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 t... Read More »

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

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.

Only a handful of quotes in IMDb. Here are the bantering between Jonny and Sabina:

I think women can do anything.
-Well, I mean, just because they can, doesn't mean they should, right? Think about women fixing cars, driving a taxi, installing some drywall.
Why not?
-No. Look, trust me. A girl like you, you don't really want this.
A girl like me? Mm-hm. I mean, I want all my options available so I can decide for myself.
-Ah, Miss Independent.
That's right. That's me.
===
I have dreamed of this moment since the day I met you. Except your hair was longer. But I like this too. This is great.
-Hey. Don't even think about it.
You want to run away with me?
-Oh, you're so desperate.
===
Australian Jonny. The one that got away.
-Yeah, again. The last time we saw him, we were in Rio, and then... You pushed me off a roof.
You have got to get over that.
===
Oh, Miss Independent.

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!
