“I’ve watched humans destroy each other when I could stop it all in a heartbeat. Do you know what that does to someone after centuries? Could our mission have been a mistake? Are we really helping these people build a better world? We’re just like the soldiers down there: pawns to their leaders, blinded by loyalty.” – Druig

Brief Synopsis – A group of super beings are sent to Earth to help it develop over the millennia.
My Take on it – As a fan of superhero movies and the MCU, I have been looking forward to seeing this movie for quite some time.
I knew nothing about these super beings and was curious to know how they will fit into the greater story of the MCU.
This movie does a great job introducing these characters and acting as an origin story so that those of us new to their story could get a better understanding of how they will work within the overall storyline.
This film does a great job establishing them as defenders of the Earth and is even able to explain their true purpose for being sent here.
The film’s special effects are amazing and this film’s action scenes are on par with everything else that we’ve been given in the MCU so far.
The cast is superb and the choice to culturally diversify the characters works quite well in establishing them as a global unit of defenders.
Can’t wait to see how they will eventually fit into the overall scheme of things.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Lauren Ridloff had difficulty in reacting in scenes she is required to interact with a digital character or in action scenes due to her deafness. She credited Angelina Jolie who helped her by using a laser pointer pen to guide her on the direction she would require to look at. (From IMDB)
Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
