Avengers: Endgame: Movie Review

Finally, we are at endgame. After more than a decade and twenty-one films, we are reaching a culminating point in the franchise. For what its worth, the end result is definitely worth the wait. The film running at more than a three hour clip ensures that it will be a juggernaut to comprehend and experience - but the way it was handled was near perfection. Expect excitement, surprises, and a deep emotional core that puts a satisfying note to characters we all have grown up with.

After their defeat to Thanos in "Avengers: Infinity War" and half of the universe was wiped out, the rest of the Avengers struggle to move on. They eventually decide to re-assemble and find a way to bring back the rest of the missing back to reality.
If "Infinity War" left all of us with a massive cliffhanger then "Endgame" went all out. The end result is a satisfying conclusion to characters we have grown up with and loved for more than a decade. The film focuses heavily on the original cast showing a great contrast to how much they have changed. The story arc for each one is surprisingly deep with several scenes dealing with each ones' insecurities, desires, and fears. Having more than a three hour helps to ensure that each arc has enough screen time to fully blossom. Unfortunately, the film takes a slight stumble with its heft and premise on how to reverse what Thanos has done in the previous film. The science of it all did not make sense and it had a lot of loopholes that the film fails to close but its quite minor considering how much more is at stake character-wise. The biggest surprise for us are the "surprises" littered throughout the film. The overall story was great and this is a MCU film that deviates from that predictable Marvel formula. The screenplay was spectacular as expected showcasing a mix of drama and light-hearted comedy. Overall, "Endgame" brings emotion and conclusion to a big chunk of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and a triumphant feat for the franchise.
Rating: 4 and a half reels
