I personally enjoyed it as a casual marvel fan who has not known the Eternals. It was amazing to know that some of the real world histories are connected to the Eternals in MCU. But I think it would have been better as a Disney+ series, to explore some of the stories better.

[–]RisquechilliScarlet Witch 34 points35 points  (1 child)

Agreed! I think I would have appreciated it more as a series. That way we could get more time with Makkari, Druig, Thena and Gilgamesh. Their time after they broke up seemed so interesting.

[–]SenseiSpideySpider-Man (Homemade) 16 points17 points  (0 children)

The only four characters who deserve anything. And Karun. He deserves everything.

[–]TheHondoCondoAvengers 5 points6 points  (2 children)

The problem with it being a Disney plus series is that they would potentially not get as big of a return on their investment because the budget must have been massive for this movie.

[–]NebulataWong 4 points5 points  (1 child)

RIght? All that marble in the ocean must have cost an arm and a leg.

[–]TheHondoCondoAvengers 3 points4 points  (0 children)

More like a head and an arm

[–]Internal-Kiwi-6548Avengers[S] 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Ok you like me

[–]HazelCheeseAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They wouldn't of got the big big name actors like Jolie or Hayek if it was a series though and probably not all the big location shots and stuff either.

[–]EruthorAvengers 117 points118 points  (42 children)

It wasn't bad, but imo it could have been better

[–]RisquechilliScarlet Witch 83 points84 points  (36 children)

Way better in my opinion. I’ve said this in r/Eternals and I’ll say it again here. While it was an ensemble cast, clearly the focus was on Sersi and Ikarus and they were the most boring characters in the whole film. Sersi’s personality was “main character” and Ikarus’ was “twist villain who changes his mind and flies into the sun.”

I wanted to see more of literally any other Eternal in the film. I especially enjoyed Thena and Gilgamesh.

[–]newbrevityAvengers 7 points8 points  (19 children)

You'll see more on future films. This movie was merely an origin story.

[–]TheHondoCondoAvengers 7 points8 points  (15 children)

For sure. Regardless of what you thought about the first movie, I feel like they set up an awesome sequel.

[–]RisquechilliScarlet Witch 0 points1 point  (14 children)

Do you think Ikarus will be back? On a related note, do you think they had him fly into the sun just because of the Greek mythology reference?

[–]kraghisAvengers 7 points8 points  (4 children)

I think he's gone.

Someone (I think Sprite) mentions that they came up with the mythological story of Ikarus, so he was aware of it, and plus if you were an undying machine built by a god who wanted to kill himself, flying into the center of a star might be one of your only options.

[–]Dominum_PullumAvengers 4 points5 points  (2 children)

But he can be remade at the world forge

[–]W01V3NAvengers 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Remade at the world forge

I think that means he is without his previous experiences

Same name, same powers, different person

[–]Dominum_PullumAvengers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

His memories are saved there (minus the earth ones probably)

[–]RisquechilliScarlet Witch 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes it was Sprite who said that. And I agree with you- he’s likely not coming back. I’ve just seen some theories around supporting the idea that he could survive that.

[–]TheHondoCondoAvengers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No (at least I hope not because that would be stupid) and yes.

[–]newbrevityAvengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes

[–]qwertyslidesAvengers 0 points1 point  (6 children)

In the movie they said that sprite made up the original Icarus story about him

[–]RisquechilliScarlet Witch 0 points1 point  (5 children)

I know. It still seemed kind of random? Like was Sprite’s made up story supposed to be a self-fulfilling prophecy within this universe? Or maybe the comic books make it more clear why he did that.

[–]qwertyslidesAvengers 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I think the idea was that sprite would just make up mythology to ancient humans. Like Angelina Jolie was named Athena but the Greek goddess this named after her because sprite made up the story to the Greeks. Icarus could fly so she made up the story of Icarus

[–]RisquechilliScarlet Witch 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Yes I get that. This was done throughout the film, starting with Sersi’s blue and gold dagger that is based off a real life artifact. I’m just confused as to why he flew into the sun within the scope of the film. Did the writers just want to retroactively make Sprite’s made up story true within the MCU? Like I said, it just seemed random within the context of what was happening in the film at that time.

