The powerfull being Thanos arrives on earth hell bent on destroying half the human race. The several Avengers get together to defeat Thanos before he succeeds with his plan.
This has go to be the most famous cast ever: Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Josh Brolin as Thanos, Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Carrie Coon as Proxima Midnight, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr Stephen Strange, Idris Elba as Heimdell, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Tom Holland as Spider Man, Chris Pratt as Star Lord, Linda Cardellini as Laura Barton, Bradley Cooper as Rocket (voice), Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Dave Bautista as Drax, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Vin Diesel as Groot, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Anthony Mackie as Falcon, Sebastian Stan as White Wolf, Peter Dinklage as Untitled, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Paul Bettany as Vision, Benicio Del Toro as The Collector, Danai Gurira as Okoye and Letitia Wright as Shuri.
The big releases (like Ready Player One) have had some great posters this year. The poster for The Avengers Infinity War was excellently constructed. Thanos takes up most of the poster and it is this villain that will fascinate most.
There are a few stand out Avengers in this movie that excelled in either action, comedy or both. Chris Hemsworth as Thor brings his new improved personality from Thor Ragnarok into the mix. He is sarcastic and self depricating. Drax played by David Batista can be laugh out loud funny and he certainly didn't disappoint here. Mantis, also from the Guardians of the Galaxy was also quirky/funny. Star Lord is also comical as usual.
As for the action scenes: Iron Man, Spider Man, Scarlet Witch, Black Widow, Black Panther, Steve Rogers and Dr Strange were the stand outs with their various fighting techniques. I always enjoy the Hulk action sequences, so much power. But The Hulk only has a few scenes in this movie.
Starts off with images of space and spaceships and this was a great idea, it sparks your interest immediately. Thanos wants the Tesorat (a powerfull cube) from Loki and Thor. The hulk appears and fights Thanos. This first hand to hand combat sequence is unbelievable, two big men fighting it out. Thanos defeats them and now has two infinity stones. Loki tries one last time to defeat Thanos. Thanos kills Loki.
The Hulk arrives via a portal on earth, he says Thanos is coming. Dr Strange gets Tony Stark and Hulk in a meeting. The way the team comes together is cool. A big Spaceship arrives with soldiers of Thanos and they give a speech. Tony Stark replies "I'm sorry earth is closed today" hehehe, typical Tony. Banner finds it hard to turn into the hulk hehehe.
The soldiers of Thanos abduct Dr Strange (he has an infinity stone on him). But Spider man and Iron man stow aways on this spaceship as it leaves earth. The rest of the movie has to do with The Avengers trying to stop Thanos collecting the rest of the infinity stones. Because when he has them all he wants to rid the universe of half it's population.
The Guardians of the Galaxy visit the planet that sent a distress signal. Thor is saved by them. In a very funny scene, Star Lord imitates Thor with a british accent.
Drax (Dave Bautista) is in what I believe the funniest scene in the whole movie! Gamora asks a favour from Star Lord. It's a very emotional scene and Drax is in the background standing still. He watches them and he says "I've mastered the art of standing still, I become invisible to the eye" HAHAHA! Dave Bautista has always had great comic timing in the earlier films. If Dave Bautista did standard comedies I would crack up!
The space landscapes and rooms inside spaceships are cool. Peter Dinklage makes an appearance as a giant whose people were killed, he was forced to make a weapon for Thanos. Another memorable scene is when The Avengers meet The Guardians Of the Galaxy. Stark jokes around with Star Lord.
The best battle in the movie in my opinion is the battle in Wakanda. A large scale ground soldier vs soldier fight. Black Panther and The Avengers vs Thano's many soldier beasts, wow!
I won't spoil the ending. What a great fulfilling film. As I've said before these types of massive ensemble movies suffer from trying to give everybody a part and sometimes that's difficult. But I'm happy to say that Avengers Infinity Stone matches up characters well and they created mini teams, odd matchups that are memorable!
"What a great villain! Thanos has a great back story and this CGI animated character conveyed emotion extremely well. Josh Brolin, who voiced Thanos, brings years of drama work into this and you can tell"The action scenes with Thanos were awesome. In particular the hand to hand combat. The proportions of Thanos's build were grandious and intimidating. Absolutely fantastic character design. Enjoy the 100% entertaining 2hrs 29min.
