Đánh giá phim avengers infinity war

Avengers: Infinity War feels lượt thích a Marvel movie on bath salts. Trying lớn describe any part of it alone will make you sound lượt thích you’ve lost your mind; trying to lớn describe it all kind of makes it sound like it’s lost its mind. And it’s all the more confounding for how closely it mirrors its decade of movie predecessors only to lớn end up shattering that mirror: Infinity War moves, sounds, và acts lượt thích a typical Marvel movie, but then unmasks itself as a creature distinctly its own.

Throughout Marvel Studios’ 10-year cinematic history, we’ve sầu seen the world saved multiple times, from threats ranging from a chunk of Earth poised to lớn crash down & wipe us out lượt thích the dinosaurs in Avengers: Age of Ultron khổng lồ the unkillable goddess of death in Thor: Ragnarok.

You don’t have khổng lồ squint too hard to lớn see that all these villains & their endgames (take control of the planet and/or the universe), as well as our heroes’ efforts to stop them, have sầu started khổng lồ look essentially the same.

“We don’t trade lives,” Captain America (Chris Evans) tells his compatriots in Avengers: Infinity War, essentially summing up Marvel’s ethos over the past 18 movies: Leave no men, women, children, or any other life form behind.

Directed by the Russo brothers, the architects behind Captain America: Civil WarCaptain America: Winter Soldier, Infinity War slyly betrays Cap, presenting his and the Avengers’ worldviews as naive và privileged. Instead, it dares to ask what happens if saving the day means taking real, tangible losses — a concept so foreign that it comes in the size of an intergalactic purple tirã named Thanos (Josh Brolin).

It’s a testament to lớn Marvel và the Russos’ daring that Thanos is actually one of the less surprising things about Infinity War. For the past six years, we’ve been told that he’s on a collision course with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, setting us up for the chaos that ensues in this long-heralded culmination. What I didn’t fully realize is just what that chaos would look lượt thích, and that Marvel had the guts to lớn, mostly, pull it off.

Infinity War is more of a Thanos movie than an Avengers movie

Captain America in Avengers: Infinity War. Marvel Studgame ios The most difficult task facing Infinity War is addressing all of the characters, motivations, subplots, and relationships that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has built up over the years without making it feel lượt thích an expository avalanđậy careening down a mountain khổng lồ bury the audience below.

For example: Gamora (Zoe Saldana) & Nebula (Karen Gillan) are adopted daughters of Thanos, the villain of Infinity War & the big bad lurking in the shadows of Marvel’s movies since 2012’s Avengers. Gamora & Nebula hate each other và hate Thanos, who tortured them by pitting them against each other; he also killed the family of Gamora’s Guardians of the Galaxy teammate Drax (Dave sầu Bautista).

Gamora, Drax, & the other Guardians aren’t technically Avengers, but that’s just because they operate in Marvel’s cosmic universe, which we found out in Thor: Ragnarok is connected to Thor’s Asgard, a recently destroyed world populated by Norse gods & goddesses.

That intricate web of characters & motivations barely scratches the surface of four of Marvel’s recent movies; there are 18 total, not including Infinity War.

The Russo brothers’ solution to this dilemma is khổng lồ turn a movie nominally about the Avengers into lớn a movie about Thanos, played by Brolin decked out in lumpy mounds of purple CGI.

The special effects needed to turn Brolin inlớn Thanos distract in the villain’s softer moments, as when he explains how exactly he came khổng lồ be the Mad Titung. We’re told that, ages ago, Thanos’s home page planet was bountiful but resources were finite. To alleviate the căng thẳng on the planet, Thanos had the idea lớn reduce it by half, eliminating life in order lớn preserve sầu it.

Not satisfied with culling his own planet, Thanos has continued on a mission khổng lồ eliminate half the life in the universe, và needs the Infinity Stones khổng lồ bởi so. And it just so happens that our Avengers are the only thing standing in his way.

Thanos’s story allows Saldamãng cầu to shine, as she rounds out Gamora with more humanity and purpose than the Guardians movies have sầu allowed her. That she’s acting opposite a computer-enhanced Brolin in a majority of her scenes is even more impressive.

But giving Thanos such an expansive history comes at a price.

Most of the Marvel superheroes appearing in Infinity War, particularly Blaông xã Panther and Captain America, are compressed, concentrated versions of themselves. T’Challa (Chadwiông xã Boseman) is given five sầu or so lines to lớn be majestic in his defense of Wakanda; Cap gets a few more minutes khổng lồ be noble và inspiring. Spider-Man (Tom Holland) is around to remind us that he’s young.

Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) và Vision (Paul Bettany) have sầu scenes together to lớn tell you they’re in love sầu. Characters like Drax, Mantis (Pom Klementieff), Falbé (Anthony Mackie), Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), Shuri (Letitia Wright), Okoye (Danai Gurira), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Blaông chồng Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and, of course, Groot (Vin Diesel) have sầu a few one-liners.

