I really wanted to love this movie, but it is deplorable on too many fronts. [Alex] “What is wrong with you?” [John Bosley] “No sense of humor, that’s your problem.” That's a great description of this film! This is another bigoted Hollywood film that can only message that women are good by also messaging that men are bad. This film is misandrist. And a bad film. So much so, on both accounts, the mostly liberal media film critics gave it only a 52% on the Tomatometer. Ouch! The original Charlie’s Angels films were comedic action films that were a fun ride while allowing women to be the heroes, and even a few baddies. In this film, all the baddies are men. The frontline comedic chops are provided by Kristen Stewart and Patrick Stewart (no relation, LOL). Have you ever known Kristen Stewart and Patrick Stewart to be hilarious in anything? Me neither. The producers just didn’t seem to have a clue what franchise they were working in. They appear to be so determined to make a film that lifts up women by hating on men that they created exactly what you would expect from such a hateful and bigoted place: a really bad movie.

This movie was not good at all. The lead actresses had no chemistry together, the characters did not have any personalities or things that would make them stand out from other angels from the past. I wasn't a fan of the action or the all girls can be angels message.

The thing that made Drew Barrymore's Charlie's Angeles so fun was the fantastic chemistry between Lucy, her and Cameron. The soundtrack was always banging and the action was always fast and just kick-ass.

If I can say one positive thing about this movie is that I LOVE Kristen Stewart and she was my main reason for not only watching this movie but finishing it too when I simply wanted to stop watching and believe me, 20 minutes into the movie and I was ready to quit.

A reboot I can finally get behind!! I really enjoyed Elizabeth Banks' take on this mostly female detective agency. One of the elements we found appealing were the links they made with other incarnations of the Townsend Agency (some of the CGI looked a little photoshopped though) rather than completely disavowing what had come before.

Strong female characters, female writers, female director--and a strong soundtrack make this movie a good date night or if you have older children, family viewing. I hope to see more female lead movies coming to screens soon.

This was another fun Charlie’s Angels movie. I enjoyed it. My daughter enjoyed it. Is the movie or any of the players going to win an Oscar for it? No. Is it worthwhile to see and light-heartedly entertaining? Absolutely!

This is an ok action movie. I'm still not a fan of Kristen Stewart; I think she's awful at acting. Not a must watch, but a decent one to see during this pandemic.

A continuation of the reboot from the original series (there's a cute nostalgia scene of previous Angels in the first half of the movie), the film just didn't hold up. A lot of flash and action scenes, plenty of glitz, glam, and bling, but not enough 'heart' or character development to make me care about the Angels as individuals. We get splashes and hints of backstory, but without a payoff or follow through, there's really no point in having backstory and character development at all. There's a few moments where the cast is able to shine together. but with stilted dialog it's really very brief. The one other small bright spot of the film is the end credits, where we see additional Angels performing various tasks and challenges.

Charlie’s Angels is a very enjoyable movie. The movie is about a group of female private agents, who are known as “Charlie’s Angels” that are sent on a very cool mission. It’s one of my favourite action movies to watch. I really enjoyed the plot and the suspense that was in this movie. The movie is also really funny, and it’s great to watch with your friends or family. The action and comedy in this movie are really great, and the actors have done an incredible job. This movie is really good, and you would enjoy it a lot if you like action, and comedy! I rate this movie a 4/5.

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....

Sabina Wilson: Wait. Why would Bosley want to take Elena to Brok?

Bosley: Bringing the Birdman back to Alcatraz, I guess.

Saint: The who?

Bosley: It's a movie. Burt Lancaster.

Sabina Wilson: Birdman. Michael Keaton.

Bosley: No, Michael Keaton is Batman.

Saint: No, Ben Affleck is Batman.

Bosley: I mean, is he? Am I really the only person here who knows who Burt Lancaster is?

Sabina Wilson: I'm concussed.

Bosley: It doesn't matter. It's an old movie. It's from, like... ..

Saint: How old ARE you?

Bosley: How old am I? What? That has nothing to do with it.

Saint: I don't have your references.

Bosley: There are film buffs of all ages.

Jane Kano: Let's go get our girl!
