Things aren't looking good for ‘Eternals’, which has gotten mixed reviews from critics. Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 62 per cent rating. ‘Eternals’, the next film from Marvel Studios, has not been well received by reviewers. On the review aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes, the film presently has a 62 per cent rating. While the score is not the worst, it is the lowest of any Marvel Cinematic Universe film.

The 62 per cent rating was based on 92 critic reviews. For comparison, ‘Thor: The Dark World’ and ‘Black Widow’, both regarded among the franchise's weakest flicks, earned 66 per cent and 79 per cent marks, respectively. ‘Black Panther’ and ‘Avengers: Endgame’, on the other hand, received 96 per cent and 95 per cent ratings, respectively.

‘Eternals’ is the 26th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, directed by Oscar-winner filmmaker Chloé Zhao. Actors Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lia McHugh, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Barry Keoghan, Don Lee, Harish Patel, Kit Harington, Salma Hayek, and Angelina Jolie feature in the film.

Chloe, known for her compassionate storylines set against magnificent panoramas in films like ‘Songs My Brothers Taught Me’, ‘The Rider’, and the Oscar-winning ‘Nomadland’, said she wanted to go large on the scale while keeping the story personal.

For the unversed, the ‘Eternals’ are an extraterrestrial race that has been on earth for almost 7,000 years and has banded together to safeguard humans from their evil opposites, the Deviants. ‘Eternals’, which also stars actors Barry Keoghan, Lia McHugh, and Laura Ridloff, will be released in Indian theatres on November 5 in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam.