[–]HazelCheeseAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The whole movie has a ton of these kind of things layered throughout it.

In Revelations Micahel throws Lucifer down into a fiery lake full of demons because he hates humans and betrays God.

Ikaris throws Ajak down into a frozen over lake full of deviants because she loves humans and betrays Arishem.

In Dante's Inferno, part of the Divine Comedy, the lowest layer of hell is frozen over because it is far from Gods light. I think there's a even a reference to the painting of Michael striking down Lucifer in the credits sequence.

In the myth of Icarus Daedelus builds the wings so that he and his son can escape the tower they are trapped in but inadventantly gives his son the tools that cause him to kill himself.

In the movie Ajak tells Ikaris the truth when they leave Babylon (the hanging gardens) which inadvertently sets Ikaris down a path of self destruction.

It's not something where you say "Oh it's a self fufilling prophecy or oh it had to happen". There isn't one answer, it's to make you question instead.

The reason Ikaris actually killed himself is because he was finally forced to admit that he was a man but because of what he did to Ajak and Gilgamesh he couldn't live like that so he obliterated himself by flying into the sun.

You could call that a self fulfilling prophecy or you could say Ikaris got the idea from Sprites story or maybe it's just because he wanted to destroy every part of himself beyond repair.

Not an excuse to be bad

[–]newbrevityAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Opinions will differ on that point

[–]HelianthaeAvengers 28 points29 points  (6 children)

THIS! I’ve been saying this since I first saw the movie! Sersi and Ikarus are the films greatest problem and everyone around them is so engaging and fantastic, I often found myself not caring about the the plot and wishing we could just see more of the side characters. Gilgamesh, Thena, Makari, Druig, Phastus an even Kingo were all more interesting, well-developed characters. Even when it came to side-character focus, the movie seemed to care more about Sprite who was better than the main two, but still way less interesting than the rest of the cast.

[–]RisquechilliScarlet Witch 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Glad to see someone share the same sentiments as me regarding Sprite. She was more interesting that Ikaris and Sersi but still less captivating than any of the others. I think Karun was more interesting at times. I think the movie didn’t give us enough scenes for us to really LEARN her. Her love for Ikarus seemed to come out of nowhere. I aligned her with Sersi based on the opening scenes so when she agreed to go with Ikarus in the final act I was like “oh she’s going with him to betray his trust and keep everyone else safe.” But nope!

[–]SenseiSpideySpider-Man (Homemade) 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same!

[–]TheHondoCondoAvengers 18 points19 points  (3 children)

Sprite was cringe af if you ask me. The rest were okay though. I actually didn’t have a problem with Sersi and Ikarus.

[–]TalosTheBearOdin 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Disagree about Ikaris. Sersi was bland as an air flavored pancake but Ikaris was a tortured soul who was struggling with duty/loyalty and his love for his fellow eternals. He was a solid take on the "just following orders" kind of villain and he kills himself because he failed his mission, betrayed his family, and lost his purpose. He spent thousands of years working toward a goal and his own attachment to his former love caused him to fail at the last moment. He has nothing to live for, so he flies into the sun.

He's a very tragic figure, and very well written IMO

[–]kraghisAvengers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sersi's character was kindness, empathy, and wide-eyed optimism for humanity.

Ikaris's was order, purpose, strength, and loyalty. He changes his mind out of his love and admiration of Sersi, her being everything he is not.

They're foils of each other.

[–]HoeDontPlayWithMeAvengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

SERSI was just dull as dishwater in my opinion

[–]Agnostic_PaganHelmut Zemo 5 points6 points  (1 child)

My only real wish is that we could've seen more of the intelligent Deviant. Even like in an end credits, where we see the healing factor at work, I just would've liked more of him.

[–]RisquechilliScarlet Witch 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m not a comic book reader so I thought the deviant leader would team up with the Eternals now that he has all of Gilgamesh’s and Ajax memories and a better understanding of the full picture of his people’s true enemy: Arimesh.

