The critic reviews for the movie have just started pouring in, and they seem mostly positive. There are hardly any negative reactions to the film.

It is surely going to do amazing at the box office, and fans will surely not be disappointed.

Variety, in their initial review for the movie stated some pretty positive things. They stated that Scarlett’s character has been a kick ass fighter in sleek leather since her debut in Marvel, and he expected more of the same from Black Widow. But the movie went much further than that. And it is so much more than all of that. It’s more interesting and absorbing.

The Guardian has had similar positive things to say about the movie. They stated that the well overdue Black Widow is finally here, and they’re really happy with it. They found the film highly enjoyable and it is the film that Black Widow, as a character, deserved for the longest time.

IndieWire, in their review, stated that Black Widow was a well made film and credited its creators. They also stated that they really liked the dynamic established by the movie between the four characters, especially Yelena. The dynamic is a really interesting part of the film, just until it unravels down to pure fighting sequences and big spectacles, in typical Marvel fashion. But that is something that comes with the territory when it comes to Marvel films.

The Verge also had mostly positive words for the movie, stating that it is a solid action movie for what it is.

Slash Film wasn’t too impressed with the film though, stating that the movie was typical of Marvel, and found itself burying Black Widow’s character once again.
