Charlies Angels 12A
1h 58min Action, Adventure, Comedy
When a young systems engineer blows the whistle on a dangerous technology, Charlie's Angels are called into action, putting their lives on the line to protect us all.
Director: Elizabeth Banks
Stars: Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska, Patrick stewart
Well, we had the 2000 and 2003 versions of the TV classic which scored 5.5 and 4.9 respectively on the User ratings.
But, and it's a big but, both made plenty of money, in the main thanks to the cast, Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, Cameron Diaz. The least said about Bernie Mac as Bosley the better in “full throttle”, Bill Murray was debatable but worked ok in the first.
(Charlies Angels 2000 Budget $93m, Box Office $264m
Charlie’s Angels Full Throttle 2003 $259m Budget, Box Office $259m)
Now to confuse matters in this modern update we also have 3 Bosleys, along with our 3 heroines played by Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska and to be fair their chemistry was a little weak at times.
There are some really good action sequences though and the girls as you’d expect crack skulls and kick ass but it’s not new we’ve seen girls doing it before and so much better.
If you’ve never seen a female action film in your life then yes it is worth a watch and if you like any of the actors, then yes it is worth a watch.
Will it do similar Box Office to its predecessors, it looks very doubtful early doors. It was planned for release at the same time as “Terminator Dark Fate” in the US but fears that it would be affected delayed this so it was released with “Le Mans 66” and the “Good Liar”. It still struggled to hit its opening week-end targets.
