Awful. Forgettable. Pandering faux-feminist dull, boring. Not even Kirsten Stewart can save this (though she does try). I honestly forgot I watched it mere hours later. The annoying soundtrack features an instrumental version of Run The Jewels' 'Nobody Speak' thus reminding me how much better Booksmart was. Frustrating as all hell.
You know a reboot is bad when you're waxing nostalgic about the previous bad reboot. Where the "originals" planted the seeds for some of the worst conventions of action moviemaking, this one doubles down. It's a myopically modern movie with flimsy feminist overtones that are easy for its target demographic to eat up and outsiders to mock. When Kristen Stewart is the most lively soul on screen, that too says something
People love to trash talk and I like to see it. While being a stiff, unelegant and unimpressive reboot, it has a strong sense of sisterhood and empowerment - and that throws people off. This one hasn't the star power but it tries to establish new girls. I like to be fed the feminist agenda; it's necessary! It has some nice action scenes and it broads the agency to Victoria's Secret-like management with guns.
