Avengers Infinity War #review #marvel #superhero
With Avengers Endgame now out, I’m gonna conclude the MCU reviews by talking about the biggest superhero film of all time. Avengers Infinity War is one of the best achievements for the superhero genre, it not lives up to the huge expectations but also gets better and better the more I watch it.
There’s so much to talk about, so let’s start with its most important and best element, Thanos. Yes Marvel’s villains have mostly sucked over the years but Thanos completely breaks this. From his first scene alone you automatically feel he is something to be feared. But then amazingly, the movie shows him to be a really complex and interesting character; though his methods of wiping out half the universe can intimidate the audience, his motives are what make him complex as he is trying to do what he thinks is best. And of course Josh Brolin is phenomenal in the role. Thanos is undoubtably Marvel’s greatest villain, in many ways on the scale of Darth Vader.
I also admire how the Russo brothers managed to mash all these characters into one movie, let alone make it work. I loved the Dr Strange and Iron Man “butting-heads” relationship, the romance between Scarlet Witch and Vision was very sweet, but the scenes with Rocket and Thor were the best; in fact Thor might be my favourite character in the movie, other than Thanos.
I also love how dark the movie is, there’s always a sense of impending doom and each battle sees the heroes lose. It’s exactly what I wanted from a movie that was built for years as the big accumulating climax of a shared universe. And the ending is perhaps the most emotional and darkest of moments in the MCU.
There’s more I could say, but to keep it short, Infinity War was what I wanted and in so many ways more, and I am so pumped for Endgame.
