Opinion: MCU brings everything to the table once and for all to celebrate cinema in Avengers: Infinity War.
MCU brings everything almost everything to the table in Avengers Infinity War to celebrate the grandeur of cinema, it is a celebration of sorts for cinema lovers across the globe and for the first time I feel a movie has brought unity in this world which is divided by boundaries, religion and distance. This says it all how big the film is, though I am not worthy enough to review a film of this magnitude but will try still and don’t worry, no spoilers.
The movie begins with some tragic scenes for the Marvel fans as the mighty Thanos wants all the infinity stones to bring the right balance in the universe. The intentional concept of Thanos we have already seen in Kingsman: The Secret Service and Inferno but the way it is executed here is memorable and intense yet grand. Josh Brolin as the motion captured Thanos shines the most, the villian rocks hitting all the right notes and that’s why the entire film works big time. Specially the track of Thanos and Gamora played by the superlative Zoe Saldana is my favorite, it gives the film the much needed depth.
When all your favorite superheroes assemble at one place it is but natural that none of them will get proper screen time and that makes the story bigger than the superstars who are playing these roles but still Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man gets his bit and his track with Benedict Cumberbatch who plays Doctor Strange is super fun. Chris Hemsworth as Thor is very good as usual and his scenes with Chris Pratt as Star Lord are hilarious. The screen presence of Chris Evans as Captain America is impeccable and he emotes mostly through his eyes. Tom Holland as Spiderman is cute and effective while Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther are impressive in their limited screen time. Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner is at his humorous best since Thor: Rangnarok days and here also he is top class.
Many critics are complaining about the length of the film and at the same time wanted more of their favorite characters, how funny it is. Trust me the length is absolutely fine and even it ends at the right time which makes us berserk for the second part which will release next year. I want to congratulate the directors of the film, Anthony Russo and
Joe Russo for achieving a feat which looked almost impossible few years back and I want to kiss the hands of screenplay writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely for writing an absorbing drama which has action, comedy, emotion, intensity and entertainment in bulk. Go watch it guys, and be ready for some major heart breaks too. And yaa, there’s a surprise for Game Of Thrones fans also, find out. I know everyone will watch it for sure as no review matters this time and that too worldwide, now it is a film which binds the whole earth. This film will break many records, maybe Avatar is in danger too, let’s see.
Stars? I can give all the stars to this one, as colorful as the infinity stones. Surely Thanos will love it.
