Charlie’s Angels (2019)

The second reboot of Charlie’s Angels presents a worldwide secret mission force of women, represented in this movie by Elizabeth Banks (who also directed), Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska.

It didn’t do well at the box office, which was blamed on the fact that so many men have issues with women in power. I’m not qualified to comment on these matters, but for what it’s worth, I liked the movie. It’s nothing groundbreaking, but it’s frothy fun, as they say.

In this universe, the name Bosley is a title given to those that command the agents. One of them, played by Patrick Stewart, has gone rogue and the agents must stop him. If you are wondering, “Isn’t this the same plot as the sequel to the last reboot?” you may not be wrong.

The film does attempt to fit itself in some universe building by showing photos of past Angel teams including the original Angels (Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith, Farrah Fawcett and Cheryl Ladd) and the early 2000’s version (Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu, and Drew Barrymore).
