Morbius review – insipid Marvel misfire | Superhero movies


Jared Leto injects himself with bat serum and develops a swooshy Fields of the Nephilim cloak, a man bun and the ability to see sound; Matt Smith injects himself and morphs into a Wall Street rogue trader, made entirely of pinstripes and evil. This, and their mutual need to chug pints of blood, rather strains their friendship in this incoherent, vampire-themed Marvel offcut. Leto plays controversial genius Dr Morbius; Adria Arjona gets the thankless role of right-hand-woman/love interest Dr Martine Bancroft, whose main skills seem to be ponytails and pouting.
