There's even a chilling echo of it in Thanos himself. In many ways, the film stands as a testament to the human capacity not just to love, but to love fiercely and beyond all logic. Everyone had the chance to shine even if it's the smallest way possible. It demonstrates on an epic scale what Marvel has known all along: that special effects and tightly choreographed action are there to serve the story. I wouldn't go that far, but I would say his character is misunderstood. Every single one of those ratings and reviews should be taken down and not added to the rating for Infinity War because of their fundamental lack of understanding.
Most other superhero films are bled of high stakes - the hero in the title might suffer untold trauma, but it's a super-safe bet that he or she will make it to the end alive. Practically everyone that you've seen in the previous marvel movies that aren't dead, are in this movie. Masterfully directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Infinity War is bold, brainy filmmaking at its very best: the kind that will lift your spirits, blow your mind and shatter your soul - occasionally in the same scene. What's so impressive about Infinity War is how it expertly juggles its constantly shifting tones and moods. A lesser film would have turned Thanos into a one-dimensional villain, much the way he's all monster and maniac in the comic books. In many ways, the film stands as a testament to the human capacity not just to love, but to love fiercely and beyond all logic. In Avengers: Infinity War, the Avengers join forces with the to confront , who is trying to amass the.
Just because the villain won doesn't mean it didn't have an ending. No, Black Panther himself was not any kind of problem in Avengers: Infinity War. He's ably matched by Cumberbatch, who finds vulnerability even in his character's most cunning and calculative move. There were so many character arcs in this movie and none of them were cut short or boring. I've read a lot of other user reviews that claim that there's no plot. It's a blithely tongue-in-cheek sensibility shared by Marvel's best comic books, which understand that humour can make you care when it really counts.
I was amazed to see so many negative reviews; so many people are impossible to please. It's like a long game of chess where Thanos finally makes his move, and it's a huge one. There's no such guarantee here. And all of them are coming together in a bid to stop a giant purple alien dude from destroying the universe. It features 30 or so characters, each with their own complex backstories and motivations. The motivation of his doing and his character development made him the best character in the movie, making the movie all about him. Similar to Emperor Palpatine in the Original and Prequel trilogies of Star Wars.
Hemsworth, meanwhile, is given free rein to import the big-hearted comedic swagger of Thor: Ragnarok into this film - while also layering it with a deeply-felt, jagged grief for the losses he has suffered at the hands of Thanos and the universe. Upon first viewing, I hated him, but found his character intriguing. The studio has consistently delivered smart, funny, brave films that both embrace and transcend their comic-book origins. Death, as well as genuine loss and sacrifice, is intrinsic to the narrative drumbeat that drives Infinity War ever forward, and the film is all the better for it. I finally saw the movie at the end of a recent trip it came out the day we flew out and walked away mostly happy.
In effect, this is a superhero mêlée that's part over-the-top and part overkill, and might prove too much for those who don't already care for this franchise and the characters in it. Indeed, this may be the most monumental ensemble cast of all time. It continues the studio's tradition of placing a premium on rich, complex storytelling that respects both its characters and its audiences. Thanos needed to have more of a story before Infinity War. It also became the , doing so in 11 days. But that's precisely what makes the final product such a monumental achievement. For the most part, Infinity War does justice, too, to the many heroes who have been assembled for the film.
There is, as it turns out, method to Thanos' madness. The action is inspiring, not just bombastic. It demonstrates on an epic scale what Marvel has known all along: that special effects and tightly choreographed action are there to serve the story. When it's funny and it very often is , it's deeply, truly funny. It was focused and exciting and we were never overwhelmed by too many storylines. I know that Spidey is coming back.
The plot felt a little too contrived at times. And as the cast of heroes grows, it makes sense to have a bunch of those heroes in the movie. The Guardians showing up and rescuing Thor was fun and I really loved that entire scene. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain. It features 30 or so characters, each with their own complex backstories and motivations. A couple of characters that you might have expected to be right at the forefront - including an original Avenger or two - fade into the background. But Black Panther is the better movie.
