‘Black Widow’ Review: ‘Black Widow’ Is Like Marvel’s Jason Bourne Movie Version

The approach is largely functional, in a more compact style, thanks in part to the sharpness of the action, whose fight sequences have a lot in common with the dynamic aspects of the Bourne saga like superhero-style fireworks. hero, although there is a relative amount of that too. What really defines the film, however, is meeting another “family” of the title character, whose members are equal parts of eccentric and deadly color.
