Avengers: Endgame Movie Review

Updated on April 25, 2019

Nathan is a film critic and aspiring author with a true passion for the film industry & hopes his writings will help launch his careers.

It's here, the final film in the Infinity Saga, bringing a conclusion to the first 22 films of the MCU and, at the same time, starting anew. Every film has its downs, and this one was no exception, but the majority of the film was breathtakingly positive. The Russo brothers originally stated that Infinity War and Endgame were two completely different films as far as the tone is concerned and now I see what they meant. Infinity War was mostly serious and non-stop intensity. Endgame is a bit comical and takes its time getting to the main plot. In fact, there's only one real action sequence in the film. The rest of it is equivalent to Ocean's Eleven.

The film follows the remaining heroes left behind after The Decimation. They are struggling to cope with their failure and also with how to move on with their lives. When Scott Lang finally escapes the Quantum Realm, he approaches Captain America with an outlandish idea: use the Quantum Realm to go back in time and grab the Infinity Stones before Thanos does. If they can pull this off, then there's a chance they can bring back everyone they lost and stop Thanos once and for all.

There's not a whole lot I can say without giving away spoilers, so let me speak on the only problem I had with the film. When we first see Thor again after the prologue, he's a drunken mess with a beer gut the size of Rhode Island. Thor's storyline became parodical and ridiculous until the time jump begins. I realize they were trying to carry over the tone from Thor: Ragnarok but the Russos are better with drama than they are with comedy. Some things should just be left alone.

Now, I'm sure the big question on everyone's mind is: who, if anyone, dies? I'll be writing a spoiler review in a day or two once the top fans have had a chance to go see it. For now, I'll just say this: there are a lot of tearjerking moments throughout the film. Not all of them deal with a death. Some are just so powerful and moving that you can't help but shed a few tears.

In conclusion, I felt the film did the series justice and brought it all to a fitting end and a hopeful new beginning. We'll see what the future holds with the next film, Spider-Man: Far From Home, which releases in July. I give Avengers: Endgame a respectable 3.5 out of 4.
