Movie Review – Widows

 

Movie Review - WidowsWidows is a tightly wound drama that keeps you on the edge of your seat with perfect pacing, incredible acting and spot-on directing. I want to give kudos to Joe Walker for the amazing way this movie was edited. In the opening scene, he takes us from a sexy bedroom scene to a chaotic police shoot out, and back to the bedroom, then one more shot of the chaos. And all of this flowed almost naturally. I never felt confused — and if you ask my children, confusion is a-natural state for me.

The acting was awesome. It would be hard to pick one stand-out performance, since everyone did exactly what they’re supposed to do — wow us with a perfect interpretation of their character.

With Gillian Flynn’s outstanding screenplay, I was never bored. Just when you think you have it all figured out, Flynn would throw a curve ball that seemed to take the movie in a whole different direction. That’s superior writing! The production value of Widows is so polished you can almost see your reflection in it. Don’t miss the opportunity to see a truly flawless movie. Hollywood isn’t making a lot of those anymore.

Grade: A

About The Peetimes: The pacing of the movie made it easy to find 2 good Peetimes in the early and middle part of the story. However, due to the length of the movie I added a 3rd just for emergencies.

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Widows. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
