The latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry, “Avengers: Infinity War,” broke many dazzling box office records in its opening weekend. It grossed over $640 million internationally, which grants it the title of the biggest opening weekend of all time without inflation. Disney beat its own record for “The Force Awakens” from a couple of years ago. In addition, this film has become a critical darling, being certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and stabilizing at 84%. However, the Herald felt differently about the recent blockbuster.

The entire marketing for the film argued that it was the culmination of the ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it felt like it was just another stepping stone to the next film. There was a clear lack of finality and resolution with the film, even though the film lasted two hours and 40 minutes. In my opinion, this film was a disappointment and regression back into previous films in the series that were not as polished as “Black Panther” and “Thor: Ragnarok.” The film failed to be the ultimate culmination it was marketed to be and, at least for me, did not meet my high expectations.

The major area of issues stemmed from the ending, as many of the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy characters disintegrate into dust after Thanos achieves his goal of balance. The moment Black Panther and Spiderman disintegrated, I knew that the deaths from Thanos’ snap were only temporary. No one of importance could really have died in the film, as the actors have signed contracts and are set to appear in sequels. It made for a very apathetic viewing experience during the end of the film. The deaths were cheap and the character development was nonexistent.

As for action, there was a clear lack of inventive fighting scenes and impressive cinematography. No scene made enough of an impression to be worth remarking about. “Infinity War” also lacked creative ways to utilize character powers, excluding Spiderman and Doctor Strange. Nothing screamed epic or stood out in any fashion, but there were not many moments that had me super bored, in the film’s defense. The Russo’s adequately balance all the major characters to make a somewhat cohesive film, but “Infinity War” did not need all of the characters. Marvel fans asked for another big team-up movie, but I am pretty sure that no one asked for this film specifically.

“Avengers: Infinity War” makes for a somewhat comprehensible, bland film that pleases many but most definitely does not impress all. If you enjoy plot holes and recognizing characters that are better utilized with other directors, this film may be for you.
