Quick Summary, Endgame starts right after the events of Infinity War. Half the world got snapped, Tony Stark and Nebula are stuck in space, and the rest of the Avengers on Earth do not know what to do. One thing leads to another, Ant-Man comes back, and the Avengers are off to save the universe.
Long story short I would say I really, really enjoyed Endgame. As a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe(MCU) and just comics in general, I thought this movie was a great wrap up to the 11 years of story they have been telling. For a 3 hour movie I thought it flowed really well. I was getting antsy close to the end, but that is just because of my short attention span. Overall I thought they did a good job with pacing and making the movie run smoothly.
Having almost been a week since I saw it, I am still thinking about the movie. There is so much going on but you are still able to understand what is happening. Considering the movie is 3 hours long and trying to wrap up other stories, I thought they were able to add new information, in a good way, without confusing the audience. The way I worded that may have been a little confusing, but the Russo brothers did a good job of not confusing the movie’s audience. Since this movie has so many pieces of information that are from other movies in the MCU, you would think that you have to see all the movies just to understand this one. I feel Endgame does such a good job with story telling that people who are not fans of the MCU will enjoy this one.
All of the performances from the actors were great. I felt like every single one was giving it their all which just makes a movie 10x better, in my opinion. When you can see an actor giving it their all and having a good time with it just make it a better movie experience. It also helped that the actors were given great scripts. To me, Endgame has one of the best scripts in all of the MCU. I do not think there was a single joke,
or even a single line, in the movie that fell flat. The two writers, Marcus and McFeely, worked on other MCU movies and you can tell this isn’t their first rodeo. My hat is off to the writers of endgame.
Overall I thought this was one of the best MCU movies. There is just so much that is happening it is hard for me to talk about it with out spoiling it. But I try my best to get this out to you, the people, and I hope you like it. What did you think of Endgame if you saw it? Did you think they wrapped up the first 11 years of the MCU nicely or did you wish they did something differently? I would definitely recommend you see this movie in theaters if you are a fan of the MCU, but considering it has made over 2 billion in the first 2 weeks you probably have already seen it.
