Critics Consensus: Earnest and energetic, if a bit uneven, Elizabeth Banks's pulpy Charlie's Angels adds new flair to the franchise with fun performances from its three leads.

Super fun reboot mixes female empowerment, lots of violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Charlie's Angels is a reboot of the '70s TV series about a trio of female secret agents (Kristen Stewart, Ella Balinska, and Naomi Scott). Elizabeth Banks directs, switching the franchise's focus to female empowerment, with themes of curiosity, courage, and teamwork. There's also more violence than many might expect, some of it pretty intense: The Angels battle villains in scenes that are full of hard-hitting fights, explosions, and assault weapons. They take some punches in the process, and they also kill some of the villains (an impalement is particularly gnarly). As in the original show, the Angels are tough, strong, smart, and savvy; they also rock a killer wardrobe. In other words, they're aspirational, not sex objects. And they're refreshingly diverse. The opening scene does pay homage to the original's playbook, with Stewart's character using her sex appeal to trap a villain -- but it's explained that the Angels succeed because society doesn't expect attractive women to be cunning or capable. Profanity is infrequent but present ("d--k," "s--t," etc.), and there's some social drinking.
