Charlie’s Angels (2019)

I watched my second Columbia Pictures movie in two nights, although they were made 77 years apart. The 2019 Charlies Angels was written and directed by Elizabeth Banks (Hunger Games, Pitch Perfect, Surrender Doroty, Spider-Man, Seabiscuit, 40 Year old Virgin, Slither, Man on a Ledge, The Lego Movie, Power Rangers, 30 Rock, Scrubs and Modern Family) and produced by Doug Belgrad (Men in Black, Bad Boys, The Social Network and Zero Dark Thirty).

The Angels organization has progressed through the years now having Bosley’s running different groups of operatives all over the world. The senior Bosley, Patrick Stewart (Picard on Star Trek, Professor Charles Xavier in X-Men, American Dad),

a Calisto project engineer/programmer, Elena – Naomi Scott (Princess Jasmine in Aladdin, Terra Nova, Power Rangers) needs Angel protection and ends up working with Sabina – Kristen Stewart (Bella in Twilight, Panic Room, Zathura: A Space Adventure, Snow White and the Huntsman) and Jane – Ella Balinska.

Their Bosley is the films director Elizabeth Banks. The voice of Charlie is Robert Clotworthy (Narrator of Ancient Aliens and The Curse of Oak Island) and there are Cameos by  Lili Reinhart (Betty in Riverdale), Danica Patrick (retired race car driver),  

Michael Strahan (retired NFL player) and Jaclyn Smith (Angel Kelly Garrett in the original TV series). Still photographs of Kate JacksonFarrah FawcettCheryl LaddCameron DiazDrew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu 

as their respective Angel characters from the television series and previous movies are shown during a presentation at the Townsend Agency. Filming took place at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Germany, the Spice Bazaar, Veliefendi Race Course, and Sultanahmet, all in Istanbul, Turkey.

I like this movie and will give it 3 out of 5 stars. For more information read Wikipedia, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.
