This post contains spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War.
Well, bloody hell.
Infinity War is a stunning achievement that brings years of storylines and character arcs to a head, finally pays off on the looming threat of Thanos and the Infinity Stones, and balances over 30 different characters from across the Marvel Cinematic Universe in what is a damn good time at the cinema.
The movie pits Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and a select few others against Thanos and his children the Black Order in what's effectively a thrilling heist flick that turns into a shocking war movie. The stakes are genuine, there's a real threat, and Thanos 'doing it himself' means he ain't f**king around.
The Mad Titan lives up to his reputation in an intense final hour, which seems him collect all the Stones and snap his fingers, making good on his goal of wiping out half the universe and killing a number of heroes in the process. It leaves you flabbergasted, shook, and with a number of big questions that we're in desperate needs of answers to.
