Inhumans is now available for viewing, at least for those who live near an IMAX theater. Also only for those who are willing to pay for a film which will be available for free in a few weeks. In an effort to make your viewing decision easier, we’ve compiled summaries of the most significant reviews for you. As expected, folks haven’t got that many nice things to say about the show. It would be easy to place the blame for the negative reviews on showrunner Scott Buck, who has already disappointed many Marvel Fans with his portrayal of . However, IGN feels that there are many factors that keep the show from being as exciting as possible. The people behind show doubtless knew the criticism was on the way, and they lifted the embargo only as the project premiered, which is usually a sign of trouble of the horizon. With that being said, here are the reviews so far:
The Inhumans are a secret society of superhuman people who live on the moon, and while that is admittedly a weird concept, it’s not what holds the show back. It’s the crummy costumes, wooden dialogue, and all-around dull delivery of the material.
With a score of 4.0, IGN went on to give a scathing final verdict for what will be the first two episodes of the series.
Inhumans is bad from top to bottom. Try as it might, the show does not live up to the Marvel brand. It is most definitely not worth seeing in IMAX, and I wouldn’t recommend catching it on TV either.
Digital Spy tried to find some positive points in the series, but ultimately found it to be a disappointment.
For Marvel completists only, Inhumans is – as many had anticipated – the weakest entry in the MCU to date, across screens big and small.
A severe throwback to the mostly underwhelming comic book adaptations of the pre-Iron Man age, this looks to be a serious misstep, one that’ll hopefully provoke the House of M to take a step back and reevaluate their creative strategy.
There aren’t many official reviews out so MCU Exchange will have or own take on the series tomorrow. We definitely want to know how you feel. If you want to simply remember Inhumans as the series that you know and love, without seeing it potentially desecrated on the big screen, check out the .
Meanwhile, it looks like Runaways will be a refreshingly wonderful watch. Let’s think about that!
