Avengers: Infinity War Movie Review

Avengers:  Infinity War Movie Review
Marvel fans love this movie!  All of our favorites join the battle to save the world from evil domination. 

The Avengers team up with The Guardians of the Galaxy to battle Thanos who is collecting the 6 infinity stones with the ultimate goal of taking over the universe.   With each infinity stone, Thanos becomes more powerful and harder to defeat.  He ruthlessly murders the keepers of each stone using whatever means is necessary for him to add to his collection and ultimate, unstoppable power.

Thanos' plan is to rule the universe and eliminate 50% of the population.  He claims the resources of the world are finite, therefore he wishes to decrease the surplus population so those who are left will be sustainable.  His claims that he can eliminate hunger may sound noble and benevolent until you realize mass murder is necessary.   

What I didn't expect was to see several of my beloved heroes die at the hand of powerful evil.

Asgard, Thor's homeland, has been previously destroyed in the movie Thor:  Ragnarok.  For viewers, the Infinity War begins when Thanos (Josh Brolin) attacks Thor's refugee ship.  Thor has been taken captive and Loki subsequently surrenders the Space infinity stone in his possession in exchange for Thor's life.  In a heart-sickening turn of events, Thanos murders both Loki and Heimdall (Idris Elba).  But, Thor is left alive and is rescued by The Guardians of the Galaxy.

The battle moves into the streets of New York where Doctor Strange, who possesses the Time infinity stone, is attacked.   Iron Man, Hulk and Spiderman all try to protect Doctor Strange to prevent the theft of the Time stone.

In Scotland, Vision, who possesses the Mind stone, also finds himself under attack with Scarlett Witch being his only defender at first.  However, Captain America, Black Widow & Falcon show up just in time to save both Scarlett Witch and Vision from certain death.

The final battle takes place in Wakanda, home of the Black Panther, where Vision was taken to be protected.  All of the remaining Avengers and Guardians arrive to defend Vision and the universe, but all do not survive.  The end is shocking!  

I couldn't move from my seat when the movie was over.  I kept wanting more.  I needed there to be more, but clearly that will have to wait for the next movie. 



 

Do I Recommend Avengers: Infinity War


Absolutely!  However, I plan to buy the DVD as soon as it is released and I would recommend Marvel fans should do the same.  I want to be able to watch it again right before I go to the theater when the sequel is released.

One final note: Be sure you sit through the credits at the end of the movie. You will want to see the teaser with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and who he summons for help. A new avenger is clearly on the horizon!

  1. If my family Sci Fi/Fantasy fans (daughter and son-in-law) haven't seen the Avengers yet, I know they will soon. They are as big Marvel fans as you are, Mouse. :) Wonderful review of the latest in this Marvel movie line.

    1. I really loved this movie Elf! It is very cool to have some many of the Avengers all in one movie, plus the Guardians of the Galaxy. I'm sure your daughter and son-in-law will love the movie too.

  2. I will admit I passed on Avengers Infinity Wars at the movie theatre. There was just one too many superhero movies for me though I recently watched Black Panther on an airplane, LOL.

    1. Frankly, the cost of going to the theater requires me to be a bit more selective Brenda. Avengers: Infinity War was one of the few I think is worth the money. Perhaps, you can rent it when it is released for rental instead. If you like the Marvel movies, you won't want to miss this one.

  3. Outside of Star Wars, I haven't seen too many Sci-Fi movies, but with your recommendation, I just might have to change that. Several friends who love Sci-Fi tell me that this is a great movie to see. So I think I will have to jump on the bandwagon and check this out!

    1. I really enjoyed it Olivia. Of course, now I can hardly wait for the sequel. If you do go see it, I would love to hear your opinion. Since you are not familiar with the Avengers, I would be interested to hear how "complete" the movie feels to you. I wondered if people who had not seen the previous movies would enjoy this one as much.

  6. Thank you for this review. I watched Marvel movies only with my boys (when one lived locally and during other visits). Some of the movies were a little, "eh". But this one is one I want to see. However, I'll wait for the DVD.
