Alexei (a super soldier) and Melina (a Black Widow) poses as a normal family in Ohio, along with Natasha and Yelena as their daughters. When the mission is completed, the foursome escapes to Cuba to rendezvous with General Dreykov. General Dreykov put Natasha and Yelena through the Red Room training.

Years later, Natasha, is now known as the Black Widow, has now defected to S.H.I.E.L.D and on the run after allegedly violating the Sokovia Accord. She hides at a safe house in Norway.

Meanwhile, Yelena, who is also a Black Widow, kills a rogue former Black Widow and accidentally exposed to a substance during the fight. The substance frees her from the Red Room's mind control. She immediately sends the substance to Natasha.

Upon receiving the parcel from Yelena, Natasha is followed by the Taskmaster, who is after the substance that is an antidote. She manages to outrun the Taskmaster and reunites with Yelena in Budapest, where they were both attacked by a gang of Black Widows. 

Natasha learns that General Dreykov is still alive - despite that she is so convinced that she has killed him and her daughter during his office bombing years ago. Thus, the Red Room is still active and Yelena determines to use the antidote to free her fellow Black Widow friends, who are still undergoing the training in the Red Room.

Together the duo frees Alexei from prison in order to learn the General's location, only to find out that he is also clueless to the General's whereabouts. Their best bet is to find Melina as she is the one who developed the substance. 

They tracked down Melina and have a 'reunion' as Melina and Alexei calls it. Heartbroken that the others consider that theirs were not a real family, Yelena refuses to accept that fact. 

Melina gives away their location to General Dreykov and within minutes, the others were captured and flown to the General's hideout. 

Where is General Dreykov's Red Room? Will Natasha and Yelena able to free their fellow Black Widow from the Red Room?

MOVIE REVIEW

Plot: 4.8/ 5.0 Every family has its own drama - even the make-up ones. In this one, you'll learn about Black Widow's past and there are so many Black Widows. 

The family drama - the past drama and the twist at the end falls nicely in the movie. 

This one has lots of action and I am loving it.  

Cast: 4.8/ 5.0 I love the cast - Rachel Weisz is beautiful and reminds me of her in The Mummy series. David's character is funny. The sisters? I love the duo!

Will I watch it again: I would love to see this in the cinema - with all the sound effects.

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.

  2. Dah tengok. Memang best. Akak suka any Marvels Film. Layannnnn. Black Widow ni diantara watak akak nak dia sentiasa ada. Macam women empowerment kan. Survivor skills dia memang A! Keluarga tipu-tipu mereka ni lawak kan. Akak suka mereka terus move on dan let Natasha pergi berkhidmat untuk Avengers. While mereka bantu Widow yang lain. Red Guardian, Mak dia scientists. Adik dia Helena tu pun syok watak dia. Posing skit. Hahahaha.
