[7.25/10] Black Widow (2021)

Black Widow (2021)

Quick Review: More of a 'family' reunion dramedy meets an assassin spy thriller, than your standard MCU 'origin' story, "BW" manifests a less ferocious and more sentimental side of Natasha, which Johansson owns, but it's truly Pugh's show as Yelena, who delivers all the wit and laughs, and though more talky than action- packed, the movie boasts with some stupendous set pieces, notably the prison break, as well as some hard-hitting fights with Task Master, even if he's vastly underused.

I really enjoyed it but you're right - Pugh stole the show.

She did, indeed. It was her best perfoemance yet!
