Spoiler Free Movie Review: ‘Avengers: Infinity War’; Can a universe of superheroes stop Thanos?
By Quinn Roseboom
Last night I had a dream where I was in Infinity War, albeit it was as jumbled as dreams are and I didn’t really know the details of the actual movie at the time, but I remember Thanos trying to take an infinity stone from me. When I woke up, I immediately messaged my friends, “I can’t believe I’m actually seeing it today.” It didn’t disappoint.
“Avengers: Infinity War” is the culmination of 10 years of films, finally beginning the end of the current Avengers, and ringing in a new era. The Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole has brought people together and created a community the fans have spent countless hours in. This movie is going to take these same fan’s hearts and watch them crumble away.
The movie is a blending together of many things including comedy and tragedy with the Guardians and the Avengers. The two groups, or at least the one that converge, are amazing to finally see together. The war against Thanos takes place at different locations across the galaxy and across Earth, making the characters split up to fight.
Thanos is on a mission to collect the Infinity Stones. These are the same stones we’ve seen all throughout these movies for 10 years, and are scattered around the universe. If he gets the stones, he can do anything he wants with just the snap of his fingers. I don’t really know what else to say without spoilers. It’s an excellent film with tons of action and a few twists, but all I can recommend is to bring some tissues because it’s not a rollercoaster of emotions, it’s a drop tower.
“Avengers: Infinity War” is rated PG-13 and runs 2 hours and 40 minutes. There is one extra scene at the end of the credits.
