Charlie's Angels (2019) by Elizabeth Banks – Review

Although it costs him to start, the action and the tension grow and develop at a constant rate.

East reboot It arrives 19 years after the premiere of the first film, which had Lucy Liu, Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore as the protagonist angels.

Elizabeth Banks directs and acts on this occasion, and the management work has not been given anything wrong to be her first action movie after the musical Pitch Perfect 2 (2015). The script is in charge of Jay Basu, who has already worked on other sagas reinventions such as Millennium: What doesn't kill you makes you stronger (2018), which was also resolved with somewhat topical plots but a solvent action.

There are several successes in the cast, mainly Kristen Stewart's good work with comedy, it's a discovery. Patrick Stewart is also seen as a comfortable and less correct Bosley after the saga X Men, bringing vividness to the plot. And another strategic success is Naomi Scott who, after being Jasmine in Aladdin (2019), reappears as the newbie of the trio of angels, clumsy, funny and intelligent.

It is entertaining, fun at times and a background race as far as the action is concerned.

This film has been branded as "feminist," a label that Americans distribute almost as a seal of quality when they see an eminently feminine cast. You can even talk about empowerment, and the film could pass the Bechdel test, but there is no greater background. It is entertaining, fun at times and a background race as far as the action is concerned.

They have tried to revive the original plots, betting on the action with more weapons and explosives, although there is still a lot of close combat. It contains the elements common to the rest of the films, such as the fight, the peculiar charges -Bosleys- and that union between several groups of angels. It is different from its predecessors, but it lives up to it. Play with the public to find out who the "bad" boss is, and who he has on his team, but the spy plot has no further evolution.

The action and tension grow and develop at a constant rate to create a round outcome. Although it is difficult to start, it does not deflate at any time. Maybe there shouldn't be a second part, something that probably happens. While this is decisive, a continuation – without further innovation – would not be.

There is a scene that plays with funny dialogues, such as the Bosley played by Elizabeth Banks referring to several films and discovering herself as a misunderstood movie buff. The varied costumes are also striking, as are their predecessors. Maybe he could have bet on a reboot of the original format, a series that featured five seasons in the 70s with the iconic Farrah Fawcett at the head of the cast.
