    Even though it was called Black Widow, I feel like the purpose was more to set up a new avenger than anything, and that's why they released it after endgame.. Throughout the movie, Yelena was sticking out to me as a black widow copy they could use for the mcu going forward and that end credits scene sort of nailed it in the head for me.

    The plot is just a metaphor for “the patriarchy” and “whamen oppression.” And they took “men are pigs” too literally, but the action scenes are pretty raw and epic ig *sigh*

    Everything Marvel ever put out is like the epitome of generic mainstream boredom. It's so goddamn boring that the only redeeming quality is to actually embrace the boredom and just look at all the trivial, non-absolute bullshit panning out in front of you while chugging down beer. Nothing these characters do has any fucking consequences. I bet my ass that they're gonna bring back iron man. Either in an alternative timeline, or as a prequel, or whatever, but his death was just as trivial as anything else happening in the MCU.

    Did you see the massive hit one of the actors took during the fight room of all the women and black widow, I swear one of them hit their head hard on the floor and I'm so suprised they left it in. The parachute scene was pretty bloody stupid, if you have falling debris above you why would you pop your shoot so soon lol. And letting hydra continue at the end is just dumb.

    this movie should of come out right after Infinity war around the same time as Ant-man and the Wasp, would of really made Black Widows role as taking over the "avengers" in Endgame make more sense and as stated brought more impact to her kind of random death. The end credits scene could of been her sister turning to dust.

    I found this movie to be extremely woke and they ruined Taskmaster. Every male character doesn't do anything useful, and the only main characters are kickass women, which would be fine with me if they didn't make it so obvious. In my opinion, it gets 30%, but only because of Black Widow's sister. She was my favorite part of this movie.

    I had two problems with this movie: 1. Reference heavy. Look, I get it’s a Marvel movie and BW is in the Avengers. But I don’t need an Avengers or Captain America reference every 15 minutes. The gas station scene and the prison scene was fine. Should’ve kept it at that. 2. Release date. This movie would’ve been much better if it had come out after CACW. Not to mention all the references wouldn’t have felt as out of place. However, I think this movie could’ve also came out after Endgame instead of SMFFH. They could’ve really connected the two movies, even making Black Widow seem like a flash back from Yelena’s perspective. Then the post credit scene could be in the actual movie and it would really fit. This felt like it would’ve been better off as Yelena’s story rather than so focused on Natasha. But I will admit, BW was quite an enjoyable watch and I don’t have much to complain about. I’d personally give it an 80%.

    This film should have been released in the same slot as captain marvel, and captain marvel should have released in this slot. The reveal of her rescuing Iron man and nebula would have been more exciting and black widow’s death would have had more impact following the stand-alone film’s release

    When Yelena was visiting Natasha's grave, I was like 'wtf how did she die? maybe they will show it in a sequel?'. Then I remembered she jumped off a cliff to save the world from a grape monster. Natasha's death was greatly overshadowed by that of Tony. Her death would've had a better impact on fans if it had been released right after civil war. Also, let's not talk much about the taskmaster. From the trailer, I thought 'he' would've been a good villain. But, uhhhhhhhhhh... yeah. Alexei was Natasha's husband in the comics but whatever, I liked his character. Nobody really cares about the mom. Yelena was used really well in the movie considering that the movie is mainly based on her sister. She was probably the best character in the movie and I'm pretty sure I'm speaking for many other people too. The post-credits scene confirm that she will be a part of at least 1 other movie in the MCU. So, apart from introducing Yelena into the MCU, I don't see the movie serving any other good purpose. Natasha and her backstory had great potential but was not utilized properly. I give it a solid 6.8252415/10.

    This movie had an interesting opening. Then we get this absolutely magnificent, black ops esque opening credits sequence. I’m hyped, I think I’m about to get a really cool spy thriller… Then it just goes down from there and becomes a generic and mediocre marvel movie. Good performances from the main 4 actors especially Florence Pugh, who was easily the best part of the movie. But not enough plot, action or emotional Investment to make the film worth watching outside of marathoning all the marvel movies. Shame really, if this was a gritty and grounded spy film about Natasha defecting and/or the Budapest mission it could have been a stand out film in the marvel catalog.

    I agree with everything you said except the fact that it would have no future impact on the MCU, (spoiler) first they introduced red guardian who could be a character that has cameos in future movies or shows, second Yelena was tasked with taking out Clint Barton by Valentina the same lady who recruited John Walker as the U.S Agent, and when the haykeye show releases Yelena will more than likely be in it. And if Valentina is recruiting people we could a New Avengers team.

Instead they felt...."weak" I don't mean that as they weren't strong they just shoulda been more of a challege.

    To me, the movie served two purposes. First, we learn how Black Widow got herself “out of the red” - how she “paid her debt” to society. Now that thousands of widow operatives have free will, she is “set free” and thus sports the blonde look instead of her traditional “in the red” locks. Second, and more financially important, Disney can spin this off to a small screen series to increase their revenue. That’s just my take. What do you think?

    They ruined every single conflict by having Natasha be the one fighting, cause we immediately knew she would win and suspense was lost. The smarter decision wouldve been to have her parents fight or her sister fight the main bad guys. Or maybe, just didnt do this whole lost family thing and went with an origin story focused on Budapest, cause it wouldve been 10 times better.
