Hawkeye Review (Episodes 1 & 2): What it’s about:

The world has seen Endgame and Thanos turn to dust, but victory has come with a price. Of course, for Hawkeye aka Clint Barton, the price was huge as he lost his best friend Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow. He is now leading a normal life with minor hearing problems. Kate enters Bishop, whose trajectory begins in 2012 when the Avengers battle the Space Force, and during the same time Kate loses her father. She looks at Hawkeye and idolises him. But in the present day she somehow picks up on Ronin’s dress and puts it on.

Ronin’s enemies are active and Bishop is on the hit list. Hawkeye is back to be a superhero and so begins the show.

Hawkeye Review (Episodes 1 and 2): What Works:

Hawkeye, one of the most non-glamorous Avengers, has been in the background forever. Her plain face and low speaking never took her to center stage, except when Black Widow made the sacrifice and we all cried. So getting her ready for the small screen is not a huge task, she is subtle and not too big of a life.

The writers shape the show in the holiday period, which is rare in the MCU. Also rare is the discovery of the more human side of the Avengers that have guarded Earth for decades. Clint never expresses his feelings and the first episode respects that. He has closely watched the endgame, having lost his only best friend and that too to an infinity stone. For 5 years his family was snatched from him, he became a watchman in those years. So the man has a baggage and the manufacturer makes sure that he looks like it. He’s probably aging fast, tries to control his spark and stays out of trouble.

His entry into the show is not larger than life, rather he is spending some low-key time with his kids, and promises to be with them this Christmas. He is trying to overcome the sadness of his life. But the world doesn’t want her to be normal, they keep reminding her that she is Hawkeye. A vigilante suddenly appears on the news in Ronin’s suit, and Hawkeye has to go back to work. If you don’t know who Ronin is, you’ve already seen him, and he’s also one of the Avengers.

Kate Bishop aka Hailee Steinfeld Enters! Now of the many writers across the board, whoever decided to shape Bishop as a teen from a coming-of-age drama, you probably won the show. Hailey’s ‘glamourous’ and protective nature is what highlights the show. She becomes the perfect contrast to Clint Barton at this point.

Speaking of dialogues, the writing is clever. “And I fought Thanos,” Clint murmurs, when a guy expresses a childish desire, or when Kate is super mean to him for being stepfather Jack Duquesne aka Tony Dalton, all too well. it happens.

Hawkeye Review (Episodes 1 & 2) : Star Performance:

Jeremy Renner totally knows who Hawkeye is. There’s no way he could go wrong in playing the most underrated Avenger. He has played with Chuppi and made appearances in ensemble films over the years. Now that he’s taken center stage, how can he not make you fall in love with his strangely charismatic demeanor?

Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop is a revelation. I don’t need more episodes to trust him and bet my money. The actor enters with a bang (literally) and shows why the casting agents chose him to move on. Plus, she definitely has great comic timing.

Tony Dalton is the mystery here because he is so much more than meets the eye. The actor sounds the alarm whenever he is on screen and I want to see what he comes out with.

Hawkeye Review (Episodes 1 and 2): What Doesn’t Work:

Now listen to me, Hawkeye is the lightest of all the other shows and movies currently in release or in Phase 4 release. Even the pilot indicates that the makers are taking their time and not really making a life bigger than it’s fantastic. But will going lighter for the entire season work for the entire studio?

On top of that, the show is set in the holiday period, which already adds an extra layer of joy and optimism that is canceling out the tension. It will be exciting to see the makers balancing this. Yelena Belova and Maya Lopez are set to appear in further episodes, so I’m giving my hopes up.

Hawkeye Review (Episodes 1 & 2): Final Words:

Marvel has begun to incorporate and explore the sides in which they have ventured less. Check out Hawkeye’s emotional catharsis while wrangling with the stuff of the past. Look into his deeply emotional eyes whenever he misses his beloved Nat. Watch the show and let me know if you agree.
