Blu-ray Review: Avengers: Infinity War

August 14, 2018

By John Corrado

It’s already one of the biggest blockbusters of all time after opening to record box office numbers at the beginning of the summer, and now Avengers: Infinity War is arriving on Blu-ray this week.

The culmination of ten years worth of Marvel Cinematic Universe films, this is a gigantic beast of a movie that features a lot of great moments along the way, building towards a shocking ending that – love it or hate it – was hotly debated amongst fans and instantly cemented itself as part of the pop culture lexicon. For more on the film itself, you can read our three reviews of it right here.

The Blu-ray also comes with a selection of bonus features, starting with a brief intro to the film by directors Joe and Anthony Russo, as well as a commentary track featuring the two filmmakers joined by writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Next up are the four featurettes Strange Alchemy, which looks at bringing all of these characters together; The Mad Titan focuses on the film’s main villain Thanos (Josh Brolin); and Beyond the Battle: Titan and Beyond the Battle: Wakanda offer a look at what went into bringing these two giant set-pieces to the screen.

Finally, there are the four deleted scenes Happy Knows Best, Hunt for the Mind Stone, The Guardians Get Their Groove Back and A Father’s Choice, as well as a brief but cringe-inducing gag reel. This isn’t a ton of bonus material all things considered, but what’s here is generally still worth watching after the film, especially for fans who are going to want to pick up a copy of the Blu-ray anyway.

Avengers: Infinity War is a Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment release. It’s 149 minutes and rated PG.
