‘Eternal’ Reviews: Exciting, giving what you may not have watched before but short of breezy fun of MCU’s best movies

Eternals, the latest movie from the Marvel universe, starring A-list casts – Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kit Harington, Angelina Jolie, and Salma Hayek. has received mixed reviews, with critics calling it over-aspiring yet enlightened.
The Guardian gave Eternals two stars, calling it “magic hour meets PowerPoint”. The paper’s critic Steve Rose said that “there’s just too much going on: it’s all headed towards yet another ‘race against time to stop the really bad thing happening’ climax”.
According to Forbes, Eternals always seemed like a bit of a risk, as even with an A-list cast, they weren’t exactly the most exciting or interesting characters to adapt into a film for the MCU.
With 41 reviews, it’s sitting at 71% on Rotten Tomatoes. Fine for a normal film, very low for an MCU film, makes it the third-lowest MCU film of all time out of 26 total, and generally speaking, the more reviews come in, the further these kinds of scores tend to drop.
Eternals focusing on relatively unknown heroes isn’t really an excuse for the low score. Both Shang-Chi and Guardians of the Galaxy are inside the top 10, and at the time, both were very unknown by general audiences.
About MCU’s Movie ‘Eternal’ Final Trailer
Eternals is about the titular group of 10 gods who join forces to protect Earth from “Perverts”.
In his review, Kevin Maher of the Times also selected two stars, stating that the film is a story of “navel-looking superheroes looking for a decent script.”
He wrote: “There is a strange self-sabotaging energy at the heart of this blockbuster.”
Maher noted, however, how the film attempted to show a more diverse mix of superheroes on screen.
It is the first major studio film by Chloé Zhao, who won the best director Oscar earlier this year for Nomadland.

2.5 hrs or more Eternals becomes the second-longest in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) Movie After Avengers: Endgame
Director and screenwriter Chloé Zhao revealed Eternals will be the second longest-running film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)
Eternals will be the second longest-running film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, director and screenwriter Chloé Zhao revealed. While we don’t have exact showtimes yet, it does give us stadium numbers. In a new interview, the 39-year-old Chinese-American director confirmed that Eternals will last just over two and a half hours. This will make Eternals the second, longer MCU chapter. After all, only one chapter of the MCU lasts more than two and a half hours – it’s called Avengers: Endgame and has hit the three-hour mark. Avengers: Infinity War came very close, at 149 minutes.
Eternals is completely standalone, with Zhao noting that all viewers need to know is the plot of Infinity War and Endgame: “half the universe disappears and [then] comes back’’
MCU Movies don’t usually run more than 150 minutes
It is quite unusual for a standalone Marvel movie to be longer than 150 minutes. The longest of them is Captain America: Civil War at 147 minutes, and that’s because it was an Avengers mini-movie, to be honest. In fact, The Avengers (143) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (141) were shorter. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, at 137 minutes, is next. This is followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier (136), Black Panther (134), Black Widow (134), SpiderMan: Homecoming (133), ShangChi, Iron Man 3 (131), Thor: Ragnarok (130), and SpiderMan: Far from home (129). Everything else is about two hours or less.
Why is Eternals over two-and-a-half hours?
Chloe Zhao said that Eternals runs over two-and-a-half hours and probably more because it’s ten characters, the Celestials, and 7,000 years, and there’s a lot going on.
The 10 Characters and the Celestials in Eternals
Who are these 10 characters in Eternals?
Eternals follows the titular immortal beings who were created by the Celestials — we met one Celestial in StarLord`s father Ego in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 — and draw their superpowers from cosmic energy. They have been living secretly on Earth for over 7,000 years. There`s Gemma Chan as the empathetic Sersi, Richard Madden as Ikaris who can fly and shoot beams out of his eyes, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo who can shoot projectiles out of his hands and is living as a famous Bollywood star, Lia McHugh as Sprite who can conjure illusions, and Brian Tyree Henry as weapons and tech inventor Phastos who`s the first gay MCU superhero. We also have Lauren Ridloff as superfast Makkari who is the first deaf superhero from the MCU, Barry Keoghan as the mind manipulator Druig, Don Lee as Gilgamesh – the strongest of the Eternals, Salma Hayek as spiritual leader of the healing Immortals, and Angelina Jolie as Thena’s elite warrior who can make all kinds of weapons from cosmic.
What happens in the film will have huge implications on the future
Chloe Zhao said that what happens in this film will have huge implications on the future.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has claimed that Eternals will redefine the MCU. To that, Zhao said: “I think a big part of it is that audiences will be discovering the origin of the MCU through the mythology of the Celestials. I think by the end of the film, we will have a new understanding of planet Earth`s relationship with the cosmos, and also with its own inhabitants. But in that sense, it would have a huge effect on the future of the MCU.”
