The ultimate villain ‘Thanos’ is keen on collecting all the six infinity stones to wipe out half the universe. How the ‘Avengers’ try to save the world from him forms the remaining story of the movie.
The Russo brothers are perfect with their planning and direction, they’ve shown things in a lot more different manner. Script is exceptional in all aspects and the detailing is lovely. Screenplay is great, packs the punch with loads of action, comedy and emotions mixed correctly. Dialogues are crazy, leaves splendid impact both with mass and humor moments. All the superheroes are exciting as a team and the beauty is that, everyone of them have equal importance to score. The combinations are solid, and they all create a magic on screen. The villain role is even more stronger than the heroes and that makes the game nail-biting. The flow is very much interesting, and it is not at all predictable. The zic-zac narration heats up the intensity in every scene. There is at least one surprise in every sequence which peaks the momentum. Trent Opaloch’s camera work is mind-blowing, each frame is just treat for the eyes. Editors have made justice to the progression by giving wonderful cuts, they’re also a strong reason for the movie’s tight grip. Costumes are so impressive and make the characters shine bright. Art and set work are truly beyond imagination, the elevation is just topical to the backdrop. Stunt choreography is spectacular, and the fights portions tempt for the screams. 3D experience is good and worth the money spent. Climax is mind-freezing and shocking in an emotional way. Credit scene is also terrific, also makes way for the massive sequel.
Having so many characters in the club, the film gives a bit of a clumsy feel. Overall, the movie looks quite lengthy due to the rarely appearing sluggish sequences around the mid-way. The abrupt left-over sequences with a big gap creates the continuity issue in the meantime. Alan Silvestri’s background music is not bad, but it could’ve been much more better in the action portions. Keeping the superhero aspect aside, as actors they don’t get enough scope to bring out their performances.
TO CONCLUDE – An extravagant roller-coaster ride filled with full of entertainment values.
Movie Rating – 3.75/ 5.
