The villain we’ve waited for since the beginning of the Marvel Universe. He’s large and strong enough to take down the Hulk, he is Thanos, the purple Titan. Thanos made his first appearance in “The Avengers” (2012) where he was a long-anticipated villain that everyone was talking about since the start of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Every time he made an appearance in the MCU people would speculate and theorize what his next move was but no one could truly predict his next course of action.
In “The Avengers: Infinity War” (2018) Thanos starts his crusade for the infinity stones by destroying Thor’s ship looking for the space stone. He begins with the ominous and foreshadowing line “I know what it’s like to lose. To feel so desperately that you’re right, yet to fail nonetheless. Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives. Or should I say, I have.” This Quote is very interesting because not only does it sound cool, it makes the audience curious of his background and how it ties into his next steps. Has he failed before at gathering the infinity stones? Has he tried to wipe out half of a race before and failed? The movie constantly has things that hook the watch and while it tallies a run time of two hours and forty minutes it doesn’t feel that long at all. Every second is so crucial to the story that you have to absorb it and it immerses you into the story. It’s very interesting how the movie portrays each moment.
You feel as though you are living out the movie in each scenario. Each character has their own mission and each of them are as important as the next. This draws you even deeper into the story. As Thanos gathers the stones he comes across the Soul Stone something he forced his daughter Gamora to help him find. This stone needs a sacrifice, a soul for a soul, something you love. Thanos hears this and begins to cry. Gamora begins to laugh and taunt him saying “You love no one and nothing.” Then someone says, “Those tears are not for him.” As that is being said Thanos turns around grabbing Gamora and with tears in his eyes says, “Sorry little one.” She fights him but eventually, he throws her over the cliff. He gets the soul stone and can continue his crusade. This is interesting because it shows Thanos as a real person who truly feels for his cause and what he is doing. Even though the means of doing it aren’t exactly moral.
In his pursuit for a “Better Universe”, he sacrifices just about everything and everyone he loves. In the end after the epic final battle, Thanos snaps his fingers and completes his mission. He comes face to face with a young Gamora and She asks “Did you do it?” he replies “Yes.” She questions “What did it cost you?” and with an emotional and hesitant voice “Everything” was his reply. In the pursuit of what he believed to be right, Thanos’ solution to everything, cost him everything. Someone who believes in their cause halfheartedly would never give everything to complete their task. Only someone who truly believes in every second of what they do is willing to sacrifice everything. This movie is amazing and packed with so much action. This a something children of all ages can enjoy, from its humor to its action it can engage any viewer. In the words of a fellow student, movie theater employee, and movie enthusiast, Isaac Kenyon “If you are considering a movie to watch in the future, this is a great movie for the whole family.”
