Movie Review: Morbius

By: Kristina Mertz

Marvel’s latest film added to the MCU consists of Morbius, starring Jared Leto, Michael Keaton, Matt Smith, and Adria Arjona. The film was directed by Daniel Espinosa and received a rating of 16% according to Rotten Tomatoes and a 5.2 on IMDB. Although the film wasn’t met with a wide range of praise, this film was a big deal for Marvel fans.

For some background knowledge the film Morbius wasn’t allowed to be even written for the big screen, because Marvel believed it was too dark for their target audience. However, it was approved in the last coming years, and therefore was adapted for film purposes. 

The movie’s backstory involving the science behind how Morbius was made added to the story a whole bunch, however by the end of the movie the story line was lacking. Although, the relationships between all of the characters, whether it was brotherly, friendship, enemies, even to lovers was great, the way the main character resolved all of the issues was absent.

This movie was missing a mark personally, the strory line was wonderful and kept me hooked, however the ending and resolution was lacking a bit. I would give it a score of 6, however I don’t think I would watch this film again.
