Avengers: Infinity War Spoiler Free Review


Good Afternoon Lovelies, 

Three days it has taken me to finally sit down and write this review lovelies. Since Friday night, my emotions have been all over the place and it is all because of a group of superheroes and one giant supervillain. After months of speculation, nostalgia and hype, Avengers: Infinity War reached our cinema screens. And it is EPIC!

Picking up where Thor: Ragnarok’s post-credit sequence ended, the Asgardian ship saving the planet's population has been destroyed with many on board, including Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) being beaten by the evil Thanos (Josh Brolin) and his children. All due to his desire to get hold of the six infinity stones that would make him the mightiest villain around.

As his vengeance spreads around the galaxy, Thor is joined by the Guardians of the Galaxy (Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff and Dave Bautista), Iron Man/Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr), Black Panther/T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), Captain America/Steve Rodgers (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hulk/Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), Vision (Paul Bettany), Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and even more to try and take him down one step at a time. However, as his power grows, each world within the Marvel universe is tested, destroyed and ruined by his presence, leading to an amazing ending that will have you thinking about it for minutes, hours and days after.

The Russo Brothers knew that they would have a big task on their shoulders when creating this Marvel giant. After months of building up the hype that has left many fans jumping up and down, with sneak peeks at Comic-Con and a fan event in London, there was so much speculation of what was to come and they completely blew audiences away by changing everything we all knew about the franchise.

From the opening moments, when the villains are automatically thrown into the world of the best superheroes on the big screen, you know that this story is not going to be like you thought it was. Brolin brings to life a threatening menacing figure, with a heart that makes the already fragile Avengers even more breakable. Yet, they are able to reunite and command the screen with the help of those who haven’t been in their realm before, including Peter Quill (Pratt) and a game-changing performance from Doctor Strange himself Benedict Cumberbatch.

With so many names and characters within a story, it would have been easy to go down the Justice League and not explore them in hopes that all audience members would just get on with it. However, Infinity War doesn’t do this. Using each character to build an arc within the story, the film captures them in fighting and fragile moods bringing everything that audiences who have followed them for the past 10 years wanted.

Travelling through space and time, every character is tested with those years and made to show they best fighting ability. Every scene, every turn and every closely crafted second brings out the best. Even when they aren’t filled with action, but witty one-liners including a running rabbit joke and a macho fight between Chris Hemsworth and Pratt’s characters. 

As for the ending mentioned before, if you weren’t sure if you could wait a year for the second part, you won’t want to but one thing for sure is, you will need it to recover. And then be blown away again. The ending keeps you wondering what you have just witnessed in the last five minutes and leaves the plot open to blow away all expectations again. Sadness is rippled through it, especially the touching moment between Peter Parker and Tony Stark.

Superhero films are being made for audiences because we want to see this action on screen. We need to escape our worlds and fall into another filled with people who are going to make it okay again and this film does both things. Whilst there is no reassurance at the end of this film, it makes your mind runaway and each audience member can leave knowing that an epic battle is going to happen and whilst they may not all come out alive, they will make things okay again before the worst happens.

The Russo brothers, the cast and the crew have made a masterpiece that future filmmakers are going to have to work hard to beat. Including themselves with the second instalment next year.

There so, the team won’t have to avenge this…
