This is the end

Just a quick tip: If you haven’t been following the illustrious Marvel cinematic universe, it is strongly suggested you watch more than a few Marvel movies before watching Endgame. Since you may find it difficult to make that kind of time, you should least watch Avengers: Infinity War, because Endgame is a direct sequel and follows just after the events that transpired in Infinity War.

After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins. The grave course of events set in motion by the mad titan Thanos (Josh Brolin), wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers’ ranks with the loss of allies, friends and even families. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers assemble once more to take a decisive final stand in order to undo the actions of Thanos in Marvel Studios' grand conclusion to a cinematic universe of 22 films, Avengers: Endgame.

Go watch it… that’s it, that’s the review.

Just kidding.

This movie honestly deserves the highest praise for what it achieved in its 3 hour runtime. Even calling it a movie feels wrong. It’s an experience. It boasts with outstanding visuals (which Marvel movies have become known for) as well as amazing set pieces packed with immensely satisfying action.

As mentioned, Endgame is a culmination of 22 movies, and this translates into the characters present in the movie. Given the events of Infinity War, it’s safe to say that those characters reached the ultimate low point and Endgame doesn’t shy away from these experiences, showing how they are trying to cope and deal with the fallout of what happened. These make for some emotional scenes and some real interactions between characters which is made all the more meaningful given that we – the audience – have grown with these characters for over 11 years.

I find it impossible to say anything negative about Avengers: Endgame. I got chills more than once in this movie (even teared up a bit) and was on the edge of my seat for about 95% of it, it’s really THAT good.

WE give it a 6/5!
