Infinity War or Infinity Bore

Marvel’s most recent installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” was released on April 27. It currently has a score of 86 on Rotten Tomatoes. But was it worth the price of a movie ticket?

The MCU has undergone 10 years of film storytelling and this movie is a statement so that everyone in the world will show up for what is an extraordinarily unconventional story.

It, by design makes no sense unless you have watched almost all of the other MCU feature films. One cannot be a casual viewer while watching this film. You have to be engaged with every second, and that is one of the best things about film storytelling. There is only committed in this film.

The production is near perfect. The days of the poor Avengers special effects are long gone, and every pixel is polished with skill. Visually, it is a peak marvel movie.

The writers and directors worked very hard to make something that did not feel beholden to rules. They will stop the movie for a minute to do a gag. Every joke that could be made, was made. These writers figured out how to make the 18th movie in this universe feel fresh and unique. It is funny when it needs to be, and very heartwarming or cry inducingly sad when it wants to be.

Fans were scared before the premier that so many characters in the movie was going to make it diluted or not let some of the characters shine. However, these talented actors, screenwriters and the director somehow gave every character their moment to shine. In “Captain America: Civil War” every character we had come to love and some new faces all fought, and it was some of the most terrifying, yet beautiful things in superhero history. In “Avengers: Infinity War” that feeling is amped up by 1000.

An untitled Avengers film comes out next year, and it will be interesting to see how much the MCU changes within the next year. But for now, “Avengers: Infinity War” was a spectacular movie and anybody and everybody should see it. It was definitely worth the money.
