As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.Wikipedia
Avengers: Infinity War Reviews
It is overstuffed and overlong, but there’s so much going on you’ll barely notice. Best enjoyed with a big tub of popcorn.
Infinity War didn’t wear me down in the way that Age of Ultron did, it didn’t give me the high of the first Avengers either. Like I said, manage expectations and you’ll be just fine.
As Thanos sits with "glorious sunshine" playing on his face -- a sad fellow eventually after getting what he wanted -- the second part of this cinematic battle is already on the drawing board somewhere..
Still, …Infinity War is a treat, and a welcome addition to the now-decade-old Avengers series. Already, we can’t wait for the next one.
Infinity War goes one step further and tries something bold. Maybe it is all a deception but this detour from blustering finishes towards an incomplete, unpredictable and unsafe course of events makes this one epic and the next one badly awaited.
It’s a big team effort with every actor swinging for the fences. The only drawback? All the blistering action, relentless humor and plot intersections might get overwhelming to the casual viewer. But it’s all part of the plan – there’s so much to digest it warrants a second viewing. If you’ve felt we’re nearing superhero exhaustion, Marvel just went and changed the rules leaving you begging for more – proving yet again that they are the real masters of this game.
Avengers: Infinity War leaves you breathless, and wanting more. It is the God of all Marvel films.
Avengers Infinity War is an epic spectacle no doubt and I believe the lack of modulation is intentional-an attempt to leave the viewers with questions more than answers
This is also the rare MCU film that understands that bigger is not necessarily better, so even though it offers some of the biggest action sequences of all time, and also a very long running time, every minute of Avengers: Infinity War is packed with energy, urgency and people you somehow seem to give a damn about, who make you fear for their lives.
But is Infinity War the best Marvel film to day? Not really. With standalone ventures, the scope of a languid pace is a more balanced approach. Two-and-a-half-hours is a long time to be constantly sitting on the edge of a seat.
