and then by the real bad guys (we know they're bad because they're rich and they also stole DMX's daughter). In a shocking twist, DMX and Jet Li unite against the bad guys and attempt to rescue the diamonds, which have some strange, malignant alter ego as weapons grade plutonium (oh, and also DMX's daughter, of course).
Obviously you'd have to be a cretin to watch this movie for the plot - especially since I've just told you most of it, and with more grace than the film does, I might add. However, you should watch it for the excellent fight scenes, especially the one where Jet Li takes on even more combatants at once than usual - and, what's more, in a steel cage! Also, somebody strips - so it's all-round good wholesome family fun; bring Grandma, she'll love it
