Brief Synopsis – The vast members of the MCU all must get together to fight off Thanos as he tries to acquire the rest of the Infinity Stones.

My Take on it – Unlike most of my reviews, this one will feature some spoilers, so if for some reason, you’ve never seen this film, go read my original spoiler free review Here.

I have always been a fan of superheroes and when they started the MCU films, I watched them when I could, but never ran to the theater on opening day to see any of them.

This film is the culmination of the 18 previous films and manages to bring together all of the various storylines in epic proportions in order to have the ultimate showdown between good and evil.

They do an amazing job here blending together the various storylines so that the characters from different films get to meet up and work together on whatever is necessary in the attempt to save the Universe from the madman Thanos.

Love the way that they use the message of how far one is willing to go for love in numerous circumstances that shows how universal that kind of feeling or sacrifice truly is.

The film kills just about all of the characters by the end and I’m quite curious to see how they will move forward from this point in the future of the MCU especially in the sequel to this film that is planned for April.

This is one of the very best films in the MCU and one of the most epic superhero movies ever made.

Can’t wait to see this again closer to the release date of the sequel.

Bottom Line – Great culmination of so many films of the MCU that finally brings things together for an epic battle between good and evil. They do an excellent job blending all the various storylines into one where they all get to work together on everything needed in order to try and save the universe.  Love the message about how far people will go for love which is resonated a few times over the course of the film. The way that they kill almost all of the main characters is quite shocking and it will be quite interesting to see where things will go when the sequel comes out next April.  One of the best films in the MCU. Can’t wait to see it again closer to when the next film comes out. Highly Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia –  Mark Ruffalo revealed that he was given a fake script due to his habit of accidentally spoiling past Marvel movies. He jokingly claimed in an interview that the fake script was better than the real one. (From IMDB)

Rating – Oscar Worthy (9/10) (no change from original review)
