Movie Review Charlie’s Angels – The story
The film kicks off in Rio de Janeiro, with Sabina Wilson (Kristen Stewart) in a blonde wig teasingly seducing Jonny Smith (Chris Pang), a wrongful figure, and all that is a part of sting operation held by their agency. Later when she was cornered, former MI-6 agent Jane Kano (Ella Balinska) came to rescue. Together, they put their lives on the line to win.
A year later we see these two are united again in Paris, to rescue Elena Houghlin (Naomi Scott). She is a young systems engineer who is a key rack in a company that created Calisto. This is a new device of a sustainable alternative energy source that has an unfavourable side effect: It could kill people, which Elena knew. So doesn’t want it to go in the wrong hands. She assumed that Calisto could be weaponised as an instrument of mass killings, hence the production shall be stopped. With the Angels, Sabina and Jane together with Rebecca (Elizabeth Banks) as their Bosley on the case, uncover the said clandestine plot.
What we shall know about Charlie’s Angels
It is a reboot of Charlie’s Angels of the ’70s TV series which was about a trio of female secret agents (Kristen Stewart, Ella Balinska, and Naomi Scott). Elizabeth Banks directs the movie and is acting as well. The movie switches the franchise’s focus to female empowerment, with themes of marvel, strength, and partnership. There’s also more violence as many could expect, whilst some are pretty intense: The Angels fight the battle with villains in scenes that are full of hard-hitting fights and assault weapons. They take some knocks in the process, and they also kill some of the villains (impalement is especially gnarly). As in the original show, the Angels are robust, tough, intelligent, and savvy; they also swing a killer wardrobe.
In other words, they’re aspirational, not the sex objects. And these Angels are purely refreshingly distinct. The opening scene creates to pay reverence to the original’s playbook, with Stewart’s character using her sex charm to trap a villain – but it’s revealed that the Angels win because society doesn’t require attractive women to be ingenious or competent. Cursing is rare but present (“d–k,” “s–t,” etc.).
