movie hype Ratings: .5/5 (four stars)
Here’s movie hype judgement from the third episode of hawk eye. Clear in wanting to create the perfect Marvel product formula, which has continued to captivate audiences for years, and sincere in defining the importance of the series available on Disney +within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hawkeye arrives on the home screen after a major story mosaic movie like Eternals, which changed the stance on the story, and after a series like Loki, which seems to have started the expansion of the superhero narrative universe instead. Arriving at the third installment (we’re already halfway through the story), the identity of the miniseries created by Jonathan Igla is finally revealed, leaving it a step behind the other products seen in recent months, but managing to maintain that near-perfect finish. formula to replicate that does not leave indifferent.
Hawkeye Episode 3 Review and Analysis
The viewer is sitting on the couch at home. Clint Barton and Kate Bishop seated and tied on electronic horses intended for children, prisoners of the tracksuit mafia. The third episode entitled “Eco” (the reason lies in one of the best scenes) starts like this, connecting the protagonists with their audience, quietly waiting for the action that is not long in coming. When this happens, sparking a long chase, Hawkeye’s nature will be revealed for good. In a project that is increasingly crowded with works like Marvel Studios, including films, miniseries and animated series, it is necessary to give each piece you want to tell a precise identity.
The one dedicated to the character played by Jeremy Renner will not change the fate of the Marvel universe, but once again underlines how the cinema comics can become a great collector of subgenres and approaches. Hawkeye is pure entertainment, perfect for the holidays. This is evident in the amused desire to stage the action (with a sequence shot that does not remain indifferent), in how Kate’s character (an absolutely perfect Hailee Steinfeld) enhances the lightness of what happens on screen, from how the writing moves at a fast pace, even with a preference for some simplification too much. The series seems to reflect the same protagonist and his role within the Avengers group: a little more hidden, often overshadowed by the comparison of an Iron Man or a Captain America, but capable of being essential.
Beyond the action, however, the series manages to build excellent dynamics from the point of view of the relationships between the characters. In the second half of the episode, the bond between Clint and Kate is strengthened by a phone call and small gestures that seem natural and almost banal at first glance, say a lot. This dynamic is so well defined that the investigative story, which concerns the murder of Armand Duquesne, gradually loses importance and becomes only the superficial engine of the story. As in all stories set during the Christmas season, there is a lot of room for feelings, which is why the choice to dedicate an entire miniseries to Hawkeye rather than a canonical film is appropriate. Human relationships and empathy form the basis of the beautiful prologue dedicated to Maya, the woman we saw at the end of the previous episode. We learn more about her through a flashback. It is a short film, placed at the opening, almost self-sufficient and which excels in clarity of presentation and empathy.
He seemed like yet another adversary a week ago (talking about villain, a small detail in his story seems to foretell the return of a beloved character), but a few minutes are enough to see the viewer’s point of view change, placed in front of a already three-dimensional character, with his own past and precise strong motivations. More than the action itself, Hawkeye therefore emphasizes the dynamics of personal relationships. It is the emotions and the bonds between the characters that build, define and make the story special.
Hawkeye Episode 3 Review: The Last Words
We conclude our review of the third episode of hawk eye by underlining how the new Marvel Studios series does not aim to revolutionize the narrative universe to which it belongs, but rather tells a story of personal connections by building strong empathy between characters and onlookers. Don’t miss the action and wholesome entertainment of the Marvel formula, in a product that takes itself seriously enough, but the best moments of a writing that is sometimes a little too simple are found in the interpersonal dynamics. It is in those sequences that, in addition to the fun, there is a real narrative heart that does not leave indifferent. Perfect for the holidays and with two protagonists at work, Hawkeye proves to be a product aware of its role within the Marvel universe.
