Harry Rawlings, a renowned thief, is killed alongside his partners Carlos, Florek, and Jimmy during a botched robbery. His widow, Veronica, is threatened by crime boss Jamal Manning, from whom Harry and his partners robbed $2 million. Jamal needs the money to finance his electoral campaign for alderman of a South Side precinct, where he is running against Jack Mulligan, the next-in-line of the Mulligan political family who have historically dominated the alderman position. Veronica discovers Harry's notebook, which contains a detailed plan for a heist worth $5 million. She decides to carry out the plan to repay her debt to Jamal, and recruits two of the other widows, Alice and Linda, to assist her. The fourth widow, Amanda, does not show at their initial meeting; when Veronica visits Amanda and learns she has a newborn child, she opts not to mention the heist plan to her. Alice buys the getaway car and guns, while Linda is tasked with deciphering a blueprint in Harry's plan. Alice uses David, a real estate executive with whom she is in a transactional relationship, to identify the blueprint as a safe in Jack Mulligan's home..

If you're a fan of either of the leads, this movie will probably be the best of both worlds. What really caught my eye was the performance of the mother, played by Sofia Boutella. This woman is simply gorgeous and completely down to earth. Her acting is extremely well done, and it's easy to see why she's been chosen to star in two of the best movies of the year, "The Notebook" and "The Jungle Book." She's a fantastic actress and I look forward to see what she can do in the future. If you're a fan of Sofia or Brad, this movie is definitely for you. If you're not a fan of either of them, this is a great movie to see, but definitely not for the small screen.

Lily Collins is a tenacious young journalist with a terrible secret. When her own secret is discovered, she is ostracized from the press and her apartment. On the edge of an identity crisis, she's offered the chance to return to the scene of the crime but, like everyone else in the world, she doesn't know if she wants to go back. 'Widows' is an excellent movie about how one person can have the power to change lives. While the main character is portrayed as an absolute powerhouse, it is the supporting characters that help drive the story. Though the writing is uneven, it is all the more effective because of the characters. The plot is not linear but the strength of the characters and their relationship with each other makes up for it. This movie isn't for everyone but if you are a fan of Jane Austen, you will like it. For a more straightforward but still enjoyable movie, watch 'The House on Sorority Row' or 'A Walk to Remember.' Both of these films are great movies that are worth the time to watch.

I was not expecting to see a film with a title like this but to my surprise it was better than I thought it would be. I would love to have known that it was going to be a film with a twist or twist, I thought it would be a straight up thriller. The film begins with two young girls making out in a car which takes them to a remote area. They decide to stay there for a while to get some privacy but soon they are taken prisoner by a gang of mercenaries. They are picked up by the leader of the gang who holds them for ransom and threatens to kill them unless they pay the money. The leader of the gang is also the brother of the girl who was taken prisoner and this is when the film gets really good. The first half of the film is a thriller and then the action kicks in. The girls are kidnapped by the gang and then the action starts. The action is well executed and it is great to see the action in a movie and not just CGI. The characters in the film are well developed and they do have a life to them. I liked how the film focuses on the girls instead of the characters in the gang. It makes the film more realistic and makes the film much better. It was great to see the girl's relationship with their brother in the film. It was really interesting to see the girls turn from being this innocent innocent girls and being taken hostage to becoming this hardened hardened killer. The acting in this film is really good and it is very well done. I especially liked the acting of Nia Long who plays the girl who is taken hostage. The way that she was acting really gave the film an edge. She is a great actress and I really hope she is in a lot more films because I would love to see her in more films. The film was well directed and the film was well shot. The camera work was very well done. The film is a well made film with a great story and I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in a film about a girl who is kidnapped and goes through a hell of a journey. I highly recommend this film. 8/10

I think this movie is a masterpiece. The story is interesting, the actors are great, and the film is very well done. The movie is not as simple as the title would suggest, it has a great twist, which makes the film very unique. The ending is excellent, it is hard to believe that it is a movie about this subject, but it is a great ending, and it makes the movie so much better. The performances are great, and the story is very interesting, and the film is not that simple. I think this movie deserves a lot more recognition, and I will give it a 9/10. Recommended.

This film deals with a lot of themes, such as drugs and prostitution. There are many themes in this film, and some are well explored. It's really sad that these themes are still used in some films. This film is the first film to deal with these topics, and it is a good start. It is sad, but it's a start. The acting is superb, the acting of the mother and her son is brilliant, and the performance of the husband is also brilliant. There are many scenes that I could watch over and over again, which is a bit like a film, but this film is more than just a film. The story is great, it is intelligent, and it is very moving, this film is a very good film. 8/10

What makes this film so great is that it's not a straight-up story, but more of a drama. You feel like you're watching a movie in real life, even if it's not a story of a kidnapping. This film does take place in a real city, but the scenes are so real, and the characters so unique, you just feel like you're watching a movie. This film shows what real life is like and what's so great about it. The main characters are very believable, the actors who play the women are very good and the camera work is great. I can't get enough of this film. I will definitely be buying the DVD when it's out on DVD.

