I was one of the first human beings in the world to see Avengers: Infinity War. Man, it feels weird (and awesome) to say that. Last night I attended the World Premiere of Infinity War with the cast and filmmakers. I spent over two and a half hours watching what will clearly go down as one of the best superhero films to ever be made – and I am still processing it. So much happened. Tears were shed, laughs were laughed, and don’t even bring up the chills – so many chills. This Marvel fan girl had literal goosebumps the majority of the movie. There were moments I screamed, gasped, and I might have jumped out of my seat. You can walk in to Infinity War expecting it to be the best Marvel film ever – and you will STILL be blown away.
Pay attention guys. And whatever you do, don’t purchase a drink at the theater unless you have a strong bladder. The last thing you want to do is get up and miss something. I haven’t even processed everything I have seen yet. Every single scene is an important one to the story. This movie starts off strong and just keeps going. There is never a lull, never a dull moment. I took in so much information, and I am positive that I missed things. I am really looking forward to going back and watching Infinity War again. Epic. It is EPIC.
Everyone Has a Purpose
No spoilers here (don’t worry, I will be posting a spoiler review next week), but every hero who is back, is a favorite of mine. And they are all really important to the story. With this many cast members, it would be easy for some to lose their place. You know, someone walks in and waves “hey guys” and then mossies on about his (or her) business. But we don’t see that here. Everyone we see has a purpose. Nothing seems forced. As you know, some characters have not met each other yet. Have no fear – those interactions were done right, if you ask me. One of my favorite scenes is when a certain group of heroes meet the Guardians of the Galaxy.
The acting is on point as well. I mean, many of these actors have been playing their character for years. But there are no slips, no mess-ups, no stumbles. Every one is perfection. EVERYONE. It was great to finally see a lot of Thanos in action and I assure you, Josh Brolin fills those big shoes! Yes, this movie is long, but it will not seem long enough. I was not distracted once, and in fact, I felt like I had only sat down an hour before when the credits started to roll.
Nothing is Cheap
There is no cheap humor, there is no cheap love story, and there are no cheap deaths. Oops, I said no spoilers in this post. But I will say if there are deaths, which I neither confirm nor deny, they aren’t done cheaply. But hmm….are there deaths? Gee, I just don’t know. Looks like you will have to head to theaters to find out for sure. Oh, and be sure to sit through the credits – you wouldn’t want to miss anything, would you?
A Reaction From the Red Carpet
If you watch my weekly YouTube Live session, then you know I promised an immediate reaction for my followers. As soon as my phone was unlocked and turned back on, I hit record and started spewing all my thoughts. Trust me, it was hard to keep spoilers from slipping out.
Well, that is it guys. I am afraid if I keep typing, I just might spill the beans on something. Long story short, this is not a movie you can wait until the DVD for. I promise you – you NEED to see this in theaters. Even if you are a basic Marvel fan – see it in theaters. You will not regret it!
In closing Avengers: Infinity War will go down in history as the best super hero movie ever made. Well, until Avengers 4.
