The latest movie in the Marvel Cinematic universe honestly left me with more questions than answers. It took me four days before I finally watched the movie, and somehow I managed to avoid spoilers so my friend and I were left in total shock and awe. I think my head is still wrapping around what I saw. As this is still in theaters at the date of this blog I am going to be as careful as possible, but just in case spoiler alert. I DO NOT OWN THE PICTURE.
After nearly six years Thanos (Josh Brolin) has finally emerged to collect the six Infinity stones (power, space, reality, soul, time and mind). However if he thinks it is going to be easy he has a big fight ahead of him. In his way are members of the broken up Avengers: in New York the recently engaged to Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) Tony Stark aka Iron Man (Robert Downy Jr.), Bruce Banner aka the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) after he crash landed on Earth, Peter Parker aka Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Stephan Strange aka Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), along with his assistant Wong (Benedict Wong). They end up taking their fight with some of Thanos’s children into space, expect for Banner who manages to contact a few friends: Steve Rogers aka Captain America (Chris Evans), Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Sam Wilson aka Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olson) and Vision (Paul Bettany). After they realize what Thanos is after and one of them happens to be in Vision’s head this section of the Avengers, along with James “Rhodey” Rhodes aka War Machine (Don Cheadle), travel to the nation of Wakanda to find a way to safely remove and destroy the stone. They get some help with King T’Challa aka Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Okoye (Danai Gurira), Shuri (Letitia White) M’Baku (Winston Duke) and Bucky Barnes aka Winter Soldier/White Wolf (Sebastian Stan). Meanwhile out in space Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Loki (Tom Hiddelston) and Heimdall (Idris Elba) have an encounter with Thanos that leaves many dead, but help soon arrives in the form of The Guardians of the Galaxy: Peter Quill aka Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Groot (Vin Diesel), Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff). About as far as I should go without spoiling the movie, but as always stay until the very end.
Infinity War is a very good superhero movie. Everyone is at their absolute best in this movie, the writing and special effects were so good and overall this is an absolute must watch if you are a superhero fan. Obviously there are a few films you have to watch before you get to this film, but this is something I had to remind myself at the end of the movie: this is only part 1, part 2 is coming out next year. I know a story came out from the producers saying that nothing is going to get fixed, but I am almost positive they are just teasing. I promise you guys will love Infinity Wars.
