Find the Excitement of ‘Eternals’ Movie Online on Gomovies
Did you still remember about the world as we know it has come to an end last year on Gomovies? Right, when Thanos destroyed humanity by snapping his fingers, leaving the door open for future superheroes and parallel universes to decide how to preserve whatever else is left on the blue world. The fight in Eternals isn’t so much about resurrecting life on Earth as it is about protecting it from the wicked powers known as Deviants. Unlike The Avengers and what they started out to do, the Eternals’ 10-member team has only one goal: to defend humanity and guide its progress. The plot, however, is not as straightforward as it appears on paper.
Salma Hayek stars as Ajak, the spiritual leader of the Eternals, and the film features the largest ensemble cast assembled post-Avengers. She is the all-seeing Oracle who leads and protects her fellow superheroes from harm. They do, however, stray.
Thena, played by Angelina Jolie, is the most complex and evil of the Eternals. What makes her intriguing is that she is fighting her own psyche rather than the terrible Deviants. Ikaris, the group’s Alpha, is played by Richard Madden, while Sprite, a woman trapped in a girl’s body, is played by Lia McHugh. Kingo (Kumail Nanjiani), Gilgamesh (Don Lee), Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry), Makkari (Lauren Ridloff), Druig (Barry Keoghan), and Sersi (Gemma Chan) are the other Eternals, who add comedic relief, love plots, and variety to this Marvel adventure that also live at 123Movies Gomovies.
To beginning with, Eternals has a runtime of over two and a half hours, coming in second only to Avengers: Endgame’s nearly three-hour duration. The problem isn’t so much the length as it is director Chloe Zhao’s attempt to cram as many background stories and subplots as possible into the film in order to give the A-list star ensemble their due. As a result, certain characters get more time on screen than others, despite their lack of charisma. Sersi and Ikaris are seen brooding about their failed love, while Makkari and Phastos are given insufficient screen time to tell us about their prior lives.
Isn’t Eternals as good as The Avengers?
Eternals is visually amazing. There is imagery in every frame, and the action scenes, particularly the beginning montage, are beautifully orchestrated. However, the picture falls short when it comes to developing interesting characters and storylines that you can get invested in.
Chloe Zhao’s attempt to check the boxes of diversity and inclusion seems a little forced. Yes, we support a homosexual superhero, and it’s about time LGBTQ inclusion in an MCU film feels natural, but Phastos’ love story with his partner is underutilized.
Eternals tries to be something but falls short of being nothing. The similarities to the Avengers only add to the misery. There are, however, a few passing nods to the Avengers, and you can’t help but smile whenever you hear a familiar name.
If Eternals had spent as much time in the writing room as it did in the VFX studio, it could have worked. Eternals isn’t the Avengers for Marvel fans, but if you don’t go in with too high expectations, you might have a good time. The Eternals have a superhero army, but none of them are worth cheering for. Perhaps next time? You must stay tune at Gomovies to know the update.
