Musical works are very controversial. Some find fidgeting and fidgeting too shallow, others completely drifting away by a sweeping artwork that stretches like an opera and calls like a pop song. Superhero Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) belongs to the first faction. He is taking a short vacation to New York with his family, the program is “Rogers – Musical” about Captain America, a story in it Is he the same / is he really the same? He plays an important role as a shooting hero. Seeing his life on stage, wrapped in cliched songs and cardboard backdrops, Hook finds quite humble. Because he had already finished all the adventurous things and wanted to become a completely ordinary family man. Slowly his mind drifts as he watches himself sing and dance on stage. His kids next to him are already asking if he’s turned off the hearing aid. It’s Christmas in New York and the gray light on the streets hides only a few colorful fairy lights.
This wonderful scene, self-reflection and funny – Here you must enter the chain for the first time – The idea isn’t entirely new: In the second “Avengers” movie from 2015, the heroes were allowed to drink iced tea on Hawkeye’s balcony and the theme that haunts some of the heroes surfaces: the desire to be normal. All unhappy superheroes are the same, each happy one is happy in his own way, one might say, based on Leo Tolstoy.
Transit? Young Kate (Hailee Steinfeld) isn’t a superhero yet, but she would like to be. Her role model: Hawk who saved her in the first Avengers movie in 2012. Nearly ten years have passed since then, and Kate has gone off to college to train shooting and martial arts with apprehension. Unlike Hawke, she is completely unhappy with her family: the rich mother, who always has to laugh at the new snoozers of the upper class in New York; The unlucky missing father in 2012. Things could get better at university. So why not become a superhero?

But aren’t the days of superheroes long gone? Wasn’t Kate ten years late? Self On her own series, on Kate’s series? The heroes relegated to the musical stages. Hero devotional items are auctioned off illegally and Kate wears a costume with which she begins her New York underworld thriller. Not a good idea at all. Because the costume used to belong to Hawkeye and some criminals still have an account of it.
Hockey, this hero armed with a bow and arrow, has always been a second-rate man. In addition to Playboy Iron Man and The Crazy Hulk, he looked very good, colorless, even boring. To this day, unlike almost all other Avengers, he has not received his own film. But at least now this little series is on Disney Plus – and that, at least as far as the episodes are shown up front, is pretty excellent. And not just because she thinks about everything: the hero characters have turned into a musical farce, the feeling of arriving too late, balancing the hero’s circus with real life. But above all because she finds the right balance and the right timing.
When it comes to shooting, the moment is crucial too: the string tension, the wind, the breath, everything has to be right when the arrow is released, and director Rhys Thomas is probably primarily responsible for Hook’s tag injury. It’s from the late night show Saturday Night Live One or two steps forward should be taken in every lapse and comment.

It was already ten years ago True grit Proving that, bitter seriously, he can also convey a lot of humor.
The jokes are true, the scene change, the secondary characters, and the lines of regret ignited by the hero: Even the one-eyed Christmas dog yelling at you from series posters isn’t as annoying as you should have feared. direct hit. from the second grade.
