2019s ‘Charlie’s Angels’ is a fun watch with a great cast, especially a scene-stealing Kristen Stewart (she has a dance number and I need her in a ‘Step Up’ movie ASAP). I really hope this does well, as there is huge potential for sequels exploring all these new Angels. If you like pure joy, I highly recommend checking it out on the big screen.

A pointless reboot for the Woke generation. I wouldn't mind quite so much if the director focused more on a believable storyline than a Twitter-pleasing one instead.
Banal to the extreme, a complete waste of time and money: these contemporary iP reboots simply are not working, especially when the political dogma is more or less forced down one's throats for the sake of a good story,
what a junk, is all i can say
I really did want to like it.
So many of these girl-power-team-up action films that we've gotten in the past decade feel so hollow. Don't get me wrong, I know there is a huge sect of assholes that were absolutely unwilling to ever give this movie a chance, and had pre-ordained that it would be terrible and they hate it before a single frame was shot, and that almost every single dude in that sect made that decision specifically because of the fact that it's a movie with women in the forefront, and it is good and right to target those dudes with your derision. But having actually watched it... Yeah it's feminism with a teeny splash of gay but like... It's a very **corporate** feminism and a very **under-the-rug-able** gay. Which isn't good, but could have been fine, except that it was the only thing that I was looking forward to, and also seems to be what makes _Charlie's Angels_ think it has done enough. But it's so boardroom driven and paper-thin, which I could hack if the actual plot was any good or any number of other things that you normally look to a movie for, but by and large those aspects aren't just hollow, they're straight-up bad.
_Final rating:★★ - Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
