With the help of a delicious script expertly executed by a coterie of her talented co-stars, the incomparable Ms. Davis steals the show and delivers yet another Oscar-quality performance. Vintage Viola!

There's nothing here that won't make you glad you came.

The twists and turns in Widows' plot are deeply satisfying, but it's not simply the film's clever construction that makes it so compelling; it's McQueen and Flynn's willingness to give a heist film depth and resonance.

Steve McQueen has made a movie for multiplexes without sacrificing any of his individuality or greatness as a filmmaker. This is one of the best films of the year.

December 7, 2018
The thrilling, emotional Widows is so satisfying because it not only does not skimp on the stuff that makes heist movies tick, it ups the ante.

December 7, 2018
Less acrid and confrontational than his past work, Widows finds McQueen working in the kind of broadly populist filmmaking spectrum as someone like Michael Mann[.]
December 6, 2018
Very much in the style of Lumet and Pollack, with a dash of Michael Mann's Heat, the film swings big and mainly connects; it excels in characterizations, and only stumbles when confronted with straight-up genre elements.

December 6, 2018
On issues of race, politics, gentrification, gender roles, and relationships, it seems to have plenty to say. More often than not, it says it smartly and without bashing you over the head with its ideas.
December 6, 2018
It is an exercise in style and genre that provokes emotion and maintains attention, but still maintains itself in form. [Full Review in Spanish]

This is a smarter breed of a crime movie.

December 5, 2018
A heist thriller built around empowering women and condemning the American political machine shouldn't work, but this movie does.

December 3, 2018
It's complex, and enjoyable, although not exactly moral...there are a sufficient amount of twists that keep you guessing in a fun way.
December 3, 2018
As always, Davis commands and rewards a viewer's attention. Steve McQueen has superbly reinterpreted the cookie-cutter heist genre as an absorbing drama.
December 3, 2018
A mixture of elements and an interesting hybrid of genres, it is also at a middle point that separates it from normality, but it still places it far from reaching the extraordinary. [Full Review in Spanish]

What is really great, aside from original and brilliant, is the way in which the director plays with expectations to then dismantle them all. [Full Review in Spanish]

The film is entertaining and I suspect a new genre is born and the weapons have changed hands. [Full Review in Spanish]
