Like most families, we are huge fans of the Marvel franchise. Your kind of in for an inch, in for a mile at this point, but the movies still make for great family entertainment. Fresh off the success of Black Panther and previous Marvel releases, it’s no surprise Avengers: Infinity Wars boat raced out to a record setting opening weekend.
Infinity Wars was filled with intensity and raw energy from the opening confrontation until the post-credit scene. Thanos who is played by Josh Brolin, wreaked havoc on the collection of superheroes as he embarked on his quest to capture all of the infinity stones. He was by far the most crucial and powerful enemy that any of the Marvel characters had to face and it is apparent the likes of Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans) and others will have to face him again. In a movie full of dominant and positive superheroes, it was the antagonist Thanos who emerged as the character that grabbed my attention. Even my oldest son said Thanos played an excellent villain.
The writers did a magnificent job of infusing more than 20 of the Marvel character’s individual stories to form one unique action-packed adventure that in it’s own way brought all of the previous movies together. On the other hand, my youngest son was a little disappointed because his favorite character Ant-Man wasn’t in the movie. I informed him that Ant-Man and the Wasp will be in theaters on July 6th and I would definitely take him to see it.
Avengers: Infinity War is the best of the three Avengers movies and definitely worth all of the hype. The movie splendidly injected fun and humor in a situation that was clearly dire and drastic as key characters met their fate. The ending was both surprising and frustrating because I won’t get any clarity until the fourth installment is released in 2019, but don't let that deter you from seeing the movie. In conclusion, Avengers: Infinity War was extremely entertaining and it made for a fun movie outing for my entire family; despite not having Ant-man.
