The Marvel Cinematic Universe is one of the most lucrative properties in cinema history with almost every release a surefire way to bring in that Galactus box office money.
However, just because an MCU movie brings in the big money, it doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be a good film. Take for example this year's Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (I seriously can't believe that it was only released this year), which drew over $106 million at the box office during its opening weekend, but only has a critic Rotten Tomatoes score of 46%.

The most recent MCU movie to arrive at the box office is The Marvels which releeases on the silver screen this week. At the time of writing, The Marvels has a critic score of 60% on Rotten Tomatoes, thus making it the third lowest MCU movie ever. In the next few days, the audience reviews will begin to roll in.
So what have the critics been saying about The Marvels? “The Marvels is a rocky ride that feels crowded by MCU compromises, which undermines the star power of its cast and the talents of its director,” said Kristy Puchko. “As tentpole entertainment, it feels inconsequential, if slightly diverting. To put it in corporate speak, it could have been an email,” said a brutal Adam Graham. “Thankfully, the movie clocks in at a mere 105 minutes. “The Marvels” doesn’t have much to say, but at least it says it quickly,” said a not-so-pleased Mick LaSalle.
Thankfully, there are some positive words about The Marvels, so it’s not all bad. “While it’s full of all the expected Marvel metaphysical head-spinning... it’s also unexpectedly endearing, a pleasant popcorn-flavoured joy ride into the cosmos, with three likeable heroes as our guides,” Moira MacDonald said.
“Fans of earlier films in the series will probably take a hard pass here, but for those of us who enjoy a bit of satirical silliness, The Marvels manages to be both funny and endearing,” exclaimed Linda Marric. “Kamala comes into her own here and works really well at meeting her heroes. Both the actress and the character are clearly so excited to be in a big Marvel movie that you can't help but get a little swept up in it yourself,” explained Christian Holub.
At the end of the day, all of the above are only personal opinions and everything is subjective. So if there’s any movie that you fancy seeing, just go watch it and hopefully, you’ll have a great time.
The Marvels will be available in cinemas worldwide from tomorrow.
