Madame Web is the latest film from Marvel Studios to be released in theaters across the country.
It stars Dakota Johnson, Sydney Sweeney, and Adam Scott, among others.
This strong cast leads a film that is summarized by IMDB as:
Cassandra Web develops the power to see the future. Forced to confront revelations about her past, she bonds with three young women bound to powerful destinies if they can all escape a deadly present.
Sounds promising, right?
The film is also based on a popular comic book, and yet… early reviews of Madame Web are poor.
We’re talking so incredibly depressing that we now want to go see Madame Web to enjoy its frankly epic horror.
Just consider what the following critics are saying about this film…
Madam Web isn’t as bad as you’ve heard. it’s too bad, – Rolling stone
Based on Madame Web, Sony’s Spider-Man Universe Is Now Completely Lifeless – and in No Need of Reinvention, – The Daily Beast
Madame Web is one of these efforts that emerged recently. the film, It takes the same amount of energy as an employee breaking the ice during a corporate retreat. It’s an airless and stilted effort driven by a mechanical script. Its lack of imagination would be surprising if it were not expected, – Hollywood Reporter
No one in this movie pops, or cracks, or snaps, or finds ways to activate blah blah. There isn’t much action; Minimalism of acting borders on somnambulism, – The Chicago Times
The struggle to find anything positive is a futile effort. Madam Web disappoints on every count, – Movieweb
Variety, for its part, writes that “Madame Web feels like a mix between an extended soda commercial and a teaser trailer for an even bigger spinoff.
“But you don’t have to be a clairvoyant to see that this particular franchise is DOA — or a snob to expect better.”
From what we can gather, Madame Web is expected to gross $30 million to $35 million after its Wednesday release and hence the lowest domestic opening ever for a Sony Spider-Man film.
At the time of this writing, the film holds a disappointing 17% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Yes, that’s out of 100.
We’ll go ahead and give the final negative word here to the website UPI, which wrote this week:
Madame Web is bad in more ways than even debacles like Catwoman and Batman & Robin ever thought possible.
The cat and the bat’s discovery of powers were comically misguided in those films, but Madame Web also struggles to explain its premise.
[But] At least Catwoman and Batman and Robin believed in what they were doing.
They were wrong, but Madame Web feels like a cynical copy of the minimum to qualify as a comic book movie
