It all been leading up to this apparently!!How many of them have you seen?
I suppose it depends on whether you are a fan of the Marvel universe of characters.
If you are coming to this cold without having seen what came before, there is a chance you might be somewhat confused as to why there are so many of them in this movie and there are quite a few including some brand new ones namely Black Panther, which I am sure is still playing in a movie theatre somewhere.
If I am honest this amount of characters to keep track of in the story line of this movie is maybe just a few too many. While the other series of individual movies gave each character time to breathe, this can feel at times like the filmakers are going “Oh who did we leave out, better make sure to include them”. This results in a rather long running time to make sure that the gang’s all here. In essence I feel this movie is made more for the die-hard fan than the casual viewer, no harm in that after all I am sure they have been to see pretty much all in the series of movies that lead up to this one.
Well without giving too much away, the main villain of the peace is Thanos (Josh Brolin) who thinks that the population of the universe is a might too large and could do with some downsizing. Now I maybe simplifying it a bit too much but that at it’s heart is what it is all about and our set of Marvel superheroes have to stop his plans to thin the herd, so to speak. As I said earlier there are quite a few of them, in fact too many to mention in this little blog, but I would be very surprised if they have left any out.
If you liked what came before you are sure to enjoy this movie, if you are new to it all you might find it a little hard to follow, so your enjoyment maybe tempered somewhat.
The fans will love it and will return for more I am sure.
