Avengers: Infinity War ★★★½

69

You should have gone for the head...

Admittedly better than I remembered- maybe I was a little harsh on it at first- but it's still just a giant first act for an equally humongous second and third act in the Endgame. But anyone acting like the denouement isn't going to have some magical Deus ex machina turn it around (because every mainstream blockbuster movie needs a happy ending- not a criticism) is either lying or delusional. It was never a surprise and in the end predictable, but it's still clear that at least the Russos understand these characters and how to make them all work together in a seamless way. A messy feat still, but undeniably entertaining.
