Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy, and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.
Disney once again delivered another entertaining/family film in Black Widow, the latest installment to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At this point it’s clear Disney has a formula for creating blockbuster films. Scarlett Johansson has been long overdue to be the leading character in her debut marvel film. The movie is exciting right from the get go and has a more serious tone than usual marvel movies. However, that doesn’t last long before it becomes the typical light hearted origin film marvel is used to producing. Supported by a strong cast the, movie succeeds in keeping you interested through solid dialogue. Although the movie was fun and entertaining, after a while it started to feel all the same as many other of marvels origin films. I guess at this point after so many of these movies I am looking for something fresh, which this movie did not necessarily give me.
In the end, I don’t have much to say about this movie. It felt somewhat generic but kept me entertained for a couple hours. Could I have gone without watching this movie? ……I could, but at this point Marvel has made so many of these movies I don’t want to miss one incase it’s needed to understand upcoming films. They are doing a good job so far of making these movies for anyone not just Marvel fans, however I’m not sure how long that can last. Overall, average movie but not great. I may be getting spoiled but this just felt like another marvel movie to make some easy money.
