I’m going to be very,very, vague in this review, so fear in reading spoilers. But since it’s been exactly an hour since leaving the theater, that you should tell you the state my mind is currently in.
Infinity War is the third Avengers movie and the 19th film in the MCU, ten years! I’m basically going to describe the official trailer, because I stop watching anything pass that. As we know, trailers tend to show way more than they should, so I stay clear. Again, vague review!
Thanos (Josh Brolin) the main, big baddie is on the hunt for the 6 infinity stones that have all been mentioned throughout almost every film. Each stone has a specific power and when combined in Thanos’s golden glove of power, he ultimately becomes unstoppable.
Thanos is by far the most badass villain in the MCU! What they did with this character definitely caught me off guard. It’s one thing to make some “evil” but to illustrate their mind set and show that bad guys don’t see their actions as bad because they feel like their justified and that to me is a very dark and dangers person. A villain that when they come on screen you feel just as scared and helpless as the heroes.
So they Avengers must team up once again and try to get as many helping hands as possible, which includes Black Panther/ Wakanda, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Again, ten years worth of movies are now coming together in one is a big and difficult task. Though, when I heard about it did not think it wouldn’t work and that did not change when I watched the trailer for the first time. They exceed my expectations!
I was wondering how they were going to make the events of Civil War play out in this movie. If you haven’t watched Civil War I really don’t know what you are doing with your life. Tony and Steve have basically unfriended and unfollowed each other on every social media platform. But when the universe is at stake you kind of have to put your issues aside and put on your big panties on and get to work.
There were moments where it was jumping from one location to the next too much but you do have to consider that their in different parts at different times and so many characters that you have to try and get each one. I do and will, watch it again, because first time you are so invested in the story that so much is happening that you don’t really see the little details that are happening in the same scene to notice.
The cast in amazing, which we know because we have been following for years but it’s something else entirely when their finally together and integrating with other heroes and see the chemistry between that makes it all the more special and awesome!
Of course there’s still humor but it does feel darker and heavier than the rest of the films and although I tear eyed a few times, it felt rewarding. I want a deep and worthy and memorable movie that I have been waiting for since high school! THIS MOVIE BROUGHT IT!
It was everything I thought it would be and more. It was heart breaking, funny, action from beginning to end, the cast proves that they can shine individually and together in one film, and proves once again that Marvel has just improved over time…and for that THANK YOU!
I will say this, stay until the very end of the credits because their is more. I only say that for the non-fans because you always stay after past the credits when it’s Marvel!
