MOVIE REVIEW: Avengers Endgame is the perfect End to All Original Marvel Movies

Something you can’t wait to see is Avengers: Endgame, we all know that’s going to be the top movie of this year or at least in the top 5. It’s everything you’ve ever dreamed a Marvel movie could be. It’s a three hour adrenaline shot to the heart featuring mysteries solved, consequences suffered, shock, aw and delight. Some scenes are so big and huge that it takes a while to comprehend what is happening. Others are so small, emotional and poignant that you’ll hear a people sniffling because it’s so touching. More than anything else though is that Endgame is the complete, complex and satisfying end to the last decade of films and characters we’ve all fallen in love with.

The movie is the theatrical equivalent of going 15 rounds with a great fighter… such as Black Widow or Captain Marvel, it’s amazing. It’s stressful to watch at times but also really relieving too. Once the credits roll you can applaud yourself for investing sooooo much time into the Marvel Universe that could be compared to being as big and significant as Harry Potter or maybe even Star Wars.

Endgame is the sequel to last years Avengers: Infinity War. The films dense complicated main story centers on that, half the universe being on and it’s up to the Avengers to solve the problem. How they attempt that, or if they’re successful, is more revealing than anyone should tell.

Most people walked out of the theater being absolutely speechless, someone said that they don’t tend to fall in love with superhero films but this one was different, it had meaning and emotions, not just your stereotypical fighting every single second. It had mystery, it made you sit on the edge of your seat being anxious af, it’s amazing how a superhero movie can pull that off so well.

Like Infinity War and Civil War before it, Endgame is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and once again, that court four have created an insanely ambitious story. The story of Endgame gets more and more complex as the story goes on, making you constantly wonder if everything will workout. Even with it being three hours, it feels like there’s not enough time to fit everything in you’d wish there could be. The film may include Marvel’s less prominent characters, such as Rocket, Ant-Man, War Machine and more, it does focus on the original Avengers in addition to the ongoing battle with Thanos, Endgame, gives Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Thor, Hilk and Hawkeye their each own unique narratives, adding a beating heart to this already robust film. Each character goes on an insane and hugely transformative journey… some not working out. After a decade of seeing all these characters in movies, it’s gratifying and emotional to see them struggle on large scale level.

Avengers: Endgame is in theaters everywhere April 26th.
