Thanos is on a quest to find all of the Infinity stones in order to gain complete power over the universe. The broken avengers must join forces with their new found friends from within the galaxy in order to stop him before it’s too late.
The three year wait for the third instalment of the Avenger franchise has finally hit the cinemas and with everybody going wild for it already after only a couple days of being released, this only heightened my eagerness to hit the cinema this afternoon and watch it. With heavy queues full of kids, I perhaps should’ve waited for an evening showing rather than an early afternoon one but hindsight is a wonderful thing.
Avengers: Infinity War was exciting, fun, fast paced and full of all our favourite Marvel characters plus Thanos taking centre stage as he waged war against everyone in his mission to acquire the six infinity stones needed for complete domination. I was slightly disappointed that Ant-Man and Hawkeye didn’t manage to make the movie after being a huge part of Captain America: Civil War but with the likes of Dr Strange, Ironman, Thor, Black Panther plus many many more the disappointment was only slight and very brief.
For me Chris Hemsworth as Thor was once again the highlight of this Avengers movie as he has been for much of the franchise and his relationship with the Guardians of the Galaxy guys was great to watch unfold. I loved watching Thanos too, he was the perfect villain as he was an already incredibly powerful foe but mix that with the powers he was acquiring along with his army of loyal subjects he was definitely the best and biggest threat that both The Avengers and The Guardians of the Galaxy have faced.
The action scenes were superb and the CGI was outstanding and the whole of the production team allowed enough on screen time for everyone to play a meaningful and important role. I was a little worried going into this movie that there were simply too many big high profile characters for them to manage and tell a decent story, but it was executed brilliantly.
With so many reviews already hitting the internet concerning this latest Marvel creation, I’ll just be repeating what every other review before mine has said. It’s well worth the money to go and check it out in the cinema and it’s full of surprises that will leave you feeling extremely satisfied with your expenditure. Also don’t make the rookie mistake like some of the people in the cinema with me did today and leave before the end of the credits as there is an obligatory end scene which allows for a continuation of the story.
