I'm not really sure that in 2019 the world was clamoring for another CHARLIE'S ANGELS reboot, but we got one anyway. Thankfully, it isn't terrible.
This reboot is more "women power" than the previous iterations, but it still feels like it spends a lot of time objectifying women. Apparently the only way to fight crime is while wearing skin tight booty shorts.
The plot is one we've seen a thousand times in spy flicks. There is nothing new or special to make this movie worth your time. The acting is okay, but nothing special, and the dialogue is pretty cheesy.
There are a few exciting and somewhat suspenseful scenes, but it isn't like the whole movie is that way. In fact most of the film is pretty slow-paced. It does pick up a bit towards the end, but not enough to make up for the slow start.
The best part of the flick is the last few minutes where we get a ton of fun and funny cameos. That is about the only thing that makes this a movie worth watching.
If you like formulaic spy movies, then you may find this one tolerable, but it isn't one you are going to be overly excited about seeing.
