    1. But when Spider Man , Black Panther , Mantis , Drax , Bucky , Dr. Strange , Star Lord , Nick Fury and Maria Hill all die , that’s pretty bad.

    1. They may have said that, but Avengers 4 is Infinity War: part 2 in all but name. They must have realised their mistake and tried to course correct. But they messed that up as well when they announced GotG Vol.3, Spider-man Homecoming 2, Black Panther 2 etc. The only film they did not announce (which will still happen) is Doctor Strange 2, with Feige saying the reason for that was because of A:IW. I mean, come on. Surely he should have used that logic for the other films announced already as well.

      It makes their push for ‘No spoilers’ to be quite the joke when they already ruined the surprises with their announcing of future films post IW.

    2. So you didn’t find Yondu’s death sad at all? o.O That was by far the most emotional moment in the films right now. That ending was completely redundant due to the slate of movies announced for post IW/A4.

  1. Guys, relax. Dr. Strange knows what he’s doing. 1 out of 14 million. Star Lord didn’t ruin it, it was meant to happen.

    1. Here me out here. What if…they had attempted to do that exact plan…on Earth…where they would have been surrounded by allies. A plan that almost succeeded except with if nothing else 2-3 people to keep starlord out of the way. Replace the final scene with everyone flailing ineffectually at Thanos with the scene where 2 competent people and 3 questionably competent people almost get the glove off of Thanos except instead its 4 competent people and 3-5 questionably competent people getting the glove off while everyone else helps them. Add more time for character interactions, the good guys win unless Thanos uses his actual power/uses the glove more than once per stone. Best of all, skip some of the useless flailing in the more mediocre fight scenes and add more of the character dialogue this movie was missing. The Strange/Stark meeting was good but their personality clash was getting old. Thor/Quill was just disappointing. Thor/Rocket was just meh. Rogers spoke to NOBODY new. T’Challa spoke to NOBODY new. Thor/T’Challa would have been an amazing interaction. The king who lost half his people (supposedly. I don’t think anyone noticed that Thanos killed half the asguardians and then destroyed their spaceship around them) and the king who might have to sacrifice his country in order to save the universe. The writers had so many opportunities for actual humor instead of having an immature idiot get puffed up because a more muscly man was in the vicinity of his girlfriend while a tree was being a teenager… Quill was great in guardians 1, great in guardians 2 and just mediocre in this movie.

      Legitimately, the best character in the movie was Thanos. The only person with a real conflict that was tastefully presented. Quill having to make the decision about whether or not to shoot Gamora took too long to continue to mean anything and the decision meant nothing in the end anyway. Gamora spent the entire damned movie as a damsel in distress with maybe two shots (shots not scenes) where she was actually doing something and ended up having her happy little rant at Thanos (that was drawn out too long again). But the rant displayed Thanos’ patience with the “daughter” who hated him, even as it showed his grief at having to sacrifice her. Speaking of drawn out…Bucky-dissolved in a second. T’Challa-dissolved in a second. EVERYONE ELSE-dissolved in a second. Parker? takes 2-3 minutes to dissolve for NO REASON other than to milk emotions out of Stark. It was the most contrived cinema feels bullshit I have seen in years.

  2. If you havn’t seen the movie go watch it. Most people disagree with Chris’s rating. In my opinion its easily an A – A+

    1. Infinity War is a good movie but it is no Shawshank or Godfather. I agree with Jeeses99 and say 8-8.5 at most (I’m also a pretty harsh critic)

  3. The movie is great. But the movie felt rushed but not because of the pace but because of the abundance of characters. I really loved Thanos because he was not a bad guy but a guy with some messed up ideals. He doesn’t want power for himself but to balance the universe.

    1. All I’ll say is that infinity war was movie that had so much potential that wasted there characters and just a bunch of jokes and thanos was a wasted villian that ain’t have no backstory or explanation to his motives and bunch of plot holes in the film.

    2. KILLNATION123 I can officially now confirm that you haven’t seen the movie, if you think Thanos had no backstory and explanation to his motives. Also the fact that you think it was just a bunch of jokes

  4. B+?
    How can this be? I’m not sure what you mean by “out of character”
    They acted exactly how I expected them to. Your way off on this one.
    10 out of 10 for me.

    1. I Web Everything You know its fake death and he will be resurected because he has upcoming movie and is most profitble charachter together with Black Panther? None of them are dead.

