*WARNING THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS*
Avengers Endgame is the final movie in the Avengers saga that has spanned over 20 different Marvel movies. We pick up right where Infinity War left off, with Avengers trying to cope with what happened after Thanos used the Infinity Stones to eliminate half of all life. Not much hope exists, until five years later when Antman emerges from the Quantum Realm and informs the Avengers that there may be a way to get everyone back. It is now up to the Avengers to retrieve the stones and undo what Thanos has done to restore order to the universe once and for all.
Like many previous Marvel movies, I thought Endgame did an amazing job of combining action and comedy with an interesting and well thought out plot. Although they didn’t really explain how time travel was actually possible, once that was established I thought the movie did a great job of navigating through it. I thought it was cool how the Avengers paired up into different teams to travel to different places to retrieve the infinity stones. It was almost like watching a series of mini-movies, and the flashbacks to different points in previous movies was fun to experience as well. Every single character played an important role, which was a great way to build up to the final battle.
All great movies have great villains and that’s exactly what Thanos is. The final battle at the end of the movie was nothing short of epic. I loved watching Thanos and his army battle each of the Avengers in the ultimate fight for the universe. I found it very interesting to hear Thanos’ new plan – he realized that the half of the universe that survived would never be able to deal with the half that they lost. Therefore, he now wanted the infinity stones to destroy the universe all together and create a new one. What makes Thanos a fascinating villain in my opinion is that he ultimately wants the universe to thrive, but in order to do so he must sacrifice those who are already living.
Overall, I thought this movie lived up to very high expectations and will go down as one of the most popular movies of all time. They did a great job of wrapping everything in up in a way that was not only satisfying and entertaining, but emotionally moving as well. It will be a very long time before we ever experience a phenomenon like the Avengers again.
MY FINAL RATING: 9.5/10
