“I need a bow and arrow…”
Hawkeye premiered on Disney+ on November 24th 2021 with its first two episodes. There will be six episodes in total and the remaining ones will air weekly. The superhero action series stars Jeremy Renner, Hailee Steinfeld, Vera Farmiga, Tony Dalton and Florence Pugh. Each episode runs for approximately 49-52 minutes.
Clint Barton finally gets his own story as he tries to deal with life after the Avengers, but he finds himself back in action when he crosses paths with a young woman named Kate Bishop.
Here is the trailer:
Hawkeye brings us another superhero series to binge-watch, allowing Clint a true chance to shine, but does it do enough to earn a watch? Let’s find out…
A dynamic duo worth getting excited about!
Hailee Steinfeld is honestly strong enough to carry this show on her own. I already love the character of Kate Bishop and I think that she brings a quirky charm to the role. I think that her and Jeremy Renner make an excellent team and I loved the interaction and banter between them.
Good balance of humor and action.
It’s not always easy finding this balance and Hawkeye does it so effortlessly. There were so many laugh-out-loud moments sprinkled in, which was really entertaining and there is already a scene stealer you will absolutely adore.
So far the action sequences are good too and I think that the pacing is done extremely well. I didn’t even realize when an episode was over because I was fully immersed in my watch.
The kids need something to do…
I get that Clint is a family man and I loved seeing his kids appear on the show so far, but they really need something to do. His daughter is only a little bit younger than Kate and I’d love to see them show off their own heroic potential but perhaps we will get to see them more in the later episodes.
There just seems to be a lot of possibility brewing here so I’d love to see it explored a little bit more.
So am I in or out?
This was such an entertaining watch so far and I can’t wait to see what happens next! I love the dynamic between the characters and the plot is really interesting too.
I highly recommend this series to Marvel fans, but even if you haven’t seen all of the films, you won’t feel lost watching this show. It’s truly a delight!
I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Hawkeye in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!
