- Has one of the best action scenes so far. Civil War's airport battle level good.
- It's set after Civil War, so lots of Avengers references.
- Scarlett and Florence play each other well as Thelma & Louis.
- Knowing what happens in Endgame doesn't diminish the stakes.
- Easily, one of Scarlett Johansson's best performances (The trans asian tree range!)
- David Harbour is a scene stealer.
Honestly blown away by #BlackWidow. It’s low-key one of Marvel’s finest - an emotional story with great performance and a high-stakes chase through a “Russian JCPenney” that might be one of the zaniest and most badass action scenes in MCU history. Fans are gonna love it— ben mekler (@benmekler) June 17, 2021
Marvel movies are back! #BlackWidow is a tense, action-packed spy thriller that truly completes Natasha’s story in a visceral & emotional way. Florence Pugh CRUSHES it & is an instant MCU icon. This is like the MCU's Bond movie w/ shades of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE & THELMA & LOUISE. pic.twitter.com/bauc2XVQlF— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) June 17, 2021
#BlackWidow was better than I thought it would be!— Jacob (@JacobDFilm) June 17, 2021
Although there’s some excellent action, what pulled me in was the really powerful themes & character moments the film presented.
Easily Scarlett’s best performance as Nat, and Florence Pugh is brilliant as Yelena. pic.twitter.com/CDjKJm4nVq
I got to see #BlackWidow last night, and as someone who has been waiting since 2010 to see Natasha Romanoff get her own movie, it was well worth the wait.— Hector Navarro (@Hectorisfunny) June 17, 2021
The actions rips, the emotion hits and the new characters joining the MCU are standouts. MORE BLACK WIDOW MOVIES PLEASE! pic.twitter.com/R0JUHThSiF
#BlackWidow is excellent. An exhilarating shot of adrenaline. Scarlett Johansson & Florence Pugh nail the banter & ballet-like stunts. David Harbour is absolutely terrific. Big action set pieces are thrilling, propulsive & capably constructed. Multi-layered thematic resonance. pic.twitter.com/ew9r1NXvfL— Courtney Howard (@Lulamaybelle) June 17, 2021
Marvel movies are back and Phase 4 kicks off with the very entertaining and action-packed #BlackWidow. Giving us a long-overdue look at Natasha's backstory, with solid performances throughout and thrilling set pieces that demand you see this movie on the biggest screen possible. pic.twitter.com/Pr6qeBlSGQ— Umberto Gonzalez (@elmayimbe) June 17, 2021
Yelena will be a new fan-favorite after #BlackWidow too. Florence Pugh knocked it out of the park. She and Scarlett Johansson are phenomenal together as two "sisters" used and abused by a system they need to break.— Alisha Grauso (@AlishaGrauso) June 17, 2021
#BlackWidow might be one of my favorite solo origin movies in the MCU. There's something about seeing Natasha finally get her story that made me emotional in all the best ways. Also, Florence Pugh was born for the MCU, and her dynamic with Scarlett is a triumph— Nora Dominick (@noradominick) June 17, 2021
Dug #BlackWidow a good deal! Was kinda worried about watching this story unfold knowing what’s to come in Endgame, that it might diminish the stakes, but that wasn’t the case. In fact, this is the kind of prequel story that feels bound to enhance other installments of the MCU. pic.twitter.com/sFcwHzW30Y— Perri Nemiroff (@PNemiroff) June 17, 2021
There's a certain grittiness this film captures that reminded me of the moment I saw WINTER SOLDIER the first time - my favorite MCU film. The Russo's brought a grounded realism to the action and that's what Cate Shortland has done here. You are reminded Widow is a human being.— Kevin McCarthy (@KevinMcCarthyTV) June 17, 2021
It’s fun, it’s sad, it’s goofy and it’s packed with action. For Marvel folks, this is above average. It doesn’t reach Infinity War/Endgame levels. #BlackWidow— Herb Scribner (@HerbScribner) June 17, 2021
ONTD, will you be watching 'Black Widow' on Disney+ or on theatres?
