Seven Gunn reviews “Avengers: Infinity War” on ChicagoNow


Do we all live or do we all die? Who stays and who goes? You will not know the answers to these questions until you see ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. At first, I thought the movie was about fighting a war “infinitely” like ‘X-men’s Days of Future Past’. Time to throw down the gauntlet…so to speak?? But it really is about Thanos  trying to obtain six infinity stones (reality, power, time, space, mind,  and soul) into his gold-plated gauntlet, so he can save half the universe (by destroying it). The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy must assemble to stop Thanos from finding the stones and becoming the most powerful being in the universe. Literally, all hell breaks loose and the Marvel Universe is turned upside down. The story begins as Thanos (Josh Brolin) reeks chaos and destruction of everything in his path… while retrieving the power stone on an Asgardian ship from the planet Xandar. Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeeley had the tremendous task of garnering the passion of all the previous movies into one power-packed story! Directors Anthony and Joe Russo are back at it again. Amazing cinematography by Trent Opaloch. This team of writers, directors, and cinematography have a great understanding of depth, pacing, and timing.
