The culmination of 10 years of MCU movies, and it doesn't disappoint.

Where shall I start? Ten years ago, The Marvel movies start coming out. although I dislike a few movies, I never left me bored. After see "Avengers: Infinity War," I probably see the Marvel movies go on another 10 years. As the movie started the Avengers broke up at the end of "Captain America: Civil War," and now with a new threat with Thanos who going after power stones and the Avengers must get back together to stop him, but they need help from Dr. Strange, The Guardians of the Galaxy, and a few other superheroes. I can't reveal the ending but that ending will go on into Avengers 4. And stay for a scene in the end of credits for an appearance from characters you haven't seen in years. I'll say it once and I'll say again. You need to stay for the final credits. I can't stress that enough.

It's never a good sign when watching an action movie elicits feelings of boredom, and Avengers: Infinity War managed a scenario I've been able to avoid since seeing the third Tobey Maguire Spider-Man movie, when the two main characters decide to strike every beam in the city during a battle scene.

Is it coincidence that the two movies are both comic book movies?

For the sake of full disclosure, I've never considered myself the best comic book superhero fan. I very much enjoyed the first Avengers movie, as well as the first Iron Man movie, but I've found myself suffering from Marvel fatigue, and haven't seen the middle Thor movie or the two Ant-Man movies, and I've had the Tom Holland Spider-man movie from Netflix for almost a month now, unwatched. You can read my reviews of the movies I have seen by clicking on my name to get a better idea of my enjoyment level of them.

Because I'm not a Marvel super-fan, I'm probably not the target audience for this movie. So then maybe it's no surprise that I didn't really enjoy it all that much, because throwing every character from the universe into a blender and pouring it into this smoothie of a movie just didn't work for me.

The plot is very basic. The characters have a hard time doing anything original because they're largely doing what they've done before, and their outcome at the end wasn't as poignant as I'm sure that was intended, simply because you don't believe that there is any finality to it all, especially given the financial considerations surrounding their fates as shown on-screen. I just wasn't invested in the movie or its characters when the credits rolled (and yes, I did stay for the post-credit sequence, which was probably one of the highlights of the movie). I did find the scene between Thanos and Gamora effective. It's probably the best scene of the movie.

Plot aside. Character non-development aside. Let's look at the movie from a technical angle to see if there are some redeeming values there. Visually, the movie works. The CGI is everywhere, of course, but the cinematography is lackluster. Compare this to Blade Runner 2049 to see what a good cinematographer can do, even with an effects-heavy sci-fi movie. The audio was not impressive at all. I watched this movie in a brand new Atmos-equipped movie theater that was just calibrated. The Atmos demo clips that I'm very familiar with were all very effective in creating an immersive environment, with some really good bass kick that could rattle your innards when called upon. Given the action that happens in this movie, this should have been an excellent demonstration of that system's capabilities, but while there wasn't anything to complain about, there wasn't anything to brag about either. Maybe another example of quantity getting in the way of quality.

I'm holding out the possibility that my opinion of this movie will improve upon future viewings. I'm guessing my opinion will change once they wrap the story up with the next Avengers movie (which was called Infinity War: Part II for a time), so we can all see what ends up happening (and what really happened, if that is different than what we've seen so far). At this point, I feel like they need to put the Marvel universe to bed if this is the best they've got, and maybe next summer's Avengers movie will do just that.

This movie was a good expansion on the Avengers series, and well made. Marvel did a wonderful job of incorporating stories from almost every main character's background. It was nice to finally see the Guardians and the Avengers meet. Please watch this movie if you are a fan of Marvel movies, and more specifically, the Avengers.
