Our Review Of The Film:

Infinity War is the moment we’ve all been waiting for.  Every single midnight showing, every marathon, every movie since 2008, has been for this.  The company as a whole has worked so hard to get to this point and meticulous planning went into bringing together what is Infinity War.  To say expectations were high is definitely an understatement; expectations were astronomical!  There was a lot riding on Infinity War, so how did it stack up?

All in all, Avengers: Infinity War was a great film.  It felt like the storm hit and did not hold back.  Every movie has led up to this and you could see the planning that went into it.  The Russo brothers spared no expense and truly gave it their all.  If this was part one I genuinely cannot wait for part two, what’s it going to bring?!  Who is really dead and who is not?  What does the future of the universe look like!  How will Captain Marvel play into this!  Is it May 2019 yet?!

Infinity War blu-ray comes chalked with 2+ hours of extras to keep any fan busy long after the movie credits roll. You will get intros from the directors, “Strange Alchemy” featurette, The Mad Titan featurette looking into Thanos and behind the scenes of Wakanda and Titan fights. Of course add to that some audio commentary and delete scenes to round out the features. In the audio commentary the directors also answer some burning questions about why a certain character took longer to die than the others and other easter eggs for the conclusion of Infinity War.
