Widows | Ratings & Reviews

"It's nail-biting,and features messy, rough and intensely real female characters, rather than what Hollywood usually struggles to serve up."

Flicks, Katie ParkerFlicks

"Oscar-winning director Steve McQueen's latest film is a highly anticipated thriller starring Viola Davis. Ahead of the film's theatrical release next month, critic Alexandra Heller-Nicholas provides an early look at one of the year's must-see releases."

"It's a stark, violent, cynical but thoroughly entertaining caper picture."


"It presents an enjoyably dark and sleazy vision of ordinary lives intertwining with the hurly-burly of street thuggery, local machine politics, and half a dozen other forms of daily corruption."


"Widows is rife with pertinent detail, doled out sharply by McQueen. He's not a subtle filmmaker, exactly, but his indicating has a gracefulness to it."

Vanity FairVanity Fair

"A flawed but fascinating mismatch between director and project, Widows is tough on crime, but even tougher on the causes of crime."

The TimesThe Times

"McQueen is in confident control of the material. It's such a thrill to see him at play with genre material and Widows glides like so few multiplex-packing thrillers do these days."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Widows is the marriage of Flynn's instinct for the twist and the strong female lead, with McQueen's flair for the frame and visual metaphor. It has produced one of the strongest films of 2018. Terrifically recommended."


"Gripping, corrosive and superbly acted..."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"An absorbing, sociologically loaded crime drama."
