At long last, after two years, we’ve finally got a major Marvel superhero movie in theaters! As an unapologetic Marvel fanboy, I was thrilled to see Black Widow on the big screen and enjoy another wonderful action film. And I’m very pleased to see the big box office numbers, meaning other people were just as happy to get out and watch Black Widow.
Movie Rating: 8/10 – Very Good.
I very much enjoyed Black Widow. I don’t really have any gripes or complaints or nitpicks. I know the online conversation around this movie has involved a lot of picks and nits here and there, but I am not one of those people. I enjoyed everything about this film. I don’t consider it one of Marvel’s all-time best or in the upper echelon of Marvel films. I just consider it another solid, enjoyable, well-made Marvel movie. And, honestly, I can feel a bit of that Marvel magic with this one. It’s hard to explain.
But I’m going to do my best! Join me after the jump for my thoughts and review of Black Widow. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the movie.Read the rest of this entry
