Avengers Infinity War brings together an epic mash up of ten years worth of Marvel movies, where characters such as Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America, Doctor Strange and many more come together to fight for the universe. Guardians of the Galaxy, Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, Spiderman, Black Panther and Doctor Strange all unite and fight to prevent Thanos from taking over the universe.
Thanos, Gamora’s stepfather, becomes a threat to the universe with his grand plan to save the universe from poverty and starvation by eliminating, through genocide, the planets of half their life forms. This poses an interesting question about the concept of morality: is it right to put people out of their misery if their quality of life is suffering? Or is it just plain murder? In order for Thanos to complete his grand scheme, he must gain possession of each universe’s infinity stones, which are spread out among the universe. To gain each stone he must endure either a complex battle with a fellow character or a personal sacrifice. Each victory of claiming a stone only enhances his powers and Thanos becomes the biggest threat in any of the marvel movies, especially as his strength and power grows. With several smaller parallel plots carried out along the way, Thanos’ threat to the universe is the main plot of the movie.
With more than two and a half hours of screen time, Avengers Infinity War is one of the highest grossing films with a big budget, an all star cast, spectacular special effects and state of the art cinematography. No superhero dominates the movie, as each character plays an equally important role in the protection of the universe and the battle against Thanos. As much as the movie is a serious battle of saving the universe, there are many hilarious and light-hearted moments that fans will be sure to enjoy.
