Morbius movie review - Aussieboyreviews


Jared Leto and Matt Smith aren’t too bad in this new Marvel legend movie. However, the action is very CGI and is probably too mild. Those who enjoyed 2018’s Venom may appreciate Morbius, but don’t get your hopes up too much.


Dr. Morbius, a human born with a rare blood disease, creates a cure in determination to save others from the same fate. While it seems to be a radical success at first, he infects himself with a dangerous vampirism instead.

Aussie boy's thoughts

For Venom and Marvel fans who love CGI action, Morbius is a total blast! To be practical though, it’ll probably go down as one of the worst Marvel movies that have been designed and shot for many noticeable reasons. Everybody just seems to miss the fact that it’s reasonably entertaining, and the action sequences are consuming with jump-scares and vampire-themed chases.

The specific problem with the bloodsucking action scenes that eventually lower the enjoyment of the movie are all the moments where the blood is kept at a mild limit. This was obviously done to avoid a more mature rating so there would be more audiences in the theatres, but seriously, bloody superhero-related movies like Deadpool and Logan usually deserve more credit and fame. It doesn’t get anywhere more violent than Venom, but the CGI work is still worth going to the cinemas for.

When you’re watching it, a lot of the details and themes make it obvious that the actual execution with decent direction, cinematography, editing and sound is what’s surprisingly done well. Reading it as a book or something, it has an extremely flat idea for the story and the screenwriting is just terrible. Jared Leto is an excellent vampire-superhero and Matt Smith is equally as brilliant in the opposite-to-the-protagonist role, but they truly deserve to participate in better material.
