All that flashbacks and backstories jammed into a two and a half hour movie made it hard for me to properly connect with the characters, kinda made the climax a little less exciting..
I feel like... this movie would have been so much better as a series instead.
Very good visuals, superior acting and a slightly deeper story than most MCU work. what’s not to like?
It’s a shame no other MCU characters feature to mesh this story into the existing marvel canon (a few name drops does not a cameo make)
I think I rank it around a mid-tier Marvel movie. The characters are hard to relate to, but I love seeing all these big cosmic concepts and it’s gorgeous. I’d say it’s the best looking Marvel film, but Zhao’s other films looked beautiful as well, so I should have expected that. I am a Marvel comics fan and a Jack Kirby fan in particular, so it was great to see something solely created by him on the screen. Was this the first (very short) sex scene in a Marvel movie? It gets extra points just for that since these movies are usually so sexless.
Compared to the other 2021 Marvel films, I enjoyed it about the same as Black Widow and Shang-Chi, and probably a little more than WandaVision and Loki, and way more than the Falcon & Winter Soldier. Like I said, I’m coming at this movie as a Kirby fan so I might be biased.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
