Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War ★★★★½

How this even works, I don’t know. It’s made out of a composite of chunky sequences smashing into one another, dropping plot threads for up to 30 minutes at a time, has next to no character development, and is clearly a corporate magic trick to convince us that the Marvel brand is eventually changing. At the same time, I guess that means it’s the absolute culmination of everything Marvel is about as a studio, meaning this is incredibly fun in the broadest possible strokes, treating its characters like the action figures that they are. It’s absolutely preposterous, and preposterously entertaining in the same measures. Literally untoppable for what it is.
