A movie like Infinity War deserves a good home release by which i mean the imax ratio, good bonus features and a smart price tag, and this release misses all these things. Disappointed with the bonus content included, feels like they’re saying the same thing with different versions. Overall, the movie looks good, sounds good, but definitely not worth the price tag.
The film was five star, despite leaving too many questions unanswered. But that's the bane of having a film made with the sole aim of providing first half of a saga. Little more in terms of extras, especially some animated features would have been deeply appreciated. And that's my justification of dropping a star. The performance of Amazon was usual, as per its amazing standards.
First of all, I'm glad that Amazon India continues to stock and sell 4K UHD+3D combos, a trend that is dying pretty much everywhere else. Unfortunately, Disney continues to mess up their home releases. Dolby Vision is missing in action once again (only available on digital copies, if you can get access to them), and the Dolby Atmos soundtrack, while not one of their worst, is still largely underwhelming. A film like this, 10 years in the making, doesn't deserve such a shoddy soundtrack. The biggest sin with this release has to be the 2.35:1 aspect ratio Disney has chosen to release this in, as opposed to the IMAX aspect ratio which the film was shot in (Avengers 3 and 4 are the first feature films to be completely shot with digital IMAX cameras). Although the film may have been shot with 2.35:1 framing in mind, it is clear that a full 16:9 image would have delivered a better framing and more visual impact. Overall, while the movie is yet another solid effort by the Russo Brothers, Disney has once again fumbled the ball on this home release. Since this trend started with the second Avengers film back in 2012 (as far as I can recall), it doesn't seem like Disney will rectify this issue anytime soon.
