Black Widow

{4.5/5} “What was I supposed to do? You’re the only superhero person that I know.”

Black Widow, released in 2021

After the Sokovia Accords, Natasha Romanoff finds a secluded place in Norway to hang out. When a mysterious figure arrives to take something she doesn’t know she has, she finds a specific old photo of her and her pretend sister Yelena. That means Yelena is involved in whatever’s going on, so she heads to Budapest. As young girls Natasha and Yelena were taken away from the people they knew as their parents and trained by the Soviet state.

This movie starts with a bang and keeps its grip on you throughout. It has some terrific action sequences.

The acting by the 4 main actors is superlative. It’s exciting and fun.

It’s about family, and working together to defeat evil.

Should we have gotten a solo Black Widow movie before now? Of course. But I’m glad we got this one.

Stars Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, and Rachel Weisz. Directed by Cate Shortland (Lore). The action-movie music is by Lorne Balfe.

It probably won’t surprise you at this point, but there’s a post-credits sequence.

The previous movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Spider-Man: Far from Home.
