Storyline Heading
When four armed robbers are killed in an explosive heist attempt, their widows - with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities - take fate into their own hands to forge a future on their own terms.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Crime Drama Thriller - This is an ensemble heist drama/action thriller aimed at adults. Viola Davis plays the focal character, and her fans should be pleased, as should those of Michelle Rodriguez, who gets a rare opportunity to display her dramatic abilities in addition to those in action. The male actors in the cast are distinctly secondary, including Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, and Robert Duvall. Constant language, brutal violence, and sexual situations make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading
Available on the movies release date.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good If Widows was "just” a heist movie, it would be fun but inconsequential. Narrative elements related to female empowerment and social injustice add layers to this film that enrich the subtext. Widows is dark, gritty, and grim. Most heist movies are assembled as lighthearted fun, but this one oozes solemnity. Yet the movie delivers...

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent ...works on multiple levels simultaneously—as pure pulp entertainment but also as a commentary on how often it feels like we have to take what we are owed or risk never getting it at all.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good ...a rousing thriller with the unlikeliest of criminal sisterhoods. The excellent adaptation of a 1983 British TV series...is a gripping Chicago-set yarn so taut and twisty, you'll need an oxygen tank with your popcorn.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Good For all its flaws, Widows is McQueen's most fascinating, bracing feature to date, a demonstration of the filmmaker embracing his commercial instincts instead of trying to pass them off as weighty and important.
