Review

And so the movie business has come to this: An unscrupulous milking of an enormous number of superhero franchises, which then are further into several parts of outright episodic quality. Avengers: Infinity War is not a movie in any traditional sort of sense; it's a combined recap of a previous episode and intro to another. This is two and a half hours of characters coming and going, all of which are more or less invincible and have no ground-rules set for their co-existence. The action sequences and battles are flat, unaccounted for and thus have no relevance. I'm appalled by the fact that the studios (Marvel and Walt Disney) do not realize how meaningless they are making their own universes with such shameless sell-outs. I am not looking forward to the next installment.
