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.

If they're into superhero movies - particularly Marvel ones and the Black Widow character who's appeared in them - they probably will.
For intense sequences of violence/action, some language and thematic material.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
