Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War ★★★★★

As the culmination of ten years worth of extraordinary storytelling, rich character development, and excitement-inducing build-up, Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War not only lives up to the hype but also completely exceeds and even downright shatters it, delivering what is not only one of the most ambitious comic book films and blockbusters ever made but also the pinnacle achievement of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well as its most daring installment without even a shadow of a doubt, with fantastic performances, a phenomenal villain, breathtaking visual effects, a rousing score, gorgeous cinematography, imaginative action sequences, a perfect balance between humor and emotion, and a script that, like the prior two Avengers films, emphasizes the humanity of its titular heroes and it's all the better for it.

Avengers: Infinity War pulls absolutely no punches. It is a masterclass in story, character, and spectacle. The way it manages to juggle multiple different characters and storylines and balance them with the utmost precision and finesse to make the whole as coherent as it could possibly be is utterly stunning. I laughed. I cried. I gasped. I jumped. I cheered. I fucking loved this movie.
