Earlier this week we got the first reviews for the upcoming Sony Marvel movie Morbius, starring Jared Leto. The movie will finally be released in theaters on April 1, 2022, after no less than seven delays. Unfortunately, it seems like the movie isn’t worth the wait.
First reviews for the movie didn’t hold back in expressing their disappointment. You can check some of the first reviews down below:
“Well, Morbius is about as bad as you were expecting. A 2005 plot collides with visually confusing CGI to create a bit of a snooze fest. But don’t worry, they’ve saved the worst for last. Featuring some of the worst post-credits scenes you’ve EVER seen, Sony are off their rocker.” — @sab_astley, Collider
“In Morbius Matt Smith gloriously hams up the place and Oliver Wood delivers some visual flare to the action sequences. Aside from that, the bad plotting & messy CGI, confusing editing & worse sound mix result in absolute incoherence But the post-credits manage to outdo it all” — @RenGeekness, Wolf of Geek Street
“Morbius is just as disjointed and boring as you expected it to be. Clearly butchered in an edit by a studio who had no clue what they wanted to do with it – not that there’s a good film trapped in there. Mid credits are a joke but stick around if you like rolling your eyes.” — @CamzoOG
“Well, Morbius is unfortunately not great (some really shoddy VFX & 00s formulaic plot) & definitely not as fun as Venom. Really confused at the future of the Sony Spiderverse following the post-credits scenes & the editing. Matt Smith is clearly having a blast though!” — Nicola Austin
As we can see, reviewers who had to chance to experience the movie first hand agreed that the movie is pretty messy and disappointing, and many agreed that the post-credit scene is very bad. We can’t wait to see if it’s actually that bad, to be honest. Check the official synopsis of the movie down below:
“Biochemist Michael Morbius tries to cure himself of a rare blood disease, but when his experiment goes wrong, he inadvertently infects himself with a form of vampirism instead.” — Morbius, official synopsis
Directed by Daniel Espinosa, Morbius is starring Jared Leto, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, and Tyrese Gibson. The movie will play in theaters starting April 1, 2022.
