Oggi ha fatto il suo debutto nelle sale cinematografiche italiane The Marvels (che uscirà venerdì in America) ed in nottata è scaduto l’embargo per i commenti della stampa, che sono generalmente positive. Molti giornalisti sono rimasti soddisfatti dal lavoro della regista Nia DaCosta, soprattutto per quanto riguarda le scene d’azione (e musical), la dinamica tra le tre protagoniste – che regala anche momenti intensi ed a volte teneri – e l’umorismo.
Vengono inoltre lodate le interpretazioni delle tre attrici, sopratutto di Iman Vellani (Ms. Marvel), che è “destinata a brillare nel MCU“.
Nonostante i pregi, alcuni giornalisti hanno criticato la storia principale e la frenesia con cui viene raccontata non ha convinto tutti, in quanto alcune scene non si collegano in modo fluido l’un l’altra ed erano necessari alcuni approfondimenti che invece mancano. Inoltre, la villain (interpretato da Zawe Ashton) non ha convinto appieno la critica.
Inoltre, proprio come anticipato dai trailer, si tratta di un film pesantemente connesso alla storia principale dell’Universo Cinematografico Marvel ed al Multiverso, con una scena post-credit che ha lasciato a bocca aperta gli spettatori.
Di seguito alcuni commenti positivi e negativi:
Nia DaCosta’s #TheMarvels is a great time at the movies! It’s well paced & full of frantic, hilarious energy. I even liked it more than 2019’s #CaptainMarvel. This thing moves! The location-swap action is a blast & the end credits scene is 😱 . I’m definitely a fan.
—This film is so much fun and exactly what a comic book movie should be. It’s funny, silly, short and sweet, action-packed. Loved the cosmic sci-fi moments. Plenty of MCU interconnectivity without being overbearing.
#TheMarvels worked for me. Female Avengers team-up movie packs in chuckles, cats, hairballs, and musical sequences. Much more episodic than a cinematic endeavor, but I think that's its greatest strength. Great post-credits. Loved my leading lady trio. Great visual effects. Jersey… pic.twitter.com/uWk9w4M4Og
We just saw #TheMarvels – full review tomorrow, but it’s one of the most surprising movies of the year, bringing fresh air to the MCU, as well as some jaw dropping moments that will have audiences screaming. Don’t sleep on this movie! – Connor Webber/Attractions Magazine pic.twitter.com/C20wDEXEUu
#TheMarvels is the most fun I’ve had watching a superhero movie in a while! It’s hilarious, action-packed & full of girl power. Kamala was a stand out & so many moments surprised me. There was a great balance of the team, while dropping shocking bombs that will change EVERYTHING. pic.twitter.com/Zj6Lbc5xKn
With #TheMarvels, Nia DaCosta brings a much-needed shot in the arm the MCU's needed for a long time. The film's brevity is its biggest superpower, stripping back to basics with amazing chemistry between leads (Vellani's a STAR) and creative action without world-building baggage. pic.twitter.com/2GfPU3F4QQ
#THEMARVELS is short, sweet, and a hell of a lot of fun. The main trio is a blast together and it's great to have action sequences that are exciting again. Probably the most charmed I've been by a MCU film since No Way Home, and I can't wait to see what this film leads to… pic.twitter.com/BA8lkRCjU8
#TheMarvels is so much fun, action-packed goodness, but genuinely hilarious and exciting to watch from start to finish. I love my girls so much and seeing them fight all three together truly is so special. Higher, further, faster baby! pic.twitter.com/epEroO2ClU
Nia DaCosta’s #TheMarvels is a delight! The power-swapping plot is cool & all, but the real fun comes from the stellar chemistry between Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris & Iman Vellani. Low stakes aside, it delivers some of Marvel’s best action & comedy to date! See it with a crowd 👀 pic.twitter.com/Qz8k9j6nAm
it’s no secret i adore captain marvel and wandavision, so #TheMarvels is something i knew I’d have fun with. brie larson, teyonah parris, and iman vellani’s chemistry made this one for me — they had superb comedic timing together but also beautifully worked in the touching scenes pic.twitter.com/BRYh2fcaDm
#TheMarvels flies higher, further and faster than the first movie! Iman Vellani, take a bow. Easily the most fun I've had watching a Marvel movie since Spider-Man: No Way Home. pic.twitter.com/labCXnNEta
#TheMarvels is a good time at the movies. Definitely not everything works, and there are two cringe-inducing sequences that threaten to derail the whole thing. BUT DeCosta can direct action sequences, it’s never boring, and the leads are all very good. 👍 pic.twitter.com/sWmy19NAum
I went into #TheMarvels with extremely low expectations and it wasn't half bad. Iman Villani and Teyonah Parris are easily the highlights. Love their chemistry with Brie Larson. Unfortunately, the story is a huge mess with an underutilized villain and an underwhelming finale. pic.twitter.com/71xYG2B3NJ
In a year that gave us the big low of Quantumania and the high of GotG 3, #TheMarvels is a solid middle of the path, entertaining MCU installment. Fun and funny and built around a likable team dynamic though not special enough to overcome many of those now superhero cynical. pic.twitter.com/Izb8iEaPqs