Instead of showing us why these characters are so beloved, the Russo brothers employ a Marvel shorthand of sorts, relying on past movies to bởi vì most of the work. And that’s not an unreasonable instinct: Captain America’s first onscreen return in Civil War is awe-inspiring in large part because he’s the Captain America who’s lived in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the past seven years.

The same kind of chills happen when the “Wakanda” theme plays in Infinity War — a testament lớn the power of Ryan Coogler’s massive sầu film. For devotees of the MCU, there’s plenty lớn read into lớn between the lines of Infinity War, but only if you know where lớn look.

Not all of the film’s heroes are underutilized, though. Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) fear of a galactic threat, established over the past few films featuring hlặng, is fully realized in Thanos, và Downey sinks his teeth inkhổng lồ Stark’s vulnerability and apprehension. Stark has to lớn not only defeat this villain but also reconcile that mission with the fact that Thanos’s plan is horrifyingly adjacent to lớn Stark’s dream of a universe so safe that Avengers are rendered obsolete.

Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange & Chris Hemsworth’s Thor are apt counters to Stark. Cumberbatch’s Strange is coolly stubborn, calculating in ways that Stark isn’t. And Hemsworth, after flexing his knaông chồng for comedy in 2017’s Ragnarok, taps into lớn that same humor but laces it with jagged grief and anger informed by having seen Thanos’s wrath firsthand.

It would have sầu been stellar lớn see all of Marvel’s superheroes allowed these little pockets of storytelling in between the Thanos action, but there’s already not enough room in Infinity War’s two hours và 40 minutes. I don’t envy the difficult decisions the Russos had lớn make about the heroes and storylines to lớn spotlight, but I’m also not convinced that giving us a Thanos origin story and relying on that Marvel superhero shorthvà to lớn fill in the gaps was the most efficient way.

Perhaps the easiest way to reconcile this is to lớn underst& that Infinity War doesn’t want lớn have multiple profound heroes, but rather have one profound thing happen khổng lồ all of its heroes.

Avengers: Infinity War is the most comic book movie that Marvel has ever created

Blachồng Panther in Avengers: Infinity War. Marvel Studtiện ích ios The best & worst thing about Infinity War is that it’s a comic book movie.

Comic book artists aren’t bound by visual effects budgets, so they’re allowed khổng lồ give us priceless imaginations on paper: new worlds on every page, mystifying beings, dazzling spacecraft, spellbinding powers, and megaton fights. Infinity War is the closest iteration of this limitless power that we’ve seen onscreen.

Midway through, I lost count of the planets & galaxies visited, each one terrifyingly beautiful in its own way. There’s a breath-stopping visit to lớn a deserted ghost thành phố of a planet, so evocative sầu you can almost smell the sulfur in the air và feel the temperature drop when it comes on the screen.

And the faces of Thanos’s Blaông xã Order, his cabal of henchmen, are fearsome & distinct, offering both scintillating powers và copious nightmare fuel. Their fights with the Avengers are the film’s highlights, & a couple of them truly feel like significant threats lớn Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

The problem with flexing this sort of expansive sầu world building is that it requires so much jumping around the universe that the film feels like it’s spinning plates. That results in the compression I mentioned earlier, the feeling that some characters are around simply to lớn remind you they exist. But it also, frustratingly, kneecaps what should be the MCU’s grandest fight scene, Infinity War’s invasion of Wakandomain authority.

It’s the largest-scale onscreen fight I can reĐiện thoại tư vấn since the Battle of Helm’s Deep in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Our heroes, in a valiant last st&, are the only thing that stands between Thanos and universal destruction. And his generals have unleashed thousands of intergalactic hounds — what look to lớn be a cross between snapping turtles & WWE wrestlers — upon Wakandomain authority. Cap và Black Panther teaming up to lớn hold the line is a strange phối of joy & bức xúc. Seeing Okoye and Blachồng Widow’s combat expertise in tandem is breathtaking. Same with Scarlet Witch unleashing her full powers.

Unfortunately, though, because there are multiple storylines going on at one time, we jump from Wakanda to lớn outer space and another faction of Avengers doing their part to lớn save the universe, or get thrust into Thor’s side quest to lớn find a weapon strong enough lớn kill Thanos.

It’s frustrating that it’s so difficult lớn fully appreciate the fantastic work that went into orchestrating these massive spectacles when we’re constantly being jostled from place khổng lồ place. Midway through, all these different settings & all these jumps begin khổng lồ feel exhausting.

The same thing can happen in comic books. Some story arcs are better than others. And sometimes you’ll have to lớn read through them all — even the most boring ones — to lớn get the full crossover experience và make sure you didn’t miss anything.

But also as in comic books, there’s one absolute bombshell of a moment that grabs you by the nechồng và drives you baông xã inlớn the story. Infinity War boasts the most breathtaking, audacious moment in supernhân vật movie history, one that rocketed through my brain and tore apart everything I thought I knew about the past 10 years of Marvel moviemaking. For the first time in a while, I can’t wait to lớn see what happens next.
