It doesn't help that I don't rate the original, or Gary Ross' directing style. So it's clear that this is more of a statement film. 8 A-list actresses countering the patriarchy much like 'Ghostbusters' remake did to alt-right furore 2 years ago. Both films are sub-par in themselves, but the statement that the film represents is superb. Hopefully, it won't be perceived that a poor review has misogynistic intent.
