It seems as though audiences are enjoying Marvel’s Eternals much more than the critics did, at least, according to Rotten Tomatoes.
It’s been revealed that Marvel’s Eternals Rotten Tomatoes’ audience score is at 86% based on over 1000 fan reviews.
When the movie was released critic scores came in at 49% from 241 reviews.
That’s not very good at all, especially for a Marvel movie.
Marvel films tend to do very well with critics, and it looks like they didn’t care for Eternals all that much.
But, why do these critics not like Chloe Zhao’s Eternals?
Here’s what some of the critics had to say about the movie:
Fanboys of the Universe says Eternals is “just another step in the MCU timeline”.
The Boston Globe said the films has “lots (and lots) of exposition, which does little for understanding and even less for pacing.”
Eternals is a “rambling and repetitive” wrote the Wall Street Journal.
Eternals’ audience score on Rotten Tomatoes is higher than the critics score
As for the audience score’s concerned, it seems as though they were much happier with the film.
One fan wrote: “This was a great stand-alone movie. Better than half of the marvel stand-alone movies.”
Another viewer said: “good action. Good setup for bigger things that are going to be happening in the future of mcu and the big reveal in end credits that you will want to see live.”
Another viewer added: “Enough action to keep me excited and enough story to make me care about out [sic] heroes.”
Finally, another fan said: “It felt like different in a good way! Breath of fresh air for Marvel!”
