The War of Infinity
The moment that every comics, especially Marvel lovers has come. After ten years journey in entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, one of the last movies of Marvel Studios’- “Avengers: Infinity War” released in Azerbaijani cinemas May 3, 2018 and I watched it immediately. The movie made me went through many emotions; entertained, sad, shocked, angry, confused and so on.

Science Fiction & Fantasy genre movie Infinity War is the first part of Avengers’ last journey. Russo brothers who directed marvelous movies of Marvel Cinematic Universe direct the movie. Based on the comics of Stan Lee, this is the most intense movie of MCU films so far. It has grossed over $808 million worldwide, making it the second highest-grossing film of 2018. First part of the last movie is about alliances between Avengers team, actions of new members of the team and the searches of Thanos for Infinity Stones.
Which characters you will see in the movie?
Most famous characters of this universe including Robert Downey, Jr.'s Iron Man, Chris Evans' Captain America, Chris Hemsworth's Thor, and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, other MCU heroes including Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier, Chadwick Boseman's Black Panther, Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, Tom Holland's Spider-Man, and Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange, and the Guardians of the Galaxy crew including Chris Pratt's Star-Lord and Zoe Saldana's Gamora, Dave Bautista’s Drax, Vin Diesel’s Groot and Bradley Cooper’s Rocket appeared in the movie.
What is Infinity War is about?
The heroes of MCU are assembling to defeat the biggest enemies of all time that been faced by Avengers and they are ready to sacrifice everything to defeat the powerful Thanos who is willing to destroy world and put end to universe by collecting infinity stones. The play of the actors of MCU for 10 years makes people keep these actors as real heroes in their mind, Robert Downey, Jr.'s Iron Man became is one of the examples of it. Every characters unique qualities, being funny but serious, strong but weak, bad but good, and most importantly hero but at the same time human made Infinity War more interesting. Minor mistakes that made the duration of the movie longer, unnecessary operations did not did not reduce the interest.
Who is Thanos?
The movie was more like the introduction of Thanos more than another big fight of the heroes, but the second part of the movie will be the greatest fight of MCU. Thanos is the evil who collects the stones of infinity to rule the world. But his only weakness, his adoptive daughter Gamora is not on his side, but in the side of good. Infinity War divides into several parts that includes Thanos’ searches to stones and heroes assembling to defeat him.
During the movie, you see the alliance of Iron Man with Doctor Strange to protect Time stone, GOG members’ introduction with other Avengers, Thor’s search for new hammer, and Wakanda Republics’ union with Capitan America’s team to protect Vision. You will also see the bad guys of other MCU movies in whole different view and this is just one of things that made me shock. The death of heroes and confused ending more amazed me.
What is the message of Infinity War and why you should watch it?
As a message of this story, I saw the heroes’ sacrifices and lost just to save a life of innocent people. Moreover, who is hero and villain anyway? Can we consider that every hero has a bad side and every villain has weak points? May a bad person sacrifice his or her life just to save one hero who can save it all? I recommend it to every comics lover. It was worth to wait and after the shocking ending, I cannot wait for the second part of the movie. I can undoubtedly say that all the audience of hall loved the movie and other MCU fans will LOVE this movie.
