Although these comments should always be taken with a grain of salt (the initial reactions to Wonder Woman 1984 were euphoric for example …), in general, the American bloggers and journalists authorized to attend the screening – and invited to speak about it immediately after on Twitter – praised the work of the filmmaker.

Chloe zhao, who arrives in the world of blockbusters, has obviously succeeded in putting “her touch, moving and thoughtful. “She made The Eternals a spectacularly weird and rich film, set apart from everything else.

Chloe zhao and his team are applauded for having “deliver an evocative, emotional and extraordinarily epic superhero film, aided by the naturalism of Ben Davis’ photo, which succeeds in highlighting the humanity of the characters. “

“Epic“is the other qualifier that comes up often. “In every sense of the word. It’s a more massive story and at the same time more down-to-earth than anything that has ever been done in the MCU.” A film also described as “dense“, who is “at its best when the focus is on Eternals recreating their family – humor and passion when fighting for each other“. The most enthusiastic even go so far as to talk about”masterpiece“. A blockbuster “Full of adrenaline from the start, but also full of heart and humor! A nod to the comics while it was a totally unique story. And then the post-credits scenes will just turn the whole franchise upside down!”
