"Avengers: Infinity War" is excellent. This is how the story goes: 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.
The cast led by Robert Downey Jr. (excellent as usual as Tony Stark / Iron Man) is excellent. The directing by Joe & Anthony Russo is excellent. The screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely is excellent.

This is an excellent, well-crafted and entertaining movie that is well-made. Robert Downey Jr. is excellent as usual as Tony Stark, and his supporting cast, led by Chris Hemsworth (as Thor), Mark Ruffalo (as Bruce Banner / Hulk), Chris Evans (as Steve Rogers / Captain America) & Scarlett Johansson (as Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow) is just as excellent and solid as he is. Joe & Anthony Russo has directed another excellent movie in the MCU. This is (or was) one of the best movies of spring 2018 and is also one of the best movies of the year, so far.
