Avengers: Inifinity War

Post by Nyarlathotep » Wed May 02, 2018 3:43 am

I liked Avengers despite not really expecting to. But not because of the plot. It was really a standard issue big dumb summer block buster movie. What saved it was the characters; the characters have always been a strong suit in Marvel movies and they had so many of them that you had them split off into small groups doing different things. And they managed to hit just the right pairings to make things interesting.

Iron Man and Doctor Strange for instance, with Spider Man trying to insert himself between those two giant egos, this was some of the best parts of the movie. Could have watched 2 hours of just that. Or Thor and Rocket Raccoon, an oddball pairing, but one that was vastly entertaining.

The weak point is that it had so many things going at once that everything got kind of short shrift. But it was so entertaining watching the interplay between all of these characters who have never encountered each other on screen before that it was still worth watching
