Subj: Black Widow film: summer popcorn action movie, not boring but blatantly incoherent plot & one-dimensional villain [no spoilers]

I watched the movie last week (it was released early in my country).
I was not bored but the story doesn't make sense whatsoever.
The main villain is very caricatural.
Florence Pugh's character is the only one who really has the opportunity to shine. She steals the show.
Scarlett Johansson & Rachel Weisz do what they can.
David Harbour plays an over the top comic relief character based on most of the stereotypes that are often associated with Russian bruisers.
Heavy-handed, quite entertaining film but nothing more.
It could have been way better. It could have been far worse.
I have the feeling that Kevin Feige is testing the water in anticipation of the FF movie. The interaction between the four main protagonists reminds me of the "first family".
I would also like to comment the post-credits scene but I don't want to spoil it right now.
