After the events in Captain America: Civil War, Natasha goes into hiding. As we know, this never works out well.

Rated PG-13
Running time: 133 Mins

While hiding out in Norway, she is attacked by a masked character who seems to be after something she didn’t know she had. Trying to figure out where it came from,she reunites with her long lost sistra and they team up to take the fight to the bad guys.

This is a beautiful film. The cinematography as good as it gets, which is what we expect from Marvel. A good score, big explosions, top-notch fighting choreography. Florence Pugh brought it, as did everyone. Lots of humor, which works to keep a very dark plot light. I especially like the way that Yelena makes fun of Romanff’s hero pose.

However, this film has the same flaws that annoy me in a lot of films, which is ducking gunshots and running through hails of machine gun bullets unscathed. And all of the men are either goofballs (especially The Red Guardian) or evil maniacs (like Dreykov).

I hightly recommend this one. If you watch it at home, you can skip through the 15 minutes of credits to get to the post-credits scene, which is well worth watching.

Flytrap rating: 7.5/10
