I’m a little late with the review for this because I really didn’t want to say much after seeing it. This will be a short overlook, as I feel that people need to see this with as little spoilers as possible.
Was it worth it? Yes yes and yes. The film was outstanding in so many ways, BUT I wonder if someone who isn’t familiar with the other Marvel movies will be somewhat lost. There’s so many characters that its hard to keep track, but the Russos did a great job of not making it feel crowded.
The narrative played out quite well and unexpected with plenty of surprises and shocking moments. Thanos IS THE BEST MARVEL Villain yet. I literally have no complaints about the film, except that I have to wait for the next movie to see what happens.
Here’s where we get into little SPOILERS with my speculation:
– Is Red Skull the movie version of Death now or after the Soul Stone was grabbed did he revert to his former human status? I’d like to think the latter would be better, but it isn’t necessary. At least we got closure to that.
– The stones are at least drained of power, which makes me think that the snap will be reversed. The Russos did claim that the deaths will stay, so that means goodbye to Loki and Heimdall. Notice how I didn’t say any others. Here’s why. The snap only erased people from existence. It didn’t technically kill them. Gamora was sacrificed to retrieve the soul stone, so if it’s anything like the comics she wasn’t killed but instead trapped within it. And Vision, well he was a grayed out husk at the end, but Shuri probably retrieved enough to have a less emotional version of him live on without so much color. Maybe she will even use what’s left to build Jocasta or something. Either way, Vision as we know him is gone, but there is room for an offspring of sorts.
I give the movie 5 out of 5 sCrypt ratings. It made me laugh, get choked up and had me on the edge of my seat for the non stop thrill ride. What did you think of Infinity War? What do you think will happen next?
