No one cares about Charlie's Angels, that's why. The original show is hardly seen by anyone under 40, and the McG movies have all but been forgotten.
No one was asking for a Charlie's Angels reboot. And if they did, they'd be asking for something that actually resembles the original concept. This is nothing at all like the original show. In that, they were just private detectives solving local crimes. They weren't actively fighting terrorists or sporting high-tech gadgets, nor did they have a female boss. Best of all, they didn't have to call attention to their gender to get the job done.
This film isn't gonna please anyone who isn't some man-hating feminist. It's certainly not going to appease fans of the original show, as it bares little-to-no resemblance to that and it won't please general action movie fans either, considering how sick they probably are of super woke, politically correct movies. They should have just made a Totally Spies! movie instead.
Mrrockey spells it out perfectly. I'm all for women's rights etc but I watched the old show for the pretty dames. 2 out of 5 episodes were sorta OK if you can ignore the poor quality of the era.
I did not like the McG movies because they stopped taking themselves seriously and got zany. The movies revealed the makers lack of respect for the series.
If any version of Charlie's Angels is about anything other than 3 ladies who are exceptional detectives solving serious cases that happen to be super sexy then it isn't CA and should be named something else. The show had two gimmicks: 1. They were all gorgeous. 2. They had a mystery benefactor who seemed to operate outside the law and with great wealth. Everyone who touches this seems to think that you just need 3 girls and then you can do whatever you like.
