Before I begin, this is a SPOILER-FREE review! So you can watch this and still be fine on opening weekend.
Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of 18 films spread out over a total of 10 years. A decade’s worth of Marvel superhero films in this Cinematic Universe has led up to Infinity War.
And, boy, does it hold its own.
There is SO much going on during this film. There are multiple storylines that center around a few important groups: Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Guardians (Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth), and then Captain America (Chris Evans) and those on Wakanda (Chadwick Boseman, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira). I love how directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo are able to effectively bounce back and forth between planets to ensure each plotline gets enough shine. I knew this would be a tough obstacle to overcome, with each hero thirsting for screentime, but the good Brothers didn’t fail.
