Critic Reviews for Widows
From its first moments, "Widows" signals that audiences aren't in for just another heist movie.
For all its cynicism, the movie floats on a darkly exhilarating brand of escapism. It's one of the year's highlights in any genre.
If all heist movies were like this, I'd never leave the multiplexes.
Powered by an understated performance by Viola Davis, "Widows" shows what can be done within the boundaries of the expected while delivering something unexpected.
With a killer cast led by Viola Davis, Cynthia Erivo, Michelle Rodriquez and Elizabeth Debicki, director Steve McQueen turns four women and a heist into the powerhouse thriller of the year. You're in for a hell of a ride.
McQueen seems to be saying look again, look harder, because underneath the roiling tension of big money heists and the crunching of political gears is an examination about the ugly machinations of power, money and patriarchy.
