Sabina Wilson (Kristen Stewart), Elena Houghlin (Naomi Scott), and Jane Kano (Ella Balinska) are working for the mysterious Charles Townsend (Robert Clotworthy), whose security and investigative agency has expanded internationally. With the world's smartest, bravest, and most highly trained women all over the globe, there are now teams of Angels guided by multiple Bosleys taking on the toughest jobs everywhere.
In this film, the Kristen Stewart character says that if "it wasn't for Charlie, I'd probably be dead or back in prison." In the 2010 film "The Runaways," the character played by Stewart (Joan Jett), says that if it "wasn't for rock and roll, I'd be in jail or dead." See more »
After Edgar's car sinks, Jane dives and struggles with the door in order to save Elena. However, since the rear window was totally broken during the car chase, Elena could simply swim through it. See more »

I think women can do anything.

Well, I mean, just because they can, doesn't mean they should, right?

Girl power gone wrong in a desiccated and flaccid mess of a movie...
Even though I didn't have Thanksgiving dinner this year, turns out I still ended up with a turkey: this movie was bad. I have a high tolerance, and can tolerate a film with a less than snappy script. I really wanted to like it, and wanted Elizabeth Banks not to be terrible as a director, but it was a paint-by-numbers action movie, with everything painted outside the lines and all over the page. Ella Balinska was a nice revelation; it's always good to see Chris Pang; and I still love Kristen Stewart, but the best part of this jumble of boring nonsense was the glimpse of the original Angels and the Cameron Diaz/Drew Barrymore/Lucy Liu gang at the beginning, and then finding out who the new Charlie was at the very end (a nice blast from the past). Otherwise, it was a mishmash of girl power gone wrong, with all the fun of the previous Angels movies wrung completely out of it, so all that remained was a desiccated and flaccid mess of a movie.
