‘Avengers: Infinity War’ is finally here

Finally, after years of hype, the movie event of the season hits the big screens with “Avengers: Infinity War.” Don’t be worried, because I know all about spoilers and giving away too much.  

Some people die, but like I said, I’m not giving away those bountiful tidbits. This is a film made to be experienced in the theater.  

The planet’s mightiest heroes find a reason to come together to fend off Thanos (Josh Brolin), a malevolent big purple baddie without an ounce of empathy in his being. He relishes genocide and anything and everything that comes with it. His lexicon encompasses the elimination of all who are residents of planet Earth.

Like last year’s enjoyable ride, “Thor: Ragnarok,” the story is laced with a plethora of comic tidbits and morsels. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) actually befriends Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and, as a show of good faith, gives him an eyeball that he had on him. Thor was sporting an eyepatch like his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins), but thanks to Rocket’s scheming ability is able to see clearly again. 

Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Captain America (Chris Evans), Spider-Man (Tom Holland), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Thor and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) are featured throughout the majority of the running time that clocks in at 2 hours and 49 minutes.  

It is amusing to see Star-Lord make a plan for the group, since he thinks Tony Stark’s plan stinks and his should rule. Downey’s character does some eye rolling whenever Star-Lord shows up.

The directing chores for this gem were handled by Anthony and Joe Russo. The duo recently directed the stylish “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” (2014). With “Avengers:  Infinity War,” the pair leave plenty of room for the storyline to be filled in next year. It’s like a horse and dangling carrot: leave the audience hankering for more. 

This “Avengers” adventure is a fun ride worth the wait. It delivers in virtually every single department and will have viewers leaving the theater wondering what will happen next. Viewers should stick around for the end credit sequence because it packs a doozy of an ending.

Mind you, Marvel Studios has a major plan to cross over all the storylines. I think this was the end of Part 3, if I’m not mistaken. I have much more to say, but if I said any more, bad people would hunt me down and hurt me.
