I’m not going to beat around the bush! I absolutely loved the film and it’s currently a 10/10 so no need to skim to the bottom to find out the rating …
This is going to be a review of two parts. The first of which will be completely spoiler free and then BAM we’ll get onto the juicy bits. Don’t worry though! I will give you fair warning before I start sharing all the superhero shaped secrets.
I was kind of expecting to be disappointed. Throwing that many characters into that run time and making a movie that could compare to how I imagined it in my head was going to be no easy task and I’ll admit I didn’t think they were going to pull it off … but holy shit they did!
Everything flowed perfectly. It zipped from location to location and hero to hero without being messy, rushed or a tad confusing. I knew where everyone was at any one time and they didn’t leave anyone without screen time long enough for me to forget they existed in the film *cough* Michael B Jordan *cough*
Thanos was brilliant and not at all lacking. He has motive, madness and a glimpse of humanity – the makings of a good old fashioned villain.
LOOK! There’s nothing I can tell you in this spoiler free review that you didn’t already know. Thanos is bad ass, the infinity stones are glowy and Steve Rogers is rocking a beard.
Warning 1 – Spoilers coming up in a few paragraphs.
I’m not giving it 10/10 because it’s a masterpiece or anywhere near perfection because it’s not, but it’s so enjoyable and heartfelt that you completely forget about any niggly things that might get on your nerves.
Warning 2 – GO AWAY NOW IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE MOVIE!
Okay, so if you’ve got this far then you’ve seen the film yourself OR you’re one of those spoil sports who likes to ruin things for yourself – LOSERS!
Lets just sit for a minute and think about the ending …
When I thought to myself about the direction this film could’ve gone in I wondered if maybe they’d chicken out big time and opt for sunshine and rainbows instead of sadness and surprise, but I’m so impressed that they were a bit gutsy and left us with something that actually turned out to be pretty powerful.
Loki – yeah that was pretty obvious.
Gamora – I mean it makes sense, but wasn’t too sure if they’d actually go through with it.
Vision – Again, he kind of had to …
BUT EVERYONE ELSE?!?!
I literally was sobbing so hard at spidey and Drax!!
I don’t for one second think that they’d be gone, gone forever – but for now they’re as dead as dead can be!
Black Panther? The Peters? SEBASTIAN STAN? Why you do dis to me?
Well done Marvel you managed to make me form emotional bonds with fictional characters just to rip them away from me. I feel betrayed and also so happy that you grew a pair and fucked things up for everyone.
Congrats on ruining my make up!
I sat in silence while the everlasting credits were rolling, not sure what the hell had just happened to me.
10/10 – Emotional roller coaster. PLUS I know I’m going to sob 10003043x as more the second time round .. can’t wait!
