Review: Black Widow

Last modified date

“Black Widow” is one of the few Marvel franchise films that focuses solely on women; specifically, on Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). Although the name of the film sounds enticing, and Scarlett Johansson is often entertaining, the plot itself is lackluster.

As seen in previous Marvel films, there are more diverse displays of character development and climaxes, especially when it comes to femininity. In “Black Widow” however, the film falls short, only scratching the surface of being entertaining, as it portrays the differences from Black Widow’s young life into adulthood. Needless to say, if you can avoid this film, you should do so.
