If the goal of The Avengers: Infinity War is to spark debate, speculation, raise question and eyebrows, the film managed to do just that. Before you read further into this article, we would try our best not to give any spoiler. The moment every Marvel die-hard fans have been waiting for is here, it’s the fourth Avengers movie that finally unite the universe in one screen. Bringing a very strong enemy like Thanos (Josh Brolin), who came from outer space and was very power hungry requires more than one hero. You could find almost all (except Hawkeye) Marvel heroes like Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Ironman (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), or Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) united on this movie.
Directed by the Russo brothers, Anthony and Joe, Infinity War could make the comic readers of Marvel rejoice because some of the scenes here were taken out of the comic book. For those who haven’t followed previous Avengers movies, comics or any Marvel superheroes installments, then you might want to reconsider your choice to enter the cinema. The movie was packed with lots of action, Marvel’s jokes, heroic moves as well as fear. Unlike previous enemies, Thanos being the strong being like he is, brought an indefinite terror to all the heroes even the bravest one. The scenes were often split into two or three different locations, and the changes were fast, if you didn’t know Marvel before this fast-paced change might shock you.
Bringing these many stories, characters and personalities in one movie is no easy task. In 149 minutes, we were left with many plot holes that make this movie less full and meaningful than previous Marvel movies. Some stories were cut short, and some parts didn’t have enough time to explain themselves to the viewers. Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) played a pivotal part in this one since he possessed the eye of Agamotto a.k.a time stone. He was also smart, so he might keep some tricks on his sleeves. The dead scenes in Infinity War were more realistic and cruel than before. There was no resurrection, saves on last minute, or sudden charge of power that could avoid our beloved heroes from their perpetual fate. It was so emotional seeing the death of these heroes, but it provided great tear-jerking moments. This movie would leave you bewildered and in awe at the same time. It is now playing on cinemas across Indonesia.
