I do not intend to provide any spoilers, so you can read this review if you just want to know whether Avengers: Endgame is worth watching or not, if it’s going to break your heart, and if it’s worth sitting 181 minutes on a chair (which is no small feat.)
And the answer is yes to all three.
Now, let’s get to the review itself.
I think that Avengers: Endgame is three movies into one: the first part is kind of boring, and provides us with a sort of anticlimactic scene that would happen in real life, or if the producers were intent on some sort of “artistic realism.”
The second third of the movie is reminiscent of Thor: Ragnarok. It’s quite funny, and it will surely both appreciate the screenwriters ingenuity, but also the way the characters interact with each other.
Now, about that last third of this movie. It’s epic. There’s a lot of drama. It’s going to break your heart. Cliche as it sounds, it’s quite the emotional rollercoaster, as you ask yourself if the good guys are actually going to win this time.
There are, of course, entire scenes that appear to have been created into existence by avid fans wishing some sort of retribution for their favorite characters dying in Infinity War. And, truth be told, they are wonderfully done, so much so that they almost make you want to jump from the seat and shout.
All in all, this movie is well worth your time, and I think it sets the tone for the future Marvel movies. Not too dark, not too grim, not too serious. After all, we’re talking about superhero movies.
