ReelViews for movies starring 'Brian Tyree Henry'
Writer/director Jacob Estes has come to the project with a clever concept but his execution is weak, contradictory, and confusing.
With its flashy action sequences and Tarantino-wannabe vibe, the movie tries hard to be hip and edgy but ends up simply being uneven.
With so much material crammed into a 110-minute motion picture, it feels rushed and unfinished.
McQueen achieves his aim of using a genre framework to advance serious themes, which makes "Widows" an uncommonly good thriller.
