T'Challa, the King of Wakanda, rises to the throne in the isolated, technologically advanced African nation, but his claim is challenged by a vengeful outsider who was a childhood victim of T'Challa's father's mistake.

Steve Rogers, a rejected military soldier transforms into Captain America after taking a dose of a "Super-Soldier serum". But being Captain America comes at a price as he attempts to take down a war monger and a terrorist organization.
Samuel L. Jackson
As Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world, he teams up with a fellow Avenger and S.H.I.E.L.D agent, Black Widow, to battle a new threat from history: an assassin known as the Winter Soldier.
Samuel L. Jackson,
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.Written by
Proxima Midnight, the female member of The Black Order, normally wears a black horned helmet in the comic books. This was changed to organic horns growing from her head, to avoid similarities with Hela's distinctive helmet in Thor: Ragnarok. See more »

this movie must probably cost a billion by the sheer amount of superstars and effects (#mostExpensiveMovieAndbiggestGlobalOpeningOfAlltimes)
I will match the cost by getting a 3D ticket & 4 beers.
9* - first beer
I wonder why they still have such clumsy characters like Thanos who look like cheap rubber masks of the last millenium. I will tolerate his woodcarving-beard and club-fingers as a badly shide-show.
8* - second beer
Great to see so many characters - the only problem is that they only get shown for a few seconds so I can't really get into them - not to mention that there is only time for short spurts of their action.
Well, but the FX are great (but the content does not really match the form).
7* - third beer
Yeah, the action unfortunately is not connected - somehow there is no real threat. Made me think of the difference of a story and a plot:
Every movie has a story, but how it is arranged is a plot, and this here seems to be a patchwork.
6* - fourth beer
I don't know what Marvels' definition of superhero is - mine has something to do with inner spiritual strength, for the masses it seems to be a mix between massive powers and jokes. Ok, so be it - to take it lightly I bought the beers.
5* - pee break and getting tacos & two more beers
By that point I have a feeling that the movie will go on for much longer and that I won't miss anything.
Hence my break and more compensatory consumption.
4* - tacos
Didn't have the feeling that I missed much in that patchwork of uncorrelated flashes and sounds.
5* - fifth beer
Maybe I did miss something, because the plot seems to go in a direction which isn't as light-footed as I did expect from guardians of the galaxy.
4* - sixth beer
No, I missed nothing, just another cliché woven into the fabrics of a commercial hollywood-movie-recipy.
3* - end
I feel spiritually empty by the "pixellation" of the characters - quickly pee it of before the post credits come in which I now put all my hopes.
2* - post credit scene
More pixellation - more emptiness.
I now spend a fortune on an event which did disappoint me.
I am sure it was me and I had a bad day.
(although the Hulk really didn't convince me)
1* - next day
After having watched a few "ending explained" it was not me who missed something, but this was all but a huge cliffhanger for the next one to come.
Verdict - to avoid depression of your soul and your wallet, you the "late-commers" who don't HAVE to watch it in a hype:
Wait a year for the next one to come out and then watch this one with friends just before going to the cinema to the next one.
Maybe - just maybe all the disappointments will then make sense as temporary downs needed for a larger storyline.
But if they do - somehow I get tired of everything in fantasy series and movies these days gets twisted whenever viewers disapprovals demands it.
It's taken on the attitude of a sulky child which when loosing simply rewrites the rules of the game.
