Avengers: Infinity War – A Quick Capsule Review (MILD Spoilers)

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Avengers: Infinity War is over ten years in the making. Thats a lot to live up to then.  So the big question… does it deliver on those exceptionally insane expectations? Well yes.  Just.  Look any film that has a run time of two and a half hours and brings over 30 established characters to the screen is going to feel at times rushed and overstuffed.  But surprisingly the pacing here is one of it’s strong points and the characters the film does focus on works well (see Capt, Stark, Strange, Guardians) .  That does mean some characters are left on the back burner but you can’t have it all.  Also Thanos ends up being one of THE great comic book movie villains.  You believe in him as a character and he’s painted with a few shades of grey.  Brolin also doesn’t play him shouty shouty which makes him fee more real.   The biggest issue the film has is lack of surprise.  Outside the opening sequence, little happens that you don’t expect (with the exception of one sequence featuring the return of an old foe).  Characters fight and do what they do with very little consequence. And whilst I appreciate this was always meant to feel like the first of two films, the ending left me a bit hollow feeling like the inevitable big death will take place in the next film.  I was frustrated that I’m going to have to wait a year to get resolution – a resolution that will undo what was a powerful end of Infinity War.   So overall this is a top notch Marvel film for sure but one that isn’t quite the 5 star epic that mainstream reviewers have painted it as.
