Morbius (2022)

Watch Morbius Full Movie Online

Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Michael Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.

Review:

Michael Morbius was born with a rare blood disease which threatens to cut his life short (and also friend Milo’s). Fortunately he isca brilliant scientist, and his research leads to a vampire bat-based serum. For anyone who has ever seen a science fiction or horror film, or read a comic, the side effects will come as no surprise.

This movie has come in for moderate criticism which, in my view, isn’t wholly deserved. The story is solid, if unsurprising, a routine superhero origin. The cast are all good. The effects are well executed.

The problems, because there are for sure problems, come down to script and direction. There are areas which need explanation but none is offered – why does Michael call Lucien Milo? What exactly are the powers which come with the treatment? Dressed up in special effects, there is an echo-location thingie, also some sort of smeary thing which is flying? I dunno. The fact that the effects often take place in extreme darkness and rapidly edited jigglecam adds to the difficulty in following what’s going on. This shouldn’t be difficult to follow – it’s a straightforward story – but the director seems to have sacrificed clarity in favour of style, and this was a good decision. The scenes setting up follow-ups also have an element of “Huh?”

This is not as bad as it’s painted, but it should have been much better.

The interaction of Sony’s Spiderverse with Disney’s MCU continues to intrigue and entertain.
