Eternals Is Currently Marvel’s Lowest-Rated MCU Movie
By Mia Johnson
For years, Marvel has been on a hot streak with its films, which tend to receive high scores from review aggregation sites like Rotten Tomatoes. But that momentum has officially come to an end now that reviews for Marvel’s Eternals have begun rolling in.
As of this publishing, the critics’ score for Eternals on Rotten Tomatoes stands at 57 percent, which classifies it as "Rotten." As Entertainment Weekly points out, that score puts the film even lower than 2014's Thor: The Dark World, a film that has a 66 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and was the company's previous low point (though it stayed in "Fresh" territory). For reference, the current Eternals score is far closer to Man of Steel's 56 percent from 2013.
In its "Critical Consensus," Rotten Tomatoes sums up the movie's reviews by saying, "An ambitious superhero epic that soars as often as it strains, Eternals takes the MCU in intriguing—and occasionally confounding—new directions."
If poor reviews don't deter you, you can see Marvel's Eternals in theaters on November 5.
