It’s so hard to write this review without spoiling anything because I really want you to go into this movie being fully surprised and experiencing it in all it’s glory and anguish.

There was both a lot and not so much happening in this movie. Here’s what we know: Thanos is collecting the Infinity Stones and will crush anyone who stands in his way. Our favourite heroes are all in danger and it terrifying to sit there and wait to see if your fave is going to survive. Just for the record, mine didn’t and I am still hella mad about it!
There are so many superheroes in this movie and seeing them all together is great joy and seeing them all meet each other is great fun. I had some reservations going into this however, would all the hype would just lead to great disappointment? And how were they going to give everyone equal and fair airtime? But guys, they did it. The really did it!
Because Marvel’s been setting this movie up for 10 years, it’s been laying the groundwork for all these characters and all these plot lines for this moment. It all culminates in this 2 hour and 40 minute movie of greatness. You were never left feeling lacking about who these characters were, this movie could’ve felt cobbled together (*cough* Justice League *cough*) but it was all seamless because we’ve been getting background and character development on all these characters for years.
It’s not the end though, so when you see that ending, remember that the untitled Avengers 4 movie is due in 2019. And whole bunch of sequels that have been planned and announced. But oh man, what a ride this movie is!

I mean, honestly, it’s been almost two weeks since I’ve seen Infinity War and I am still processing it all. So I think I will have to do a spoiler-filled post about all these thoughts and feels. I’m giving y’all a month!
