What's it about? Based on the 1976 television show and the 2000/2003 films, this Charlie's Angels follows 3 (really 4) badass women on an international rollercoaster mission to prevent the weaponization of a new tech product.

The plot is truly a rollercoaster. With 9 potential characters that could be a villain, the duplicity of the many characters keeps you on an exciting and suspenseful ride through to the very end.
The action is top notch. The film features roughly 6 awesome action sequences including a vicious brawl in a rock quarry.
The clothes rock. As a homosexual who loves fashion, I was truly drooling at the wardrobe of the entire cast. Hats off to costume designer Kym Barrett.
The music should not be understated. Ariana Grande co-executive produced the soundtrack, which is full of gems.
The acting is not Oscar worthy, but it's undeniably enjoyable.
The Less Great
The pacing gets a little slow at times. Yes I just praised the plot and I stand by that, but there are moments that make you think "ok keep going."
This film is a reboot of a beloved franchise and deserves to be seen. It is not making financial waves, but it's a truly delightful night at the movies.
