Does the Supreme Court of the United States have the *Constitutional* right of judicial review?

I have been reading about this topic and find myself getting confused. Any thoughts and discussions on this issue will be appreciated.

Why do you ask? I'll leave it to someone who has knowledge of US law to give you a definitive answer but I should imagine that even if the US Constitution does not explicitly provide for judicial review, it would be viewed as an implied term of the Constitution.
I lean toward thinking that judicial review, though perhaps not explicit, is justifiable, but I am trying to come to a more refined, clear position on the issue. This is relevant to me personally because the Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and this is an issue related to that; I care about the principles contained in the Constitution: that's where we derive some of our most important rights, for instance, the freedom of and from religion (first amendment). This becomes even more relevant to atheists because there are many violations of the separation of church and state in this country.
