Morbius, The doctor who releases a terrifying evil
Morbius a new marvel legend arrives is what the movie theater banners say. The critics and user reviews did not scare me to watch the movie, as I find that you should always check it out for yourself. Generally speaking, people have a broad variety of opinions and standards, and it's quite difficult for you as a specific individual to match those same opinions and standards. Therefore, it's highly unlikely that your opinion of a movie is going to turn out exactly the same as some random online reviewer. You do not know this person, you do not know their norms and values or what kind of genres they find their joy in. So that's why I'm telling you go watch the movie, decide for yourself. I'm just here to give an unfiltered opinion.
The movie starts off with biochemist Doctor Michael Morbius played by (Jared Leto) who did a wonderful job playing this mysterious character. Doctor Morbius is suffering from a very rare blood disease. This first movie completely revolves around the doctor curing himself and his friend Milo played by (Matt Smith) from this rare blood disease. In the past he has already created artificial blood that helped many thousands, maybe millions of people. But he had yet had to find a cure for himself, eventually he thinks to have discovered a cure, but he inadvertently infects himself with a form of vampirism instead. Morbius displays glimmers of life for the all-too-commonplace genre before it spirals out of control. The movie's anti-hero approach is surprisingly authentic, turning Michael into a well-intentioned scientist obsessed by his disastrous experiment. Seeing a protagonist struggle with his abilities rather than being uplifted by them gives a different perspective to see enjoy on the big screens.
The movie did have to endure quite a bit of criticism, especially about the CGI and their “murky” looks. I found this dark, mysterious approach quite fitting and genuinely cool looking. The in and out fading of the robes and apparel with red purple trails looked superb in my opinion. The present day public and critics are so filled up with the over created political correct movies that they don't see an actual good movie without all this nonsense for what it is. Many movies and series have been wrecked because of political standards interfering. This movie actually shed some bright light on screen and shows a good example of what a movie looks like without a political force driving behind it.
Although this first build up movie was quite interesting and cool, the plot was also quite a predictable one. But in spite of that, it didn't affect the quality and the lore the movie brought. At this point in time the bad reviews are usually off the charts even for new movies and startups, the critics do not leave room for “error”. I think if the opportunity arises, the next movie will better it's predecessor, and we get a more in depth look at our new anti-hero and his soon-to-be deuteragonist.
Overall speaking, I highly enjoyed this movie, and it was actually a lot better than I expected based on the user and critic's reviews (no spoilers). Even though, I went into the theaters with an open mind. Heck, even some of my close friends didn't seem to like the movie, but I still did. I'm looking forward to the next movie in line and hope they keep up they no nonsense approach. As always with Marvel movies, stay until after the credit scenes.
