Avengers: Infinity War
Avengers: Infinity War: my review
The Russo brothers once again prove that in the world of Marvel they move most efficiently from all creators. The review does not contain spoilers.
The arrival of Thanos to Earth has already been announced in the Avengers of 2012. He is behind the attack on New York, and that was the motivation for all heroes to unite and act together. Each of the subsequent films brought us closer to this moment. In the end, Thanos has come and does not take prisoners. We could already see this in the scene presented during last year’s Comic Con, in which the Guardians of the Galaxy encounter the Thunderbolt drifting in space. From the arrival of the destroyer to the Asgardian ship, the whole film begins. It is an extremely strong and very emotional opening. In order not to reveal too much, I can say that the trailer is one big cheat that only serves to trigger a discussion about the plot and the characters. However, this is one big fake. The fates of the heroes in the film are completely different. A similar treatment was applied by Disney in the promotion of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. There are not some shots in the movie at all.
Avengers: Infinity War in terms of the scenario is refined in every way. Dialogues are not filled with pathetic talks about sacrifice. The film does not hit such moralizing tones. The conversations are interspersed with humor, which means that almost three hours in the cinema pass quickly. Each of the heroes gets enough time on the screen to present themselves. This is not a telegraphic shortcut. There are also no situations that would seem artificially created just to let a hero appear on the screen for a moment.
This serious tone is not forced either. When it is supposed to be serious, the creators maintain the atmosphere without unnecessary pounding. Of course, there are also a lot of humorous scenes from which Marvel’s productions are famous, but it is next to the film Captain America: Winter soldier one of the most serious productions.
He also impresses with the flare of special effects that has been used in this production. Most of the scenes were created using the green screen, but you do not feel it. They do not overwhelm the viewer. They are so well done that at some point man turns off thinking and just observes a great spectacle of explosions, magic and strange creatures.
Josh Brolin in the role of Thanos is brilliant. I am fully convinced by his motivation to liquidate half the population of the entire galaxy. This fits in the last trend in which the villains in Marvel’s films have motivations understandable to the viewer, and they do not kill just for the fun of taking someone’s life. Thanos has a plan that is logical in his head. He is for a savior who will save the entire universe. And it drives him. Avengers: War without borders in terms of acting has no weak link. Each of the actors is up to the task. I like that Chris Hemsworth still remains in the role of cool and sarcastic Thor from the previous part of his solo adventures. His meeting with Star Lord, or Chris Pratt, is also great. A real duel of the male ego. A similar skirmish is between Iron Man and Doctor Strange. It adds to the spice of the whole story, and the gentlemen do not spare “courtesy” even in the moment of destruction.
Russo brothers decided that not only will we see on screen almost all heroes from Marvel’s films, but also the action will not be limited to only one or two locations. Our heroes travel the galaxy, fight in various places around the world. However, I will not reveal the location to spoil the fun. It is diverse.
Avengers: A war without borders is the best Marvel film ever made. Cap covers all previous ones, including the Black Panther. He will shed tears from the eyes of many a fan, and not in a cheap way. The decisions taken by the heroes will be difficult. Some are hard to understand at first glance. However, after analyzing the possibilities, we come to the conclusion that there was no other way out. The only question that the viewer poses after the screening is: “How will they get out of it now?”, Because I do not hide that it will not be so easy. MCU is changing before our eyes and nothing will be as it once was. And this is probably the biggest plus of this film. The creators are not afraid of bold and difficult moves. Many fans will be shocked, but we love such movies the most. We all probably have enough stories, the completion of which we can predict in the fifth or tenth minute. A horse with a row of people who could predict the ending that the Russo brothers serve us.
There is, of course, one scene after the subtitles and it is worth waiting for it, because one long-sighted character appears in it and it is she who announces another MCU movie and it’s not about Ant-Man and the Wasp.
