Avengers: Infinity War Review (SPOILERS AHEAD)


On Friday, April 27th, the culmination of ten years of work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was released in the form of a two hour and 40-minute movie entitled Avengers: Infinity War.

I had the opportunity to watch the movie this past Friday. This movie to me personally was the equivalent of a ride on a never-ending roller coaster. From the very start, all viewers alike had to witness the horrifying death of one of the most beloved characters in the MCU, Loki (Tom Hiddleston). This moment brought me to tears as well as many other movie-goers in the theater and was a very bold move from the Russo Brothers to start the movie with this heart-wrenching moment.

From this point on, there were many memorable moments, laughs, and quite a bit of tears as many of the beloved characters had passed. At the conclusion of the movie during the post credit scene, viewers were hinted of what is to come in the fourth installment of Avengers coming out in 2019.

Now for my thoughts- the visuals in this movie were absolutely incredible! I happened to see the movie in 3D, which I personally believe completely immersed me into the settings of the movie. The special part about Infinity War is that all of the shots were filmed with IMAX Cameras, the very first movie of its kind. This truly helped the audience connect with the characters and the screen.

The third installment of the Avengers included almost ALL of the characters introduced over the past ten years of the MCU- including the majority of the original characters, to the newer ones such as Spiderman (Tom Holland) and Black Panther/T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman). While there were so many characters, it was not overwhelming or too confusing, as the Russo Brothers organized the plot in a way where it would help viewers be able to focus on one thing.

One thing that I wish could be improved is the balancing of lines for each character. Some characters who I personally believed deserved more lines, for example Captain America (Chris Evans), did not receive the amount of lines throughout as I believe he should have due to him being an extremely important character to the MCU.

Overall, this movie was absolutely outstanding to me. I would rate it as a 4.5/5 stars. If you are interested in seeing Avengers: Infinity War, you can purchase tickets in theater or on Fandango.com.
