Some Takeaways From Avengers: Infinity War

Even though we had warning about this monumental movie, I still feel like it snuck up on us. We’ve barely come off the high of Black Panther, and then we had to move on to this. I am sure you guys know by now but I always make it a point to preface every super hero write up of mine by letting you know that this is not my forte, so I state my opinion as a non-comic book aficionado.

A lot of people have asked if you have to have watched all the preceding Marvel movies before watching this and I don’t think you have to. And I say this as someone who has probably seen only maybe 5/6 of the movies and even the ones I have seen, I don’t remember in its entirety.  If you do decide you want to watch a select few, the ones that seemed to be the important ones were Thor and Civil War.

That being said, even though I had a few questions here and there, I don’t think it affected my enjoyment of the movie. While I did not have the really strong, over-the-top emotion to the ending that people on social media seemed to have, I still really enjoyed it (dare I say, I preferred it to Black Panther?)It was definitely intense and really had a lot going on but it had a good amount of everything – humor, fight scenes, emotion, rapport etc. and with so many of the marvel-verse characters, you are spoiled for choice on picking a fave and following their story.

So, due to my baby knowledge and lack of movies watched, I decided to do this differently and instead of reviewing it, I’ll just share some observations and thoughts I had while watching the movie.

  • I found it hilarious seeing most of the male superheroes being much older, while the females were younger. I mean Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) is 29 and Paul Bettany (Vision) is 46.
  • Speaking of Elizabeth Olsen, I love how she has made her career her own. So much so you forget that she is the younger sister of the Olsen twins.
  • Correct me if I am wrong but wasn’t Scarlett Johansson’s character (Black Widow) a red head? Why was she blonde in this movie?
  • When Captain America and Thor came on screen there was applause in my theater. When I heard the anticipatory Wakanda beat, I wanted to clap with glee but there was silence 🙁
  • Gosh, Chris Pratt’s character (Star-Lord) was so annoying. Geez. I couldn’t finish the first GOTG movie
  • Josh Brolin was fantastic as Thanos. Thanos was a worthy villain. Wait, does worthy villain make sense? When Star-Lord called his chin “nut-sac looking”, I died. I saw him as a Hausa man with his tribal marks.
  • Benedict Cumberbatch was so sexy as Dr. Strange and Tom Holland as Spiderman, what a win. I found it so cute how he always called Iron Man “Mr. Stark”. His “crumbling” was the most touching for me, he really didn’t wanna go 🙁
  • Umm, that bulge Chadwick Boseman was serving us in Wakanda wasn’t there in Black Panther, right?
  • Peter Dinklage has done well for himself career wise
  • Poor HawkEye, where was he?
  • Every time I see Don Cheadle as War Machine, you just know that Terrence Howard is somewhere kicking himself.
  • The Hulk needs to redeem himself.
  • Umm, if I had to pick one super hero to go fight with me, I am taking Thor. Who would you take?

Have you seen the movie? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

I really didn’t know Elizabeth Olsen is related to Marry-Kate and Ashley.
Thor and Dr Strange kinda won me over in the movie, I’m now a huge fan of them. I enjoyed it, I just don’t still seem to understand what the ‘crumbling’ means

I will take Thor. Except for black panther I haven’t seen any Avengers movie . So I enjoyed guessing who was who , and I enjoyed it better than Black panther . In the theater there’s was clapping too when captain America and Thor came on.
I never knew she was an Olsen sister. Good to know.
Felt bad for the Hulk. Yeah, starlord was super annoying.

You’ve seen only 5?!!! (shakes head in disappointment). Love the points you’ve made and allow me to add my 50kobo… Scarlet Witch is supposed to be the most powerful of them all but alas because of the rights issue she cannot be shown with her full omega mutant powers. But she did kick ass though. Black Widow is a master of disguise hence the different hair colour but I cannot tell you how Thanos has had different skin tones over the course of the films. A tan, no? Star Lord was a huge disappointment and dude is supposed to be… Read more »
