Charlie's Angels ★★★½

It's fun! I shouldn't be surprised a 'Charlie's Angels' movie is fun, but the trailers were bad and this thing starts with clumsy action, an awkward stock-footage title sequence and extremely bland visuals. It picks up from the bowl-cut set piece on, making better use of its locations, with delightful chemistry between the leads and a plot, that if not inspired, at least moves briskly and creates the delectable scenarios for the all spy stuff. Paradoxically, feels like it's going to age worse because is not remotely as campy as McG's version, yet still finishes with a cool likability that'd actually make a potential (but probably unlikely) sequel much welcome, which isn't true for the vast majority of blockbusters this year.
