Avengers: Infinity War

Most if not all of the Marvel Comics heroes, including Black Panther, Iron Man, Captain American, Widow, Spiderman, Thor, Guardians of the Galaxy, Hulk, Dr. Strange, and all of the others I missed (I am not a comic book person, so please be kind to me) come together to fight the greatest threat yet to the galaxy, Thanos. Thanos is crossing the galaxy in search of infinity stones; if he gets all six, he will become master of the universe, and at least 3 of the superheroes have those stones or know where they are. No spoilers here, just my thoughts. I started liking the Marvel Comics movies (or superhero movies in general) with the initial Spiderman franchise. I loved how it captured the spirit of the comic books and seeing on screen why they had such an influence on kids. I will say up first that I enjoyed the movie but was not enamored by it. There is a LOT going on; the good aspect is that the movie has the feel of representing a universe. However, I also found it to be very “busy”. There were so many stories going on and so much action that it was emotionally shallow; I found myself about 2/3 of the way thinking, “enough already”, and even then, the humor was wearing off. I also thought this to be much darker than other MC movies. This film ended in a very interesting and unusual way, which I thought was both clever and a shameless ploy to suck me into the next version. The film was funny in many places; the best is Baby Groot, who is now teenage Groot and acts exactly like a 2018 teenage boy – captured it perfectly! The film gets a thumbs-up from me for its modest entertainment value, but I felt like I did not walk away with the depth of story and the emotional impact that I usually get from such films.
