Overall there are lots to love here, the screenplay by Eric Pearson manages to balance the action, humor and emotional moments pretty well. Read more

It has its problems but you cannot say that it is not, even during some of these flaws, an entertaining and confidently crafted blockbuster, which welcomes fans back to big screen Marvel, and comes with their usual comedic treats and superhero clashing trimmings. Read more

It works perfectly from start to end and never forgets to take it easy, make us laugh, and sometimes be sad at the same time. Read more

A strong and engaging character driven solo outing for Natasha Romanoff that deepens her considerably, delivers entertaining action beats and introduces other memorable characters. Read more

It covers her early life, pre-titles, but then skips all the intermediate biopic stuff to drill into this specific adventure in her life. And the quality of the acting and the relationships that are built up delivered something that I greatly enjoyed. Read more

Cate Shortland’s Black Widow does a lot of things right, but it falls just short of being great, and it isn’t a top-tier Marvel movie, in part due to the the fact that its antagonists are underused and that its ending is decidedly awkward. Read more

Marvel does a fantastic job making Black Widow feel special, despite lacking any real urgency and landing about 10 years too late. They accomplish this by giving us fun interactions between solid characters played by great actors, including Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour and Rachel Weisz. Read more

It’s just a solid, well-staged, well-acted thrill ride that happens to finally give one of the original “Big 6” Avengers her due. Read more

Black Widow is a welcome change of pace for Marvel. While the massive movies Infinity War and Endgame have their merit—I find them impressive in scope alone—they contain little time to breathe. Read more

Once again, Black Widow is a fine film. It’s unlikely to be anyone’s favorite or most hated in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s a film that’s just kind of there and, for the most part, it’s an enjoyable little spy film with some fun family elements thrown in. Read more

Luckily, Black Widow succeeds enough on its own merits and, with the MCU shortly to make a return to its more cosmic scale, it’s good to spend a bit of time away from the gods and aliens.

Comparisons with Mission Impossible and the Bourne films are legit since the spies have their own ways. Black Widow doesn’t assume a place of distinction, but even not very super, assures an acceptable ride into the Marvel world. Read more

Sure, as the usual counterargument always goes about the “journey” mattering more, this Marvel prequel feels like a tardy reward for what could have really been something special when the time was right and the fire was hot years ago. Read more

As it shifts away from a take on La Femme Nikita to the dystopian sci-fi routines of Equilibrium, ultimately betraying a distillation as a simple revenge flick, Black Widow proceeds to remind viewers that all of this could have been so much more powerful and riveting without the over-the-top tech or superheroes of any kind.

Black Widow is een laat, maar degelijk achtergrondverhaal die gered wordt door vermakelijke actie en kleurrijke bijrol personages. Read more

Laat mijn algemene terughoudendheid over Black Widow daarom niet de pret drukken, want voor de meeste mensen is dit waarschijnlijk prima kijkvoer en er wordt precies afgeleverd wat je van Marvel verwacht. Aan jou om te bepalen of je nog steeds tevreden bent met Marvel's huidige filmaanpak, of dat je net als ik toe bent aan vernieuwing. Read more

Verder is Black Widow zoals verwacht veel te lang met zijn speelduur van bijna 2 uur & een kwartier en de film is gewoon te langdradig vanaf het begin zonder iets bij te dragen aan het personage dat nu in de eeuwigheid is verzilverd. Read more