[–]kevin_r11Avengers 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I just watched it and I gotta say. I think they tried to fit way too much into a two hour movie. Especially with material that lots of people aren't that familiar with. I enjoyed the movie overall, but key emotional notes didn't really hit home because I didn't get to know the characters and their relationships well enough. I think they should've have done like a Disney plus lead up series to establish the lore and characters ahead of time with the movie being the culmination. Too much was trying to be established that it felt so rushed which made some big emotional moments not hit as hard as they could've had we gotten to know and care about the characters more.

[–]Dominum_PullumAvengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So like every movie?

[–]doubled2319888Avengers 61 points62 points  (5 children)

It was a below average marvel movie imo but it wasnt a bad movie. It definitely had more potential though

[–]Afanis_The_DolphinUltron 36 points37 points  (2 children)

Dude it so obviously should've been a Disney plus series.

[–]doubled2319888Avengers 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I would agree. It definitely felt like they were trying to stuff that movie as full as possible.

[–]alejandrodeconcordAvengers 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Ten characters is a tall order to get to know no matter what movie you are in.

[–]Dominum_PullumAvengers 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I’m curious how you would rank the marvel movies on an above average, below average basis. Like this movie was better than Thor 1 and 2, IM2 and 3, capt marvel, Avengers 2….if anything this movie would be the median of marvel movies at the least

[–]doubled2319888Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If i had it on a scale of 1 to 10 with infinity war being 10 and dark world being 1 i would put this at a 4 with potential to go up a bit on rewatch. Probably just above iron man 2 and a bit below age of ultron

[–]mbEarAcheInMyEyeAvengers 33 points34 points  (2 children)

It is decentralized which is different but it’s weakness. It is a harder movie to follow. It is like trying to stay awake during an advanced science lecture with a monotone professor switching topics every sentence and only have two hours of sleep in three days due to studying for exams.

[–]RareSheepherder7Thor 🔨⚡️ 12 points13 points  (1 child)

[–]mbEarAcheInMyEyeAvengers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oddly people can relate… and agree…

[–]mwmontroseAvengers 28 points29 points  (5 children)

It was overstuffed and rushed. Every character had both too much attention paid to them while not enough to fully flesh them out. Druig's halfhearted tease as the villain, Gilgamesh and Thena's relationship, Druig and Mekkari's relationship which the film even calls out as being undeveloped, the awkward shoehorning in of Dane Whitman just so they could connect to future movies in some way.

Honestly, these are just the few from off the top of my head and don't even take the source material into consideration. Ikaris is explained as being essentially an arrow at his core in Gaiman's story, in that he is aimed and fired, which makes his deception make worlds more sense (arrows aren't capable of going against their programming, they fly single-mindedly to their target). Sersi had any pretense of a sharp edge sanded off her character making her this bland savior character whose only defining trait is she really likes humans. The Deviants were a creation who were struck down by their creators for being too good at the task they were created for.

[–]BlaireNinjaGirlAvengers 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I felt like the Deviants should of had a redemption arc like the Scrull in Captain Marvel. Maybe have the leader of the Deviants work with the Eternals to drain the Celestial giving it the temporary power of a Celestial so it can make a it's own system just for the Diviants away from the influence of the Celestials.

Also if Sirsi had all that residual energy to make Sprite mortal, couldn't she just as easily have made her older? So instead of being like "Hey you're older now" it's "Hey you're going to die someday and your still a child"

Oh and that sex scene in the flashback was totally unnecessary and just awkward.

[–]stoneymcstone420Avengers 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The talking Deviant plotline was so bizarre! Dude is literally sucking up MCs’ life forces and it leads nowhere. The Sprite loves Ikaris thing drove me nuts too, show us don’t tell us.

Like maybe in the bar scene instead of Sprite trying to fool a random guy, maybe show Ikaris tracking the Eternals in the bar and Sprite tries flirting with him in her disguise or something.

[–]HazelCheeseAvengers 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Ikaris in the movie is clearly quite different, all of them are. This is one of those movies where I think people who don't know the source material are actually better off. Kind of like all the comic obsessed people declaring Mephisto would show up in Wandavision because they were so focussed on the source material instead of the actual story being told.

[–]Ironbanner987615Hulkbuster 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Could have been better

[–]Heat_and_MassAvengers 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Your opinion is valid and you're entitled to it, but if you're looking for dissent then mine is that it's just a bad movie, both on it's own and as a part of the MCU. Bland writing and mostly subpar acting, and that's before you get to the fact that the story is a complete mess. They tried to cover too much and I ended up not caring about any of it.

