SAINT PETER, MN- It’s been ten years since the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Universe b release of Iron Man in 2008. Since the creation of Marvel Studios, there have been many great movies (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of The Galaxy, Blank Panther), some mediocre films (Thor, Avengers: Age of Ultron), and some movies that should be destroyed from the world’s memory (Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, Thor: The Dark World). Through the studio’s ups and downs there has always been one end goal in mind, and it’s the film all your nerdiest friends won’t shut up about. Avengers: Infinity War. The Fourth Crown witnessed the War of Infinity and after we pieced our hearts back together it is time for a review.
The best part of them film, without a doubt, was when Thanos gave his dissertation on public developments and how to properly fund the poor. Some people think that watching a forty-minute-long dissertation given by a man that looks like if Twinky Winky got hopped up on steroids and PCP wasn’t the best use of his character. However, the social commentary was a refreshing change for Marvel, and hopefully one that the studio continues to push.
There was also the big elephant in the room. Nobody important even freaking died. Like everyone, we at the Fourth Crown waited ten years to watch the characters that we have grown to love, and Ant Man, die. Instead, all the Avengers went to go watch Blank Panther in IMAX. They all heard about how well it was doing and wanted check it out. The only people that died were Hawkeye’s family and no one gives a shit about his bogus children.
In all the Fourth Crown gives Avengers: Infinity War a 5/10. A perfect 50% score.
(P.S. The last big death was Woody Allen.)
