A24 seem to specialize in making horror movies that people have quite adverse and polarized reactions to. The Witch, It Comes at Night and most recently Hereditary have also been praised by critics, but left a sizeable number of audience members bored to the core. It’s perhaps because the respective film’s trailers didn’t promise the scare a minute fest that people were expecting, hence the word of mouth for all films involved took a dramatically decline following the first week of release (I have one major issue with the trailer for Hereditary but it’s not that it promised a vastly different film).

Back in 2015, three Americans, one Brit, and two French nationals successfully subdued a terrorist before anyone was killed. These few minutes in which the attack took place cemented themselves as heroes. The attack last only a few minutes, and whilst the subject is an honourable one, it seems strange that a whole feature film would be dedicated to this short event.

Over 10 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been leading to this precise moment. The first part of The Avengers: Infinity War clearly marks the biggest movie of Marvel’s Universe, and its grand scale, infinite characters and multiple locations didn’t disappoint. This film is important, so I will reveal little except for the superheroes of the MCU team up to stop Thanos (James Brolin) wiping out half the universe.
