I dunno... This movie, which is supposed to be the culmination of ten years of Marvel movies, halfway didn't work for me because there were just so damn many people popping up... any time they had to do any sort of story or plot it felt super rushed and telegraphed because really that's all there is. new character new character, reference to past movie, new character, "thanos can snap his fingers," reference, character, cg explosion, "did you know thanos can snap his fingers?," character, character, reference, plot resolution, end.
I mean.. it's cool to see everyone come together, all the universes collide, and all that stuff. But... ok here's my real problem. They're trying pretty hard to raise the stakes but these movies are so comic-booky and nothing is ever permanent in comic books so raising the stakes is ultimately pointless. They could kill off the entire cast and I'd still expect all of them to come back in the next one. So then it becomes more about the meta: who's contract is up, which sequels have been announces, which actor is popping up in some other project. At that point I'm totally out of any sort of narrative involvement and just wondering what the master plan is. At least this one felt that way. Maybe the smaller movies like Ant-Man and the Wasp will have more story... or not. I dunno.
I see so few movies these days, these are starting to feel like a waste of time. The entire world watches them though. i dunno.
