Hey, everyone. Avengers: Endgame is a superhero film directed by the Russo Brothers and starring an ensemble cast. The film is the direct sequel to Infinity War and serves as the conclusion to the “Infinity Saga” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After Thanos defeated the Avengers, the survivors make a stand for one last battle against the Mad Titan. I had a great time with this film.

Avengers: Endgame feels like the total sum of the MCU delivered in one movie. The humor is present but not overwhelming. The action is entertaining and displays the abilities of each character. The characters are given time to display how they’re coping with the defeat of Infinity War. This led to a slow first act, but a necessary evil. We needed to see how our heroes deal with loss and their own faults. Once the second act gets going, the film shifts into high gear. The final act is amazing. Everything you could have wanted to see was on display.

This movie’s ultimate strength, is that it knows what its fans want and delivers. Some of the moments in the third act had me audibly excited. The fan service is heavy but makes sense in the plot. The emotion, from the very first scene, is well delivered. When the characters need to be serious, they are and it’s effective.

If there is any weakness to the film, its just that the first act is slow. Its necessary, but still slow. The movie takes its time to reestablish these characters and it will deviate heavily from the path we’ve treaded before. Thankfully this is early in the film and the following acts reward the audience for waiting. The third act can be a little chaotic because of all that’s happening, but I doubt many would consider this problematic.

Overall, thank you Marvel. 11 years of quality films and they led to this fantastic payoff. Emotionally I was elated, saddened, and satisfied by all I saw on display. The long first act served to set the stage for our heroes and the stakes. The second act is filled with fan service, most of which is welcome. The final act is truly a comic book epic come to life. I highly recommend this film for all audiences.
