Black Widow is an overdue solo flick!
Scarlett Johansson finally gets the solo Black Widow flick she deserves after meeting her demise in Avengers Endgame. This is an excellent farewell to a character we were first introduced to in Iron Man 2. If you enjoy spy-thrillers, then this is the movie for you. It may be one of the best solo Marvel films to date.
Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, confronts her ledger’s darker parts when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy. She must also deal with the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.
Black Widow will satisfy fans. It is full of emotion, drama, action, and a good chunk of humor. Despite the amazing fights and action sequences, some of the best scenes are with the “family.” David Harbour absolutely nails his role as a decommissioned Red Guardian, who tried his best to be a Father to Natasha and Yelena. Rachel Weisz who is a seasoned Black Widow and a genius who brings balance to the dysfunctional family.
This movie was supposed to put the spotlight on Scarlett Johansson, but Florence Pugh shines brighter, as it sets her up for a future appearance in the MCU as the new Black Widow. The only thing lacking was more face-offs against Task Master, who looks great on the big screen but needed more screen time. Overall this movie delivers explosive action, heartfelt scenes, and relatable family humor.
I give Black Widow an 8.5/10 which sits at 2 hours and 13 minutes. Do not forget to stay after the credits for an extra scene that set up a future showdown! You can watch this movie in theaters starting July 9th or on Disney+ via Premier Access.