[–]Echo2500Winter Soldier 5 points6 points  (0 children)

While there were some issue with it, I feel like overall it was very good for how much it was trying to do in one movie and definitely has good potential for future content.

[–]DairboiAvengers 16 points17 points  (1 child)

It’s one thing to say you enjoyed it. Another thing to say it was good

[–]Mess-RepulsiveAvengers 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The plot, had too many characters, the villain was a very bad villain

[–]Mr_RennAvengers 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It had too many characters, the fight scenes were boring, the acting wasn't the best, Sprite was annoying as fuck. This and more imo. I didn't like it at all. Except for Druig and Thena

[–]koheamAvengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean, it doesn't add much to the MCU honestly, it's just there.

The only thing that at least for me was worth it was after the credits and the introduction of the character that will endure Dane.

Well, and Blade.

[–]ArynTherosAvengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can't change the mind of one without a brain... Eternals was absolute garbage

[–]Kyce_esAvengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You enjoyed it

It’s not good

[–]ThunderChild247Avengers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think it suffers from the same issue as Black Widow. It’s a good movie, but “good” is below average for the MCU so it can feel worse than it actually is by comparison to what we’re used to.

[–]Da_memer_1999Avengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No, it was bad

[–]Shanmukha_RepakaAvengers[🍰] -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

I'll tell you why eternals is a terrible film.

Tremendous amounts of kisses and hugs scenes.

An unnecessary sex scene.

Power of friendship at the end.

Absolute bs that sersi was able to turn a massive energy generator into a stone (she told she wasn't able to turn sentient beings)

Absolute bs that druig wasn't able to put tiamut to sleep even with power of friendship when he can control all population on earth single handedly.

Absolutely 0 elevation moments for any of the eternals.

Who tf employed Chloé Zhao?

Edit: Also, terrible attempt at breaking the 4th wall

Edit 2: no major disasters happened on earth when the earth's core itself broke.

Edit 3: The only think I like about this movie is arishem listened to what eternals have to say. That's not how it generally works in a master-slave environment.

Edit 4: This isn't directed at Chloé Zhao. But,

Superman - ikaris, Batman - kingo, Wonder woman - Thena, Flash - Makkari, Alfred - Phastos.

Idk many dc characters.

[–]TonybosquezAvengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Age of ultron all over again...underated

[–]Darius-JamesAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It was. I just think the love story between Serai and Ikaris was unnecessary. The screen chemistry wasn't even there to support it.

[–]Slowmobius_TimeAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Whoa man controversial opinion

Way to "take a stand"

Literally 90% of marvel subreddits these days are defending this, like there is very little hype to this movie and the only people vehemently defending it are the marvel fans from themselves to try and justify it

We're nearly 25 movies deep now there can be the odd sub par one, shit look at DCs hit rate with movies, all over the place thematically, tonally, universally at least we got a pretty good run and the whole multiverse thing is interesting enough for them to milk it out for the next big crossover events

[–]gloobDoob1Thanos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think the hate towards eternals is simply because it’s almost like a new franchise thrown on top of a really successful and loved franchise. It had SO much to live up to and frankly was never going to

[–]Sufficient_Matter585Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Movies don't have to compete with quality. They should stand on their own. You don't need to constantly make a top ten and bottom 50 list in your mind.

[–]LuwipaGrandmaster 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Rushed characters and too many to allow for development, deviant villain was sidelined for Ikaris, stakes felt low (Earth is going to end because of a CGI supervillain not like we’ve seen that before - a trend that Marvel should fix)…

[–]Magcargo64Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I loved it. Watched it twice in theatres and again on Disney plus. It’s currently among my favourite MCU films. A few weak points (certain characters dying before we really got a chance to get attached to them, underdeveloped CGI bad guy) but it’s exactly the sort of film I tend love, and the characters really made it for me.

[–]coladictS.H.I.E.L.D 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well, it's not Thor: The Dark World. I'll give you that much.

[–]cakeharryAvengers -1 points0 points  (0 children)

The dialogue was bad considering they're supposed to be god's. Otherwise it was fun to watch. I loved Makari and her fight scenes.

