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 with his family in New York, on the show “Rogers – The Musical” about Captain America, a story in which he himself plays a leading role as a archery hero and a member of the Avengers team. Hook, whose real name is Clint, thinks it’s just a humble vision, seeing his life on stage, wrapped in cheesy songs and cardboard backdrops. 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 mud of the streets is only slightly obscured by the lights of colorful fairies.
This amusingly funny, self-reflective scene in the new Marvel series hook Not a completely new idea: already in a second Avengers– In the 2015 movie, the heroes were allowed to drink iced tea on the balcony at Clint’s, and then the theme that haunts some of the heroes comes up: the desire to be completely normal. All unhappy superheroes are the same, each happy one is happy in his own way, one might say, based on Leo Tolstoy.
Young Kate (Hailee Steinfeld) isn’t a superhero yet, but she would like to be. Her great role model: Hawkeye of all people, who rescued her in the first “Avengers” movie in 2012. Nearly ten years have passed since then, and Kate went 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?
Kate’s very bad outfit belonged to Hook, who some still have an account with
But aren’t the days of superheroes long gone? Wasn’t Kate ten years late? Superheroes have been relegated to the musical stages. Hero devotional items are auctioned off at an illegal auction, and Kate puts on a costume with which to start her thrills about the New York underworld. Not a good idea at all. Because the costume was Hawkeye’s property, 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 turned into a musical farce, the feeling of being late, and the balance between hero circus and real life. But above all because she finds the right balance and the right timing.
In archery, the moment is also decisive: the tension of the strings, the wind, the breath, everything should be fine when the arrow is released, that’s why hook He’s hit the mark, perhaps director Rhys Thomas is primarily responsible. It’s from the late night show Saturday Night Live, Every gag and comment should be thought of a step or two. lead author of hook It is Jonathan Igla, who also comes from a completely different angle, namely from the series mad Men And Bridgeton.
It could be Jeremy Renner, who often falls short in his roles as an actor hook Anyway, explore the pent-up fears of his still funny superhero, which also works well because the chemistry with Hailee Steinfeld as Sidekick Kate is just right. It was already ten years ago True grit He proved that he can also convey a lot of humor with bitter seriousness.
The jokes are true, the scene change, the secondary characters, and the lines of contrition sparked by the hero: Even the one-eyed Christmas dog whispering at you from series posters isn’t as annoying as you should have feared. direct hit. from the second grade.
