What makes visual effects for the film so incredibly expensive?

Do you mean CGI? If so they actually got easier and cheaper to produce with the years (see the Marvel productions, they come up with several films a year and they are almost only CGI based).

I don't really know a lot about film or CGI but it's probably that a lot of things have/had to be done by hand - animations, textures, and so on. Also I don't know how they do it but I'm pretty sure you can't render in real time a CGI scene so previewing it has to be a PITA.

Just throwing some ideas though, I think the topic is interesting :)
