Morbius, was it great? No. Was it bad? No. Definitely did not deserve to be thrown through the ringer.

Couple gripes;

1) The nightcrawler treatment on teleporting and moving for living vampires.

2) Sony, thinking too far outside of the box and making a "new" villian is why everyone hates your movies. You tinker too much.

3) the end cut scenes are stupid and don't make much sense. Why does the Vulture remember and why is he cool with it? No concerns about his wife and daughter or where the hell they are? Come on. If they make Morbius a part of sinister 6 I'm going to be pissed.

As for good things;

1) The CGI look for morbius was pretty good IMO. Leto actually did better acting than what people are giving him credit for.

2) Timewise, on the shorter end for MCU movies. A 2.5+ hour movie is not always a good thing.

3) ...yea I'm running out of things.

Yeah. This is nowhere near as bad as it was made out to be.

Its certainly MILES ahead of the Carnage movie.

Could it have been better? Yes.

I did think that Jared Leto did a good job. He immediately walked into the proper anti-hero role. Very much the same way that Morbius was in the Avengers. Granted the Morbius lineage was the absolute villains in the Spider-Verse series. But that's comic books for you.

The character issues in the movie stem from Sony being locked in a sandbox of characters they have license for. If they had access to MCU characters, this could have been a very different and better movie.

Tyrese Gibson as an FBI agent was a bit of a reach.

Doctor Who as a villain? Meh.

I agree here. Was not good. Was not the worst, but lets be honest, Morbius should have been an easy story to tell.

1-Teleport was stupid. 100%
2-Totally agree with you. but that was clear. Morbius is now in the Sinister6. Like, uhm why
3-ufck a Tyrese. That guy sucked so bad in this its unreal. I kept expecting him to yell EJECTO SEATO, CUZ!
4-So many story gaps. "Hey doc, come with us, we THINK you MIGHT have done something on a ship in international waters, even though we really cant place you on that ship in any way. Leto-COVER BLOWN, LETS VAMP OUT AND ATTACK! (uhm, why?)
5-So did he vamp when he did get blood or when he didnt? i mean im in prison, and im fine. Then blood is delivered BOOM BITCH IM OUTTIE 5000!


look. dont take this wong BUT:

if im crippled and my best friend in life is crippled and we suffered our whole life, WE BOTH GONNA BE ufckIN VAMPIRES. he suffered too! shiat give it to him and lets ufckin run this bitch together. i mean, you already are using bat DNA in your projects, what you now suddenly have morals? GTFO.

Why is the female doc alive and a vampire exactly? Was this movie a set up for her movie next?

I thought Leto was phenomenal with what he had to work with. But i like the guy as an actor.
