Many Marvel fans have been eagerly waiting for the coveted ‘Avengers: Infinity Wars’ movie. It was announced to release on May 4 but when the release date was pushed up to Apr. 27, many fans including myself were more excited and couldn’t handle the anticipation. Knowing that this movie would feature many of our favorite heroes implied many of them could die. If you read Marvel, you would have an idea of who was on the chopping block but if you are a true Marvel fan then you know well that they don’t always play by the rules.

As a Marvel fan I couldn’t help but worry about my childhood heroes, yet I was incredibly excited see them all come together. This movie was huge, it brought The Avengers, Doctor Strange, The Guardians of the Galaxy and many others, including the infamous Thanos together to make the best movie of the year.

In previous Marvel movies, there were many hints as to the coming battle and the involvement of the Infinity Stones. At the end of ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, Thanos’ ship was seen standing face to face with the Asgardian ship. Thanos was on a mission to collect all six of the Infinity Stones: soul, reality, power, mind, time, and space in order to place them in his gauntlet so that he could “cleanse” the world by wiping out half of the universe. The first of the Avengers to face him were Thor and The Hulk who were unsuccessful. Hulk returned to Earth to warn the rest of the Avengers and that’s when the real battle began.

Throughout the movie were a couple of storylines. Between Black Panther, Bruce Banner, Vision, Captain America and the rest of the Avengers fighting on the fronts of Wakanda to the Guardians, Spider-man, Doctor Strange and Iron Man fighting on Thanos’ home planet Titan, I was on the edge of my seat.

After watching the movie I can honestly say that it was not a disappointment. The chemistry and banter between the characters really tied the movie together. The visual effects were outstanding. Overall, it was a fantastic film but this movie was about a war and in war, people die. It brought tears to my eyes to see my childhood idols turn to ash and fade away but it wouldn’t be a Marvel movie if there weren’t some emotionally damaging scenes.

As much as I enjoyed this movie, it did leave me with quite a few questions but with any Marvel movie you are guaranteed a clue as to what comes next and that’s exactly what they gave me. So, if you’re looking to watch the movie of a lifetime, Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Infinity Wars’ is the movie for you.
