Avengers: Infinity War ★★★

I mean, it did all the funny quips and didn't entirely lose me with action in the third act, but...

It feels like Marvel wants to act like it has raised the stakes to a level it simply cannot commit to. There's no way those characters stay dead, so why should I care? Where is this going? What's even the point anymore? The film leans on a weak and uninspired score as a substitute for dramatic tension, and I ask myself, 2 days on from seeing it, did I actually even like it?
