Despite all the inventive set pieces, this new Chris Hemsworth action venture fails to deliver.
A final showdown with Thanos also provides a perfect culmination for the 22-film story established by the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the course of eleven years.
Certainly one that goes to infinity, but does it go beyond?
At its best, action draws attention, but at its worst (a good lot of the film), it adheres strictly to a tiresome formula. (✯✯)
