(film review) - Avengers: Infinity War

We can only marvel at the marvellous way Marvel have managed to miraculously manipulate us by manifesting and making multiple movies with many mini story-arcs that eventually mount up to a massive match with a force with such the momentum of mammoth-like magnitude, us viewers and heroes alike, will be tested.  Furthermore, Marvel and Kevin Feige will be tested as this has never been done before in history, ever.  It has all been building to this.  20 Films has led us to this point.  How did it fair?

Well, I don't want to go into this soo much as I've covered most of the Marvel Movies since Day 1.  Iron Man (ok, maybe not that one), Iron Man 2 all the way up to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.1 & Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Black Panther.  The Former being a shot in the dark to the latter grossing $1,346,913,161 Worldwide.  Very pale in comparison to $585,174,222 for Iron man when they first started.  Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe money making machine, all chaperoned by our lord saviour Kevin Feige has a very impressive resume and what he has done, may never be done again, EVER! Or at least in the near future.  Setting trends hundreds of other movie studios have tried to copy successfully and lots of them failing and falling at the first hurdle.  Having a Franchise is ALL the rage right now and this is why.

Our Heroes are now facing the biggest bad they have ever faced, Thanos (Josh Brolin) who is on a quest to meet the goals he has set by collecting all the Infinity Stones to wipe out HALF of all life.  Whilst Iron Man and Captain America are still on the outs, both individuals soon gather their own separate teams to combat Thanos and his forces called 'The Dark order'.  When things start to look dire, our heroes decide to take the fight to Thanos...but do they succeed?

Other than seeing what you saw in the Trailers (if you watched the trailers, of course), I cannot go into any more details without spoiling the movie.  But I've got to say, from the two brothers that has brought us 'The Winter Soldier' (blowing us all out the water! I mean, who is Captain America? Lame!!!), then bringing us 'Civil War' (with the big Airport Scene!) and then this, these guys are definitely on a roll.  And to think they are tidying up the sequel to this movie they have already shot and possibly placing a nice tidy bow over the MCU at this point, we will see, but in short, this movie is great!

The acting, the visual, the scope.  The interaction between the characters and the combinations.  Remember when you saw Spider-Man holding onto War Machine in Civil War as he jetted through the air, yeah, there are similar crazy combinations of characters who wouldn't necessarily cross paths and do.  The interactions between the characters are great and provide good comic relief to a movie that is very dense.

It's really a matter of, we have come soo far in the MCU and The Russo brother have done soo well up until this point, I feel they have stuck the landing.  If you have enjoyed the films up until this point, you ought to love this movie.  Let's just hope Endgame is just as Big and Bad as Thanos in the first 5 minutes of the movie.  If you don't get that reference, go watch it!
