Critic Reviews for Widows
It's a superbly crafted thriller that also happens to be as entertaining as any popcorn movie you'll see all year.
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.
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.
This film goes beyond a simple heist. This is a testament to women breaking ground in new genres, especially women of color. Go see this film as soon as you can, preferably with a large audience.
To watch them coalesce into a hard-nosed crew of heisters is the year's most purely pleasurable piece of transformation.
