I Liked the Movie Too Much to Write My Avengers Infinity War Review

VANAPHASE™ the Vanadium powerhouse!

I honestly liked the movie far too much to write an objective Avengers Infinity War Review

I took a half day off from my day job to watch Avengers Infinity War as soon as I possibly could, and I have tickets for opening night to watch it with 22 of my friends, and also going with my company to watch it Friday morning on the company’s dime, and I still bought another ticket to watch it in IMAX after watching it today. To say I love the movie is an understatement, and I cannot give this movie anything but a perfect score. Luckily Sean is not as emotional and way more professional than I am, so be sure to read his review. This piece is just going to be a thorough and personal appreciation for the magic I just watched.

Avengers Infinity War is the 19th film is the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is the culmination of 10 years of filmmaking. Characters from every movie have come together to fight a threat that is greater than they have ever faced, and it truly requires every character to combat it. The culmination is more than just actors, it is a combination of worlds, of stories, of visuals, and of time. I watched Iron Man when I was 20, and I was the only person in my group of friends who knew Tony Stark was Iron Man. I was the only one of my friends who knew James Rhodes is War Machine. 10 years later, these characters are household names. It’s normal to see adults and professionals wearing some sort of apparel or accessory of their favorite superhero and not be considered weird. And in many ways, those of us who were fans of the comics before it got big, got big because of it.

Avengers Infinity War feels like a diploma or degree. It’s a sign of approval and proof of concept that all those years are more than what they may have seemed. I’m not trying to say I was bullied or anything because I liked comics, I wasn’t that type of nerd. In fact, I’m probably made fun of more for not being nerdy enough because I don’t know issue numbers, artists, and writers of every issue I read. But to experience and share the power of the stories, the impact of the characters, and what they represent with others and through this film is a landmark moment.

I’m a casual comic reader, and Civil War is hands down my favorite Arc or Event of all stories. Not only did I become engulfed in the moral and philosophical dilemmas, but I used the events and issues in Civil War to write a bunch of papers in college and my professors gave me raving compliments. Civil War got me my first A in college. Captain America Civil War disappointed me. Not that it wasn’t an amazingly made film or anything, but it just didn’t embody the impact Civil War had on me as a fan or as a person. Avengers Infinity War did.

Avengers Infinity War perfectly embodies the experience of reading multiple comic books to get the whole story. I got the same feeling of reading an issue of Civil War then reading Amazing Spider-ManAvengers, New Avengers, Iron Man, etc. then to the next issue of Civil War. The Russo Brothers captured that unexplainable feeling of a story you don’t want to end but need to know how it ends, that we hope to experience binge watching something. They took the biggest cinematic story of all time and doled it out in bite-size issues that only make you want more. Plus, you only have to pay a movie ticket’s price instead of buying each and every issue. I loved Civil War but going to the comic shop every week to buy issues was brutal on my teenage wallet. It’s still brutal on my adult wallet.

I think the best analogy to explain my appreciation and enjoyment of Avengers Infinity War would be the opposite of what the build-up of Episode I lead too. Avengers Infinity War was 10-years in the making and is a truly worthy destination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s decade-long journey and a spectacular beginning of the next one.  There’s not much more I can say without giving anything away, and I do not want to deprive anyone of any experience of Avengers Infinity War. But I will say Avengers Infinity War is one of those stories you will revisit over and over again. Thank you Marvel, Marvel Studios, Disney, The Russo Brothers, Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and everyone who was a part of creating this experience.
