Twenty-three days have passed since Thanos wiped out the world’s population. The remaining Avengers get together to figure out how to fix the problem. The final idea is to go back in time to stop Thanos from succeeding.
The group tests the time machine until it works. They have to go to different years and different times. Of course, things go wrong while the people are in the past.
I found this film to be interesting, despite never being a huge Marvel Cinematic Universe fan. One scene I thought was funny was the one where the remaining people are testing the time machine and Scott, one of the guys, was their guinea pig. He became a child, old man, baby, and then returned to his actual age. It reminded me of that “Codename: Kids Next Door” episode where the delightful children had a special device that made one age forward or backwards.
It was three hours long. Although it was recommended that people not go to the bathroom during the movie, I actually had to. But I didn’t miss much.
Anyway, some scenes were amazing, some were intense, and a few were sad. Except for the time-machine experimenting moment, I didn’t get super-passionate about a lot of the story. And it’s probably because I’m not a big superhero movie fan.
That being said, there are some moments that stood out to me, aside from Scott changing ages.
One is where a few children approach Bruce Banner (who is only part Hulk, part man) and ask for a picture, which he gives permission to.
While discussing Bruce Banner or the Hulk, I found it somewhat humorous when he spotted his past Hulk form and the Hulk from the past complained about hating stairs. He had to go down them instead of taking the elevator.
But what I recently discovered is that it has a similar plotline to “The Fairly OddParents” special, “Channel Chasers.” I think that is just a coincidence, however.
Despite some good moments, I would rate this movie 3.5 out of 5 stars. I would still recommend it, though.
