“Avengers: Infinity War” Movie Story Line:
Following the destruction of Asgard, and having acquired the Power Stone from the planet Xandar, Thanos and his adoptive children Cull Obsidian, Ebony Maw, Proxima Midnight, and Corvus Glaive intercept the ship with the surviving Asgardians to extract the Space Stone from the Tesseract. Thor, Loki and Hulk cannot stop them. Heimdall uses the Bifröst to send Hulk to Earth, then is killed by Glaive. Killing Loki and taking the Space Stone, Thanos departs with his children and obliterates the ship.
Hulk crash-lands at the Sanctum Sanctorum of Stephen Strange and his major domo Wong in New York City, and reverts to Bruce Banner. After hearing of Thanos’ intention to kill half the universe’s population, Strange enlists the help of Tony Stark. Maw and Obsidian arrive to retrieve the Time Stone in Strange’s possession. After a battle including Peter Parker, Maw captures Strange; Stark and Parker pursue Maw’s spaceship while Wong remains to protect the sanctum. Banner contacts the other Avengers.
Marvel’s most powerful villain to date so very simple? Can a person single-handedly threaten the existence of humanity? To find out the answers, watch the movie on the big screen.
All the superheroes get their moments to shine, and while some naturally take predominance over the others, no role feels minor at any point. Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely’s efforts need special mention for putting together the most crucial and challenging element in a film of this magnitude – the screenplay. From the film’s opening moments, their goal to create a clear and coherent narrative is evident. The Russo Brothers take this material and enhance it to bring out some fantastic performances, along with the large-scale action one has come to expect from the MCU. Keeping this balance is not only tricky but also essential to maintain audience interest over a period of two and a half hours. There’s barely a dull scene; in fact, MCU’s trademark humour is intact and paired with several gut-wrenching moments that will be hard to forget once the credits roll.
