Black Widow Movie Review For Moms
I loved the emotional story, the superb action, and the epic soundtrack.
I love that our beloved Natasha Romanova gets her moment to shine and we learn her long-awaited powerful backstory.
She’s such a strong woman and we discover where her strength comes from, we get to meet her family, and learn about her upbringing, which leads to the movie having some memorable characters and intense action!
There are plenty of twists and surprises and you’re on the edge of your seat from start to finish.
There are a lot of references to family dysfunction, trauma, and PTSD, and all of it makes for great quotes, with amazing delivery.
You will love ALL THE GIRL POWER, too.
Is The New Black Widow Movie Safe for Kids?
Many moms have questions about whether Black Widow is a safe film for kids. Because of Natasha’s past, Black Widow is certainly a dark Marvel movie with themes that can be inappropriate or premature for kids and even triggering for adults.
Black Widow is rated PG-13, so you may not want to watch with the little ones. I watched it only with my teen daughters.
Language: There is a lot of profanity in Black Widow, so you want to watch this one without the little ones.
Mature Content: There is a lot of violence and adult themes in Black Widow. There is also a character that is masked and portrayed in a scary way throughout the movie. It was quite intense. There is alcohol drinking and not only disturbing imagery, but also a discussion of psychological conditioning and involuntary hysterectomy.
I loved that they filmed in several locations such as Morocco, Norway, Budapest, and The Bahamas.
The soundtrack was incredible… from Cheap Thrills by Sia to American Pie, to Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana.
It filled my heart with joy when I saw Jack Kirby and Stan Lee’s names in the credits and the mid-credit scene with Val!
Black Widow Movie Quotes
I’m sharing the best quotes from Natasha Romanoff, Mason, Alexei, Melina Vostokoff, and Yelena Belova below. Let me know if I missed a line you loved!
Natasha Romanoff Quotes
You may have heard this Black Widow quote in the movie trailer: “Before I worked for S.H.I.E.L.D., I made mistakes, but I’m done running from my past.”
Guess what? It’s not in the movie!
“You don’t know everything about me. The Avengers weren’t my first family.” ~ Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow
“At some point, we all have to choose between what the world wants you to be and who you are.” ~ Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow
“It’s never easy these days.” ~ Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow
“I’ve lived a lot of lives, but I’m done running from my past.” ~ Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow
“It’s good to see you too, Sis.” ~ Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow
“We have unfinished business.” ~ Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow

“It was real to me, too.” ~ Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow
“So are we going to talk like grownups?” ~ Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow [ Yelena responds: “Is that what we are?”, which is so painfully accurate. When you’ve grown up with trauma, you don’t learn to act or talk like a grownup because you have developmental gaps ]
Let’s explore Yelena Belova’s quotes next!
Quotes from Yelena Belova
Not sure whether that’s a spoiler, but I’ll have to say that Yelena Belova has some of the best lines in Black Widow. I couldn’t write fast enough to catch all her wit and wisdom!

“What brings you home?” Yelena Belova
“Lucky us.” ~ Yelena Belova [Ugh tugs at my heartstrings]
“It has a lot of pockets, but I use them all the time!” ~ Yelena Belova [ So funny! I am a big fan of pockets – are you? And this line was a bit painful for me, as well. When all you know is scarcity and trauma, the little wins are everything! ]
“I’m not the killer that little girls call their hero.” ~ Yelena Belova [That one hurt]
“Well, what was I supposed to do? You’re the only superhero person that I know.” ~ Yelena Belova [Probably my favorite quote from Black Widow!]
“Ok, you got a plan, or shall I just stay, duck, and cover?” ~ Yelena Belova
“I doubt the god from space has to take an ibuprofen after a fight.” ~ Yelena Belova [She’s always keeping it real and, YES, she’s talking about Thor!]
“You’re such a mom.” ~ Yelena Belova
“The truth rarely makes sense when you leave out key details.” ~ Yelena Belova
“To him, we are just things.” ~ Yelena Belova
“I was the chore, the job you didn’t want to do. To me, you were everything.” ~ Yelena Belova [This broke my heart and warmed my heart, too!]
“You’re a poser.” ~ Yelena Belova
Other Black Widow Character Quotes

“The Red Room is your home now.” ~ Dreykov [If you’ve watched the MCU movies, you’ve been wondering about The Red Room for as long as I have, and we get to learn all about it in the Black Widow movie – finally! ]
“Family. Back together again.” Alexei Shostakov / The Red Guardian
“You got fat.” ~ Melina Vostokoff (to The Red Guardian)
“People who have friends don’t call me.” ~ Mason. [I loved Mason’s and Natasha’s relationship ~ much like Natasha’s and Steve’s! ]

“Tell me, how did you keep your heart?” ~ Melina Vostokoff
“Can you imagine what I could do with an Avenger under my control?” ~ Dreykov [As you can guess, he is the villain in Black Widow and a cringy one. It’s so easy to despise this character!]

I don’t pay you to worry.
The truth rarely makes sense when you omit key details.
Great plan – I love the part where I almost bled to death.
Pain and suffering is every day.
To him, we are just things. Weapons with no face that he can just throw away.
I never let myself be alone where I have to think about it.
You’re going to give me some hero speech. I can feel it.
I never had control over my own life and now I do.
Aw, he’s sensitive! Is that why you keep him around?
It’s dry – it’s really dry.
You’re a very annoying individual.
This will be a cool way to die.
Trust me, this isn’t pleasure.
What is with this tension?
No one can match your effectiveness, your ruthlessness.
Let go of me now, you smell really bad.
I want them to follow their dreams, reach for the stars.
We stole the key to unlocking free will.
You are an idiot, and you are a coward.
You were born in a cage but that’s not your fault.
What you taught me kept me alive.
When you look into the eyes of a child you have raised.
Don’t tell me to stop.
These girls were trash. I recycle the trash. I give them a life.
Forgive me, little sister. I should have come back for you.
It was real to me, too.
I’m allergic to the midwest.
Coming back here makes you look desperate.
