Infinity War Review: Action-packed ride down memory lane

Avengers: Infinity War…so much I can’t talk about because Thanos demands my silence—and because I don’t want to spoil this journey into Marvel Cinematic Universe for you.

Infinity War is an emotional rollercoaster, and a brisk walk down an action-packed memory lane, reliving all of the greatness that is Marvel Studios — quite apropos as fans celebrate its 10th anniversary.

How the Russo Brothers successfully weaved such a deep plethora of characters and story lines together into one cohesive thrill ride is a feat. Balancing those thrills and laughs with only a slight push to any political allegory is a true accomplishment in filmmaking.

If you are a fan of the Guardians, you will like this movie.

If you are a fan of the mystical world ruled by Doctor Strange, you will love this movie.

If you yearn for Spider-Man, then yes, there is something for you.

There were so many Marvel characters that I would not have been surprised if the X-Men or even Howard the Duck showed up on the screen for Infinity War.

Consider this: Some kids can put a 500-piece puzzle together. Some kids can put a 5,000-piece puzzle together. The Russos though? These guys must have been putting 50,000-piece puzzles together because the finesse with which they fit all the pieces together for this trip through the MCU is an acquired skill.

You leave knowing that the story is not all over, but with no clear clue to what will happen next.

Avengers: Infinity War is definitely worth the price of admission, following closely behind The Black Panther phenomena in drawing a whole new generation of fans into the Universe.

So very much I can’t talk about because Thanos does demand my silence, but I will say this:

The depth of filmmaking achieved by the Russo Brothers with Infinity War is an extraordinary accomplishment, and Marvel has captured all of its magic.
