Boy do Marvel know what they’re doing. Infinity War is a perfect blend of everything of everything we’ve grown to love about the marvel cinematic universe. It challenges audiences expectations of what a superhero movie is, and has real emotion at its core. Strong performances by all, brilliant effects and the mother of all dramatic endings. Wishing away the next year so I can see Part 2.
It’s as though the creators thought if they included a list of “everything you expect in a superhero movie” they’d end up with a good superhero movie. Unfortunately for them, Nolan’s Batman trilogy and the marvel cinematic universe have raised the bar. Explosions, a one-sided love interest and a well known character are not enough to make for an enjoyable ride. Lois Lane was diminished to a damsel in distress and there wasn’t the slightest consideration for civilians and collateral damage. The trailers set up for something epic, but all in all, this film is a disappointment.
