The only thing wrong with Director Cate Shortland’s Black Widow is that it is being shown on TV, while it is playing in theaters. Otherwise, it is one of the best action pictures in years!
Writer Eric Pearson, working with the story by Jac Schaeffer and Ned Benson, has crafted an interesting and offbeat story about family and mixed it with more than enough action to make it soar above all the preceding films in this genre.
The women…Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh and Rachel Weisz…are exceptional on all levels. And, since the film is about women overcoming the dominance of an evil man, the film scores on that level, as well.
Black Widow is a must-see and deserves a 4.8 out of 5.
