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 has never been more uncertain.Written by
(at around 51 mins) Thanos' reality bending attacks on Mantis and Drax during the fight on Knowhere are callbacks to a scene in the original comics, where Nebula was transformed into ribbons, and Drax was sliced into cubes. See more »
(at around 12 mins) The first time we see Tony Stark, he is walking with Pepper Potts in a park, discussing. Tony has a hoodie on his shoulders, its sleeves tied in a knot covering the miniature arc reactor on his chest. During their exchange, Pepper unties the knot to talk about the device on Tony's chest. Right after that, cutting from a three-quarters shot to a close up on Tony, the hoodie disappears and is nowhere to be seen for the remainder of the scene, up till the moment we are taken inside the Sanctum Sanctorum.

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!

An outstanding watch
This is exactly the sorta thing I want from an Avengers film! Full blown, no punches pulled action. In that regard, it's an outstanding watch!
Despite knowing practically little about the MCU up until a few weeks ago, I still knew this was a film that was going to see - so to speak - excrement hit the fan... and boy did it! It's a great ride.
Like 'Captain America: Civil War' did, 'Avengers: Infinity War' does an incredible job at juggling the gargantuan number of characters. It's ridiculous, but totally awesome, how many faces we see appear again. I thought they got the screen time for all, more or less, down to a T. Not an easy job, that.
Speaking of the cast, it's Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and Josh Brolin who stand out most in my memory. Them three are excellent, especially the latter. Away from those lot, it's very cool to see all the other worlds - including from 'Doctor Strange' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy' - come together into one film. As for new additions, there aren't many - Peter Dinklage being the pick.
There are many references that I had already become aware of just via the internet, so it was quite amusing seeing them all unfold here and there. The effects looked great to me, as they have basically all the way up until this point of the MCU. The comedy is good again, also.
Needless to say, I can't wait to see 'Avengers: Endgame'!
