I solemnly vow not to spoil any plot points or revelations for you in this movie review. I will only say this: it was worth the wait.
Avengers: Endgame exceeded my expectations. Though it’s very, very long, it moves quickly, and there’s virtually no wasted time. Every single minute of this movie counts. It’s a big finale to a very big story, which necessitates quite a bit of time.
Furthermore, it gives you exactly what you want–even if you don’t know what you want. Every single Marvel movie has led to this moment. That’s not an exaggeration. We’ve stuck with Marvel for 10 years now, and they reward our loyalty heartily.
You’ve seen some of the science of this movie in the commercials, and yes, it’s a little hokey and doesn’t hold up to much inspection, but the quantum realm element isn’t what this movie is about. This movie is all about character. Every character gets their due. Every character has a moment. Every character.
Endgame will send you on a roller-coaster of emotions. There are many moments you’ll want to cheer out loud. There are times you’ll laugh your butt off. But there are some heartbreaking moments as well–moments that will absolutely make you cry. I imagine that comes as no surprise.
In the end, Endgame satisfied. No, it more than satisfied. It drew this 10 year journey to an end while opening up new possibilities. I honestly could not be happier with the execution of this film.
