The Avengers: Infinity War SPOILER Review

Because of the nature of the movie, I honestly don't know how to write a review for this without leaking important information that might even spoil the movie a little bit - so I won't.

8/10

To sum it up...

I wouldn't say it's Marvel's best movie (Black Panther still takes that credit), but it's definitely up there among the greatest. And this is coming from someone who's been critical of MCU whose only favorites were Black Panther and Winter Soldier.

There's a fun thing going on in Super Hero movies: Ostensibly, a movie can be a Super Hero movie but done as a different genre. These tend to be my favorite. Examples

Batman: Dark Knight: Crime Drama
Captain American: Winter Soldier: International spy thriller
Logan: Western
Guardians of the Galaxy: Space Opera with music nostalgia.
Deadpool: Comedy.

But to make a Superhero movie that is great is difficult. Characters that should be OK when the story is over, etc.
limits excitement. But Avengers 3 pulls it off. I've never seen anything on this level before. It is a complex story with diverse characters that were likely super hard to integrate.

How can I ever watch a Thor or Ironman movie again after something this audacious and bombastic? It was spectacular. 10/10.
Avengers does it. It
