So, I have just witnessed the spectacle that is Avengers Infinity War. This must be what it felt like seeing Star Wars for the first time back in the 70s. The last film which made me gobsmacked and made me want to see the sequel NOW was Lord of the Rings. This review will be a non-spoiler one, expect the spoiler review very soon, once more people have seen it.
As many reviewers have already said, there is not much to say about this film, without spoiling it; because anything I say about the movie would be a spoiler. What I can say is that the movie was absolutely spectacular, I was left speechless at the end of it for a very long time, and couldn’t stop thinking about it long after.
There has never been a film this hyped that I know of and in my opinion, it was well worth the hype. Every single scene was captivating, constantly keeping you engaged in the story throughout. My eyes were glued to the screen and they did not want to leave.
We’re 18 films in the Marvel series now, so there isn’t anything to say about the characters, except that they are all brilliantly cast. Each of them gives it their all. Due to such a huge cast; none of the characters got a lot of screen time, but when they were on screen they were all a joy to watch. Marvel’s humour shines through in the movie, but not oversaturating the film, because this is a serious and very dark movie.
The only complaints I could think of the film is that it ENDED! I did not want it to end, PLEASE MARVEL RELEASE A 6 HOUR CUT! The ending of the film also makes you just beg that the sequel was going to play straight after this movie finished. The only other minor nitpick in this film, is because of my knowledge of comics and theories circulating the film, I predicted a lot of events which happened in the movie, but they still broke my expectations.
Overall this film is an absolute joy to watch and will go down in history as one of the biggest epic events in cinematic history. Marvel has outdone themselves. I’m not going to spoil anything in this review, but I am going to watch it one or two more times and then do the spoiler review. My rating for this movie is an outstanding: 4.75 Thanos pops out of 5.
