Director: Chloé Zhao
Writers: Chloé Zhao, Patrick Burleigh, Ryan Firpo

The Eternals is a 2021 superhero film directed by Chloé Zhao and produced by Marvel Studios. The movie is based on the Marvel Comics characters of the same name and features an ensemble cast, including Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Gemma Chan, Kit Harington, and Salma Hayek.

The plot of The Eternals revolves around a group of powerful beings, known as the Eternals, who have been living among humans for thousands of years. They have been tasked with protecting Earth from the Deviants, their ancient enemies. However, when a new threat emerges, the Eternals must come together to save humanity from destruction.

One of the strongest aspects of the movie is the characterization of the Eternals. Each character has a unique backstory, personality, and superpower, which makes them stand out from one another. The film also tackles several complex themes, including family, love, loss, and sacrifice.

The visual effects in The Eternals are stunning, particularly the scenes set in space and those that showcase the Eternals’ superpowers. The cinematography is also impressive, with stunning landscapes and beautiful shots of the characters in action.

However, the film’s pacing is a bit slow at times, which may not appeal to some viewers. Additionally, some of the characters are not as fully developed as others, which makes it difficult to invest in their storylines.

Overall, The Eternals is a solid addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is visually stunning, and the cast delivers strong performances. While it may not be as action-packed as other Marvel films, it makes up for it with its thoughtful themes and character development. Fans of the superhero genre will not be disappointed.
