Our Take on the Movie
This was a movie that my whole family was excited about seeing. This past weekend we snuggled down for dinner and a movie!
We have all seen all of the other movies that have led up to this. After seeing this movie I have to say that it is one of the darker of the movies in the Marvel Universe of movies. Throughout the movie you will feel the true threat that is threatening humanity.
This movie brings together so many of the Marvel characters that you have seen over the past 18 films. The movie is non stop action and suspense. You are brought through the entire movie on pins and needles as you wonder what will happen and whether Thanos will collect all of the Infinity stones.
There were so many characters in this movie and what was great was that the movie gave most of the characters great moments. For me I have to say that some of the standouts for me were probably Zoe Saldana as Gamora, and Josh Brolin as Thanos. You believed their relationship as daughter and father respectively and you felt the emotional consequences of their relationship and what that relationship entailed. Thanos also was the main focus of this film. He is an amazing villain! There are points throughout the film that you have to wonder the motivations of Thanos, but there are people I have spoken to that some that have even said that at times they found themselves agreeing with some of Thanos’ reasonings.
I will say that you really need to have some concept of the other movies to be able to understand this movie. Also, you need to have some sense of the Marvel Universe in this movie as well because of all of the characters that are in the movie itself.
Overall, this is an amazing comic book movie, but even more so an incredible movie for young and old.
