Charlie's Angels 2019

As a massive fan of the original movies with Diaz, Barrymore and Liu, this movie coud never stand up to that but it manages to be it's own thing almost like a younger version of the angels. At times it feels more like a live-action Totally Spies movie than a Charlie's Angels due to it's lack of self aware and campy moments, the sexiness of the original movies also gets turned down and replaced with a sense of feminism that at times just feels forced.

The three main ladies do a fair job but never get to shine as distinctive personalities, Naomi Scott is definetly the best of the group with comedic moments and out of all the characters she seems the most real.

Elizabeth Banks should probably focous more on acting and even producing because i don't think directing is for her, there is nothing speacial about this and could have easily been directed by someone with alot more experinced in action scenes and twists.

The Twist at the end was almost expected but it still had some elements of surprise which makes you a bit more enegaged with the action that is developing.

This new version of Charlie's Angels is not as fun and campy as previous ones so I don't see it having any replayability beyond the first watch, which is a diservice to the brand.
