So of course I ended up watching "Black Widow" as well, as I was presented with the opportunity to watch it. I went in expecting little in terms of proper entertaining, believing it to be yet another visually astounding experiences that covers up for a shallow storyline.
And I was actually genuinely entertained and surprised with the outcome of "Black Widow". This movie was a movie that felt like a good old fashioned fast paced action movie. Especially since there weren't superhero powers involved here, so this 2021 movie was up alongside the likes of "Batman" in terms of me having an interest in it.
The storyline told in "Black Widow", as written by Eric Pearson, Jac Schaeffer and Ned Benson was actually interesting and turned out to be more than just your average superhero smackdown. I liked the story told here, and it definitely added depth to the Natasha Romanoff character (played by Scarlett Johansson).
Visually then you will be in for another top notch special effects galore, as with all other Marvel superhero movies. The special effects teams that worked on "Black Widow" definitely delivered, and then some. This movie was through the roof.
The action scenes in "Black Widow" were fast paced and adrenaline filled, which was something that really appealed to me.
"Black Widow" does have a good ensemble of actors and actresses on the cast list, with the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Rachel Weisz and a short appearance by William Hurt.
I have no doubts that the 2021 movie "Black Widow" from director Cate Shortland is not going to please the fans of the MCU, as someone like me (not at all a fan of the superhero genre) could be more than genuinely entertained.
My rating of "Black Widow" lands on a seven out of ten stars.
