Avengers: Infinity War

The culmination of action packed heroics over the past 10 years of Marvel mania has resulted in a cinematic crossover like no other.

As the marvel universes’ collide to unite against Thanos, so too do the stories that led them there.

With such a prolific cast, comes the responsibility of orchestrating them, but no one could have done a better job than the Russo brothers who seamlessly intertwine each character’s story with the other to make viewing effortless for audiences young and old.

Though perhaps one of Marvel’s darkest plots yet, the film encapsulates it’s audience from the outset, providing both comedic highs and devastating lows, all whilst showcasing the vulnerability of Marvel’s most star-studded superheros, including the likes of Captain America and Spider Man.

T’ Challa must take over the throne in the midst of his fathers death. However, it soon becomes clear that the transition from prince to king is not a straightforward one, as his ruling is thrown into question when a long-lost relative comes to town.

Despite being under the Marvel label, this film has a very different imprint; focusing more on the dynamic of the plot and the subtleties of the storyline and less than on the all too familiar rampage of superhero action scenes.

Though the film does stand out from the usual Marvel protocol, some elements still remain, such as the quality and creativity of the cinematography which are of a superb standard.

It is clear from the outstanding reviews and appraisals for this film, both by critics and throughout this year’s awards season that the film has impressed audiences in their millions and continues to break both cultural and cinematic barriers alike.
