As far as the acting performances go, Infinity War shines not just because of it's technological aspects, but also because of it's remarkable cast of actors that bring believability to their roles as well as surprising yet effective moments of emotion (Cough Tom Holland as Spiderman Cough). Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans both shine in their roles as Iron Man and Captain America, both proving beyond a reasonable doubt that each man is born for the role and simply irreplacable. It will surely be a sad day for Marvel fans when the time comes for both actors to retire from their roles. Chris Hemsworth is fantastic as Thor with Mark Ruffalo poving to be the true Hulk. Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland, Don Cheadle, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Paul Bettany, and Anthony Mackie all delivering terrific supporting performances with the limited time they all share. The films main scene stealing performance however goes to Josh Brolin as Thanos, commanding the screen whenever he appears as well as being one of the most powerful and indestructible villains to grace the big screen since the T-1000 in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. With Thanos, there is a feeling that all hope is lost in trying to defeat him as he feels too powerful for the Avengers to take head on, With the weight of the cast on the films shoulders, the script and story had to be up to par to deliver the spectacle the audience is anticipating. Thankfully the script manages to tie all the character subplots and general plotline together without losing focus of the main narrative that this story isn't so much about winning but is more so about defeat, failure, and even death.
On the films technical aspects, this is the most visually stunning Avengers film thus far. The visual effects are impressive as usual as Marvel movies are heavily dependent upon special effects. The cinematography and sound effects are top notch with the films editing proving to be fast-paced for a two and a half hour film. As far as summer blockbusters go, this is probably the fastest two and a half hour comic book movie since The Dark Knight where the action and sequence of events are so consistent that there isn't enough time in between for the audience to relax too long before the Avengers find themselves in another intense scenario. The films Art-Set Decoration and Costume Design are stunning with the epic climactic battle being nothing short of pure spectacle that shouldn't be missed on the big screen. Avengers: Infinity War is not just the most impressive Avengers film on a technical note, its also one of the most visually striking superhero movies ever made as well as blockbuster. The film is worthy of both visual and sound effects at next years Academy Awards, though if Black Panther beats it in both those categories, that's perfectly fine.
