Widows is a slow burn psychological thriller.

This movie was entertaining and we'll acted.

Otherwise everything else was long, boring, and most of the time not important to the plot.

The story is just generic and, thus, predictable right the way through.

So today's movie had me concerned that a political thriller was on our way and potentially a slow-moving film like Widows before it.

Excellent cast, really entertaining movie.

Seeing her discover new talents and her true persona is as exciting for us as it is for her.

It's mostly just forgettable and bland with some great actresses in an underwhelming movie.

It was just supposed to be an enjoyable movie.

Generally, I enjoyed it.

She is stunning in this movie.

it's a dumbed down version of Widows, albeit still enjoyable - if there's nothing better to watch.

Honestly, I think that was the worst movie I've ever seen.

Waste of time .

Her character is veryTarantino esq and Elizabeth Moss is one actress I'd pay to see in any movie Her character in The Kitchen is the most compelling and believable .

Very funny moments that are unexpected as they come from the non-comedic actors.

Engaging movie if you like organized crime movies .

Bad acting from McCarthy and crew make this a long boring snoozefest.

This started out very good with a lot of potential and excitement but got really boring by the end, which should have played out differently.

The 102 min length felt longer with the slow pacing and some dragged out and unnecessary scenes, especially towards the end.

The writing in this film is messy, uneven, and somewhat bland.

Elisabeth Moss was so intense.

This is an enjoyable movie.

But just taking the movie as it is , I really enjoyed it.

I enjoyed it.

Don't waste your time or money.

Don't waste your money seeing this movie.

This is so bad it's unwatchable.

Robbie is back to give you another review and this time on:Movie: The Kitchen (2019)Director: Andrea Berloff Writers: Ollie Masters (comic book series), Ming Doyle (comic book series) Stars: Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss LIKES:Setting Story telling Component The Drama and Twists Acting The Sound TrackDISLIKES: Predictable A Little Boring Longer Than It should have been Political overshadowing The Non-Centered AntagonistSUMMARY:For a movie set in a specific time and place, The Kitchen accomplishes the task of stepping back into the past.

The aforementioned issues really hamper the piece, though, as they ensure that emotion is always kept at arms length and that you're never really engaged, leading to a repetitive and ultimately boring film.

Total waste of money.

Disappointing waste of time and talent .

;) I got bored in the second half.

Refreshing and Entertaining .

Great choice - twistedly enjoyable.

Plenty of plot twists that break away from the formulaic scripts that Hollywood can't seem to stop making.

It was a colossal waste of time and money.

Totally unwatchable and unbelievable.

The scenes just dragged out so long and we're boring to watch.

Why the 2 stars you might ask; well I enjoyed the way the film looked cinematically, besides that; a complete waste of time and effort.

The gals all played their roles well, but their story was just bland and unconvincing from the start.

'The Kitchen (2019)' is a tonally inconsistent comic-book adaptation that's as frustrating as it is dull; its behind-the-scenes talent are all top-tier, from Oscar-nominated writer-director Berloff to Oscar-nominated editor Tellefsen, and its on-screen stars are just as acclaimed, with Oscar-nominated McCarthy, Golden Globe-winner Moss and Emmy-winner Haddish making up the leading trio.

Not too too bad, but gets rather boring .

No story.. boring, so long not worth it , I don't get the points or the meaning

Boring .

Melissa McCarthy is stunning .

Every twist and progression in the story and character arcs feel both unexpected and rewarding.

Though a couple of dialogues stand out and a romantic subplot just about makes the cut, the screenplay on the whole is mostly predictable and doesn't hook you.

Out of the three women, Elizabeth Moss's character was the closest to entertaining to watch just because she has a troubled past.

I left the film just feeling empty and would probably forget about this film after watching it.

The tone was very confusing to me.

Wow, that was the worst movie I've seen in years.

This is now the worst movie for me of the year.

Don't waste your time .

Very boring and promote hate toward men.

It's amazing how she went from getting an Oscar nomination for Straight Outta Compton to making one of the worst movies of the year.

Sadly some writing of the movie is too bland.

So boring.

As such, waiting for the ending was a little boring, stuck in the artistic and political components that it was a little slow and drawn out for me.

Very entertaining - great actresses, interesting twist .

I really enjoyed it.

But saddled with dull, lacklustre writing and direction, 'The Kitchen' is an overall letdown.

I enjoyed the 1970s fashion the ladies were stunning the cinematography was good, the storyline was kickass.

First off, the movie suffers from linearity and predictable components.
