Happy Sunday Novas! This past weekend the Marvel Avengers: Infinity War movie released in theaters. Today I will provide my spoiler free review of the movie! This movie was great and to stay away from spoilers, I will provide a brief overview of the movie.
Plot: Infinity War brings together the Marvel characters and their independent movies over the last few years. The characters are brought together by an impending threat who goes by the name of Thanos. Thanos is searching for the Infinity Stones in the Universe to be able to bring balance by genocide. 2 of the Infinity Stones rest with our heroes of Doctor Strange and Vision, so naturally, Thanos and his tyranny come back to Earth.
Consistency was something that I was worried about in the movie. When you are melding so many storylines together, you can easily miss a few pieces. I was pleased that Infinity War (from what I have seen of the preceding movies) matched up the characters, locations and state of being of each hero to a T.
Visuals & Sounds – The cinematic quality of the movie was pretty good. If there is one critique, the giant Iron Man suit with it’s pilot looked a bit weird in a few scenes. Each location of our heroes, is given the breathtaking quality that it received in the independant film.
Characters: We catch up with all of our favorite Marvel Characters: Captain America, Ironman, The Hulk, Thor, Loki, Black Widow, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Starlord and more are united in Infinity War. We are even graced with the side characters that we love like Suri and Rocket! Each character provided their distinct personalities and upon meeting new heroes, we receive more banter that pushes the movie forward. One of my favorite interactions is between Tony Stark and Doctor Strange!
Action: Marvel movies are known for cool action and battle scenes. With Infinity War, since there are so many main players in the movie, there’s constant action or conflict throughout the movie. Ever scene felt important so my recommendation is to make sure to empty your bladder before sitting down to this 2 hour and 30 minute masterpiece. The integration of the different battle styles from each character makes for an innovative new movie.
Final Thoughts: I have really enjoyed the Marvel Avengers: Infinity War movie. The plot was good, it’s another one of those plots that causes you to think about WHY the villain is doing what they are doing. All of the characters were used properly and the story made sense. Don’t forget to watch the ending credits and be prepared to be SHOOK throughout the movie.
