Is Eternals Worth Watching or Not?
Eternals were sent to earth by Celestial Arishem so that they could fight with Deviants. In the 15th century, all the deviants were killed. After this, all the 10 Eternals waited to be sent back to Olympia, their home planet. Sersi, an Eternal, lives in London, and she lives with Sprite. Gemma Chan plays the role of Sersi, and Lia McHugh plays that of Sprite. Sprite is seeing Dane (played by Kit Harington).
Sersi works as a museum curator. They are attacked by a deviant, and then it is decided by Sersi that all the eternals must come back to fight the upcoming threat. Phastos (played by Brian Tyree Henry) is the first gay superhero, and Makkari (played by Lauren Ridloff) is the first deaf superhero. Sersi is an Eternal who is quite vulnerable and powerful at the same time. There was also a sex scene between Sersi and Ikaris (played by Richard Madden).
Angelina Jolie is seen in the role of Then, who has the ability to create weapons that glitter. These weapons are made with the help of cosmic energy. Salma Hayek is seen as Ajak, who is the leader of the Eternals. Kumail Nanjiani is seen as Kingo, who is a Bollywood actor. The role of this actor’s manager Karun is played by Harish Patel. The mind control powers have been blessed to Druig (played by Barry Keoghan), and Gilgamesh (played by Don Lee) is the strongest one.
The movie is huge and full of philosophies. Sometimes the movie tests your patience as it is quite slow-paced. But it will be lovely to hear Nanjiani say Dishoom (especially for the Indian viewers) and Time by Pink Floyd. The movie is 157 minutes long. The movie is great in all, and you should WATCH it.
