Thanos: You should have gone for the head. [snaps his fingers]

Ten years of movies this movie is the nineteenth film released by Marvel Studios in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hinted from most of the other movies this movie is about the Avengers and allies teaming up to attempt to stop the powerful mad titan called Thanos who is gaining the power of the infinity gauntlet. This is part one of the story where the untitled sequel will be released in 2019. With a budget between $316-400 million this movie made $2.045 billion at the box office .The filmmakers decided very early on to turn the film into a “smash-and-grab heist movie” told from the point of view of the lead villain, Thanos.

First movie of Marvel Cinematic Universe to enter the IMDB top 10 movies of all time. Also this is the most expensive film from the Marvel Universe to date, and the most expensive superhero film of all time so far. Making 1 billion dollars in 11 days it is the fourth movie to gross over 2 billion dollars worldwide. At 156 minutes it is now the longest Marvel superhero film out there. There are close to 3,000 shots in the film, with almost 2,900 of those being VFX shots. Stan Lee’s cameo, is where we see the comic book legend playing the school bus driver.

After 18 movies leading to a movie like this, you knew going in a lot of stuff was going to happen. Thanos appears right away on-screen and is a threat right away. Then the Avengers meet each other quickly. Action then consumes the bulk of the movie. Some done well, other fights is nothing you have already seen before. Then Thanos continues to dominate in a well written way. He personally kills more than ten characters from Marvel. The ending is possibly the best ending from all Marvel movies from the last ten years. I recommend Infinity War to everyone who has watched all the other movies and people who like the villain Thanos.

7.6/10
