We sadly live in a time where big-budgeted nostalgia pieces are all the rage. With the likes of Bad Boys For Life a month or so away, and plans for a fourth Beverly Hills Cop movie to roll into production soon, ’80s and ’90s reboots and sequels are a big trend but with Charlie’s Angels, actually based on a ’60s television series, was this one on a long list that the world really needed or indeed wanted?
The film is essentially an origin story for a new trio of Angels, made up of Kristen Stewart’s Sabina, Ella Balinska’s Jane and eventually Naomi Scott’s Elena.
