The Avengers 3 - Infinity War (2018)

The Avengers and their allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.

Is there any way to describe this other than awesome? Tragic, too, but amazingly well done. Surreal. It had the one thing most superhero movies seem to lack: an antagonist that doesn't come across as stereotypically evil, but has both motive and depth, and is strong enough to really have his way with the world.

Basically Thanos is an antagonist that may not be an antagonist at all - if you happen to see things from his perspective.

The one thing that annoys me a little is how strategically the characters were killed off. In groups. In pairs. Also that some of the new, just recently introduced ones, met their demise so quickly too. That and Rocketman's big mistake. If it wasn't for that one thing...

Overall though it was epic - and I don't use that word lightly. It's an all-out, all-consuming battle once again, in traditional Avengers style, but unlike previous Avenger movies it's not just on a previously unprecedented scale - one that spans not just the world but the galaxy and beyond - but also one that affects the fates of everyone involved, not to mention one where the villain actually wins. I wasn't expecting that. Sacrifice yes, but not that.

The special effects were out of this world too. The power. You'd have thought Doctor Strange could have tipped the balance with a few trips in time (why didn't he?), and Vision suddenly comes across as spectacularly weak, but overall they really put up a spectacular fight.

I'm gonna miss some of these guys, but if they had to go then I can't think of a better way. None more noble. Turned out to be a lot of spoiler tags in this post, huh? But it's within the spoiler that the biggest strength of this movie lies, and with the scale, the fates, and of course the mammoth cast packed with greats. Marvel does it again. Or wait... I think this is the first Avengers I give a full five. They really did it with this one. They really went all in. And how do they manage all those witty lines while still keeping all so serious? It's an impressive balance. Masterful work.

 rated 5/5: friggin awesome

    a 5/5 huh?? is this nearly on the Christoper Nolan's Batman level, or the likes of Watchmen (both 5/5 flicks), and do I need to see the first two before I watch this?

    Well I'm not sure the production quality and acting can be compared to theirs, and there's a LOT more special effects here, but if you are into the Marvel universe (not sure you were?) this feels like the epitome of all that their movies have been working their way towards so far. It just puts everything in place. Brings everyone together. Takes all they've built up during these recent years and: breaks it down.

    I think it has the biggest impact if you've been following pretty much all their recent movies - not just the previous Avengers but the standalone ones too, as they all tie in to the character development... but there's been a LOT of those. I'm thinking at least:

    Avengers 1 and 2
    Guardians of the Galaxy 1 and 2
    Doctor Strange
    Captain America 2
    Thor 2 and 3
    Black Panther

    ...the earlier ones don't really tie into this, but they introduce some more of these characters too. Basically the more involved you are the better this movie is, I think. It really is the 'Marvel Universe' with this one.
