Entertaining and a fun movie. Action kept my husband awake. Good story line.
An entertaining movie. Charlie's Angels always performed by the beautiful girls and with action.
Far better than the two previous movies. Better plot and acting. Entertaining.
--- Just finished watching Patrick Stewart's "Star Trek, Picard. Season 1" and looking for more of his films... Unlike in Charlie's Angels, very little action scenes demanded from the octogenarian. Comment on Jul 24, 2020 ---
Revival of the Angel's franchise films since the 2000 and 2003 films starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu. In this updated version, Kristen Stewart upstaged and overshadowed the other actors by a mile with her killer persona; so much so. that when her character is not the focus on screen, the story seemed to stall. Also, Patrick Stewart, who has just turned 80 years old, was a distraction early on with almost frozen geriatric expressions. With that said, an interesting and twisty action drama when a handful of women save the world from a crafty villain, filmed in Istanbul Turkey and Germany.
Light and entertaining. Good looking girls, nice clothes, scenic views, luxury places, and predicted adventure.
The entire franchise of CHARLIE'S ANGELS - focuses on 1 main viewpoint.
You hear CHARLES (Charlie) BOSLEY on the speaker, and the ANGELS appear in next scene and prepare to fight the bad-guys, for the benefit of the Townsend Agency.
NOW internationally renowned.
This feministic 2020 movie version (Release Date: November 15, 2019) is SO BORING at the least. Every scene is choreographed too well. These Female British Actresses, throughout the entire 2020 REMAKE of CHARLIE'S ANGELS, is so out-of-step (as compared to the original version) [40-years-ago]. I knew from the Beginning to the End of this DVD 1hr-58min-24secs, what was going to happen in the next scene. Every fight scene is so predictable, that you see that it was FAKE.
As this movie franchise shows the next version (1980, 2000, 2003 and 2020), it gets worse and LESS VIEWERS THINK it is enjoyable #as per RATING SCALE [VIEWER INTEREST out of 10] on IMDb website#.

WHEN I SAW THIS DVD MOVIE on NEW-YEARS-EVE 2020: I PERSONALLY AGREE WITH ALL THE 2-STAR-library-REVIEWS, from all the reviews I read AFTER FINISHED WATCHING this DVD on my computer.
I was hoping that this 2020 remake (PG-13#for action/violence#) would be something different then what I have already seen, BUT IT WAS NOT WORTH MY TIME TO EVEN SUGGEST to someone else - to borrow it from library.
Decent reboot with some funny lines and OK action.
Little boys pretending to be men will rip it apart based solely on strong female characters, just like the Ghostbusters reboot and many others. sad
Terrible movie,Kristen Stewart absolutely can't act worth anything.Waste of Sir Patrick Stewart's talent.Bored shitless by movie in general.Again just a way to make more money.Would have rather watched Monte Python then this crap during covid.No stars.Do not recomnend.
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....
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!
