Avengers Infinity war is a culmination of all the 18 movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe aka MCU. The Russo Brothers were given the task of bringing together a roster of all the characters established in the last eighteen different movies over the past ten years into an ultimate team up movie AVENGERS INFINITY WAR. The movie is an epic transfusion of all genres with a comic taste. Though the plot has not been picked directly from the marvel comics yet the comic book fans can find Easter eggs and references from the comics. This movie is a perfect treat for marvel fans as if the studios has thrown a superhero party for them.
The movie revolves around Thanos, the Mad Titan and his quest of acquiring all the six infinity stones with his children(the black order)consisting of Cull Obsidian, Corvus Glaive, Ebony Maw and Proxima Midnight to wipe out half of the universe in order to bring balance to it. **SPOILERS AHEAD** The movie starts with Thanos attacking on asgardian rescue ship for the tesseract aka space stone. He kills Loki and Heimdall and left thor in the blown out ship . But Heimdall with the help of his dark magic sent Hulk to earth . The beginning 10 minutes conveys to the viewers how sassy and villainous is Thanos . Back on Earth the avengers were divided into two teams . Black Drawf and Ebony Maw attacked New York to get the time stone. But Doctor Strange, Iron Man , Wong and Spider Man tried to stop them. Doctor Strange, Iron Man and Spider Man went to the spaceship and killed Maw and finally journeyed to Titan to kill Thanos. Back on Earth, Vision and Wanda were attacked by Proxima Midnight and Corvus Glaive but Steve, Natasha and Falcon saved them and headed to The Avengers Office where they met Rhodey and Bruce Banner. Finally, they headed for Wakanda. In space, Thor met the Guardians of the galaxy. Gamora, Quill, Drax and Mantis went to Knowhere to find reality stone whereas Thor, rocket and Groot journeyed themselves to Nidavellir to forge Stormbreaker with the help of Eitri. In Knowhere, Thanos took Gamora to his sanctuary ship to blackmail her for the soul stone’s location. He sacrificed Gamora’s life to get the soul stone on the planet Vormir . There is a huge fight on the planet Titan, displayed very well by the Russo Brothers. The battle of Wakanda is also picturized on a large scale.
The movie is a treat for all the comic book fans. Despite the presence of 68 Marvel characters, the directors and the writers have tried to give each and every character their justified screen time. You will be sitting on the edge of the seat many times. Its a roller-coaster ride full of emotions and humor and if you are a true Marvel fan then the ending will tear your heart into pieces. This one’s going to be an all time blockbuster. I will give it 4.5/5 stars.
