ReelViews for 'R' movies
McQueen achieves his aim of using a genre framework to advance serious themes, which makes "Widows" an uncommonly good thriller.
A engaging story anchored by two powerful performances, with Glenn Close being is as ferocious as she has ever been.
There’s always a place for good acting, clever dialogue, and a sense of humor, even if the narrative teeters between incidental and irrelevant.
Starts strongly but the qualities that make the first 20 minutes harrowing drain away and the movie morphs into an unsatisfying excursion into fantasy-tinged horror.
