“Widows” is a great way to kick off the Holiday Season!!
Four woman who have nothing in common eventually come together because their husbands are dead due to their criminal activities and it soon comes to light that a debt was left behind and those who think they are owed come to collect. The story unfolds from there…
“Widows” is a gritty suspenseful drama. The movie is well executed and has lots of intrigue and enough action to keep you interested. Definitely a great way to start the holiday season at the box office.
“Widows” is an excellent collaborative effort between writer Gillian Flynn (“Gone Girl”) and director Steve McQueen III (“12 Years a Slave”).
This is a 4 Star Movie!!
The widely popular hit T.V. show from the 60’s “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” comes to the big screen!
Henry Cavill plays Napoleon Solo opposite Armie Hammer who plays KGB Agent Illya Kuryakin. Agent Kuryakin has been trying to capture and/or kill Napoleon Solo, but due to circumstances beyond either gentlemen’s control, they are thrown together to help destroy an International Criminal Organization.
They must locate a renowned scientist who went missing years ago. It seems he is the link to finding and destroying the International Criminal Organization before they start launching nuclear weapons. Napoleon Solo locates the missing Scientist’s daughter Gaby Teller (Alicia Vikander). Gaby does not know where her father is but wants to find him. She teams up with Napolean Solo and Agent Illya Kuryakin.
The story unfolds from there…
Although a definite take on the 1960’s T.V. show, the movie is fresh! Based in 1963, there are no mobile phones, no tablets, no laptops, just plain old fashion espionage, torture and ingenuous subterfuge.
The sound track is pretty good also! There will definitely be a sequel. This installment sets up the sequel very nicely.
If you were a fan of the 1964-68 hit T.V. show “The Man from U.N.C.L.E” starring Robert Vaughn and David McCallum, this is your movie!!
This is a 3 1/2 Star Movie!
