Marvel's Inhumans: "The First Chapter" Review

Marvel's Inhumans: "The First Chapter" Review

Marvel’s Inhumans is the latest entry in the ever-growing Marvel Cinematic Universe, but this new TV show doesn’t live up to the usual Marvel standard. The Inhumans are a secret society of superpowered people who live on the moon, and while that is admittedly a weird concept, it’s not what holds the show back. It’s the crummy costumes, wooden dialogue and all-around dull delivery of the material. The story follows the Inhuman royal family of Black Bolt, Medusa, and the rest as they rule Attilan – a hidden city on the moon – until a military coup forces to them go on the run to Earth down below. This might sound like the MCU’s version of Game of Thrones, and it certainly had the potential to be with its superhero monarchy and plays for power, but the show is a disappointment on every level. The costumes and makeup look like a group of friends decided to do Inhumans cosplay the day before Comic-Con. The royal palace, a main setting, looks like a warehouse on the outside and is full of bland, forgettable spaces on the inside. The clunky dialogue sounds like a first draft, not the sharp material you’d expect from the MCU. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the show that first introduced the idea of an Inhuman and which this new show has the thinnest of connections, earned its fans with a quick wit and some slick spy high jinks, whereas Inhumans has no firm tone or personality, it just globs along from one scene to the next.
