After twenty something movies, non-stop action and superheroes doing superhero things, “Avengers: Endgame” concludes the saga, that is until the studios decide make more anyhow.
After the shocking events of Avengers: Infinity War, in which Thanos wiped out half of the human population, the remaining avengers team up, and attempt to undo Thanos’s inhumane actions. Together, Captain America, Iron Man, Black Window, Thor, The Hulk, Hawkeye, Ant-Man, War Machine, Nebula, Rocket, and Captain Marvel will attempt the impossible in order to bring peace back to a broken world.
It’s pretty difficult to discuss “Avengers: Endgame” without spoiling anything, that is unless you’ve been on the internet within the last week, in which case you may have been spoiled already. The movie is so huge, that it’s best to just go see it as soon as you can.
“Endgame” has that finality and climactic feel to it, like when you watch the final season of you’re favorite tv series. It’s wraps up characters’ plot lines, gives you some heartfelt goodbyes and of course, breaks you’re heart in many ways as well.
The actors preform well as these beloved characters, but that’s not news to you if you’ve seen the previous twenty films. Robert Downey Jr., in particular has done a spectacular job portraying Iron Man and his cocky humor and self-centeredness, while still portraying him as a human being with a big heart.
As with previous Marvel films, the humor is plentiful. “Ant-Man” and “Guardians of the Galaxy”, are among the funniest, while Avengers: Infinity War plays more on shock value. “Endgame” has a refreshing use of both. While, many scenes are played for laughs and light-heartedness, others attempt to make you nervous about the character they know you love.
The build up to the climax of “Avengers: Endgame” takes some time, and can even drag a certain points. However, if you’re a huge fan of this series, that won’t make much of a difference once the movies gets to the huge payoff. The climactic action sequence is one of the most thrilling scenes in years. If you go see “Avengers: Endgame” for one reason, that should be it.
Rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and some language.
