Ten years ago there was an idea….
Every Marvel Cinematic Universe movie that has ever come out since the first Iron Man movie in 2008 has been building up to a cataclysmic event that no one would ever believe.
A story line right from the comics about the Infinity Stones, 6 cosmic entity that predate the universe, and holds an eternal amount of power.
In the movies Thanos has been attempting to gather all 6 stones so he can wipeout half of the universe existence. After his home is destroyed he set out to dominate all beings in the universe, to do this he knew he would have to collect the Infinity Stones.
If you watched all 18 movies you already know a lot about whats going on because they have been teasing the coming of Thanos since the first Avengers movie in 2012.
The movie was insane, and it picks up quite quickly. Because this movie is basically the beginning of a climax of this chapter in the MCU and it was building up to this movie for the last 10 years, everything happens almost instantly. Every loose end to stories on other MCU movies has been resolved on this movie.
The movie was completely devastating to watch. If you ever watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows part 1 and 2, this movie reminded me of that. Its not much I can tell you about the movie with out spoiling it for you, but just be prepared when you go it that its not completely a happy move.
Avengers Infinity war definitely had its funny moments, with the mix of Dr. Strange, Tony Stark and Peter Quill stealing the spot light in that category. There was some fun parts in the movie but for the most part it was a race against time to stop Thanos before he collects all the stones. The serious tone of the movie was set in the beginning and from there you wont know what to expect.
Avengers Infinity War is a movie to see, but if you need help understanding whats going on watch this video.
I give Avengers Infinity War a 9/10 and its my number 5 of my top 5 favorite MCU movie. With Black Panther still holding the number 1 spot on my list.
