The Avengers assembled for the emotional and long-awaited sequel to 2018’s Infinity War. After 21 other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which turned 11 years old this year, we’ve reached the season finale, so to speak, Avengers: Endgame was a phenomenal way to cap off this epic journey.
After watching every second of this three hour and two minute film – with no bathroom break 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 – I left the theater floored from what I just saw. The character development, the call backs, the heartbreak, the laughs, every emotion you can think of was captured in this movie. The Russo Brothers even found a way to integrate things from a show outside of the MCU into this film. I walked out of the theater thinking – with no hyperbole – that there is no way any comic book movie is going to be able to top what I just watched. The first 10 minutes of this film were everything that you could ask for after the events of Infinity War. The character arc for a certain character has to be the best character arc of any character over the course of multiple films. The call backs from other MCU movies weren’t just in the film to pad up it’s run time, instead they made sense with the film’s narrative. Just like those call backs, the comedy never felt forced because everything the characters had to say fits with their characterization from other films. Narratively, the conclusion of multiple storylines were wrapped up and Endgame found a way to address the questions the viewer may be asking when it comes to key plot points. The appropriately titled film felt like the endgame of a genre and the MCU assembled the cream of the crop.
