The main interesting decision in going from the 1970s television show to a movie (even though the second one) was to make the movie in a modern setting in the current time rather than to do a simple reboot and put the angles in the original time period. This is addressed in multiple scenes where the angels are dealing with and confronting a past angel that has changed sides. Rather than helping deal with things for good, Demi Moore’s character is trying to sell rings with the witness protection name list on them to the highest bidder. However, through these interactions come moments where it is mentioned there is less of a reliance on guns and more martial arts worked in. Also, things like bullet proof vests are mentioned as being different. This decision not to simply redo the original as close as possible gives a sense of continuity. There are always three angels, a Bosley, and a Charlie. This does not change. There are still missions and jobs that are clearly work for the angels. However, it was not approached in the manner Starsky and Hutch was, which made the movie in the same time period as the original.
