SISTERS ARE DOIN' IT FOR THEMSELVES.... or
ANYTHING YOU CAN DO, I CAN DO AS SEMI-COMPETENTLY...
Elizabeth Banks stepping up again, and taking a hard turn against the male heirachal system with the revamp here... the cast of leads did not over impress me; and a heavy dosing of short hand back story to fill in the blanks. Sir Stewart as the villian (from what I've
heard of the series PICARD, maybe it's just as well...) the fomulaic rounding does deliver as the original did a generation ago, and now we have the benefit of those "Angels" to blaze this trail for those who today still are suppressed and marginalised despite their talents and aspirations...
Makes me proud to hate myself for being a man who in all likelihood would be as conniving, underhanded and barely capable as the 2nd male lead villian.. Djimon Honsou was lucky to get out early, but I would not be too surprised to see a franchise fester from this effort; if only to wipe the smug grin off my chauvinist face from record box office, theme singles and fast food tie ins....

Wow this is bad, I am not sure if it is the acting, or the script. The ending was the only good part of the movie. The directing was good and the camera angles were fine. They just seemed to want to cram it with a bunch meaningless events then a great ending. Pass it by

Yes! Girl action movies! I enjoyed the original Charlie's angels from the 70s and the 2000s version. Girls fighting evil with amazing movies, and always looking good. Love the characters! I really dislike Kristen Stewart in the Twilight movies, but this movie, I got to see a side to Kristen that I really enjoyed.

The franchise reboot that literally NO ONE asked for.
Wasn't even good in a corny funny sense. This was just downright boring.
Sad to say that as I LOVED the Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, Cameron Diaz movies and the whole Charlie's Angels concept.

I thought the plot was lacking, but I did like the music and the actresses in this movie. I definitely preferred the previous Charlie's Angels films.

This movie has been unfairly lambasted. It's a great deal of fun, full of competent women who are good at their jobs and use the tendency of men to not see women as a threat to their advantage. Kristen Stewart is adorably awkward and funny and I'd love to see her in more roles like this, rather than attempting to play it serious. The fight scenes were action-packed, ranging from car chases and fire fights to fist fights and tranquilizer tabs. What I enjoyed most is that this movie was NOT male gazey. If the women wore a skimpy outfit, the focus was always on what they were doing, not on their cleavage or butts. There was no risk of sexual assault or rape, no gratuitous violence inflicted upon them.

So what if there's not much surprise in the plot? We don't lambast men for making action movies where some taciturn, muscle-bound bundle of ManPain walks around blowing stuff up to compensate for his suffering. Why do we have a problem with this great team of women - each smart and accomplished in her own way - doing what they do, doing it well, with a sense of humor and loving it? I would dearly love to see more movies like this.

"Charlie’s Angels" is really fun, total eye candy, and really a good time. Don't listen to the critics. Watch it and judge for yourself.

I mean, if we're going to keep churning out meaningless action films, I'd much rather watch Kristen Stewart beat up a bunch of dudes than witness Tom Cruise break more bones in increasingly outlandish Mission Impossible stunts. Like, KStew is just so much more enjoyable. And she's FUNNY. A nice quarantine watch.

I enjoyed this movie, and can honestly say I actually enjoyed this version more than the original reboot movie with Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu (though I can’t say I ever watched the original series.) there were a few key reveals that were made that I didn’t necessarily care for, however I won’t spoil that here for those who plan to watch the movie. Overall it was a great movie and I would recommend watching it! Had plenty of laughs and quite a bit of action!

I’ve never really paid much attention to this franchise. This was the first Charlie’s Angels I had seen and I actually really enjoyed it. (I didn’t have much to go off of though). I enjoyed the actors/actresses and thought this was a great cast! It was funny and kept my attention the whole time. If you’re looking for some laughs, some action, and adventure....then is is a great movie!

The weird green screen with over lit actors in a dark background is jarring. Effects and stunts that are supposed to make you awe over how cool they are look like they have been maid by someone that just learned how to use Adobe Creative Suite on Lynda.com.

The story and actions is typical of a Charlie's Angels movie.

Bad visual effects ruin this otherwise worthy popcorn flick.
