Sabina Wilson (Kristen Stewart), Elena Houghlin (Naomi Scott), and Jane Kano (Ella Balinska) are working for the mysterious Charles Townsend (Robert Clotworthy), whose security and investigative agency has expanded internationally. With the world's smartest, bravest, and most highly trained women all over the globe, there are now teams of Angels guided by multiple Bosleys taking on the toughest jobs everywhere.

In the first chase scene where the assassin is following with a machine gun, Bosley jerks the car to the right where there are pedestrians and a bicyclist next to a hedge, but somehow they all disappear as the scene progresses. See more »

I think women can do anything.

Well, I mean, just because they can, doesn't mean they should, right?

A chick fighting film with an undeserved popular franchise title
Now I'm a huge fan of the last two films with Cameron, Drew and Lucy so instantly I was a little nervous for this reboot with three new Angels.
Sadly this reboot is nothing like the previous two films. I struggled to see any strong chemistry between the girls, and just felt like they were three different individuals doing their own thing on the same mission.
I applaud Elizabeth Banks for having her hands all over this project, but she needed to take about 100 steps back from the acting part, and maybe some of the script writing too. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of Elizabeth Banks but her as Bosley... Ugh! The movie is about Charlie's Angel's.. Not Bosley's Angels. Elizabeth's character was there in ever scene, every mission, every single moment, that she was almost trying to be one of the Angels.
Going back to this being Charlie's Angels.. The movie barely even mentions him and you have to wait till a end credit scene to hear the famous line "good morning Angels".
I can see where Elizabeth was heading with this film making it a strong female message but this is such a iconic franchise that some changes should not have been made.
Surprisingly Kristen Stewart was actually decent in this film and was the glue to the film.
I was left heartbroken and devastated with how this reboot turned out.
