Avengers: Infinity War – Frame the Ticket
The film on today’s agenda is Avengers: Infinity War. This movie is the culmination of the first 10 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or MCU, for short. It has been widely anticipated since 2012, when its villain, Thanos, was first introduced.
The film is all about how Thanos is trying to get all of the infinity stones so he can wipe out half of all life in the universe and the MCU heroes have to band together to try to stop him. Avengers: Infinity War is grandiose in nature and follows a few different teams of heroes as they go through different tasks to try to stop Thanos. That is where the film fails, even if it is just a slight fail in this case. It is so big that there are some plot holes and ignorances of some events in recent films of the MCU.
That being said, the directors and writers did such a great job juggling so many different characters and giving them their time in the light that I found myself not being too terribly bothered by those plot holes.I do believe that each character had some of their best performances since they’ve been in the MCU.
The action pieces all looked beautiful and I was giddy and on the edge of my seat each battle. There is so much that happens in this 160 minute movie, however, that it feels like we get little chance to catch our breath before the next thing happens.
Infinity War has a story that keeps you involved the entire time. In my theater, people were clapping throughout the film, which doesn’t normally happen. While that was a good sign, it did make it difficult to catch some moments during the clapping. As good as the story is, it does feel like the first half of a story and, as such, didn’t leave me fully satisfied in the end. Close to satisfied, but not fully satisfied.
In spite of the film not leaving me fully satisfied and its containing some plot holes, which are probably due to just how large in scope the film is, I still enjoyed it enough that the negatives don’t bother me to the point where it would drag the overall grade of the movie down.
I’m going to Frame the Ticket for Avengers: Infinity War.
I loved this movie and can’t wait for what’s going to happen next in the MCU. Also, you will want to stick around until the very end of the credits.
