This movie was very disappointing. It felt disjointed in multiple parts, which caused it to not flow as well as it should have. First, I have to say that I'm really tired of seeing time travel used to fix problems. It has gotten old. It feels like lazy writing to me, and it is messy. With time travel, nothing is permanent, and anything can be corrected. Next, many actions in the movie seemed contradictory. They are worried about changing the timeline, but it gets changed anyway, and there seems to be no effect. Next, if the stones create the reality that we experience, then how did destroying them not annihilate the universe? Besides that, just because the stones were destroyed, it doesn't mean it's over without time travel. The law of conservation of energy states that energy cannot be created or destroyed. The energy in the stones had to go somewhere. In fact, they extracted that energy from Jane Foster in the movie. Couldn't they have tracked the energy down and created new stones? Instead, we see them hop around time act like they only have one shot, then obviously lose that one shot, and realize they have more chances because time travel. Just enough Pym Particles for one more jump? Jump back and get more.
Then, the final fight isn't even with the original Thanos, but his past self. The original dies without much resistance. Yeah, he was weakened from destroying the stones, but killing him as a worn out useless man was a total letdown. Speaking of worn out and useless, what the heck were they thinking with Thor? He goes through all of those movies, learning to be the leader he should be for his people, and then just sinks into a pity party when he fails. I've always thought how a person handles failure shows the man inside, and Thor is a disappointment. Boo hoo, Thanos won. Well screw the Asgardians that survived. They can fend for themselves. Next, what as the deal with Captain Marvel? She just seemed like she was thrown in with no real purpose. Just pops in the save the day twice and that's it. Then, the scene with all the women together was just too SJW for my taste. It was just randomly thrown in there with no plot purpose, just to make a social statement. My wife was annoyed by that as well.
Finally, the movie ending takes place 5 years later, and they didn't go back and fix the fact that people had dissapeared for 5 years. That is so much of a mess, it isn't even funny. Civilazion will be totally different. Many people will have moved on, married new people, made major life changes, and then all of a sudden the movie wants us to belive that half of the world comes back and everything is ok? Great, you come back to life after 5 years, your job is gone, your property is gone, your wife is remarried and another guy is raising your kids. Nothing has changed in your mind, but everyone that was left behind was psychologically messed up, and now there are messed up even more as they have their world turned upside down again. All while those that come back only remember dusting and coming right back. So, are all future movies going to deal with a messed up society, or are we just going to pretend none of this happened? Maybe we will be in the alternate timeline that was apparently created when Thanos traveled through time and got dusted. Then are the dead Avengers from that timeline still a live? Again, time travel is lazy and messy. I spent over a decade getting to know this universe, and now I don't even know what is what anymore. This is great time to just stop watching the MCU and move on.
It was ok. I got bored during parts of it. It was a rehash of the previous movie. Kids want to play with LEGOs. Parent is an obstacle to that. Looks like all is lost, then it all works out. yay. . . It's really sad. I totally loved the first movie. It was like they didn't have any original ideas in this one. The names of objects in the first one was great, like Kragle and the Sword of Exact Zero. The names in this on were significantly less inventive. They sounded like they were derived by a committee of adults rather than a kid. I still enjoyed it, but I'm not counting the days until I can get the blu ray like I was last time.
This is a great movie. Far exceeded my expectations. The characters have depth and propose. The world is interesting. The story is great. You care about the story and characters, plus you get great action. The main character is powerful, yet she isn't perfect. She has mystery, growth, failure, and progression. When she enteres a situation there's no guarantee she's going to succeed. I can't say enough good things about this movie. It far exceeds the stupid that gets fed to us on a regular basis. At the end of the movie you want a sequel not just because you want to see how it ends, but because you genuinely care what happens to these characters. I can't say that about the current major franchises with upcoming sequels. I am eagerly awaiting to see if this movie succeeds enough for a sequel. I really hope it does.
This is the movie that killed star wars. I love strong female characters like Ripley or Sarah Connor, but Rey is not a strong character. She's a Marry sue. Holdo didn't seem like any admiral I've ever seen in a movie before. She didn't dress like one. she didn't act like one. I could go on, but I won't. These are not strong women. the comedy elements looked more at home in a spaceballs movie than star wars. finn's suit leaking everywhere, the awful iron scene, poe mocking hux. No, this is just poor writing and an attempt to be funny in the wrong way. it didn't fit. Seriously I was in total disbelief about the iron. luke has been ripped to shreds like he didn't matter. they built up snoke only to get rid of him before we actually found out anything about him. phasma is a joke of a character. chewie has no purpose. the fleet chase scene was beyond stupid. seriously? the first order couldn't hyperspace right on top of them? THeir fighters couldn't catch the fleet and wipe them out? it was like they didn't even try to write a good movie. If you want to shove sjw crap down my throat, you can at least make a good story to go with it. The force awakens at least had redeeming qualities. This garbage was one of the worst movies I've ever seen in my life, it was not the actors' fault.
Started off depressing or I would have rated it higher. It was funny as it progressed. The ending was good. And please stop taking your kids to see this. Dear God! I would not let my kids see this even if they were 17.
