At stake, as ever, is the fate of the universe. Why must it always be the universe? What's wrong with the fate of Hackensack? Doesn't anyone care what happens to South Dakota, or Denmark, or Peru?

The insubstantiality of the film isn't due to the infinite yet flimsy malleability of C.G.I. gimmickry but, instead, to the dispersion of its drama throughout the many cinematic installations set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Never has the "Marvel Cinematic Universe" seemed like more of a universe, in ways both good and bad. Infinity War-the title is almost too apt-is far from a perfect movie, but it is probably close to the best movie it could have been.

Some of the sequences are undeniably thrilling but, at about 2-1/2 hours, overkill sets in early.

"Avengers: Infinity War" isn't just a gussied-up mediocrity being widely mistaken for a good movie. It's also, at least arguably, a dangerous movie for anyone who cares about the future of American cinema.

April 27, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Maybe the quips and the punch-ups are there because they have to be, what with the film's steady parade of failure and even death. Plans fail. Character fails. Even sacrifices fail. It's not exactly refreshing, but it is bracing, and even gratifying.

Audience Reviews for Avengers: Infinity War

In an interesting decision, particularly for a genre that typically regulates villains so far to the back so that they are like bodily imperfections, pimples, present merely to be done away with, this feature favors the villain, follows his story, and leaves the heroes as secondaries. And it is interesting, making his journey to conquer the universe the focal point. So, who does one root for? There are so many heroes, 10 years of investment, no, that I, for one, felt a bit conflicted. There was enough excitement to keep me dialed in though, and I thought, "this is like a fancy meal, and this is only the set-up for the grand finale." It better be one hell of a grand finale. And if the Infinity Stone that controls time is used (ala Superman flying around Earth to bring back Lois from the dead) to resolve matters I will feel so cheated.

CONNECTING SO MANY CHARACTERS AFTER TEN YEARS OF MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE MOVIES IN ONE GIGANTIC EVENT IS NO SMALL FEAT. THE RUSSO BROTHERS NAIL IT, THOUGH. THEY DO JUSTICE TO MOST (MAYBE NOT ALL) CHARACTERS AND GIVE EACH THEIR MOMENT TO SHINE. MORE IMPORTANTLY, BY NOW WE ACTUALLY DEEPLY CARE ABOUT THIS BUNCH, AND WHAT HAPPENS HERE RIGHT FROM MINUTE ONE IS AS MASSIVE, ENGAGING, FUNNY AND DEVASTATING AS HOPED.. THE WAITING FOR AVENGERS 4 WILL BE A REAL BITCH. THAT'S HOW PEOPLE MUST HAVE FELT AFTER THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.

The problem with this Avengers movie is not that it is confusing, with its huge amount of characters and parallel plots, but sloppily written and lazy in the way it brings them together, with annoying plot holes and lacking in enough urgency to make any death really matter.
