Avengers Infinity War

Finally, after years of hype, the EVENT movie of all other movies hits the screens with “The Avengers: Infinity War.”

Don’t be worried, because I know all about spoilers and giving away too much. Some people die, but like I said I’m not away those bountiful tidbits. This is something one should experience in the theatre because that is what it was made for.

The planet’s mightiest heroes find a reason to come together to thwart off Thanos (Josh Brolin), a malevolent big purple baddie without an ounce of empathy in his being. He relishes genocide and anything and everything that comes with it. His lexicon encompasses elimination of everything and anyone that is a resident of our planet earth.

Like last year’s enjoyable ride that was “Thor: Ragnarok,” the story is laced with a plethora of comic tidbits and morsels. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) actually befriends Rocket Raccoon, (the voice of Bradley Cooper) and as a show of good faith gives him an eyeball that he had on his person. Thor was sporting an eyepatch like his father Odin, (Anthony Hopkins) but with thanks to Rocket’s scheming ability is able to see clearly again.

Doctor Strange, (Benedict Cuimberbaych), Captain America, (Chris Evans), Spider-Man (Todd Holland), Iron Man, (Robert Downey Junior.), Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Thor, and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) are in the majority of the running time which clocks in at 2 hrs. 40 min.

What is amusing is to see Star Lord make a plan for the group, since he thinks Tony Stark’s plan sucks and his should rule. Even Robert Downey Junior’s character does some eye rolling whenever he shows up.

The directing chores for this gem were handled by Anthony and Joe Russo. The duo recently handled the fun and stylish “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” in 2014. With “The Avengers: Infinity War,” the pair leave plenty open for the storyline to be filled out next year. It’s like the horse and the dangling carrot: leave them hankering for more.

It is a fun ride worth the wait, and it delivers in virtually every single department because it will have viewers leaving and wondering what’s next. Again, one needs to stick around for the very end credits sequence because it backs a doosy of an ending.

Mind you, Marvel Studios has a major plan to crossover all the stories and tales. I think this was the end of Phase 3, if I’m not mistaken.

So, I have much more to say, but like I said earlier if I said anymore, bad people would hunt me down and find me.

Grade: A
