With a running time of almost 3 hours (2 Hours 40 Minutes) Infinity War is the longest movie in the MCU and I didn’t feel like it dragged at any point. I was hooked from the very first scene and onto the last. I was shook after watching it and just devastated.
Josh Brolin kills it as Thanos which I thoroughly believe is the best villain in the MCU right now. He’s a compelling character despite being seen as a monster. He had lots of depth to his character. Throughout the film, when Thanos is on screen, I felt his presence and when he fought our heroes, I was legitimately afraid. This was essentially a “Thanos” film more so than the Avengers. All the performances were great overall, with the standouts in my opinion being Thanos, Spiderman, Wanda, and Gamora. The comedy was fantastic too. All the jokes land especially from the GOTG squad. The action sequences are phenomenal. Seeing the combination of all the heroes you love fight together with all the different combinations of unique fighting skills/powers they each have is just such a joy and so much fun to watch. Visuals were stellar.
In terms of the negatives, some characters won’t have much screen time in comparison to others but that’s a given with how many characters there are in the movie. There’s also so much that happens in this movie that there really isn’t any breathing room. This movie goes 1000000000 m/ph. Trust me. Use the washroom beforehand.
Final thoughts – Infinity War is truly a spectacle that deserves to be seen on the big screen multiple times and its insanely entertaining/rewarding. I can’t stop thinking about it and I can’t wait to see it again…and again…and again…….
Rating – ★★★★