I'm sorry for being negative. This film had a great story line. It's about a woman named Emily who finds herself being stalked by a murderer who has a strange connection with the family of the woman he kills. Her mother is a professor at a university in the UK. The killer is a psychotic man named Alex who takes Emily's mom to his place in a small town in the US. There he forces her to give him an old letter. She's scared but she is forced to give the letter to her mother. The letters are filled with a whole lot of information about the killer. The police aren't interested in the letter and Emily doesn't have any means of contacting the police. The killer knows that Emily has an estranged daughter, who has an interest in her father. The police are obsessed with the letter and Emily is in no way connected to the killer. The police are completely crazy and refuse to believe the letter. The police are starting to lose their minds. This is the first movie I've ever watched that had a thriller. I was never really involved with the story. There was no real story. The story line is good, but it's all set in a very dark, creepy house with no lights on. I was wondering how the killer was getting around. There was no light in the house and the windows were sealed. There were no people around except for the killers. I don't know how he could have killed anyone. The ending was very sad and depressing. I was looking forward to the next movie in the series but it was bad. I was very disappointed. I think this is one of the best horror movies I've ever seen. It has a good story line. It's not scary, but it's a good movie. I recommend it. 8/10

I don't know why I have never seen this movie, but I finally saw it tonight. It was a good movie. It was entertaining, and I felt for all of the characters. I think it was a good movie to show your kids how to deal with the pressures that come from being in the business, and that you need to get through it, even if it's hard to do. I think it's a great movie to show your friends that the struggle is real. It shows how the business is, and how you feel when you know it's over. It's a great movie to show your friends that there are a lot of people who feel the same way you do.

I have been a film critic for a very long time. I was not very impressed by this film at the time of its release, but I watched it many times and found it so entertaining that I watched it again a year later. After a decade of film criticism, I have come to think that no one knows what they are talking about when they comment on films. I have seen one bad review of this film and the writer took it to heart. It was so amusing. I would suggest that anyone with an interest in film history watch this film and be amazed at how things have changed so much. The cast is great, and the screenplay is good. I would recommend it to anyone.

Forget the super-heroes, the superheroes are only a symbol for what is going on in this film. I was very impressed with this movie. It was beautifully shot, the actors were great, and the story was very believable. It was so much better than other movies I have seen. This movie was different than other movies that I have seen. It was a refreshing change to see a movie that was not all action, and was more about a story. I would recommend this movie to anyone, and would recommend it to everyone.

This is a dark story of a woman who is attacked and raped by a gang of boys. The film opens with a montage of a woman telling her story. I didn't understand the point of that. I was expecting a more traditional, more linear narrative. The women were unsympathetic and the protagonist, Vera, was downright unsympathetic. There was little reason to care about her. Her behavior seemed completely forced and staged. The girl who played her sister was a hoot as well, but her character was even more unconvincing. The entire female cast was particularly unappealing. The boys did a great job with their characters. One of the best parts of the film was the production design. The costumes and sets were really quite good. The movie also had a very cool, clean look. The film was very stylish and polished, like a lot of high school films. The sound was good too. Overall, I liked the movie, but I wasn't blown away by it. There are definitely worse films out there, and I would say that this is one of them.

At first I thought this movie was just going to be another boring Hollywood-cop-nonsense with no story or plot, but it turns out it's actually much better than that. This movie was so well thought out that I actually started to feel for the characters, instead of just sitting back and waiting for them to die. It's a good movie with a good story. Not perfect but very good.

I first saw this film in the cinema and then bought the DVD. I found it to be very suspenseful and interesting. It was also a very well written story. The story is very real. It is very believable. It was very interesting how the main character ended up in the middle of all this, he had a lot of help. There was a lot of things that were done in the film that just went over my head. The plot was very realistic and interesting. The acting was very good, although I felt it was a bit over the top. I found that some of the characters were a bit over the top but it was very well written. I also found it interesting that it was filmed in the middle of all this, because you could hear all the gunshots going off in the background. The director did a great job at making this film look very real, I could see all the guns and gunfire going off all the time. It was very realistic and very well done. I also liked the way the characters were supposed to look, I thought the main character looked very much like an Australian male, the part that I found most interesting was how the wife felt. I thought it was very realistic. She had problems with her husband, but I think she had problems with herself and with the world. It was very real and I thought it was very well done. Overall, I thought it was a very well written film and very interesting.

There is a scene that was so unexpected, that it made me laugh out loud. I can't even explain it, just watch the scene. This is a movie that I will definitely watch again. I have seen it a few times and it keeps me guessing. There is a lot of detail that went into this movie and it shows. I think that there is a lot of symbolism and symbolism that is gone over that I am not familiar with. I love how there is a scene in the movie that I can't put my finger on it, but it has some of the most beautiful cinematography in the world. It is a beautiful film that is easily as good as any of the previous Bourne movies. I'm looking forward to seeing this movie again and it is really an experience.

I recently saw this movie and it was absolutely brilliant. It was very interesting and well written, the acting was great and the cinematography was amazing. I loved the fact that this movie had a very realistic feel to it, the characters were very believable, I really felt for them. This movie is definitely not for everyone but if you like to watch a good movie then this is a must see. I give it a 9/10 and I can't wait to see it again.

I was only 15 years old when I saw the original in 1977. I have never seen another movie about a woman who is murdered by her husband. That changed my view of movies about women. The first "widows" was a little different. I'm surprised that the "widows" made such an impact. However, I am not surprised by the second movie. This movie was extremely exciting. It was very intense. I would recommend it to anyone who loves suspense and thrillers. It's very dark, very graphic, and very brutal. I really like it. The story was very interesting and the ending was amazing. The special effects were fantastic. It was extremely hard to tell what was happening. However, the acting was good. I don't think it's the best movie ever made, but it was very entertaining. It's one of the best movies ever made.

I love how they get into the character of this movie. What a great story. I thought it was one of the best movies I have ever seen. This movie made me feel so bad for the characters. I think it is very realistic about the war in Iraq. I thought it was very good and it was a great movie. I loved it. I really enjoyed the ending. I think the actors did a great job. I thought it was a great movie.
