Widows is an exciting and suspenseful heist thriller that proves itself to be about much more than just the heist itself. It's a stinging social commentary on modern-day America that is backed by powerful performances.
[T]his genre piece is much more than most of its pulpy brethren showing up in movie theaters and it's refreshing to see such vivid characters, as well as such stinging commentary on racism and sexism on display in a thriller.
