10 years ago, “Iron Man” appeared on the big screen. Known as one of Marvel's B-List heroes, what chance would be have of being a successful movie, It turns out, it was the right call. 10 years and 19 movies later, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going stronger than ever.
The 19th film in the MCU has finally hit theaters in the form of “Avengers: Infinity War”. The movie does not disappoint. The story starts before the opening logos are even off the screen, and it doesn't stop until the credits. Actually, this is an MCU movie, so it didn't stop until the scene after the credits.
With all the speculation about actor contracts and who has how many movies left, your head will be spinning trying to guess what's next. The movie has an endless supply of twists and turns, yet still manages to keep a solid flow.
My biggest concern when they announced a movie with so many of the beloved heroes, was that it could easily become choppy as they tried to fit multiple stories into the run-time of one movie. This certainly wasn't the case. Although I wouldn't advise looking away from the screen because you may miss a transition. Not that looking away will be an issue here. It takes some very talented filmmakers to have this many characters and locations, and make it into a terrific piece of art.
Many people have asked why the Marvel Comics based movies have done so well while the DC Comics based movies continue to struggle. I believe it is because Marvel and Disney have found a way to make you really care about the characters. Even in these fantastic sci-fi style scenes, the emotion feels very real. You connect to what you're watching, and that is what makes it all work.
That is thanks in large part to the cast. The cast in “Avengers: Infinity War” is enormous in both size and talent. It's impressive that a cast of this size can all be so perfectly picked. They all bring so much heart to their characters, it's hard to imagine them being played by anyone else, even though some actually were to start with.
There is no doubt that World Wide Blog of Movies founder, Jeremy, would call this movie “Amazing”. Although I don't think he would have stopped there. I definitely recommend this to anyone into fun action movies. Remember this is a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which means stay until the credits are over. Also, the standard cliffhangers are replaced by scenes giving the audience the desire to see the next one before leaving the theater.
