As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

The day has finally arrived after waiting for so long for this Epic film. Avengers: Infinity War is out in the universe for everyone to see, and from the tickets sales, I believe everyone did this weekend. I know I'm ready to go see it again. I'm sure many are still processing everything, like I am. So how does one review such a film? I'm not sure, who knows what this review will become. Just know that I will stay spoiler free (I hope). What ever I do mention, happens previous to Avengers: Infinity War.

So much to talk about in this film, but very little can actually be said without giving away major spoilers. I will say, you have to make sure you see all previous films (including Black Panther) before seeing Avengers: Infinity War, if you haven't yet. So we know we left off that the Avengers had broken apart (Captain America: Civil War). Captain America and Iron Man, were not in speaking terms after their major fight. Thor was dealing with the destruction of Asgard (Thor: Ragnarok), Spider-man was sent back to just being a local hero by Tony Stark (Spider-Man: Homecoming), T'Challa goes home to Wakanda (Black Panther), Guardians are out there doing their thing, etc...

So we know that Avengers: Infinity War is set around 4 years after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 happen (Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said). We knew Thanos was coming, but we did not anticipate how they would introduce Thanos in Infinity War. Talk about ripping the band-aid off, the opening scene is brutal and we are introduced to how evil Thanos is. And the thing is while your trying to process those first scenes, your immediately thrown into something just as gut-wrenching as the beginning. The death count begins right away and I won't sugar coat it, they continue throughout the film. They are all hard to watch but some leave you confused and angry, while others you will cry.

Thanos has begun his plan to obtain all the Infinity stones, some are located on Earth, and others in the galaxy. His goal is to wipe out half of universe with the stones. I will say that the scenes for the Soul Stone and Mind Stone were the hardest to watch compared to the other stones. The whole ordeal of obtaining the stones is just hard to process, Thanos will stop at nothing to acquire them.

This movie is so condensed with moments, places and people, so its hard to sum up in a couple of paragraphs. It's heartbreaking but has its funny moments, and I mean, laugh out loud funny. The action in Wakanda is fantastic. You experience so many emotions,  but I have to say the gut-wrenching kind happens more often than others. I really don't want to say anymore, because I feel it would spoil the movie. If you haven't been out to a theater yet, then hurry up and make it happen. Oh, make sure to stay for the after-credit scene. Its literally at the end, so you have to sit and wait.

  1. Great review! Definitely hard not to mention spoilers. I saw it last week and loved it even though some parts were difficult to watch.
