"Eternals" opens after two films that have done well between the box office and audience. "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" figure with a resounding 92% acceptance, while "Black Widow" also stays at a decent. its predecessors that have been released in the year 2021?.
The path to the Eternals Abyss continues. Chloé Zhao's film, one of the most ambitious and spectacular of recent times within Marvel Studios. Has been beaten by specialized critics and has become the target of the most uncompromising fans as it is the target of the method known as' review bombing 'on portals like IMDb. But what is clear, at least for the moment, is that it has not convinced anyone or almost anyone and is already the worst film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in professional and public evaluations.
Eternals will hit theaters just over a week, counting Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden or Kit Harrington among its main stars, and adding a new layer of cosmic complexity to the events narrated in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Almost immortal beings, Deviants and new dangers come together in a very epic science fiction plot that has failed to conquer either the specialized press or the most supportive public of superhero films. Right now, on Rotten Tomatoes, Eternals is the lowest rated movie on the web behind the negative milestone Thor: The Dark World was.
The comments allude to the fact that, beyond the face and spectacular letter of introduction for this group of powerful beings, nothing works in the film. Critics complain about the artistic choices, the lack of identity of the characters and the excessive use of music. We remind you that in Metacritic Eternals for now it has a score of 60, making Chloé Zhao's feature film the fourth worst Marvel film on that portal, another indication of the film's stumbling block among critics.
Logically, it will be necessary to see how these superheroes defend themselves at the box office and if Marvel Studios ends with another Shang-Chi case and the legend of the ten rings, but it seems that another disaster is brewing within the MCU such as Thor: The Dark World.
After dividing the critics and suffering "review bombing" on IMDB, 'Eternals' is now also the movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but rated on Rotten Tomatoes. At the time of writing this article, the film directed by Chloé Zhao has 60% positive reviews, which places it below 'Thor: The Dark World' that until now, and with 66%, was the one it had the lowest rating of the franchise.
'Eternals' has not even been released in theaters yet and does not reach commercial theaters until November 5 (the 3 in some European countries), so when you see it more critically the numbers could change, although it does not seem that is going to improve things a lot.
Starring Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Kit Harington and Kumail Nanjiani among others, 'Eternals' tells the story of a race of immortal beings, the Eternals, who have secretly lived on Earth for thousands of years . Created by entities called Celestials, they are tasked with re-uniting and fighting together against a terrible threat looming over the planet: evil ones, the Deviants.
Probably thanks to the fact that it doesn't have Tom Holland in its cast (just kidding), 'Eternals' is going to make it to theaters relatively spoiler-free, although that was almost spoiled by Salma Hayek at Comic-Con 2019. As revealed In 'The Graham Norton Show', during the SDCC of that year the actress began to ask Zhao questions out loud, very loud, and the director of 'Nomadland' had to remind her that when it comes to Marvel, even the walls have ears.
There is still a little more than a week for Eternals to hit theaters, but there are those who have already seen it (press and other specialized media) and formed their opinion. Among those media is none other than Rotten Tomatoes, which Chloé Zhao's film has not been as enthusiastic as one might expect.
Right now, Eternals is the worst rated movie on the web behind even the worst rated so far, Thor: The Dark World. 63% have obtained the feature film starring Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek and many more, with various negative comments. "With little imagination for action and a cast of characters that are rarely interesting," some comment on the cast.
Those of Rotten Tomatoes are reviews that generally point to the lack of identity on the part of the director of Nomadland in this new adventure: "From the visual effects to the choice of music, there is a lack of style here that is only accentuated by the film's refusal to focus, "commented others.
There will not be long to wait to see it and the public can judge for themselves (and get their own vote on the web), but for now the first impressions are not entirely flattering if they place Eternals behind a whole MCU disaster as It was Thor: The Dark World.
Durante estos últimos meses, tanto el productor Kevin Feige como la directora Chloé Zhao han hablado sobre la diversidad de Eternals y su esfuerzo por ayudar a la inclusión del superhéroe gay del UCM Phastos, interpretado por Brian Tyree Henry—; sumado la primera superheroína sorda de Marvel — Makkari, interpretada por Lauren Ridloff. Estos gestos, que ayudan a normalizar la realidad en la que vivimos, no ha gustado a una serie de aficionados.
