The film is a spin-off of Winter Soldier, Civil War & Agent Carter.
The disk contains informations about the biochemicals that were used by HYDRA to obtain the mental conditioning of the Winter Soldiers.
It is not explicitely said but some of the events of the movie (the theft of the disk and Operation Budapest) are probably connected to a secret war between HYDRA (Alexander Pierce) & LEVIATHAN (Dreykov).
Melina is at the same time the scientist who re-engineered the process for Dreykov and one of the first Black Widows that were submitted to it. It is also clear that's the case of Yelena as well. Both Black Widows have been aware of their own servitude for a long time.
In the case of the Black Widow Program, the biochemicals don't stop you from thinking whatever you want but they stop you from doing anything that might be potentially harmful to your handlers.
During Operation Budapest, Natasha found the one & only way to circumvent the problem: she asked Hawkeye to blow up the building where Dreykov's daughter was, hoping that it would kill Dreykov himself at the same time.
Everything seems logical, right?
And, yet, when I think about the trajectories of Natasha & Dreykov from Operation Budapest to 2016, my gut tell me that there's something wrong or, at the very least, something that I don't understand (for example, does Natasha suffer from unexplained selective amnesia?)... The facts, the behaviour of the characters, their career, their personality... In my head, it doesn't match up... I would need more precise information to understand the internal clock of the movie and to appreciate its plot. That's why I think it is incoherent.
There is one main character whose internal clock I understand... Yelena. In her case, I have no problem at all.
Actually, in my opinion, the best part of the movie is the beginning, in Ohio. I wish that the movie would have been like this all the time. And this part was important to make me understand who is Yelena.
There's something funny: I reimagined the story without the involvement of Natasha, Rick Mason, Taskmaster and Ross. I didn't include the episode of Operation Budapest at all... With a few arrangements, it works. Lol! actually, in my case, it works much better!