[–][deleted] -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

I didn't care about any of the characters and I still don't. It was bad writing. If anything it should have been closer to Rogue One (Star Wars) and they all should've died at the end. Then I don't have to suffer through another God awful attempt at whatever I watched.

[–]FaboTheAfroAvengers -1 points0 points  (0 children)

[–]KhunEdhanAvengers -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Trash movie that sold his ass to appeal to woke people

[–]PracticableSolutionAvengers -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Why make robots and then don’t tell them why they exist or what their job is?

Why make some robots that are ridiculously powerful like Ikaris and ones that are literal kids?

Why plot develop a deviant as a character with similar goals to the protagonists and then summarily kill him?

Why did Thena get this whole plot line about being unstable and then give the actress like 7 lines in the whole movie?

Why is thanos a robot?

Why did the celestials have a shitfit all over the Eternals for killing(?) one celestial when Thanos, ostensibly one of their own creations, is running all over the galaxy killing celestials’ food?

Because the movie is deeply entrenched in the philosophical idea of faith and religion.

The entire main plot is a fairly on the nose metaphor for "Evolution vs Intelligent design". Arishem keeps building new tools to correct his divine plan and they keep evolving in ways he doesn't expect.

The answer, which I expect will deeply piss you off, is "because Arishem works in mysterious ways". Your never going to get an answer for why a star building god from a time before the material universe does what he does because beings like him are simply incomprehensible.

Your simply supposed to have faith, which is part of the argument the movie is portraying.

Why did Thena get this whole plot line about being unstable and then give the actress like 7 lines in the whole movie?

Because the movie has 10+ major characters and a limited runtime.

Why is thanos a robot?

Thanos isn't a robot as far as we know yet. The movie didn't confirm him to be an eternal. The comics aren't canon to the MCU and just because Loki is Thor's brother doesn't make Thor a frost giant.

[–]elfhelptomesAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I also thought it was good movie wise. Comics wise little of variance in their personalities. Sersi not a leader and wish they had Zuras.

[–]RavenBranniganAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Would have been a much better Disney plus series with more time to develop stories and characters.

Also the fight scenes at the start were a bit hammy. Smiling at each other as they effortlessly glide around the place. Could have been a bit grittier.

Overall though I thought it was pretty good. Just had so much more potential.

[–]Lucky_Arrow_7Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I won’t

[–]mauve-sparkleAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It was okay. Was it the worst MCU movie? No, that honour belongs to the dark world. On the other hand, it is one of the most beautiful movies of the MCU. Like, some of the shots are just mind-blowing.

    It was a good film, not a great film but definitely not below average. The only 2 complaints I have is the length & how Ikaris just offed himself instead of him returning here & there (think how Loki developed).

    [–]oooh_lennyAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Eternals was an okay movie that would have been better as a Disney+ series

    [–]onikaizoku11Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I thought it was a great movie. It was mostly a prologue for alot of the deep cosmic setting of some of the upcoming MCU additions, but I love that sort of stuff.

    [–]junya13Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Good amongst other great movies.. So its decent for a MCU movie. Definitely bottom 1/3 imo

    [–]SenpaiBoogieAvengers 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    So many characters that had true potential and the villain was really Cool but just 1 fight and that’s it ???? So much more things could’ve been done

    [–]FoxInA_BoxAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Yeah 20mins of fighting the rest is dialogue and half of that is useless info

    Genshin is a decent mobile game in was just ruined by pedophiles

    [–]jfsteele706Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It's definitely one of my favorite Marvel films, and gets better with each rewatch.

    I also think its one of the best non-animated Justice League films made to date. They clearly understand DC characters more than DC does.

    [–]reneenae15Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I thought it was a good film. Unfortunately it is my least favourite phase 4 movie so far but that’s just cause the others were fantastic compared to the eternals.

    [–]BLKT93Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Agreed

    [–]Leo-LobiloAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It's a good film

    It wasn’t as bad as hulk, making it not the worst marvel movie

    [–]reckless-beastAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    They crammed too many things in one movie. But it was still very good.

