McQueen achieves his aim of using a genre framework to advance serious themes, which makes "Widows" an uncommonly good thriller.
With so much material crammed into a 110-minute motion picture, it feels rushed and unfinished.
Functions as a time machine to take the viewer back to the days of “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” while re-introducing the man who functioned as a friend/mentor/father-figure.
Saddled with an unevenly paced screenplay and overly reliant on generic CGI, "A Wrinkle in Time" fails to convey the magic of the book.
