    @outside_85: You missed the point. The MCU has been leading up to Infinity War. It's the culmination of the past ten years and so there's absolutely no need to introduce any of the previous characters...

    @outside_85: I understand what you're saying but I reiterate what I've explained in this thread. IW was deliberately designed to be this way. While this makes it somewhat difficult for non-MCU followe...

    @necshade: It wasn't. Thor wanted a weapon that could kill Thanos, not that would destroy the guantlet.Although it's "Stormbreaker" and looked like Thor got given his Ultimate outfit (if I'm rememberi...

    @outside_85 said:Overall, it's a big mess of a movie, and one that sort of requires you to have watched the majority of the previous Marvel movie entries with certain movies that are more important t...

    @mooty_pass: I did. I suspect Captain Marvel is going to replicate Adam Warlock's role from Infinity Gauntlet in being the one to rally the troops and create a game plan, with Avengers 4 being a somew...

    @jasonv80: Yeah, but Steve was still playing defensive trying to talk Tony down. Thanos is a space alien with god-like power looking to kill half the universe. How in the nine hells do the two situati...

    How about because Tony was still Steve's friend and Cap was fighting defensive trying to protect Bucky without hurting Tony until the very end of the Civil War fight where he almost decapitates Iron ...

    @mooty_pass: My guess is that the old Avengers end up having to sacrifice themselves to defeat Thanos and reset the click in Avengers 4. It would be a proper send off for them.

    @gateofbabylon: And that's why the critics aren't going to give it the same rating as fans.Yes, films should be reviewed and critiqued as their own thing. The problem is (as I keep saying) is that you...

    @bruceveidt: I know RT is an average of the critics. It doesn't surprise me that the critics are giving it between 7-8 because they're all reviewing it as a normal, stand-alone film. I haven't read th...

    @gateofbabylon: Again, you're going to have to explain that. I'm pretty sure I understand what you're saying and that it's likely why some aren't rating it 90+.What did you want for an "amazing" plot?...

    On a side-note; when it comes to Thanos winning, we need to remember Strange's comment about this is how it needed to be. And this is the guy who saw the future and how to win against Thanos.

    I honestly thought the Soul Stone would have been with Adam Warlock but what they did in the film was a great scene. I actually started to teared up as soon as Thanos was told what the cost of getting...

  • DaSalvadore posted a message in the forum topic Avengers: Infinity War's Rotten Tomatoe score!!. on the Gen. Discussion board

    So I can fully see why people are giving it the reviews they are, especially those rating it less than others. All the reviews essentially end up being "too much of this/that" or "crossover so we don...

    @mrnoital: And I never said anything about that, I was simply pointing out that it's only fair to compare it to those films rather than all of the others.

    @mrnoital: Because the MCU isn't like comparing all the Halloween or Nightmare on Elm Street films. The MCU, especially past Phase 1, are comic-book movies plus another story style. Winter Soldier is ...