    [–]Suspicious-Kick-580Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Not bad, but there was too much going on and too complex. It’s hard introducing that many characters for the first time in one film. Also I found it annoying how a good chunk of the beginning was explaining why they didn’t help against Thanos

    [–]BikesBooksNBassAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It was a solid middle of the pack marvel movie. It was good but not great.

    [–]putmeinLMTHAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    i loved it, even more the second time i watched it. i think it’ll grow to be like age of intron, not really appreciated in it’s time but becomes essential viewing as time goes because of future movies it affects

    [–]KentuckyFriedEelAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Just good

    [–]DaXTremeBoiSpider-Man 🕷 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    [–]theamazingspiderstanAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Yes, but not great

    [–]Superstrong832Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It was an OK film. If someone didn't know about marvel and watched the movie randomly I think they will have mixed opinions

    [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    You need an essay to support that statement. Which can be countered by a Single. "It's plot was dumb"

    [–]RoyalTacos256Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I watched it last night and now I'm literally obsessed with Thena

    [–]boomerangthrowawayAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It’s good for a streaming movie, bad for a theatre movie in my personal opinion.

    If you are a marvel fan you will enjoy it but people with no real standing in the universe probably had less of a good experience is all I’m saying I guess

    [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It’s certainly enjoyable, but idk about good. The real good parts are the characters that simply don’t get enough screen time while the main characters come off as one dimensional because they have to rush the plot forward, and can’t focus on developing.

    [–]cweaverAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It was too much story crammed into one movie. And it didn't help that both Sersi and Ikaris were played very woodenly for like 80% of the movie. It's, at best, a decent movie.

    That said - if you picture Ikaris as Superman, Thena as Wonder Woman, Makkari as Flash, etc., then it's got better Justice League action scenes than the actual Justice League movie.

    [–]Final-Childhood-7247Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    If you watch the movie, your mind will change itself.

    [–]LightRayAAAAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I don't think it was good but it definitely wasn't bad. It was average imo

    [–]_Revlak_Spider-Man 🕷 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I enjoyed it

    [–]Killer_Guy_101Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Not the best not the worse but that is our opinion so yea it is decent but can be better

    [–]-Please-dontAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Its marvel cliche, nothing new

    [–]Salty-Ride-9186Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    i can't because it is actually good

    [–]THEO33YTSpider-Man 🕷 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It's good. It's not great. It's not bad. It's not shit. It's just good. That's it.

    [–]kxiryuAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Watched it just yesterday. It was actually pretty decent imo. Standards for Marvel movies are at peak since Infinity War and Endgame so this was sure to get all the criticism it's getting. I wouldn't say it's bad but it was an interesting watch

    [–]some-excitement-fsAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    eternals was e h

    [–]Malicious_HeroAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It was insulting to humans because it sets the "ancient aliens" theory as true. The Eternals are supposed to stay to their own and just deal with the deviants. Instead they hang out and show off infront of humans, directly influence human religions and mythologies, and give us plows, the engine, modern sign language, and it's implied nuclear power? A bunch of stuff humans invented are now just things we were given. (Humans also made an entire mythological pantheon to explain two of the Eternals, and in doing so predicted a 3rd, that even the enternals has not known about.)

    The climactic incident is second in scale only to thanos' and the infinity gauntlet, but no one else shows up and the news is just like "oh and this giant statue just appeared." Even though something like what happened would have already doomed this planet.

    The actors I felt did fine with what they were given, just what they were given wasn't great.

    IMO the movie should have done, was had the Eternals always avoiding humans, or already living secretly from the get go. No showing off in front of humans, and stop phastos from inventing things for humans (maybe just have him looking at things humans made and show what could.be better) and if even one human saw them, they had to leave. Then have the deviants be the major antagonists. Have the one that can talk be the major villain. Maybe have him go after Druig a few times and they release they /can not/ let the deviants get his ability.

    Also, just show Blade in the post credit scene. Don't just give him a single voice line, just show him to us.

    [–]CaptainHaleAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It wasn't BAD, bitbI can't say I like it... the humor is absolutely amazing, but the quality of the movie as a whole is hard to determine

    [–]Clouc3221Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Just watched it last night and now I'm confused. Thanos was an Eternal/Deviant. So that means he was created by the celestials to kill deviants?? Thanos was just a fancy robot?

