Film Review: Avengers: Infinity War – 5*
Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is one of those films where the reviews will (hopefully) be cloaked in hints and speculation but contain no spoilers. A true Marvel fan will understand how it’s imperative to keep the plot twists close to your heart until fellow fans have had time to watch and process.
I’m still processing all the emotions – ALL the emotions that Infinity War has left me. It’s been a ten year and nineteen film journey, and as we conclude I can confirm that it’s been one hell of a ride!
EPIC. That’s the word that sprang to mind as the credits rolled, that and a million other expletives that I can’t reveal. My fellow cinema goers joined me in the laugh out loud moments, the OMGs, and the gasps. I wanted to leap from my chair and cheer every time a favourite character arrived on the screen. The way the writers integrated everyone’s stories together was pure genius. I’m a huge Guardians of the Galaxy fan, and the scenes with Thor and the Guardians were among my favourites.
The special effects were amazing, and the storyline as complex and breath taking as you’d expect from a Marvel film.
I would urge everyone to see this film. Marvel fan or not it is a couple of hours of action-packed, amusing, and heart breaking entertainment.
Any dedicated Marvel fan will understand the importance of remaining in your seat for ten minutes waiting for the credits to finish – that small nugget of additional film is worth the wait!
