Review: Avengers: Infinity War Is Marvel’s Darkest Movie Ever

When people think about Marvel films, they usually think they are in for a fun ride with lots of humor and action.

While Avengers: Infinity War does feature a lot of action, the humor is small because this is the MCU’s most serious outing to date.

While this review will not tell you any major spoilers, it’s best to know as little of the movie as possible In order to be surprised about everything that happens.

You won’t appreciate the movie if you already know all of the details going into it.

Anyway, what I will say is that Avengers: Infinity War is a huge spectacle that does not hold back when it comes to all-out action.

Pretty much the entire film is full of awesome looking action sequences that feature more than one character going at it.

Not to mention the climactic battle in Wakanda is a huge war that rivals anything that featured in The Lord of the Rings movies.

You may even see some similarities in this battle comparing it to the Droids vs Gungans war in Star Wars: Episode 1 The Phantom Menace.

The interesting thing about the movie is that the tone shifts quite a lot depending on the characters that appear on the screen.

For example, anything that involves Thanos it’s going to be quite dark and serious but things lighten up a little bit whenever you see The Guardians of the Galaxy onscreen.

Even though the film does a great job trying to show as many characters as possible, it’s still not quite long enough to give screen time to everyone.

Not to mention there are some characters that you will be surprised that aren’t even in the movie altogether for some reason or another…

However, what I admire most about Avengers: Infinity War is that it goes against the normal Marvel formula of adding quips and humor to every line of the movie.

This is by far Marvel’s darkest movie yet and that’s the only description I will give you without going into spoiler territory.

Despite enjoying the film, I will say Avengers: Infinity War is not the best ever MCU movie ever made as there are a few flaws.

I also assume some people may not even like this movie since it’s half of a movie. If you want to see a proper conclusion, you will have to watch Avengers 4 when it comes out next year.

Overall though, Avengers: Infinity War does take a few bold steps to move out of the usual MCU comfort zone and I admire Marvel Studios from pushing the envelope as far as they could with this movie.

The change in formula may not please everyone, although I was satisfied with this film and I hope to see a proper conclusion in next year’s film.

Verdict: 4/5 stars
