The crap legacy
I loved the original movie, most of all Fairuza Balk who was great in it, but also the other girls, the acting, the storytelling. In it, a young innocent is co opted into a witch coven where one of the girls wanted power more than anything. It was a story about control, morality, growing as a person. And it was visually well crafted, pardon the pun. You genuinely felt the magic, the empowerment and the dangers that come with it.
Skip forward 24 years and it is all about females fighting males, having all ethnicities represented, being woke and not being able to act in a movie. Not only is it the film bad as it is - I wasn't really expecting a masterpiece - but it is insulting. It starts with the same basic premise, but the girls get into their power really fast and the first thing they do is decide who's an asshole and mind rape him. But no, that was OK. Since now he was woke, therefore attractive to them, they do it again, with a love spell. It is played and directed as it is one big joke, so there is no threat, no drama, nothing else to do. It is then necessary to bring in another threat that would make the behavior of these girls acceptable by comparison. I can't reveal it without spoiling the film, but believe you me, there is nothing to spoil.
Bottom line: rarely have I seen such a soulless money grab that brings nothing artistic to the table at all. Avoid at all costs.
