    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★½

    Way back in 2016, there were only two teams we worried about: Team Iron Man and Team Captain America. A document that basically stripped the Avengers of saving the world or universe as they pleased had torn our heroes apart. “Captain America: Civil War” was also the last serious Marvel movie as most of the solo flicks dove into the comedy realm. “Avengers: Infinity War” returns to its hard-action roots with a well-rounded villain most Marvel fans have been waiting…

With a set of beautiful leads and a fascinating landscape, “The Promise” combines beauty with tragedy while highlighting a dark period.
