Why Avengers: Infinity War ultimately disappoints

I liked Avengers: Infinity War. One of the factors I’d been most wary about; the balancing of so many different characters and their individual stories, turned out to be a success, as I thought the various plot lines weaves together really nicely, concurrently displaying how far-reaching Thanos’s impact was, with our heroes playing their parts in different parts of the galaxy at the same time.

I thought the focus on Thanos as the main character was well done too; it definitely gave him a proper introduction that previous Marvel villains lacked.

Ultimately, I was disappointed by Avengers: Infinity War because of the widely talked-about ending. 

Since it’s been awhile since it’s release, I think it’s safe to reveal that basically half the characters die as Thanos has collected all the Infinity stones.

When I saw Black Panther, Spider-Man and the bulk of the GOTG cast disappear though, instead of shock I felt somewhat cheated – because we know they’re coming back based on Marvel upcoming announced releases. 

Effectively, the sense of finality and characters being gone for good just wasn’t there. 

I guess I’d expected this to have a defined ending on its own, but it’s instead become a Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 or Mockingjay Part 1; it’s only half of a complete story; and surely the less important half.

Overall rating: 6.7/10

Broadly speaking a real accomplishment of a film, if brought down only by a disappointing ending
