Eternals ★★★½

Zhao aims for a natural balance between a promising new direction and the familiar MCU-isms. An approach that felt needed in this transitional phase.

The large scope and cast work both for and against it, but in my opinion it never really goes too grand. It also doesn’t rely too heavily on the action to the point where character moments are sacrificed. The emotional connections have a pivotal role and it’s those dramatic beats where this film shines most. 

Pretty satisfied overall because this could’ve been a lot worse!
