Avengers: Infinity War Review (Non Spoilers)


Avengers: Infinity War movie rating 

IMDb - 9.2/10
Rotten Tomatoes - 86%



Avengers Infinity War is finally here and like an eager little fanboy looking out of the window for papa to come homeboy who I have feelings I know it's a little early and maybe you have not seen it yet, but don't worry I'm not gonna spoil anything this is my non-spoiler review of the movie.

Really just some deeper thoughts to consider as you head into the movie or if you have seen it a hot take to not along- or shake away okay. 

So how was the Avengers infinity war? Well, answer to that question you have to consider what kind of movie this is,  now it's hard to judge infinity war as a movie because emotionally speaking this is more of an event than a movie a crossover finale paying off a decade of interweaving storylines across multiple previous movies. Now a movie traditionally has three act introduced the hero challenged a hero or villain and then show what the hero does to overcome those challenges. This is pretty much the formulae that we've seen Marvel studios do in every one of its past adventure taking characters and storylines from comic books and fitting them into a cinematic format a redemption tale team up, caper spy,  thriller, buddy comedy, political drama and break up story but Infinity war doesn't do that instead it plays like a true comic book crossover issue designed to pay off essential back issues with interesting conflict and teamwork and surprising pairings spectacle. The thrill of infinity war first major strength it is all third act it's a finale to the finale to the movie that we have been watching for 10 years now it's doesn't answer all the questions. 

The best thing about the movie is Thanos. Thanos himself who's the second big strength. His goal of collecting six infinity stones and wiping out half the universe is the mission that we are most curious to see accomplished even if its break our hearts to see that happen that's how you know you have a great villain by the way like kill monger in black panther a part of us kind of wants to see the evil plan succeed mostly because we care so much about all these characters that we want to see how they respond  and that emotional connection is the third big strength of Infinity wars.

  1. Infinity War inherits plenty of the problems endemic to crossovers: the privileging of quantity over quality, of spectacle over story, and of the shock value of major changes to the status quo over just about everything else.
