Reviews for Morbius are in, and it has received some of the worst reception for any Marvel adaptation, ever.
Morbius received a critical mauling, managing to receive a C+ CinemaScore (giving it the second-lowest for a Marvel adaptation ever). I mean, just look at some excerpts from reviews below:
“An incoherent, vampire themed Marvel offcut.”- Observer
“Morbius is a forgettable, often laughable, entry in Sony’s attempt to fill its own Spider-Man-Adjacent cinematic universe, a poorly edited, derivative time suck- pun intended.”– Associated Press
“Morbius’s greater fault is that it cleaves away the vampire mythology without replacing that mythology with anything fun, new, or particularly interesting.”- Vox
In addition to this, Morbius also has 17% on Rotten Tomatoes, meaning the film is now the second lowest-rated Marvel movie ever made. It has only ‘bested’ 2015’s Fantastic Four reboot, which has 9% on Rotten Tomatoes and a C- CinemaScore. Fantastic Four (2015) was hated by audiences too, but Morbius is sitting at a 70% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Morbius was an experience. I wouldn’t quite say that it’s altogether a good experience, but I spent an entire screening agape and shocked at quite what I was seeing. It’s up to you whether or not you go and see it, but if you’re anything like me these reviews will put you off to quite an extreme degree.
What did you think about Morbius? Did you enjoy it? Or did you hate it, like many critics? Let us know!
