Warning: this review may contain some spoilers
This movie follows the story of ten Eternals (immortal beings with superpowers), who were sent to earth around seven thousand years ago by the Celestial Arishem to protect the earth from deviants. They have to reunite because the deviants have returned to earth. They are told by Arishem that they cannot interfere with any human conflict except for the deviants which causes some fights between the eternals.
I really enjoyed the characters and a lot of them were pretty funny. I also liked the family-like dynamic between the Eternals. I liked the cast too and saw a few people I recognized including Harry Styles but he didn’t have much screen time, and didn’t appear until the post credit scene.
The costumes were really well made, and I thought it was cool how each of the Eternals’ outfits was different from each other’s. The special effects were really cool and looked really realistic. The different settings were also really interesting to see.
There were a lot of plot twists throughout the film and a lot of betrayal between the Eternals which made the movie even more interesting. A few characters that I liked a lot died throughout the movie which was pretty sad.
I found it refreshing that for this movie you didn’t need any prior knowledge of the Avengers or Marvel to understand it.
One tip I have is to make sure you stay all the way through the movie credits because there were two different post credit scenes that answered a few of my questions after the cliffhanger ending.
I really enjoyed this movie and would recommend it to Marvel fans or fans of adventure/action movies. Overall, I would give it a 8.5/10 rating.
At this time, the only place you can see ‘Eternals’ is in theaters.
