New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: Charlie’s Angels Movie Review: Feminist action heroines fly, but don’t soar

By Andrea Thompson

Charlie’s Angels doesn’t just have a feminist legacy, but a very specific type, or shall we say, brand. One that unapologetically places just as much emphasis on its female characters’ beauty and fashion choices as it does their kickass action skills. This can go very right, as was the case of the 70s TV show from whence this franchise sprung, and the 2000 movie that gave it new life. Or it can go terribly wrong, as was the case with the 2003 sequel.
