The hype around this film has been building for months, and now that a decent amount of time has passed for most readers to view it, a review seems fitting. The movie, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, had the biggest worldwide opening since 2002 with it earning $1,223,641,414 on opening day.
The movie received a 8.8/10 rating from IMDb, 95 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, and 78 percent on Metacritic. Every review I have seen online, heard from friends, and watched, has praised the film as a fitting conclusion to the Avengers movies, and I mostly agree.
While the movie does live up to expectations, the most surprising aspect of the film is its plot. For those who have seen the film, I am somewhat confident in believing that very few would have accurately predicted the plot of Endgame. This happens to be one of the most enjoyable aspects and bright spots of Endgame, as the directors incorporated everything that is great about Marvel and Avenger movies along with keeping the audience on their seats.
Nothing in this film seems certain to happen for our favorite superheroes, which is perfect for a genre of movies that always seems to have the good guys coming out on top. The action, script, humor, and of course, cast, is top notch in the film. The pacing and general structure of the plot is somewhat similar to that of Avengers Infinity War, which were both suitable and enjoyable.
A realization that came to me is that the emotional impact this film will have is heavily based on how invested the viewer is to the Marvel cinematic universe. For those who have watched most of the company’s superhero films in the past, a box of tissues may be needed. However, for a casual viewer such as myself, I found very few moments where the tear ducts started to creep up on me.
Avengers Endgame also did fairly well when it came to the musical score and did a wonderful job when it came to special effects, world building, and choreographing the fight scenes. All of these aspects here and mentioned above lead to an enjoyable experience for most everyone who goes to see it, and I commend the directors along with everyone included in production for creating such a fitting ending to a series of movies that has provided quality entertainment for more than a decade.
My final review of the film is a 9/10 and a must see movie for anyone who hasn’t yet, the film will not let you down.
