(2021) (Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Superhero Action: A superhero must contend with her past, including her estranged sister, while dealing with a villain who's determined to conquer the world.
In the mid-1990s in Ohio, Natasha Romanoff (SCARLETT JOHANSSON) and Yelena Belova (FLORENCE PUGH) grew up as sisters raised by Melina (RACHEL WEISZ) and Alexei (DAVID HARBOUR), only to learn that was all a ruse in what turned out to be a Russian sleeper cell with the girls then whisked away at a young age to be trained as deadly assassins.
Since then, Yelena has mostly flown under the radar while mind-controlled like other young women by General Dreykov (RAY WINSTONE). Natasha, on the other hand, broke free from her handlers and eventually joined the superhero team The Avengers. But with a recent civil war among those members, Natasha, a.k.a. Black Widow, has gone on the run. After a run-in with Dreykov's number-one assassin, Taskmaster (OLGA KURYLENKO), Natasha ends up reunited with Yelena, with no love lost between them.
But they decide to put their differences behind them to take down Dreykov who's about to unleash a worldwide army of mind-controlled female assassins, but needs the second piece of a high-tech device to make that a reality.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they're into superhero movies - particularly Marvel ones and the Black Widow character who's appeared in them - they probably will.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For intense sequences of violence/action, some language and thematic material.
