Avengers: Infinity War
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.
Superheroes amass to stop intergalactic sociopath Thanos from acquiring a full set of Infinity Stones and wiping out half of all life in the universe.

If you aren’t a Marvel fan this film won’t convert you, but if you have liked any of the previous films you will like this too.
For a movie with this much riding it, to come out not feeling disappointed, is a **massive** achievement. While I absolutely do love it I had some things that I felt were maybe imperfect about _Infinity War_, but my biggest concern was that it seemed like it would be absolutely meaningless to somebody who didn’t put in the effort of watching the 18 movies leading up to it. You can probably assuage that fear though, because I went to see it with two people who had only seen _Black Panther_ at this point, and they both loved it, with minimal confusion.
Personally? I can’t wait to see it again. This is probably the most excited I’ve been about the second watch of an MCU film since the first _Avengers_.
_Final rating:★★★★ – Very strong appeal. A personal favourite._
The first half is some of the best action in a Disney Marvel entry yet, and the other half is so stupid that it sours the whole MCU experience.
RELEASED IN 2018 and directed by Anthony & Joe Russo, “Avengers: Infinity War” chronicles events when the Avengers team-up with several allies to defeat the cosmic despot Thanos, whose goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones to attain unimaginable power and radically solve one of the Universe’s most challenging problems.
The story focuses on Thanos, Thor and the Guardians of the Galaxy, especially Gamora, as well as Iron Man, Doctor Strange and Spider-Man. The rest of the cast members are decidedly peripheral, e.g. Black Widow, Captain America, Black Panther, Vision and Scarlet Witch.
This is easily the least of the Avengers trilogy. Not to mention “Captain America: Civil War” (2016) and “Thor: Ragnarok” (2017) are significantly more compelling and all-around entertaining. Actually, all three Thor flicks are palpably superior, as is “Iron Man 2” (2010). If you haven’t already, I encourage you to watch these movies prior to viewing “Infinity War,” as well as “Black Panther” (2018) and the two “Guardians of the Galaxy” flicks (2014/2017); otherwise you’ll likely be lost because all these movies lead up to this one.
“Infinity War” is certainly an ambitious comic book movie in that it notably juggles so many super-beings, but this lack of focus isn’t conducive to suspense or great drama. It’s okay at best with overkill CGI and the big battle in the closing act with the easily slaughtered four-armed dog-creatures is curiously dull. But the film gets extra points for a bold, poignant climax, which sets up the 2019 sequel.
In any case, People giving it the top rating and calling it “the greatest superhero movie ever” need a serious reality check.
THE MOVIE RUNS 2 hours, 29 minute and was shot in New York City, Scotland and Philippines with studio work done in Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayetteville, Georgia. WRITERS: Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
