Atom User Reviews for Charlie's Angels
This new entry into the Charlie's Angels franchise tries to tie into the previous iterations while remaining fresh. The new take on the Townsend organization provides for a lot of interesting prospects. The actresses all perform exceptionally and jump into the action without any hesitation providing the right amount of humor and action. Their characters are also refreshingly flawed while remaining competent and unique allowing them to stand out more as actual people. The only downside of the movie is the somewhat predictable plot. Outside of that the characters and actresses more than make up for the somewhat cliched plot. I would not be opposed to a sequel to this fresh take on Charlie's Angels.
It was trash.... I can’t believe it was that bad.
A sexist movie where all the women are perfect all the men die or are evil pigs. Who is this for??
Walked out one hour too far into movie
Although it was predictable, it was also entertaining.
Banks brings Charlie’s Angels into the modern age with flair, all while unapologetically raising a feminist flag, championing female friendships and subtly making a point about the urgency of the ongoing climate crisis.
Not quite thrilling or hilarious enough, writer-director Elizabeth Banks’ take on the 1970s television series preaches empowerment and gender equality, and leads Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska prove to be fun company. But this fizzy entertainment is yoked to a dull spy story which recycles genre tropes without adding much that is new to the mix.
The person who makes the new Charlie’s Angels work when it works is Stewart, very much playing against every image of her audiences have built in their minds over the last decade or so.
