The POPGORGE Skinny:
After earning her stripes doing acclaimed independent movies and winning an Oscar for Nomadland, director Chloé Zhao tries her hand at the superhero genre with this, the third film in Marvel's sprawling Phase 4 rollout. There's a lot to enjoy in this feature, which takes the MCU in exciting new territory and opens up loads of new story possibilities. It's well-paced, and succeeds overall in telling the story without becoming too clunky. The moments of levity sprinkled throughout are a delight, even if some of them didn't quite land and felt forced.
