A film by ChloƩ Zhao. That's probably what intrigued me the most while watching. I wonder how involved Zhao really is in a production like this. Designs, music, cinematography, comedy ... the only thing that stood out was the extra focus on the characters and their motives. And that certainly didn't make the film any better.

When Deviants return to the Earth, the Celestials living among us are forced to come out of hiding to protect humanity from extinction. But their mission is a lot bigger than initially expected. When they finally discover why they were sent to Earth, they have a very tough decision to make.

When you have a dumb plot and dumb characters, the last thing you do is spend more time on them, but alas, here we are. The designs are also pretty drab, the film looks and sounds like your average Marvel film and at 2.5 hours, it's at least 45 minutes too long. This could've been fun, instead it was cheesy and boring.
