I caught the very end and very beginning of this movie, and gods. SO. MUCH. DRAMA. I need to watch the whole thing, because it's glorious.
I have not seen the original movies, so it's possible my opinion would've been different if I had grown up with them. But on the whole I had a lot of fun watching this film.
First, the negative: the final act was a little weak - too many special effects, kinda anti-climactic, and honestly I don't feel we NEEDED an attempted apocalypse. It almost felt like there was some other ending planned, but then someone said: we need ACTION!!
Now the positive: strong first and second acts where the characters are bonding and working together to figure out what's going on. I laughed a lot. All the characters were likable and the situational humor was funny. I know this sounds generic, but it's really hard to describe why a joke is funny.
It's a light comedy (that happens to star four women and be a...reboot(?) of a popular franchise, which is really what's creating all the controversy).
Fun, adorable, and actually talked about prejudices people have, openly.
Stupid, but enjoyable. But like, is magic real or not?
