Avengers: Infinity War
REVIEW BY HAMZA POONAWALA
10 ago, MARVEL started something known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), with Iron Man. In those 10 years, they made 18 films, all leading to one conclusion. 10 years later, Destiny Arrives…. Avengers: Infinity War, is the nineteenth film in the MCU, and one part of the epic conclusion of the MCU. 10 years’ worth of build up has lead us to this point. But the real question is, was it worth it?
The plot is quite simple. Thanos-The Mad Titan, the big purple CGI baddie, is on a quest to collect all the six Infinity Stones, after which, his aim is to wipe out half of the universe, in order to restore balance to the universe. The Avengers-Earth’s mightiest Hero’s, along with the Guardians of the Galaxy, and other heros, such as Black Panther, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, The Winter Soldier (Now known as the White Wolf)-just to name a few- will have to join forces in order to fight off this psychopath and prevent the destruction of the universe.
When it comes to characters, Thanos is one that outshines everyone else. Josh Brolin does an outstanding job at voicing the giant, and even emoting him in ways I couldn’t think of. This film also shows another side to Thanos, and even makes me sympathise with him wanting to destroy half the universe, considering all the sacrifices he had to go through, especially one that proves that the Mad Titan isn’t only about death and destruction. Every time Thanos enters the big screen, there’s a chill that goes down my spine. Unlike other MCU villains, he has a set agenda, and will do everything to complete it. He undoubtedly, has to be one of the best MCU villains, or at par with Loki and Killmonger.
REVIEW BY THE Y FACTOR
Well, does it get bigger than this? Ah hec, that’s a rhetoric. All I will say, Iron Man finds a new pal in Dr. Strange, Thor builds a relation with Rocket Raccoon and Steve Rogers is doing what he always does, fight, with no clear strategy and Hulk is having, well, Hulk issues. All this to fight the BAAP of them all, THANOS.
Josh Brolin literally steals the show and shows that there can be multi-dimensional characters in the MCU.
The movie is one long battle scene, where the entire MCU parivaar is congregating, all for the final showdown next year, which will be somewhat like the HOBBIT & BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES, I guess, ONE WHOLE FIGHT TO FINALE…. With some new characters thrown in…
Does it have The Y Factor : YES
RATING : 4/5
