The biggest movie of 2018 has finally come out on Blu-ray as Avengers: Infinity War is available now at many retail stores.

Despite the movie being one of the biggest of all time, the Blu-ray does not include as many features as previous releases.

Before I begin talking about the Blu-ray, Avengers: Infinity War itself is a great movie that fans of action films should definitely check out.

Not only does it feature loads and loads of characters, but it arguably includes the best action sequences you will ever see in an MCU movie.

The start of the movie kicks off great as Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Bruce Banner, Wong and Spider-Man have to fend off some of Thanos' henchmen.

The action never dies down because at the end, the battle in Wakanda rivals scenes we have seen in Star Wars and the Lord of the Rings movies.

The only minor criticism I can give about this movie is that you need to have seen several other MCU movies to fully appreciate and understand what is going on.

If you are new to the Marvel movies, watching Avengers: Infinity War first is not a good idea because you won't know half of all the characters.

Anyway on to the Blu-ray itself, the picture quality is excellent as Spider-Man's suit shines brilliantly on an HDR television. The only thing I don't like about the movie's presentation is that it's still presented in the widescreen format.

This is disappointing because the whole film was filmed using IMAX cameras so I was hoping the home release of the film would have fully used up my entire TV screen.

Christopher Nolan Blu-ray films have dynamic aspect ratios so there's no excuse for this release to only be in widescreen...

However, the movie still looks great and it's even better if you bought the 4K Blu-ray. You really need to get yourself a 4K TV if you want to truly appreciate what good picture quality actually looks like!

One other thing I don't like about the Blu-ray release of Avengers: Infinity War is that all of the special features are just included on one disc instead of two discs.

For a movie as big as this, I was hoping Disney/Marvel Studios would have packed it with loads more extra footage.

The deleted scenes are boring to watch and does not add anything fresh to the movie. While the behind the scenes extras are too short as every feature is just around 5 to 10 minutes long.

It would have been cool if Disney/Marvel Studios released a new two hour documentary highlighting the 10 years of Marvel movies or something like that. That said, we do get a Director's commentary that is worth listening to.

Anyway, the Blu-ray release of Avengers: Infinity War is still enjoyable thanks to the quality of the movie itself.

It's just a tad disappointing that the special features are lacking and the movie is not presented as a full screen on most people's televisions...
