12 August 2018; “Avengers: Infinity War” Review

Now it is…Review Time!

I watched the film in May, and I apologize that I am doing the review now, since there are other aspects in life that keeps one busy, such as university assignments and/or exams.

With gorgeous visuals, fun and strong performances, emotional moments, and easily one of the biggest blockbusters of the year (as well as probably in film history), “Avengers: Infinity War” is one Marvel film that every MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) and superhero viewer has been waiting for, one that keeps audiences hanging on the edge of their seats, and leaves fans highly excited and having great expectations for the sequel coming in 2019.

This being the 7th film of Phase 3, as well as the 19th film out of the whole MCU, and serving as a sequel to “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (2015), the film follows the superheroes we know and love, as they join together to fight against Thanos (played brilliantly by Josh Brolin) before he collects all Infinity Stones that will grant him the power of universal chaos.


Action Sequences:

Entertaining as our favourite protagonists face off against their most powerful antagonist yet.


Superb, with even actors that may come as a surprise to audiences, such as Peter Dinklage (who you may know from the “Game of Thrones” series).


Intriguing, fun, and of course memorable. Female viewers for example might enjoy the strong personality of Okeye from the world of Wakanda, although her shining moments are best portrayed in “Black Panther” released earlier this year in February.

Efforts from Filmmakers:

The filmmakers certainly did a praise-worthy job of putting together many heroes, some from their own standalone films, to create a massive team of superheroes in order to prevent Thanos’ plans, as previously mentioned.


Surprising and shocking, you might need a Kleenex for this one, which will not be spoiled here.


This ranges from being tense, melancholy, and thrilling.


Simply dynamite.


Even though I have not read the comics, the storyline is attractive thanks to its gripping, exciting, and rather unexpected elements.

Visuals:Since it is Marvel, once again it is stunning.



Without giving too much away, there is a death count that may be unpleasant for viewers, as some beloved characters are killed by you-know-who.


As it is a Marvel film, one of the predictable aspects is a villain that needs to be prevented.

Overall, this is one massive thrill ride and a must-see for all fans of Marvel, action and the superhero genre. On a personal note, this is one of my favourite 2018 films so far, and possibly one of my favourite films ever, and I am eagerly and highly exhilarated for Part 2 of “Infinity War”.