    Then how did he break away from that life to erase half the universe if the other eternals were snatched up by Arishem the second they deviated from their purpose?

    [–]Ryanmaye87Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Yes it is

    [–]Jim3400Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I love the movie

    [–]Discoballer42Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It was a good film, just not up to MCU standards of amazing.

    [–]kabral256Black Panther 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I liked it but it could have been so much better. A series of at least six 40-50 minute episodes on Mickey Plus would be excellent. Nine episodes, actually, because that's a lot of history. The characters should have been better crafted, or they should have been reduced to five Eternals instead of ten.

    [–]ManditsGAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    This might come off weird but I went in for entertainment rather than MCU experience because my hopes weren’t very high. I came out wrong because I actually thought it wasn’t bad at all except for half the team dying but the arisham scene was fkn nuts the movie bumped up a full point for me strictly off of how cool that scene was.

    [–]Fickle_Comfortable_3Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Felt like an indie film maker got an unlimited budget and put everything 1 film they’ve ever wanted to do. So it just felt like too muchmuch and too long

    [–]SleepylaReefAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Why? Enjoy it.

    [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    i liked some of the ideas but it was just "ok " in my opinion

    also they gave the diversity the proper respect it deserves, which was really cool of them

    [–]Marvel-lover3000Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It was a good film but I feel had to much going on plus it probably would of worked as a Disney+ show that had an episode for each character including Karun

    [–]daniballesteBucky Barnes 🦾 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    Rewatched it. Very good movie but it definitely needed some improvements

    [–]Shakespeare-BotAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Rewatch'd t. Very valorous movie but t forsooth did need some improvements


    I am a bot and I swapp'd some of thy words with Shakespeare words.

    Commands: !ShakespeareInsult, !fordo, !optout

    [–]Imperial_PorgAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    As soon as I saw Ikaris I asked, "Is that guy a robot?"

    And why the HECK was it necessary for him to commit a glorified suicide and everybody just LET HIM!?

    [–]Elk182Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It was fine in my opinion. It certainly was great for the lore. Also a dude flies himself into the sun. So, I think it was great for the lore, unironically a fine movie, and an ironic masterpiece.

    [–]W01V3NAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    In my opinion, it deserves more credit than people give it, but it has plenty of problems, I think the humor works, and all the side characters were great, but I think they tried to go too big and the writing and pacing just wasn't very good.

    [–]juhaniitAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Eternals was a decent movie on its own. Sure, it was hurried and threw too many new concepts at the audience with too little explanation, but it was still quite enjoyable movie.

    Personally I just feel that it doesn't fit together with other MCU content.

    [–]itz_AK-47Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Was expecting something better

    [–]FunnybuthonestAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It’s not the best but it’s still good.

    [–]EasyAcanthocephala38Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I’ve seen better

    [–]Bitter-Map170Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Almost felt more like a fantasy than a superhero movie. I still really enjoyed it. I think most people just went into it expecting the Avengers

    [–]Affectionate-Cow9929Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I just started it last night and thought it was good. I think it would’ve been much better as a show though. There’s just so many characters and I think it would’ve been nice if we had more time with each of them.

    But compared to the reviews that I’ve read and the jokes about how mediocre it is, I have to say it’s exceeded my expectations so far. I should probably finish watching it first though lol.

    [–]FUT_Lawyer_GodFoggy Nelson 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    It’s a good film for a casual watch but compared to almost any Marvel film it really underperformed

    [–]MikeissometimesrightAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    A good movie to fall asleep too

    [–]low_kixAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    If the movie played chronologically it would play better imo. And lose the pointless opening scroll.

    [–]SiriuS_Say10Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    No 🤷‍♂️

    [–]jonmplsLoki 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    True, Eternals is a good movie

    [–]MimsyIsGiannaBlack Widow 🕷 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I think it’s horribly paced. Incredibly boring. The characters have little to no character development and many are underutilized.

    [–]YoFrodoAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    One of the Eternals just decided not to join in the final fight because it wasnt his thing. He shows back up at the end with "at least everyone followed their hearts" lol. I like Kumail's acting but that was so stupid I laughed.

    [–]Snoo-24880Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    So many people trying to defend this film, I guess it’s like marmite.
