Greetings! Everybody is talking about the new Avengers movie. It’s been out for a few weeks and I didn’t have a chance to review the film until now. I’ll give you my thoughts about the Infinity War, including both positive and negative elements.
Let’s start with a brief plot synopsis. Thanos is an intergalactic being who wants to obtain the Infinity Stones. These stones have immense power that can warp reality, time, and more. He wants to bring balance to the cosmos by destroying half of all life in the galaxy. This nightmare will become a serious threat if Thanos collects the stones because he’ll become the most powerful entity in the galaxy. All of our favorite superheroes in the MCU need to join forces and save the cosmos. It's an intergalactic battle that will change everything for our favorite superheroes.
Overall, I believe the Infinity War is a great film. It’s exciting and daring with fantastic action scenes. The film makers took a lot of risks and it was a smart decision. It’s unpredictable with an awesome villain and a smorgasbord of superheroes. Even though it’s a little bit convoluted, the story is still pretty good. The visual effects are amazing and I will be really disappointed if this category doesn’t get an Academy Award nomination. This movie is like a rollercoaster ride from beginning to end. Action movie fans will really love this film. Comic book fans should also feel satisfied. Infinity War is faithful to the original comics, but it also changes some elements to avoid predictability.
Surpsringly, Thanos is a tremendous villain with a lot of character development. He’s probably one of my favorite villains portrayed in a superhero film. There’s a very strong motivation behind his master plan. He’s not evil just for the sake of the movie. Thanos is a complex character and it’s oddly easy to sympathize with him at times. He’s very intimidating and easily one of the most destructive beings in the galaxy. I’m also impressed with his motion capture elements. He’s a CGI character who looks great. Thanos doesn’t look like a cartoon or video game character. He has convincing facial expressions and genuinely appears to be made out of flesh. I also enjoyed one of his minions named Ebony Maw. Unfortunately, he’s not a particularly big character. Ebony Maw has really cool powers and seems a lot different than most Marvel villains. I find him kind of weird and interesting. The Marvel heroes don’t stand out much individually, but they make terrific teams. I would say we have three solid groups in the film. Each team makes use of everyone’s powers and it’s a very entertaining sight. Teamwork seems to be a major theme in the Infinity War.
In terms of criticism, I guess there might be too many characters in the film. It’s necessary for the story, but none of the characters can have adequate development or screen time except Thanos. I don’t even think it’s essential to show a lot of character development in this movie, but there’s an additional problem. Audiences need to understand these characters really well ahead of time. You need to see all of the MCU films before watching the Infinity War. Otherwise, you’ll be completely lost. I’m not kidding. This might be a daunting task for many people. Hardcore Marvel fans have seen everything, but that’s probably not the case for casual movie goers. If you want to see the Infinity War, some homework might be necessary.
The film also has plenty of plot holes too. I don’t think it’s a big deal because we should expect that from an overloaded plot. However, it might be a little bit confusing for some viewers. In fact, people who read the Infinity War comics will understand the story better than everyone else. Does that seem unfair? People complained about the plot being confusing in the Justice League movie. If people weren’t familiar with the comics, it seemed confusing. The same thing is true for Infinity War. Sorry, but it’s true.
I was quite proud of the film’s outcome. It was a risky story and the creators of this movie did a really good job. I’m sure it will make comic book fans happy. It’s not a perfect film, but I think the Infinity War could easily be my favorite movie of the year. I guess it will depend on future film selections. If you’re a Marvel fan, go see this movie ASAP. I highly recommend seeing it on a large format screen like IMAX. This movie will cater to action movie buffs too, but make sure you watch the other MCU installments first.