    2. Joshua The master of squids it’s not the point that he’s coming back dumbass. It’s the fact that he’s a fucking kid and he’s going through this. He was scared for his life and couldn’t do anything. The entire point of the ending is not of them “dying”. It’s the fact that the Avengers lost and all of them are traumatized. You can see it in their faces. They feel little hope now.

    3. I felt annoyed with that scene. They made it too obvious that they are trying to play on your emotions. Everyone else was like 2 seconds then *poof* into dust. With him they dragged it out too much.


      Peters never gonna forget that moment of him dying. Ever. What made that worse for him was that he was just a kid, and his spidersense basically told him he was going to die, while no one else knew it was coming. He wouldve been my age.

      Im telling you right here right now. I would be traumatized if I knew that I was gonna die in a few seconds. No one would ever wanna know that.

      I know its fucked up to say this, but its like saying to a rape victim “AWE ITS OKAY! YOURE STILL ALIVE!” ya know? Its not the fact that youre gonna be alive. Its the fact that you experienced DYING.

    1. Exactly, it is all opinions. I am not a huge fan of either MCU movies or the Star wars movie, but if I was to pay to watch one of them again I would choose the last Jedi over Infinity war, but that is just my opinion

  5. I really don’t agree with Chris’ rating. The movie I watched was an undoubtable A+ but I get that some people enjoy certain films for than others. But I was surprised when Chris (a long time fan of the MCU and superheroes in general) gave Infinity War a B+. The movie was everything I wanted it to be and more.


    When Starlord finds out Gamora is dead his first reaction would be to flip out and selfishly hit Thanos. We’ve seen this before in GOTG Vol.2 where he immediately blasts Ego when he finds out he killed his mother. So the argument that certain characters do things that don’t coincide with their normal behaviour doesn’t sit well with me. Doctor Strange says giving the time stone up was the only way which meant there was a reason he saved Tony’s life which means he must have some sort of plan. Think back to the 14 million possibilities. As for the movie shifting tone, it really wasn’t noticeable unlike films like Justice League but then again what did you expect with 50+ characters in the mix? For me, the movie was always quite comedic but darker in some places. It is easily the best MCU film and if it feels like I’m going on a rant, I’m not. I’m just a triggered fanboy with way too much free time on his hands.

    Keep up the reviews Chris. I enjoy them but this rating seriously irks me.

    1. Ser Severus But Chris has given Movies like Deadpool and Captain America: Civil War an A+ when they’re also Not as Good as Masterpieces like The Shawshank Redemption, The Godfather and The Shining so I suppose his Rating System is a bit Off.

    2. Ser Severus the dark knight is overrated, you’ve really done a huge diservice to yourself by including it

    3. not really, he gave deadpool an A+ and also Civil war the avengers. Infinity war does deserve that place for what it acomplished.

    4. I just watch it today, yeah, im late.. but i just wanted to say, i have so much hate with starlord. Its all his fault. But yeah, well, actually, much of like, its the writers fault. Having said that, I cant wait to watch the next chapter of this movie.

  6. B+? Are you shitting me dude? This movie deserves an ‘A’. It didn’t feel rushed, pacing and interactions really make sense and not wasted at all. I really enjoyed it. There migt be flaws, but they’re so minor that you won’t really feel them coz of the epicness factors. Emotional factors also feels very natural not made-up.

    1. Cosmoman78 watch his spoiler review. He did say he liked this movie better after the second time watching it. But it really his fault for making this review after seen it once

    2. Cosmoman78 it did feel rushed. With so many characters it’s hard not to. It’s still a great movie but it definitely has some pacing problems.

  7. Instead of wiping out half of the population of the universe why didn’t Thanos just double the universe’s resources?

    1. Because people will just use the doubled resources and think that they’re set for life, eventually leading to all resources diminished quicker than they would’ve gone without Thanos.

    2. Probably not that easy “doubling resources” just means literally cloning the universe. And as already mentioned matter can’t be created

  8. Just came from seeing it all these weeks later. Chris’s view on superhero movies have changed and I think he’s trying too hard to sound professional and not like a fanboy. I personally have not liked roughly half of the MCU films. Some are okay, but just a few are awesome. But I will admit because it must be said, this is one of the best superhero movies ever! I’m not ashamed to admit that I loved a superhero flick.
