Honestly — the series that became the film is not watched. But somehow, it seems that it you can find much more complete and comprehensive information about all those events were frame.

"Widow" — this is the story of several women whose men-robbers were killed in one investigation. Now they (the widows) have to survive in conditions where lenders are demanding repayment of debts, and others do not hurry to help, mindful of who were they wife.

If found out that was 80 years of this series would be that the basic concept — story of the vengeful women, the creators of "Widows" have stolen cruel and a tragic gangster drama "the Godmother" with Nastassja Kinski. But one way or another, the similarities with a plot yet available.

Given that  the Widows are more than two hours, this time is not enough to completely compose a picture, where each of the released characters would have their place. If you look carefully, you you can, of course, to understand how connected the main widow and elected Alderman of the district, where there is rich David, using the services of the escort and etc. But the story looks ragged because the plot is interspersed with too many events: competition between the two aldermen, dirty deeds and also the other, the enticement of voters (this is a story full meter), the relationship of politicians and criminals, the Association of widows in one team, their worrying about personal loss and sorry about past that brought a lot of pain...

Steve McQueen tries to tell about everything but of this turns out the whole picture. The episodes jump from one another, the narrative abruptly changes the subject and followed by one theme here same slono a Jack-of-the-box POPs up another. And then a third. Maybe if McQueen shared the movie on a conditional two-three Chapter, showing the events on alone, and then brought them in General, the final, would be much more interesting and exciting.

In an effort to show the widows as women, it is not understand how to lead the criminal case, on my view, the Director went too far. Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez and Elizabeth Debicki appeared in images and very unprepared women. And the stranger it looks like was business. And if the characters Debicki and Rodriguez still be more or less competent, the heroine of Davis — it's just hard. In addition to attempts to squirm intelligent face and lifting all my white mutt, she seems to or not able. But correctly generates a voice command, Pugacheva on their podlinez.

Even the presence of the movie's great cast (in addition to the above women — John Bernthal, Liam Neeson, Robert Duvall, Garrett Dillahunt, Colin Farrell), not saves it from despair and boredom. A lot of events, they develop slowly and without any impulsive shocks, and make you want to hurry to see the final credits. It is possible to note the quality of the operator's work of Sean Bobbit — interesting choice of angle and shooting some scenes are fun. He film General — pretty average and malesupersite.

However, to watch You. Your opinion is not impose.

Nice view.

If Steve McQueen decided to spend the entire budget on a couple of explosions and acting team, this is nothing to worry about. But only one case: the movie should be "wow". But all we got — it is a depressing drag on 2 hours.

As many as 120 I tried to feel the history and to understand the motive of each character, but that's script was bursting at the seams that to do I just started to yawn. Spoiler: Zev lasted until the end.

"Come on, please hurry to where they will go on the case, there will be something unpleasant, then twist, then happy." Hour — in so you could put the story with a fairly typical scenario. It at least not was a disappointment, and got into the list "film on night".

When the first scene began to flicker so familiar and gorgeous actors, I prepared for real driving mixes in the genre of "recent robbery." The plot is quickly wrapped and hung. It trying desperately to warm up eternal problems of the United States: racism, politicking, the cops, the independence of women. But if hung, it completely. The heroes nervously fluttered at the different locations, complaining about the same same different dialogues.

At some point I realized we want to show real people, real women, far from Affairs of their husbands, that their way of life, here their lives. They say, the truth and live — well that fit. Yes that only for real, there is something deep and wise. Values, principles, philosophy. Discover all this.

Crumpled, cut, belched.

This is a complete failure. Fiasco, McQueen.

When I first saw the trailer of the movie "Widow" I, probably like and many immediately thought that it's a Thriller about strong and independent women and feminists, which hurt bad men. BUT, I was very pleased with my agreeable disappointment. For modern, tolerant and the feminist society, film, from Director Steve McQueen (12 years of slavery), came out fresh and independent the opinions of others.

The story is sharp and mixed in there unambiguous characters, all of bad good. Heroines save the world and fighting the infringement of their rights. They have been driven into the corner by the circumstances of life, trying to survive and protect your loved ones using extreme methods. In picture on my deepest surprise, one of the villains — black guy! Yes, Yes! In the last time, while many movies if at least one black oppresses, and are not oppressed, then all down the drain. It's nice that in addition to the plot are present and social problems in many cities of the world, and the inequality before the law, the problem of crime areas, corrupt politicians, thieves in the law of corrupt Ministers, lawlessness and bias of the police, in against certain types of citizens.

My favorite viola Davis (How to get away with the murder, the maid) went all out on all of 200% (with such roles second Oscar and not mountains), the Beautiful Michelle Rodriguez (Stay alive, fast and the furious) played strong and brave, and at the same time devastated widow with young children, Elizabeth Debicki (Guardians of the Galaxy, Agents of A. N. K. L) embodied in life is dependent on the man a woman with early symptoms stoklaskova syndromes sintia Arivo (tunnel) graced the film with his presence and also Colin Farrell added a beautiful feminine part of his charisma.

Hans Zimmer as in all of his films, said the film vein, the volume and the intrigue of what is happening.

Overall the movie you can put a high rating, except for a small misstep.
