The celestials send the Eternals to save the human race. They have supernatural powers. Ikaris, Kingo, Gilgamesh, Thena, Sersi, Phastos, Sprite, Makkari and Druig are the Eternals led by Ajak. Each one of them has different powers. Everyone has separate stories, and they also have some differences among them. While the Eternals are guarding humanity, the devils rise beyond their guesses and give troubles. Was the Eternals team able to manage them and save the world? The rest of the story deals with this.

Star Performance

Harish Patel has done an excellent job, and his comic timings are perfect. Angelina Jolie is neat in her role, while Gemma, Richard Madden, and Kumail Nanjiani have done justice to the given roles.


Not all the characters are perfectly penned. In particular, Thena played by Angelina is not so sharp and should have been written in detail. The villain roles don’t create any impact. Although the stars performed well, if the role is not strong enough, then their performance goes in vain. Certain scenes seem to have been inserted forcedly. The CG works are quite good. The action sequences are neatly sketched and the stars did it with perfection. The BGM is impressive too. There is an intimate scene, which should have been avoided.

What’s There?

  • The performance of the stars are good
  • VFX works are excellent

What’s Not There?

  • The characters are not penned properly
  • Certain actors are not used well


Although the action sequences and some discussion scenes are impressive, the film didn’t bring the expected energy to satisfy the fans to the core. However, it is watchable once!
