I believe they should have made Kristen Stewart gayer in this motion picture.
Contender for worst trailer relative to movie in 2019, Charlie's Angels wears its Girl Power on its sleeve and that's just fine with me. Such things always seem a little old-fashioned to me, but then I look up and see all the bros and 'gaters spamming the Internet with their misogyny and I think, yeah, we're still there, fight on, Angels. Spy comedies are totally my jam, so though Liz Banks' flick has all the usual tropes - the race for the MacGuffin, the mole plot, etc. - that's just a rope on which to hang action and comedy. On the action front, it's got some very good fights (if sometimes cut a little finely) and fun infiltration shenanigans. And it's genuinely funny. Kristen Stewart's character especially - it's not just how she's written, but the subtle things she brings to the performance - but she's not alone. Patrick Stewart, Luis Gerardo Méndez, Sam Claflin, and Banks herself also have fun moments. Paying tribute to past iterations of the Angels, including allowing just the right dash of camp to the proceedings, the movie also expands on the world, in a way that reminded me of John Wick. I almost turned to my (female) neighbor in the theater to ask "Are YOU an Angel?". Fun stuff. Stay through the end credits for a string of amusing cameos.
The plot was a little flimsy, the storyline could be better. But the action scenes were very decent as well as the acting. Plus Stewart is h o t.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
