I went and saw Avengers: Infinity War again today and I can honestly say it was as good as it was the first time, except without all of the surprises this time around. The action was superb, the emotional beats actually got me, well, emotional, and the jokes were just as hilarious, maybe even more so considering that there were a few jokes that I missed. The only downsides to seeing it twice is you can really feel that two and a half hour run time.
Oh my goodness, this is a veeerryyy long movie. I’ve seen long superhero movies before (The Dark Knight is one of my favorite movies and it’s the exact same run time as Avengers: Infinity War) but this film really feels long with all of the different subplots going on. As the scenes jump from here to there and then back around to somewhere it’s just a sometimes agonizingly long lead-up to an imminent ending.
But if you haven’t seen the movie don’t let me dissuade you from wanting to see it. It’s a ridiculously fantastic film that has some very awesome action scenes and some downright shocking moments that you won’t see coming. And Thor is AWESOME! (And Doctor Strange, and Spider Man, and Star-Lord, and Scarlet Witch, and Iron Man…you get the point.) 🙂
All in all, after seeing it a second time my new rating for the movie is 92 out of a 100 and 4.3 out 5 stars. Avengers: Infinity War was everything that I imagined it would be and more and that’s all I wanted.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
