Widows - Widows review by TS

Great Film to watch on a rental without having to buy the Film in shops, good to see the girls taking the main roles in Films for a change, Not to Violent and I like that.

Awful, overlong, over-rated, unbelievable, race/gender-obsessed film - TV Widows from 80s was better - Widows review by PV

Some points about this movie which has got great reviews from the usual pc virtue-signally critics who feel they have to give a film by a black director with black actors and women starring a brilliant rating and reviews.

Unfortunately, this is a rubbish film. The massively over-rated director is only matched by the over-rated Viola David who is UTTERLY unbelievable in the role she plays. Liam Neeson's wife? Yeah right. This mixed marriage race thing may be a novelty in the mainly segregated USA but it's old hat in the UK.

Making women the bank robbers is also old hat - it was done in the far better original 1983 TV series which I watched at the time, back when it WAS a novelty (even though NO real life bank robbers are female - the wives and girlfriends just get the cash as hubbies go to prison lol!)

This is basically polemic about gender and race, box-ticking like crazy, with a few unbelievable twists and some US corrupt Chicago politics chucked in to try to give depth.

Just awful. Also boring and overlong.

If you want to watch a GREAT heist movie then rent out SEXY BEAST; if you want a better so-so heist film then get THE HATTON GARDEN JOB. This movie of WIDOWS is rash masquerading as social statement about race and gender. If this is the future of film-making, I shall not be visiting the cinema much again (and ticket sales 26% down since Hollywood became obsessed with churning our race/gender-obsessed movies galore).

1 star. Dreadful trash.

Excuse for pointless violence - Widows review by PW

Against my better judgement w watched this film due to the "stellar ensemble" and good reviews. Bid mistake. The film is yet another trashy dumbed down American film which manages to find almost any excuse for pointless violence. I would think that to enjoy this sort of stuff you must either be totally immune to sceens of violence, or get off on it. The film also managed to be extremely boring. We had had enough after about an hour.
