a film so unique, intoxicating and bizarre that it not only demands another viewing, but is also forgivable as a satirical comedy where the jokes eventually take the back seat.
This is a coming of age storyline that you've seen in one form or another for decades. It takes a truly unique voice to make yet another one worth watching.
Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable
This is the first review I post at IMDb and the reason is because Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is that good. I haven't even finished the 4th season but still, starting this series has totally worth it. Now if you love Marvel as much as a lot of people do, is a must watch. First season is amazing and it helps a lot to understand some references of the main Marvel movies. In the second season you'll get to see more sci-fi stuff, because of the Inhumans. The third season starts with a portal to another planet, and still talks a lot about the Inhumans because they're being hunted down. The fourth season is just epic, nothing else to add. Now, the performance of the cast, for the 6 main characters, it's just brilliant. You'll fall in love even with the villain. That's it.
This review is 100% opinion based. I'm spit balling on theories.
I will admit that this show drags for a lot of season 1. It's a lot of talking on a plane, and the occasional bad guy. I barely made it to episode 14, and only did because I'm stuck in bed and I'm out of movies/t.v. shows I normally watch. Feel bored and unattached in season 1? That's normal. It's all character personality development, and trying to establish relationships. And they take their sweet time doing it. But I'm taking the time to write this review because I experienced excitement for the first time watching this series in Episode 14, Season 1. Why? Because of G.H. They finally reveal something worth mentioning.For people who aren't familiar with the comics, the Avengers and The Fantastic 4 cross paths quite often. With that comes the Silver Surfer, Galactus, Thanos, etc... but the movies completely failed the Fantastic 4, so they've been ignored, which means they're also ignoring the Silver Surfer. With the Infinity Wars happening now, and the movies expanding out into the universe, it will be harder to explain away the absence of characters that can rival the Avengers, and even overshadow them. But with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. they have chance to redeem the Fantastic 4, and herald in (get it?) Galactus, and other characters that the movies can't get to (or aren't focused on yet). No, they don't need to remake Fantastic 4 (please don't, it's just not working out), but they can recapture them (or at least Reed Richards) and infuse life back into the characters without making yet another awful movie. And hell, if they can manage to bring a little Reed Richards in here, and allude to a Herald of Galactus there, maybe then they can implant them into future Marvel movies without trying to get them to go stand-alone. Then again, it's only a t.v. show, so who knows what they'll pull from it. I can say though, they have a unique opportunity to introduce characters in the t.v show, and then tie them into the movies later, without all the overhead and risk of releasing a full blown movie. Question is... will they do it?
Agents of SHIELD is by far the best TV show based on Comic character (beside Netflix Marvel series like Jessica Jones Luck Cage , Daredevil and Iron Fist )
the characters are well develope . It's not like typical Superhero show with particular Villian and our hero defeat him and save the world , it's very complex and well written . the story is running parallel with the Marvel's movies (but without huge spoilers ) , and make you feel that marvel's world is so big and connected .
Phil Coulson is the protagonist in the show but they don't focus on that , they give other character a very huge part in the story and you keep forgetting that there is a central character , and the character are so intersting , facinating and complex .
It's worth watching and i hope they continue produce more seasons .
This series works so well as a stand alone engaging enthralling series,but also as a companion to the greater Marvel Universe. So many strong characters, with a cleverly evolving story line, that often surprises and delights in equal measure. All actors manage to suspend disbelief in the extraordinary and yet maintain a quixotic charm in their performances. 9/10 Brilliant.
