Widows (2018)

Rated: R - Runtime: 128 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

This is the darkest Ocean's 11 sequel ever.  It's not really, of course.  It has nothing to do with that franchise, but it uses that template.  It's far better written and far less fun than any of those movies.  Most characters are desperate, nasty and relentless.  This is a tale of survival of the fittest more than anything, and it's really well done.

Where it weakens is the ending.  Without spoiling that, I don't see how the direction they go could be plausible.
