I didn’t go in with high expectations, I wasn’t hyped up a lot as I was for the first Avengers or Civil War, and even then I was a bit disappointed.
Characters were probably the biggest letdown. I didn’t like how Banner and Thor were relegated to silly banter and situations, and wacky dialogue. Banner especially, at least Thor has a couple of cool and badass moments.
I didn’t like how Dr. Strange suddenly turns into an emotional idiot just to let the plot advance when he gives the Time Stone to Thanos to save Tony, when there was barely any attachment between the two and he seemed adamant about protecting the stone at any cost, even their lives, just moments before.
I didn’t like the romances between Vision and Wanda and Starlord and Gamora, as they’re both basically the same thing, one of the two has to make the oh so difficult decision to kill the other for the greater good. Think about it, it’s the exact same situation repeated twice, just with different couples.
I honestly think Thanos is the only really good thing in the movie, characters wise. A villain with a solid motivation, that makes sense and is actually menacing and with a strong presence on the scene.
The battles didn’t feel epic enough imo, I would put those of Civil War, and the other two Avengers movies over this one’s. The action was still entertaining though, it’s not like it was boring and unexciting. Just felt short of greatness, I think.
I liked how they balanced the cast, it didn’t feel a “Cap and Iron Man and their friends” kinda movie like I heard some people fearing it would be. Nor did the pacing seem off to me.
Overall, an ok movie. Didn’t regret spending money to see it, but I’m not dying to rewatch it. The Russo brothers got me used to better, as I see it.
