Eternals ★★★

After the tragic events of Avengers: Endgame, the Eternals, ancient beings who have been living on Earth since the beginning of mankind’s origin, they reunite against humanity’s most ancient enemy, the Deviants.

Although as visually striking and compelling as a marvel movie gets, Eternals’s absence of likability is simply due to the fact that it’s way too overly long. While not exactly boring, it certainly isn’t particularly exciting either, lacking the enjoyable wit of marvel films. Eternals is more serious with its tone and more patient with its pacing, it takes too long to get to the good stuff, and its more cerebral and adult elements, such as the attention to nature and the brief sex scene, may appeal more to grownups than kids. At the same time, even an adult, would be expecting more of an action packed prospect, given the premise, and it’s bound to disappoints in that compartment. Though not exactly filled to the brim with entertainment, this movie definitely deserves a watch in the theatre, with its hauntingly beautiful imagery. If there’s one thing director Zhao knows how to do, it’s creating a gorgeously immersive experience, and that’s exactly what she did here. Some of the visuals were so beautiful… I think I almost died; this picture is, in a way, an artistic spectacle through humanity’s evolution. That being said, what I’m looking for in a superhero flick aren’t stunning images, but an action packed, supposedly comedic at times, fun and thrilling watch, which you don’t get much of in Eternals.
