At least it seems the baton is being passed to Pugh, who not only effortlessly holds her own opposite Johansson, but breathes life and emotion to her every role.

More women is its only decent idea. Otherwise, it's business as usual. Otherwise, it's all formulaic bish-bosh, smash-crash action scenes broken up by lame jokes and lame philosophising along the lines of: "Your pain only makes you stronger."

Cate Shortland's biggest feat here is taking a larger-than-life world and grounding it in high-stakes thriller fashion. It also gives Johansson the deserving spotlight.
July 29, 2021
Not only is it a thrilling couple of hours at the cinema, it well and truly anoints Pugh as Marvel's next bona fide megastar.
July 29, 2021
The best part of the film is, without a doubt, the chemistry between Johansson and Pugh, who fight and make up with the intensity of real siblings.

I wasn't initially excited to see this but I really enjoyed watching this movie. I was surprised by the humor and serious undertones, which flowed well with the action scenes.

This was a very effective action thriller that provided some closure to this character in an endearing way. Also Florence Pugh killed this!

What makes this movie stand out from the majority of action movies is that it is more character-driven than most. It is about family relationships as much as it is about the mission.

Black Widow unintentionally feels of a simpler time for this expansive universe. It should have been made five years ago.

Shortland does a solid job with the material, but even she isn't able to entirely gloss over how Natasha randomly keeps disappearing in her own movie or how what is supposed to be her story frequently focuses on other characters.

Brings a much-needed complexity to Natasha Romanoff giving her a well-deserved farewell. Pugh stands out as Yelena & provides a promising future for this franchise.

In a film that is mostly colourless, David Harbour stands out with an undeniable shade of red.

Director Cate Shortland has said the goal for Black Widow was to make it gritty, grounded, and real. She should have aimed for engaging, entertaining, and comprehensible.

A nice sendoff.
July 24, 2021
Overall, I enjoyed this movie. It is a good mid-level Marvel movie.
July 23, 2021
I appreciate the way that Cate Shortland adapts herself well to an action film... This is one of the individual [Marvel Cinematic Universe] films that I would keep.
July 23, 2021
It suggests to me that there was never a real grasp on what this film was supposed to be.
July 23, 2021
As a standalone action caper full of big booms and beautiful brawls, Black Widow has bite.
July 23, 2021
In some ways, this feels like a good version of the 2018 Jennifer Lawrence vehicle Red Sparrow, as it's far more intriguing and far less rapey.
July 22, 2021
Although Black Widow's story is not as gripping as it could have been, it deserves a place in the pantheon of female superhero movies, much like it's DC counterpart, Wonder Woman.
