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.


Totally opposite opinion. The plot is extremely coherent. It's the typical Red Room story, plus this fake Russian spy family. You cannot possibly have a villain that's more than one-dimension when you deal with this subject matter.

And I typically can barely stand Natasha. The only thing that made me like this movie is that she had a lot of help. She couldn't have held this movie on her own. This might even be Disney's best family movie in the past decade, imo.

My biggest problem was this version of Taskmaster. They didn't have to waste such a cool idea on this.
