Avengers: Infinity War review
*WARNING! Mild SPOILERS ahead!*
Well friends, it's finally here. The moment we've all waited 10 long years for. Avengers: Infinity War! Holy fucking moly bro... not only did Thanos come through and destroy any and everything in his wake, but he snatched my lining right along with them (Assuming that's the male equivalent of snatchin' edges, right?)
Whatever it is, he did it. In all seriousness, Avengers: Infinity War was an amazing movie, and easily sits at one of the top 3 MCU movies of all time (behind Captain America: Winter Soldier & Black Panther for me). Everything was on point when it came to this movie; the writing, direction, acting, villain and most of all, the consequences all come together to make this one of the best cinematic experiences of our time.
Honestly G, I'm still shook. Infinity War literally felt like a live-action comic book, and though I've read this story countless times in the comics, I truly wasn't prepared to see some of Earth's mightiest heroes die in this movie. The acting usually takes a backseat in comic book movies, but not in Infinity War. Just about everyone acted their entire ass off, especially Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Stephen Strange), Josh Brolin (Thanos), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Zoe Saldana's problematic ass (Gamora). The pacing was seamless as the movie transitioned from one scenario to another. There wasn't a shortage of action, but we didn't get unnecessary violence either.
THANOS. What a villain man. He was so calculated and really believed in his mission so much that I started to rationalize what he was doing. Josh Brolin really brought emotion and range to this role and the CGI on his character was amazing. I would have loved to see more of an explanation on why Thanos was so passionate about balancing the universe. Like, they explained it, but I think a proper foil would have really drove the point home. Someone on Twitter made a great point in saying that a lot of the sacrifices we saw were in the name of love, and I love that.
All in all, Infinity War surpassed expectations and I for one will be seeing this movie at least twice more in theaters. This movie had great acting and real ramifications for our favorite heroes. I'm giving the movie a 9.5/10.
Oh, and don't forget. Thanos a whole goofy, pidd.
