This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (2):

Viewers ready to latch onto the concept of three stylish, powerful women whose impressive moves command respect (until they open their mouths...) might be entertained. But if not, the Angels are in danger of joining the ranks of other failed rebooted classic TV icons like Knight Rider and Bionic Woman.

Iconic as it is, the original Charlie's Angels wasn't known for its powerhouse acting. (In fact, it was arguably more famous for Farrah Fawcett's feathered hair.) So perhaps we shouldn't expect this amped-up remake to deliver performances that feel rooted in reality. The hammy dialogue doesn't help. But combined with the overall high production value, you get the sense that "hammy" wasn't really what the show's creators were going for.
