Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War ★★½

These guys kinda ruined Capt America films for me. Making bland Tom Clancy plod fests. Some astonishing performances here even with the flat direction, specially father and daughter. Zoe Saldana’s Gamora stood out from a fairly two dimensional Guardians in tow. If anything, more tortured Thanos introspection scenes would of made for a better film. It’s a 120min film with a lot of Lord of the Rings 3rd act padding. These films still continue to suffer from some rushed floaty CGI henchmen right in the foreground. While we are taking about distractions..  If I’m focusing on Tony Stark wearing bootcut joints on a space ship then I’m  not that interested what he’s saying and what’s at stake.

It’s the best thing Avenger related since 2012. But don’t think I’ll remember enough of it to make a comparison with a Avengers film in six years time. If where still here.
