Black Widow (2021) - Rotten Tomatoes

Black Widow (2021)



Critic Consensus: Black Widow's deeper themes are drowned out in all the action, but it remains a solidly entertaining standalone adventure that's rounded out by a stellar supporting cast.

Critic Reviews for Black Widow

What ensues is a film that isn't interested in planting seeds for future Marvel movies -- which is actually a refreshing change of pace.

Almost completely lacking in Black Widow is any sense of outrage over the grotesque violations of human rights and human dignity at the root of the whole premise of the film.

August 28, 2021 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…

Black Widow represents the MCU looking back when it should be moving forward. Everything about the movie seems small, even the big action set-pieces

August 6, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

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."

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.

July 26, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

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.
