Better than what critics are saying

I’m not sure why this is getting a lot of bad reviews. It’s certainly not as bad as critics think it is. It’s not a perfect movie but it’s not the worst either. I did think that the film had weird and confusing camera work. The storyline and villain were also very predictable; however, they were still interesting. I thought the special effects were epic, but at times, overdone. Still, I liked that there were no unnecessary action scenes, and I felt that all of them were perfectly placed. The acting was excellent for the most part, and I felt connected to the characters. Overall, Morbius is enjoyable and entertaining enough to watch; it didn’t bore me and it brought a lot of tension. While I do wish that the movie explored its horror element more, it was still eye-grabbing.
