Marvel has a way of making you think they have reached the pinnacle of their success story, then they come around to shatter those past records like kitchen glassware. Avengers: Infinity War is a film that easily boasts of being incomparable using any metrics on a global scale. With this latest release, Marvel braves one of the most daring approaches at film production, juggling a cast of about 67 different comic book characters and leaving both audiences and critics alike, begging for more. My Buzz Review of Avengers: Infinity War pays homage to the sheer awesomeness that Marvel Studios has recently brought to the big screen.
Avengers: Infinity War takes the mind of a perfectly sane audience and twists it to breaking point. This tentpole takes all the basic expectations of a regular audience, then shatters it right before their eyes, whilst being unapologetic about it, leaving them totally awestruck. For the entire runtime of 160 minutes, I felt my heart racing, with an understanding that this time, things were going to be different.
There is absolutely no possible way to emotionally prepare yourself for this box office mammoth. With a perfect balance of weight, plot progression and character regularization. The Russo brothers have successfully gone where very few Hollywood directors have dared to go, making it out alive and victorious.
This pace-setting adventure serves as the first installment in the 10-year cinematic build up, with a mission to tug at the heartstrings of its audience, ultimately compelling them into an acceptance of the inevitable fates of a few of favorite characters. Avengers: Infinity War does not sugar coat or try to quench any impending fan thirst, instead, it plunges the audience into an emotional roller coaster of infinitesimal entertainment.
The entire cast delivers a brilliant performance based off a remarkably constructed, and properly synchronized script that was built for a mind blowing cinematic experience. With a brilliant A-lister cast comprising of; Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin Chris Hemsworth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Zoe Saldana, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, etc., this was a cocktail of blended talent. I would particularly commend the performances of Chris Hemsworth, Elizabeth Olsen and Josh Brolin, they are the major highlights of my Buzz Review of Avengers: Infinity War. These three momentarily shook the hall several times through out the entire run time of the film.
As expected from a film with a host of characters, there were a few issues with the pacing of the story. Nonetheless, the amount of expertise and temerity put into the film’s development allows for a seamless flow in the plot, and incredible balance in the massively shared screen time. As seen already, this film has garnered rave reviews, and mixed but mostly positive reception from its audiences, but still remains undeniably one of the most incredible franchise climaxes ever brought to the big screen.
To crown it all, my Buzz Review of Avengers: Infinity War is an account of an incredible hat-trick redemption for Marvel in the line of great villainy. First we had; Hela, then we had Killmonger, and now…Thanos. Avengers: Infinity War showcases one of the best villains I have ever seen on the big screen. Josh Brolin as Thanos breaks down his character from a complex god-like persona, into a conceivable and relatable character that completely resonates with the audience. Thanos’ motivation is valid, clearly defined and radically unhinged. This big bad takes the standards for villainy, and levels it up on cosmic scale, putting forward one of the best intergalactic villain performances since the days of the Sith Lords. Thanos puts the Avengers through their most gruesome challenge yet, forcing out the “We die here!” attitude in our favorite heroes.
On a final note, it is safe to say that Marvel Studios doled out one of the best films of their entire 10-year run, and I was seriously impressed. Avengers: Infinity War is a triumph in film production, it delivers a mind-blowing climax that left me on the edge of my seat, wondering about the level of creativity that the Marvel team wields. Let me know what you think about my Buzz Review of Avengers: Infinity War but remember; “Thanos Demands Your Silence”.
