Avengers: Infinity War is the longest Marvel Cinematic Universe film to date, but its epic duration doesn't even describe its scope. It takes place in more than half a dozen main locations, features dozen of speaking roles, and plays numerous well-known characters who enjoy speakingmuch. To say that screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely cut out their work for them is an understatement. A lot of words are spoken throughout this movie, and while the dialogue features some of the most memorable lines in the hilarious MCU, others are ... well, not that great. Everyone will come outInfinity war with a favorite line (or two or ten), and everyone will hear a few things that land with a little bang, be it because they're just slightly awkward lines or because they don't quite work in their moment. With that in mind, here is afilled with spoiler Check out ten of the best and worst lines out of the jam-packedAvengers: Infinity War.

Best of all: act life

Infinity war is a very, very high stakes film, and as a result, many of the movie's main characters debate how best to deal with those stakes. Vision (Paul Bettany), who has one of the Infinity Stones - the Mind Stone - in his head, is at the center of one of the most difficult puzzles. After nearly dying by the Black Order, he suggests that it is better for the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) to simply destroy the stone and herself than to risk it falling into the wrong hands and countless lives costs. Captain America (Chris Evans) counters with a simple statement: 'We don't trade in life.' This is far from easy, of course, and even the mighty Steve Rogers is well aware of it. However, it doesn't stop him from aiming for the best possible outcome and hoping for as long as possible, and it pays off tremendously when Vision saves his life later in the film.




Worst of all: Thanos boasts

As the film's main character and Marvel's scariest villain to date, Thanos (Josh Brolin) naturally gets many of the movie's best lines, but one he utters early on ends up with at least a little bang. Standing amid the corpses of dead and dying Asgardians, he holds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in his hand like a rag doll and gives a menacing little speech about the feeling that comes with losing. Then, to put an exclamation point, he says, “Your fate arrives anyway, and now it is here. Or should I say ... that's me. 'All of the speech is still effective, but that last little' Or should I say ... 'feels a little too much. Thanos obviously sees himself as an instrument of fate in his quest to cleanse the universe of half its population, but he could just as easily have made it clear by ending the speech earlier and then brandishing his glove with his shiny power stone. If he hadn't gone on for so long, we wouldn't have gotten Thor's classic joke about Thanos talking too much.

Best of all: superhero names

It's a tradition at major superhero crossover events to take some time to joke a little between heroes and see how their different personalities flow into the overall narrative. Infinity warhas to spare such scenes, and one of the best is one of the newest members of the MCU: Spider-Man (Tom Holland). That and Spidey's talent for jokes paid off right from the start and made for a particularly big laugh in the scene in which he and Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) get to know each other. Spidey starts with his real name, Peter Parker, while Strange simply introduces himself as Doctor Strange because his superhero name and real name are one and the same. Peter's response: “Oh, we use our made up names. So I'm Spider-Man. '- is a perfect comedic boost between action scenes. It again states that Peter is new to this whole superhero thing, that Strange is still pretty much at odds with the Avengers, and that Spider-Man can't stop talking no matter how big the events around him may be.

Worst of all: Rockets Wisecrack in a cemetery

Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) is a smart guy. He always has been and always will be, even in the world's greatest emotional moments Guardian of the Galaxy Movies. It's no surprise he's just as sardonically and quickly ridiculed, though Infinity war rolls around, including his continued obsession with prosthetic attachments of all kinds. One particular joke from Rocket, however, felt a little out of place, even by its standards. When the Guardians crew arrive at the place where Thor's now destroyed ship once stood, they find the room around them full of corpses and debris. A few moments ago they joked about how they were going to get money from whoever they were saving, but when they saw the carnage everyone else was shocked and saddened. Rocket, on the other hand, simply says, "I think we don't get paid." The line could have worked on the character who uses humor as a defense mechanism, but after two straight films where he had to learn to take care of others, it felt bad. He's also yelling to turn on the wipers and get Thor off the windshield, which is a much better voltage breaker.

Best of all: Thanos and Gamora

Gamora (Zoe Saldana) was introduced to the MCU as the 'daughter' of Thanos, a position she did not enjoy but which she nevertheless defined as a person with a dark past in search of redemption with the Guardians of the Galaxy. We knew that connection existed and would likely add to it Infinity war, but it's doubtful that many expected it to be the most heartbreaking part of the movie. What starts with Gamora warning everyone else about what Thanos wants and how far he will go to achieve it, ends with Gamora realizing that her 'father' really loved her in his own twisted way and was afraid she would give up to have to do it Fulfill his quest. This deep moral conflict further underscored by the reality that Thanos somehow helped do Gamora, the good, fierce warrior she is at the time of the film, is full of memorable moments, from Thanos choosing not to sit on his own throne because he knows Gamora hates when Gamora cries, when she thinks she has finally killed the tyrant. There are a number of memorable lines, but the one that stays the most in the end is the one Thanos says when he first meets his daughter as a little girl on her home planet: 'You're pretty much the fighter, Gamora.'

