Avengers Infinity War is the 19th movie Marvel has produced for cinematic viewing with many more in the pipeline. The movie was expected to break many box office records, which it has already done.
As of yesterday the movie had grossed 165 billion shillings worldwide! That is what it would cost to build four Thika Superhighways!
Onto the movie. I will limit the spoilers as much as I can. The movie is supposed to be the culmination of the previous 18 movies that take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The mad titan Thanos is the anti-hero in this movie with a long list of superheroes like Iron-man, Captain America, Black Panther and Scarlet Witch among many others taking him on.
The goal is simple. To stop the man from getting all the infinity stones in the universe. They are six. When they are all assembled together, they give the possessor God-like power.
To do what exactly? Create? Yes. Destroy? Yes. In essence, you can do whatever you like when you have all the stones.
Infinity War is a modern masterpiece that gives all its stars time to shine. But the actor who holds this movie together is Josh Brolin, who plays the role of Thanos.
He was so good that you even empathize with his character. Don’t forget Thanos is a psychopath intent on destroying large swathes of the universe.
All in all, I was left breathless at the end of the movie that was full of tumult, a few laughs and despair.
The last scene will leave viewers with a lot of questions but thank the movie Gods that the conclusion of this movie will come next year.
My conclusion: It gets a 9/10. Really good!
