This 118-minute, hurricane-paced spy thriller is the latest big-screen spin on the 1970s TV series and a pair of films that released in the early 2000s. It is a spirited eye-candy with a strong feminist streak but light on content.
The film is about three women spies the Angels who work for private security and investigative agency, called Townsend Agency. The Agency is owned by an anonymous millionaire called Charlie who runs his missions through Bosley, his proxy or second in command.
While the film’s basic premise will be familiar to anyone who ever watched the original TV show or the earlier films, it bears no resemblance to the prior versions of “Charlie’s Angels”.