Worst of all: Thunderbolt Ross talks hard

The best thing about Captain America: Civil War was the meaningful emotional core that came with two camps of superheroes forced to rush to two sides of a complex moral argument. The worst thing about it Civil war? The persistent bureaucratic background radiation that came with the fallout. in the Infinity warFortunately, very little time is devoted to this, except for a brief moment to let everyone know where Hawkeye and Ant-Man are (apparently under house arrest) and an appearance by Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross (William Hurt), the Secretary of State, who was behind the Sokovia Accords. Because Steve Rogers and his crew decided to oppose the agreements even after the events of Civil warRoss still considers them a war criminal, and so does he when they show up at the Avengers facility upstairs to seek the help of War Machine (Don Cheadle). Ross appears briefly and in hologram form, but he takes enough time out of the unfolding crisis to punish Cap once more. 'The world is on fire and you think everything is taken?' he asks Rogers, who assures Ross that if forced to do so, he will fight. It's a brief exchange, but enough to make you moan a bit. Even so, it helps Ross quickly accept that he and the former Captain America need each other again at the moment.

Best of all: Farewell words from Thanos

Thanos makes a number of suitably grandiose speeches in Infinity warwhether he explains his motivations to Gamora or simply tries to tell the Avengers why all their efforts to fight him will ultimately prove irrelevant. He saves one of them very aptly for Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) who spends the film haunted by the 'curse' of Thanos that has hovered over him ever since The Avengers. Stark doesn't see the Thanos threat just as something he has to stop as a superhero. It's personal to him. It's the thing that keeps him up at night that keeps him from starting a family or trying to have some semblance of a normal life, so he is dying to wipe that curse off his mind. When Thanos strikes him back, he convinces the victory, he informs Stark that he knew about him too, that both are cursed with knowledge that they do not want, and Stark has won his respect. Then, when Stark begins to bleed between the ruins of Titan, Thanos delivers the kicker: After reminding Stark that half of humanity will survive his purge, he looks the godfather of the MCU dead in the eyes and says, “Me hope they remember you. 'Moments later, Thanos is gone, Iron Man is helpless and hope seems to be lost. Ouch.

Worst of all: Star-Lord can't stop bragging

Humility and emotional maturity were never really things Peter 'Star-Lord' Quill (Chris Pratt) is good at. He likes to talk trash, brag about his achievements, and flex both his physical and selfish muscles. This wasn't backed up by the fact that he now has a real relationship with Gamora, so it's no surprise that he is spending a lot of money Infinity war compare yourself to other heroes. He is upset when Thor and his massive divine muscles show up to win the Guardians, upset when Rocket claims to be the captain of the ship, and upset when Iron Man tries to take control of Titan and carry out the planning . Then when the gang finally gets to Thanos and has him within reach, Peter just can't shut up. Even before he gets emotional about Gamora's apparent death, it takes him a second to brag, 'That was my plan, by the way,' when it looks like the mad Titan is finally on the ropes. Now it's really bad lineBut in the context of the scene and understanding the gravity of what they are trying to achieve - especially after breaking his promise to Gamora - it feels like the ultimate self-centered move at the worst possible time.

Best of all: Spider-Man breaks our hearts

Tom Holland is an especially great big screen Spider-Man because he's able to toggle between 'Peter Parker, the Scared Kid' and 'Spider-Man, the Aspiring Superhero' and it's often amazing to watch. He does it especially well in Spider-Man: Homecomingand it's a skill that Infinity war is able to take advantage of very sad moments for the saddest moment in a montage. When Thanos snaps his fingers and wipes out half the universe, the surviving heroes watch as many of their comrades suddenly and inexplicably collapse into dust. On Titan, Tony Stark has to watch the Mantis, Drax and Star-Lord disappear before his eyes, and then he turns to Peter Parker. Peter, with his mask off, knows something is wrong (possibly because his budding Spider Sense alerted him to it even before he began to break apart), and it's so scary that he'll run too strong and be around Life asks and says: 'I don't'. I do not want to go. I don't wanna go sir. Please, I don't want to go. 'Tony already viewed Peter as some sort of surrogate son, but his admission earlier in the movie that he was considering finally having a child of his own and Holland's remarkable accomplishment as a scared child far from home only add to an already devastating outcome Moment. We already know we'll see Holland again as Spidey, but it was still very hard to take.

Worst of all: One unnecessary last line

Most of the montage, in which our heroes watch their friends dissolve into dust, takes place in relative silence, with just the noises from around the world and a few shocked words to release the tension. Spider-Man's heartbreaking final words are preceded by Strange's own goodbye ('there was no other way'), and then everything is concluded by a weary and defeated Captain America who just sighs, 'Oh God.' Shortly before, however, War Machine steps into the frame, surrounded by freaky avengers who can only watch in silence, and asks: “What is this? What the hell is going on? ' It is perfectly reasonable to ask if you've just seen half of the people around you disappear for no immediately apparent reason. Still, if just a little, it distracts from the stunned silence broken only by a few very effective lines. At this point, we don't need a character to ask, 'What is this?' when we've seen it on everyone's face. It is obvious that everyone is afraid, confused and grieved. War Machine's vocalizing doesn't really add to the moment. It could all have ended with the silent Avengers in Wakanda and Cap 'Oh God' and could have worked just as well, if not better.
