An unpredictable cinematic journey inclusive of ten years span and developing the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” pulls into the silver screen with the ultimate, unprecedented, deadliest motion picture drama of all time. The Avengers and their known Super Hero allies seem so wilful to sacrifice everything they love and believe in order to defeat the powerful Thanos before his goal of demolition brings an end to the universe.

Plot:

In this movie, Thanos (Josh Brolin), whose goal to acquire six powerful cosmic gems called “Infinity Stones” have been important elements in previous Marvel Cinematic Universe. The antagonist has a goal of eliminating half of all life in the universe so that he can save the universe resources. Trying to stop him from his dangerous mission are almost all of the silver screen Marvel Superheroes, including Avengers Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Captain America/Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and others along with Spider-Man (Tom Holland), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), and the Guardians of the Galaxy, led by Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana). This ultimate spine-chilling epic takes place on several places of Earth and Universe as Thanos and his ferocious army becomes unstoppable in order to fulfill their master’s wish to find all the stones. It all leads up to a fine and tragic climax with unpredictable consequences.

Our Take On The Movie:

The villain, Thanos, has been well-designed, well-plotted to be a Marvel villain. His mission is simple: He wants to eradicate half of all living beings in the universe so the remaining half can utilize the left resources without fear of extinction. He doesn’t want to demolish lives and planets for just fun, he does this which I believe is to achieve his goal being the godly saver of the universe and thereafter ruling the entire universe under his command. In a usual cinematic plot where a villain believes he is the hero of his own story, and Thanos, in this case, considers himself as that hero. But when he finally manages to wipe out half of all life in the universe, he isn’t in a celebratory mood, maybe he has to sacrifice too much for that. He sits down in meadow-hill side wretched hut and watches as the sun comes out, and thinks deeply about what he has to do to attain his ultimate target. His expression wasn’t one of a celebrated conqueror, but of a tired soul who seems feeling glad as it was finally over.

Let’s give some credit to where it is due, the writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who have been doing marvelous job in creating the Marvel Cinematic Universe and also by developing one of the most powerful villainous character in a fantasy movie, Thanos and for tackling the unthinkable and rigorous work of bringing ten years of all the Marvel characters together meaningfully; so successfully.

The script for Avengers: Infinity War beats the popularity and magnimous VFX of the previous Marvel films. This is not Rambo or The Last Stand. There are lots of surprises in this film with chips of thrill-some adventures and mindblowing actions. In total, Infinity War is a well-oriented script-turned-movie that is designed to entertain and make the audience go wow about it.

Rating: 4/5
