Already the reactions that populated the social networks after the first events, they weren’t too good. Now the specialized press is very comfortable beating ‘Morbius’, film that does not even qualify as ‘entertaining’ (rather the opposite), and whose script fits the worst part. In general, the reviews are quite negative, with a 20% on Rotten Tomatoes as a starting point, and some comments that save the interpretation of Jared Leto by the hair (never better said).
“Leto certainly rocks behind that rock star mane, but the movie has very little to distinguish it from the second-tier Marvel packand it ends up being more of the same”advances David Rooney in The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s a shame this character introduction takes itself too seriously to be amused by the chaos, despite the potential for Smith’s diabolical twist, which could have left for a fun interplay between the antagonists. Arjona carries himself with confidence, but his character also gets a bit lost in the carnage.”.
For his part, Alonso Duralde of The Wrap, points out that screenwriters Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless “they are not overly interested in anything other than the usual development of a universe”something Kate Erbland of IndieWire agrees with, adding that “even the most basic elements of the film are incomprehensible. Leto, notorious for the way he immerses himself in his work, had little to scratch here, so his Michael ends up being confusing and very boring.”. Beyond the confusion, Chris Evangelista of Film directly states that “‘Morbius’ invites you to take a nap”. “There’s no energy in the movie, nothing, not even a spark, and everyone is behaving like they’re coming out of a cold. ‘Venom’ isn’t what I’d call a good movie, but it wasn’t boring at all.“.
And in this line, when it comes to highlighting how little this film calls out, Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian is the one who compares the Sony feature film with a screensaver the most graphically. “Sadly his superpower is disconcertingly boring. Its story is presented with the same dramatic development of a screensaver And then it ends, ushering in two very anticlimactic post-credits scenes intended to introduce more future attractions in the very corporate Spider-Man universe”.
For some (few) it is saved
“The curious fun offered by Daniel Espinosa’s (director) film stems from how he embraces the gothic mythology that inspired it. Morbius eventually turns into a messy succession of fights, as it should, but for much of its run it’s a stylish story. and with an intriguing tone about a man trying to thwart mortality”says Richard Lawson breaking a spear in favor of ‘Morbius’ in Vanity Fair.
Leah Greenblatt of Entertainment Weekly is not so enthusiastic, but it also saves that gothic touch mentioned by Lawson assuring that the film “cleverly mixes violence with a gothic atmosphere and camp vibe which is pleasant until the end“all despite “the logic and flow of the plot usually ends up butchered and becoming collateral damage“.
