Daniel Ortiz Rants on: Avengers Infinity War

Published

The Avengers and their allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.”

Everyone’s most anticipated movie of 2018 has finally hit the screen. Avengers Infinity War is the most ambitious comic book adaptation of all time. When the first Avengers film came out, I wondered how would they get this movie to work with all these characters and they nailed it. Captain America Civil War came out years later and they planned to add more characters, plus a newly purchased Spider-Man from Sony. I wondered how would they get this movie to work with all these characters…NAILED IT! Then a couple years back the producers were discussing Infinity War. They mentioned getting the Avengers together, throw in Spider-Man, add all our favorite characters from Wakanda, sprinkle in some Dr. Strange and then add the Guardians of the Galaxy. I wondered how would they get this movie to work with ALL these CHARACTERS??? Tonight, I will go ahead and say, DC…you have a loooooooooong way to go! BECAUSE MARVEL FREAKIN’ NAILED IT!!!

This movie was nothing short of epic! As you may have assumed, I was very concerned about how such a cast of big-named actors; some that are used to the lead role in all of their movies would be willing to share a screen, and even in some cases take a back seat to this project. Would this work?? It did!! Even in the Marvel Universe these characters have larger-than-life-ego’s, but the writers did an amazing job giving each one of them a moment to shine, without forcing dialogue or action.

The most prosperous of all the characters in this movie was the antagonist, Thanos. His character was so enthralling and he hooked you with every word he spoke. Even his most maddening philosophies gave him such a depth in character, and where it would’ve been extremely easy to roll with him being one dimensional, the writers took their time to humanize him without sacrificing his diabolical side.

There were also a lot of cool cameos calling back past characters that were part of individual properties. It was a nice nod to see a character that could’ve easily been forgotten, but Marvel understands how instrumental they are to the personal development of their respective protagonist. One cameo was completely unexpected from one of my favorite HBO shows, especially since the person played a pretty hilarious role reversal.

The action and battle scenes in this movie were very well done. They were engaging, entertaining and each one had a high cost. You really didn’t know in which direction a win was going. I also want to point out that the CGI on Thanos was remarkable as well. There was no distraction in his look, other than how intimidating he was.

The writers did an amazing job of adding heart, humor, action, philosophy, and emotion into this film. It turned out being a lot heavier in message and emotion than I expected and will give the viewer a lot to talk about well after walking out the theater. Oh yea, and there is only one end-credit scene.

According to my rate scale, I said Jesus himself would have to direct a movie to give it this grade…and for the first time ever…

Overall Grade: A+

Jesus didn’t direct it, but this movie was truly a gem. It wasn’t a film where the protagonists rode off into the sunset. It made you feel some sort of way when it ended and left you salivating for more. I’m ready for 2019! Please like, share and subscribe for more content.
