Synopsis: As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Main Feature: "Avengers: Infinity War" proves one thing: I am starting to get Marvel shellshock. I have aired my grievances that the foundation laid was beginning to crack under the weight of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after "Age of Ultron." While the recent "Thor Ragnarok" and :Black Panther" were more-than-fine entries in the MCU, the overall scheme is fading. "Infinity War" is bloated and somewhat pretentious. The spontaneity and effervescent fun I used to have is now mostly stressed boredom. The engagement of what I see on screen has dissipated. That's not to say it is all bad. Josh brolin really does own the role as Thanos and gets the message, tone and attitude of the character. Its too bad there isn't much context given to him.
Special Features: As usual, its loaded with albeit basic extras: gag reel, deleted/extended scenes, a few making of/BTS featurette. Nothing groundbreaking nor too lengthy (11 minutes is the longest). I would've loved to see more on Borlin in his motion capture performance as Thanos, but not much of that here either.
Final Call: "Avengers: Infinity War" isn't half bad, but I need the gauntlet to snap my fingers to make the bad go away.
