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!

I’ve never really paid much attention to this franchise. This was the first Charlie’s Angels I had seen and I actually really enjoyed it. (I didn’t have much to go off of though). I enjoyed the actors/actresses and thought this was a great cast! It was funny and kept my attention the whole time. If you’re looking for some laughs, some action, and adventure....then is is a great movie!

The weird green screen with over lit actors in a dark background is jarring. Effects and stunts that are supposed to make you awe over how cool they are look like they have been maid by someone that just learned how to use Adobe Creative Suite on Lynda.com.

The story and actions is typical of a Charlie's Angels movie.

Bad visual effects ruin this otherwise worthy popcorn flick.

Bad movie. Not sure what they were thinking, but this movie is terrible. Bad script, bad plot, bad everything! Miss it - go back to the earlier ones with Drew Barrymore - much better.

The 2019 reboot of the Charlie's Angels franchise is an obvious nod to the push for women empowerment, that could have been executed better. The plot puts much emphasis on women being inferior to men, however does it in a way that is more predictable and lack-lustre than it could have been. The star studded cast includes Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Elizabeth Banks who also directed the film. I really enjoyed Kristen Stewart's performance, which was much difference from her rather dry and emotion-less acting reputation. Naomi Scott's character was rather "cutesy", and I felt much more drawn to Jane played by Ella Balinska who I'd really like to see more of. A mediocre and slightly forgettable action movie, and likely wouldn't watch again. 3.5 Stars

Merely OK, although it was fun seeing my beloved Kristen Stewart lighten up and smile.
Most of her post-"Twilight" roles have had such a high angst quotient.
But Elizabeth Banks was clearly the wrong director for this movie. She lacks the action chops to pull off the numerous setpieces, most of which fall flat.
For a better femme-directed action/comedy hybrid, check out 2018's "The Spy Who Loved Me" w/ Mila Kunis and the SNL lady.
