The Legally Blind Critic’s review published on Letterboxd:
I’m going to start this review by saying that this film isn’t as bad as the critics are saying. In fact, it deserves a lot more positive feedback. At the same time, I was a little disappointed in this film.
Before I get into the flaws, I’d like to touch on SOME things I liked about the film.
The first thing that comes to mind is that visually this is the best Marvel film hands down. The sets are beautiful, the effects are spotless, and the CGI was actually pretty good for the most part. The cast was also very good despite there being like a thousand characters.
Unfortunately, that’s where my praise for the film ends. Because despite all of the positive feedback, I was very disappointed in this film.
It’s time to get in the flaws.
Despite the cast being great, there were too many characters to keep up with everything. All the side characters are uninteresting and boring that I couldn’t help but not pay attention to the film. The story it’s self is hard to understand. I couldn’t tell when the villain was facing our hero’s or talking to them from across the galaxy. The film has too much comedy which is a problem that a lot of the Marvel films have. There’d be a scene that would have a serious moment and it’d be ruined by a joke. I’d have to say my biggest issue with the film is the fact that it’s way too long. The film is two hours and fourth five minutes. It could’ve been two hours and twenty minutes without so many unnecessary scenes.
Overall, the film isn’t bad, but it’s not good either. I’m sure if I watch it again, I might enjoy it more. But I’m going to wait until the 4K comes out.
Eternals gets a C+.
