Did You Know?

Trivia

(at around 48 mins) In this movie, Thanos (Josh Brolin) is questioning The Collector (Benicio Del Toro) about one of the Infinity Stones, during this scene, Thanos asks The Collector "Where is the stone?" This may or may not be a nod to another movie in which Del Toro starred, Snatch (2000) where Del Toro's character asks another "Where is the stone?", referring to a diamond in that movie. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 30 mins) In Black Panther, when King T'Chaka shows up at the beginning, N'Jobu and James (Zuri) bow before him to revere him as a king. In this movie, however, Bruce Banner attempts to bow before King T'Challa, who then states "We don't do that here." However, in the same movie, when Shuri bows for T'Challa in modern-day Wakanda, he recognizes this as a joke and tells her to stop. This could suggest that he had changed reverence policies since his father's reign. See more »

Quotes

Asgardian Distress Call: This is the Asgardian refugee vessel Statesman. We are under assault. I repeat, we are under assault. The engines are dead, life support failing. Requesting aid from any vessel within range. We are 22 jump points out of Asgard. Our crew is made up of Asgardian families. We have very few soldiers here. This is not a warcraft. I repeat, this is not a warcraft!

User Reviews

 
Unlike anything ever done in the history of cinema
14 August 2018 | by kjames-26542See all my reviews

This movie is the beginning of the culmination of Marvel's masterfully woven cinematic universe. Beginning back in 2008 with iron man, we are finally seeing the results of all the movies have been pointing to; and it did not disappoint. Thanos is a complex villain, with deeper and more interesting desires than just "world domination." The dilemmas all the characters face in this movie (both the heroes and the villains) are truly thought provoking and leave you on the edge of your seat. No other set of movies has beeen so involved, so expanded, and encompassed so many story lines/characters and previous movies. The sheer amount of star power alone in this film is insane; and they do a masterful job of weaving all these unique and various characters into a common storyline.
