Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters this week, and here are four quick thoughts on the film that will destroy the box office this weekend.
Three Scenes Worthy Of Goosebumps
It is ridiculous that a 41-year-old man goes gaga over a superhero movie, but three scenes are worthy of this emotional reaction. The first time you see Captain America on screen, it is pure power and emotion. The next two would spoil the film, and so the details will be vague. Moment number two will catch you off guard, and the third will have you jumping out of your seat. (Let me know what scenes gave you goosebumps.)
We Finally Get A Complete Comic Book Movie
From the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there have been parts of films that have been off or uninspiring. From the beginning to the end, Avengers: Infinity War feels like a comic book. The action is splash-page worthy, and the flow of the movie feels like an epic crossover. The Russo Bros. outdo themselves juggling all the different plotlines and characters.
The Unexpected Happens
The Disney version of the MCU has been dubbed “cookie cutter.” That can’t be said for Avengers: Infinity War, there are five or six moments in the movie where the Russo Bros. go big instead of playing it safe. The flow of the film kicks you in the teeth with weight and keeps you off balance with its scope.
There is a post-credits scene all the way at the end of the film, and it is worth the wait. The brief scene is very emotional and gets you excited for the next Avengers movie as another hero is introduced to the MCU.
Those are my four quick thoughts on Avengers: Infinity War. My full review will drop later this week. If you have questions or comments on the film, let me know below.
About the film:
AS THE AVENGERS AND THEIR ALLIES HAVE CONTINUED TO PROTECT THE WORLD FROM THREATS TOO LARGE FOR ANY ONE HERO TO HANDLE, A NEW DANGER HAS EMERGED FROM THE COSMIC SHADOWS: THANOS. A DESPOT OF INTERGALACTIC INFAMY, HIS GOAL IS TO COLLECT ALL SIX INFINITY STONES, ARTIFACTS OF UNIMAGINABLE POWER, AND USE THEM TO INFLICT HIS TWISTED WILL ON ALL OF REALITY. EVERYTHING THE AVENGERS HAVE FOUGHT FOR HAS LED UP TO THIS MOMENT – THE FATE OF EARTH AND EXISTENCE ITSELF HAS NEVER BEEN MORE UNCERTAIN.
