ABC, IMAX and Marvel TV didn't give out any advance screenings for their new Inhumans event series currently in theaters, but now critic reviews are starting to trickle in, and similar to the first batch of audience score ratings, they aren't good.
While there are only 11 critic reviews presently counted, they all are negative giving Marvel's Inhumans a current Rotten Tomatoes score of 0%. Here is a sampling:
• From Cnn.com:
Previewing of the first hour found little material of a scope that demands to be seen on an Imax screen. Inhumans" fidelity to the comics ... could also make it a tough sell beyond that loyal core.
Putting Inhumans into Imax is a kind of reverse Terrigenesis, in which a transformation from one thing into another only leads to reduction.
From what TV critics have seen, Inhumans is awful.
It does all seem faintly ridiculous. The interiors of Attilan look bland, bare and brutalistic, while the costuming and production design manage neither grandeur or grit.
• Digital Spy:
For Marvel completists only, Inhumans is - as many had anticipated - the weakest entry in the MCU to date, across screens big and small.
Inhumans is bad from top to bottom. Try as it might, the show does not live up to the Marvel brand. It is most definitely not worth seeing in IMAX, and I wouldn't recommend catching it on TV either.
At best, Inhumans resembles a mediocre '90s syndicated genre series, and blowing it up to IMAX size just puts a bigger spotlight on the flaws.
The Inhumans Rotten Tomatoes audiences score has also dropped following having risen at a steady pace and is now at 55% of the audience having said they liked it.
For a comparison, Marvel's worst rated project at Rotten Tomatoes is Iron Fist, with a 17% critics score, but 77% of audiences did state they liked it.
It should be noted Jeph Loeb and Marvel TV are behind Inhumans, which has nothing to do with Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios or the movies.
Following screening in IMAX, Inhumans airs on ABC Friday, September 29th with new content and proceeds with six more episodes.
Iron Fist's Scott Buck serves as the showrunner for Marvel’s Inhumans. Roel Reine (Scorpion King 3) directed the IMAX episodes, and the series stars Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Iwan Rheon as Maximus, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Ken Leung as Karnak, Ellen Woglom as an undisclosed character, Sonya Balmores as Auran and Mike Moh as Triton.
