Widows Reviews

Page 1 of 7
November 13, 2018
The undercurrent of McQueen's focus is not who gets what bag of money but the grander thievery of gangsters aspiring to be politicians who themselves act like gangsters...
November 13, 2018
A nifty, nimble marriage of prestige and pulp, this one packs a whole lot into a highly entertaining package.
November 13, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
November 13, 2018
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.

November 13, 2018
Leave it up to Steve McQueen to revitalize the heist movie in such a way that it moves beyond the shoot-'em-up, grand theft business to tell a story about Chicago's dirty politics, social and economic corruption, and moral ambiguity.
November 13, 2018
As always, Steve McQueen is an original and bold storyteller, delivering the goods with dazzling creativity.

November 13, 2018
The ensemble is a blast. Everyone gets their moment and you come away feeling like you really got to know most of them, but it is Davis and her unforgettably searing intensity (and killer wardrobe) who owns "Widows" from start to finish.
November 13, 2018
From the get-go, it's intense. It just draws you in.
November 13, 2018
The director of "12 Years a Slave" has lost little of his talent for moral shock, and the new film retains a clear-eyed vision of what has changed, and just how much has not, in the contesting of American power.
November 13, 2018
Widows is one of those films that gets better and better the more you think about it.
November 13, 2018
McQueen directs with a brutal ferocity, scenes often ending in ruthless bloodshed that's as well staged as it is chilling.

November 13, 2018
It's rare to see a director of McQueen's pedigree working on a heist film, and even rarer for a popcorn flick to work on the intricate and stratifying levels that Widowsgrants us.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
November 13, 2018
It shouldn't seem this easy. To make a popcorn heist movie that also has something to say about society...that's a thin line to walk.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
November 12, 2018
This thoughtful, textured story - though brutal at times - stands as one of the clearest depictions of turmoil, racism and nepotism in local politics that's ever been drawn onscreen.
November 12, 2018
"Widows" is an unimportant movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 12, 2018
It's a superbly crafted thriller that also happens to be as entertaining as any popcorn movie you'll see all year.
November 12, 2018
Really a film about power ... and the compromises that accompany those transactions, be they political, professional or personal.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 12, 2018
McQueen's masterful film is the kind that works on multiple levels simultaneously-as pure pulp entertainment but also as a commentary on how often it feels like we have to take what we are owed or risk never getting it at all.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
November 12, 2018
After watching what filmmaker Steve McQueen does with the heist drama in "Widows," give him free rein to take on whatever other tried-and-true (and somewhat rote) Hollywood genre he wants to transform into a piece of high art.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
November 11, 2018
With genuinely funny moments but twists in the plot and a tone closer to Hollywood standards, makes Widows a minor effort in McQueen's filmography, showing his more generic and even complacent side. [Full Review in Spanish]
