Wow, just wow.
I saw this on the opening weekend and was utterly spellbound for the whole run time. Given that IMAX is such an immersive experience, and that I tend to re-evaluate movies over time, I held off posting in here with a final verdict. Given the past few week’s events it’s now time.
So, first time around I came back home and talked the mrs half to death over how it’s IMO the best event movie since Terminator 2. She usually hates superhero stuff and sci-fi so was not too enthused but willing to give them a go. I then found out that most of the MCU BD’s are on offer, I intended to get them all at some point and I had missed out seeing a few (Guardians 2, Winter Soldier, Ant Man and Homecoming) so went out and got the lot.
We then went on to watch all previous movies, bar Black Panther, in timeline order leading up to Infinity Wars again at the cinema last night.
Still utterly amazing, just how it all works and fits together so well is a real feat. With the entire back story in mind a few bits did make more sense so I can appreciate the critics saying that it’s excessive to need to see 18 films beforehand, but if you’re invested in the MCU that line of argument is irrelevant. Easily up there in my top 10of all time and I can’t wait to watch it again on BD with all the extras.
From memory the last time I saw a movie twice at the cinema during the initial run was Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom!
