There are no better words to best describe Avengers: Infinity War other than an emotional thrill ride.
The worlds mightiest heroes are joined once more to find themselves facing their greatest enemy yet – Thanos.
On his quest to collect all six infinity stones, Thanos plans to use these powerful artifacts to render the earth of everything he deems unworthy and inflict the universe to his twisted will at the snap of his fingers.
The fate of the planet and all of existence itself is unclear as old and new allies have fought to protect the lives of others come together for the biggest showdown of their lives. Even if sacrifices must be made.
Ten years of character development, worldbuilding, and dedication in the making have all come down to one of the most anticipated superhero films of all time, and Marvel did not disappoint.
This movie is not only jam-packed with great action sequences that are delivered very well, but it also offers many (and I mean MANY) emotional moments that will have you speechless.
All praise should go toward Directors Anthony and Joe Russo, as they were able to provide fans with an emotionally and thrilling blockbuster, as well as ambitiously and ably juggling an array of beloved MCU heroes with justice and care.
You will love to hate Thanos as he proves to be Marvel’s most cynical and well-developed villain of all time. It definitely won’t be hard to NOT root for the bad guy.
While the majority of your favorite heroes are finally seen together on the big screen and given their moment in the spotlight, those who definitely stood out most were Thor, The Guardians of the Galaxy, Tony Stark (Ironman), Dr. Strange, and Spider-Man.
Although it offers a heavier and possibly darker tone than its predecessors, you can rest assured that the humor in the film are well paced and executed and does not drag the movie along.
While at times predictable, maybe a little bit cheesy, and lack of story arc, the good definitely outweighed the bad.
With a star-studded cast, many takeaway moments, and great acting, Avengers: Infinity War will have your heart pumping from beginning to end.
Overall Score: 9/10
