While marred by less-than-stellar writing, and an atrociously crafted villain that looked like it came out of 2002’s Scorpion King — it still has it where it counts; great entertaining characters, propelled by entertaining action.
This 6th outing for Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange felt somewhat light despite the compelling arc that he has in the film. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Olsen puts on a clinic with her performance as the Scarlet Witch — becoming the beating heart of the movie despite the character’s descent into darkness.
Eternals is massive in scope yet strikingly personal with its characters. It expands the MCU to cosmic depths that we have not seen before.
Villain-deficiencies aside, while Black Widow was never made with the intention be groundbreaking – it is more than worthy as a solo outing for Natasha Romanoff.
