After the impact of Thanos’ “snap” in Avengers: Infinity War, the remaining team has to cope with the loss of more than just their comrades, but the loss of 50% of life on Earth. The question is what can they do, and if possible; to avenge the fallen?
Even though the runtime is over three hours, you don’t really feel it. Just to let you know, there is no intermission, so go to the bathroom beforehand, because every moment of the film is important. This movie needed to be three hours long so that you can get more than just a sequel, but you get a sense of completion of everyone’s arc. In it’s own right, Avengers: Endgamewas a very well thought out ending to a 22-movie epic, and at the same time a beautiful doorway to a new expanded universe.
There is so much going on, that you will need to watch this more than once just to take it all in. You won’t feel lost; you’re just going to need a moment (or several). Not to mention that you just plain old want to see it again. This is indeed the end of the “Infinity Saga”. Never has there been a comic book movie that reached this scale and there probably won’t be one for quite some time.
A range of emotions will wash over you for 181 minutes. You will laugh, cry, and want to stand up and cheer multiple times throughout, because this is a true nod to the fans, in ways you couldn’t even imagine. The visuals alone will astound you. We’re talking top-level special effects! Everyone (and I mean everyone) brought his or her A-game; so there’s no sense of anyone lacking, or dragging the movie along. Understand that yes, there are many over-the-top moments, but they are brilliantly cradled by solid character building. With such a wonderful soundtrack, this is truly a comic book come-to-life. In the Press Screening there wasn’t an after credit scene, but there is slight speculation that in the official theatrical release, there may be one (so stay in your seat).
This is more than just a movie, but an experience for those who are comic book fans, and for those who follow the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Heck, it’s great for those who aren’t a fan of the MCU. Just go see Avengers: Endgame for yourself you won’t be disappointed!
Great job Russo Brothers, you just made the most epic comic book movie in history! Thank you Stan Lee for this wonderful universe! Excelsior!
