Black Widow was a fantastic movie, I know, you don't really need to reach much more after seeing that, but hey, we'll write up a review anyway.

So Black Widow initially in the Iron Man movie and other Marvel movies seems like someone who has interesting loyalties, doesn't so much follow the laws of man rather the unspoken laws of human relationships, which to me, I respect, but I'm more so a person who's about the laws of man, and if you don't follow those, you get in big trouble, but Black Widow? She's basically a ninja. I'm not. Hence, each person has to know their place.

With that being said, in Black Widow the movie introduces you to her ch*ldhood, which is alright I suppose, until it's revealed that the father is actually a pretty self-centered guy and everyone is essentially just an actor (actor-inception really) aka a mole or sleeper cell for the Russians. The family escapes on a plane and once they land, the two sisters, Black Widow and her soon-to-be equally talented ninja sibling are knocked out and then trained to become essentially puppets of some fat guy.

So the family reunites at a later date, they have difficulty getting back into the swing of things as their ch*ldhood was difficult and they're all not sure if they're really family or not. They want to be, but they're all confused because yes, they were playing roles but no, they actually spent three years being a family together so it had to stick with them right?

Turns out, it did stick with them, the story is ultimately designed to relate with people who have families of their own, who dislike men who control women and use them to do their bidding and generally the whole "Evil fat ab**ive white man must stop him" theme runs strong.

I liked how this movie cast people well, there was diversity in the movie, but diversity that made sense, nothing seemed forced or token. 

I don't want to give an enormous amount away about the movie, but just know, obviously like all Marvel Movies (except for the one where Spider-Man literally dies) this comes with a happy ending. It's a bit of a feminist leaning movie, but it's one that actually makes sense and again, isn't forced.

I really appreciate how delicate and precise the storyline was, I appreciate how much effort was put into this movie and how well the actors all did their jobs to hold up the Marvel standard... now if only they could share their wisdom and skill with whoever was behind the abomination that was the Loki series, that would be great.
