Critic Reviews for Widows
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.
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.
As always, Steve McQueen is an original and bold storyteller, delivering the goods with dazzling creativity.
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.
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.
