The Avengers movie series is full of action-packed and exciting movies, and with the release of Infinity War, the movies continue to be highly anticipated. The series began with the first Avengers movie releasing in 2012 and continued with Age of Ultron in 2015 and now has Infinity War added to the mix, which was released April 27, 2018.

Infinity War follows the current plot of the Marvel universe and features Thanos as the main antagonist. The Avengers unite to take down Thanos, who is on a mission to try and collect all six of the infinity stones, which are incredibly powerful objects that grant immense power to whoever wields all of them. The movie was very hyped up and for good reason. The movie was action-packed and intense, while also including some humor and some emotional scenes. Infinity War includes something for everyone, especially if you’re a big Marvel fan. Infinity War got an 84 percent  rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an 8.8/10 on IMDb, which is very good. The movie also took in $1.6 billion at the box office.

One of the most exciting things about the movie is all of the characters it includes from the Marvel Universe. The poster for Infinity War included 22 heroes on it, but there are many more in the movie. The heroes range from Iron Man to the Avengers to the Guardians of the Galaxy. The movie includes most, if not all, heroes from the previous Marvel movies. The movie also includes all of the original cast for the heroes.  

Infinity War did many things well, but one of the things that was done extremely well were the special effects. Everything in the movie looked very real, as if there were no special effects at all. One of the most impressive feats was turning Josh Brolin, the actor for Thanos, into the eight-foot purple menace you see in the movie. The company Digital Domain was tasked with making all of that happen and did a spectacular job of it.

Not only were the special effects good in Infinity War, but the acting was top notch, too. The cast features many familiar faces from previous Marvel movies such as Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Pratt as Star Lord, Chris Evans as Captain America, Tom Holland as Spider-Man, and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. Alongside the familiar faces, there were also a few new faces and heroes. There was Karen Gillan as Nebula, and Pom Klementieff as Mantis. The actors and actresses have obviously put in a lot of effort, that paid off a lot.

All in all, Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is a must see for any movie buff, or superhero fan, or anyone who wants to see a good movie. It has a great plot, great special effects, and great characters and acting. Infinity War is a great addition to the Marvel universe and is a great, if not the best, Avengers’ movie. If you’re ever bored on a rainy day, it might not be a bad idea to go and check it out.
