Last night April 25, I watched Avengers Endgame the conclusion to what Marvel Studios is calling the Infinity Saga. Last year I reviewed the third Avengers movie Infinity War (without spoilers), so this year I've decided to do the same. Feel free to continue reading even if you haven't seen the movie, because I won't include any spoilers and remember #DontSpoilTheEndgame
Avengers Endgame is the conclusion of the Infinity Saga that consists of 21 Marvel Movies beginning (in order of release) with Iron Man in 2008 and concluding with Captain Marvel earlier this year. Prior to watching the movie one of the most important things for me was that the movie would do a good job of closing up the various storylines we've seen in all the previous movies, and while I won't go into detail about how this was done in an attempt to avoid spoilers I'll say that the movie was the perfect conclusion to the saga and payed homage to all the movies that came before it.
The first hour of the movie started somewhat slowly, but was crucial to the plot and it did include one epic scene. The second hour of the movie lacked action, but was filled with nostalgia and important plot points. The last hour of the movie though was perhaps the greatest hour of any Marvel movie. The last hour of the movie was so beautifully done both in terms of plot, cinematically and visually.
The movie does a wonderful job of focusing on the original six Avengers in a beautiful way, while giving story arcs to the other character in the movie as well. My only complaint is that some characters deserved more screen time, but it is understandable that the focus would be on the original six avengers and that not every character could have a lot of screen time.
It is filled with plot twists and most major parts of the plot are not easily predictable. I suggest walking into the theater with a clear mind free from all theories because the likelihood that you could predict the conclusion of this movie is not very likely. In fact most of the scenes from the trailers are not even in the movie.
There is so much more I'd like to talk about, but I'm afraid of spoiling the movie. Instead I will say that without a doubt this is the best Marvel movie of the Infinity Saga and if you haven't already seen it I highly recommend watching the movie. You won't be disappointed and I can guarantee you'll experience a wide range of emotions including; excitement, nostalgia, anger and sadness among others.
In a few weeks when I feel it is appropriate to review the movie with spoilers I will do so (probably after watching it at least one more time) until then this review will have to suffice.
