No spoilers ahead
Watching the video
I know Marvel fans are already angry at me, but hey, it’s time for some reality check. Avengers: Infinity War is finally in theatres near you. The most ambitious crossover in the history of entertainment is undoubtedly Marvel Comics’ biggest movie, but not the best. It has many elements where I think the film failed to live up to its name and the hype it created.
Yes, the movie has earned a reliable 86% from 200 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer, but I still feel some things are wrong with the film. One more thought- if you love villains, you are going to adore Thanos. You’ll also like him if you’ve thought the Marvel epic is about the Avengers. Sorry, because it isn’t. It is just about Thanos, from the beginning to the end.
Okay, I have already said enough, now let’s jump to the reasons that back my title.
#1 Almost everything is predictable.
So, a few months back, I wrote an article where I mentioned superheroes who are most likely to die in Avengers: Infinity War and guess what, I got three predictions right. While watching the movie, you will also feel the same. The action is predictable for the first two hours of the film, though the ending is something I would like to appreciate.
#2 The film is, just like some countries, overpopulated.
You have a 2 hrs and 40 mins film with so many characters that you don’t even remember what someone said (if they got a chance to speak in the first place ). And the best part you don’t see is, all of the Avengers are fighting together! Hey man, what’s the point of a crossover? If I speak frankly, I felt there was so much on my plate to eat that I decided to take my drink and walk away.
#3 You really don’t know what’s going on.
It was understandable that Avenger: Infinity War will have different timelines with Thanos and Doctor Strange’s involvement, but at one point in time, it becomes too much for you to handle. The more the film progresses, the more confusing it gets and by the end, ‘more becomes way too much more to even think of.’
#4 The movie is like Civil War 10 times.
I’ll to be honest with you- the movie has good humor, but way too much action. It’s Captain America: Civil War 10 times. The only significant difference is that you will not witness ‘Superheroes versus Superheroes’ in this one.
#5 The movie will leave you dissatisfied and hungry for more.
The marketing strategy of the movie is fantastic (applause for Marvel). You will have to watch the upcoming releases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe because the end is not the end here. It will only leave you dissatisfied and more likely depressed. Another thing is that your superheroes will not get the amount of time you wanted them to spend on screen.
If you are an emotional person, you will be hooked; otherwise crooked.
I am sorry but these are just my thoughts.
I know Marvel fans will not agree with me, but c’mon. Marvel said Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 will be standalone movies, though I did not see that happening. This epic is just the start of a beginning. It will be interesting to see where Marvel goes from here.
