The Basics

This is the third installment in the Charlie's Angels saga though they are loosely related. We're following three new characters in the story. It stars Patrick Stewart, Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska. The story follows a woman named Jane who has created a portable device that can create sustainable clean energy. The only problem is that it can also be used as a weapon.

The actresses picked for this movie did not really... fit well, perhaps Jane was a good choice. But the other two I would not have suggested. Especially Kristin Stewart. This really wasn't a good role for her. I am not sure if it was the type of character she specifically was mimicking and perhaps if she had been a different type but still fit within the story it might have been better but I am leaning towards not.

Charlie's Angels 2019

This movie didn't give off good reviews from the trailer alone, however, I promised myself that I would give it an honest good try. That I would watch it unbiased. Sadly, this movie was as disappointing as I was expecting it to be. Honestly, it was painful to sit through. There wasn't one moment in the movie where I was like "Oh, that was nice, or cool." Anything - a single moment, but no, there was nothing. So, let me explain all of the issues I have.

First off, they heavily relied on sex appeal which is a consistent problem in any movie where the protagonist is female except for a very few set of movies. As if it is the only thing that can lead the female protagonist. It merely continues this bad reputation that women can only use sex appeal to their advantage and that that is their ONLY advantage.

Secondly, the movie makes heavy use of typical stereotypes. The strong silent type, the basic lesbian type, and the overtly girly type. Nothing unique or genuine about any of them which makes them difficult to deal with.

Thirdly, the fight scenes were difficult to swallow. It was clear that all of the actors were just not into what they were doing. It came across very half-heartedly and not convincing. It was clear that it was staged which is not something that I or the audience should be getting when they watch an action movie. The punches, the kicks, all of it was very weak 90% of the movie. When the audience watches an action movie they should feel IN the moment. It should draw them in and make them feel like these scenes are actually occurring, that it truly is a life or death moment. The actors should be panting and struggling, showing true effort. There are plenty of movies that show amazing choreography and acting on their part but this was not one of them.

I suppose the only thing the movie had going for it was the plot, but I say this very warily because the execution was handled so poorly that the plot became lost. Pushed back by the characters and who they were being played by.

Another painful unpleasant experience would have to be the fact that Patrick Stewart plays in this movie and his role just did not suit him in the slightest. Not entirely sure why they would pick him for this movie. Most likely to get more audience in a superficial way, but I didn't even know he was in the movie until I began watching it.

All in all this movie just should not have been made.
